Laura, Jackie, and I went to the 11:15 gathering and were greeted with hugs, handshakes, and awesome worship music. I would have been more than content just singing forever due to the shear energy (and the Spirit) filling the space, forget the packed quarters (even the pastor said that they are going to be moving to two services starting October 3rd so they don’t break fire code).
The message was about intentional community. We are living and doing life together: the good, the bad, the moments of happiness and the times where you’d rather crawl into a dark place to chill out for awhile. The pastor reminded us that we are to hold one another accountable and that our walk with God is reflected in our walk with one another. This couldn’t be more pertinent to MCPC as there are only 36 of us and we are a community.
Right now I’m hanging out in the office (as this is my job to blog among other things). Best job ever, might I add. I’m listening to Feist. I’ve already had two classes today and have two more later on, one being my MCPC class.
We also have Tasty Treat Tuesday, which is the best thing ever. That takes me up to about 10-ish so who knows what the rest of the night will bring.
Here are a few links ya’ll should check out:
Epiphany Fellowship: http://www.epiphanyfellowship.org/ It is the church we checked out on Sunday. If you are interested in attending, starting October 3rd they will be having two services, one at 10am and the other at 11:45am. Until then, there is one service and it begins at 11:15.
Freaks and Geeks: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0193676/ This has become a new tradition of my roomies and I. We crank out a few episodes before calling it a night. The best.
“My Moon My Man” by Feist: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ltYq-jalYm0 I’m currently listening to this song on repeat, not to mention the entire album, The Reminder. If you are into female singer-songwriters, I shouldn’t even have to tell you that this album is a staple.
Anyway! Here is to the ever present word in Messiah College’s dictionary, “Community!”… oh and to good music. Hope you are indulging in both.
