My KC Adventure

About being a dad and Leading the puppet team at my church

Drafted Part 3

They were spying on me Sunday!  The KC coordinator and her two cohorts were watching me from the back while I was the Kidmo MC for the Eleven O’clock service.

Who knows it might have been while I was passing out balls for team points, or maybe it was while we were doing all the motions for this weeks “Memory Max,” or it might have been while we were watching Johnny Rodger throw up all the rotten fruit he tried to eat from a dumpster!

(“Eeeeeeeeeeeeeewwwwwwwww, gross!

Turn to your neighbor and say ‘That’s NAS-teeeeee!'”)

All I know is after all the kids were dissmised they pounced on me to give me their report.  It seems I’ve been just about drafted into staying on to help out once the summer session ends.

I told them they were too late.  The Holy Spirit and I had already worked it out.  Actually He’s the one that works it out and we just say,

“Yes, Lord!”

Talk about getting drafted!  😉

Whew!

Sunday went smoothly, although from time to time my daughter had to remind me to do something. (Oops!)

Meanwhile as all bible teachers know, first the teacher has to be taught the lesson.   And when the lesson is patience . . . oh my…!

Who’d a Thunk it?

Back in the day when I was a member of the Holier than most, “Jesus Only,” cult if you had told me that one day there would be over 800 fellowships in America that follow a “One Church, Many Locations” pattern, I would have scoffed in your face.

“You mean everyone watches the senior pastor on a jumbo-tron screen and he’s not even in the building?  That can’t work!”

Well yes it can.  And it does!  In fact it frees up allot more space for growth and sets allot of people free to minister more effectively.  And making more and better disciples is what it’s ALL about.

Meanwhile back in those days if you had told me that I would drive 10 miles from my home in my small city to go to a church in the suburbs I’d have said,

“Get thee behind me!”

Especially if you had said the church was in the Town of Halfmoon.

“Halfmoon?  No Way!”

Way!  In fact I’ve never felt like I belonged more than I’ve felt now, and I got knit in so fast.  Part of it is God’s timing part of it’s the people and allot of it’s knowing that I don’t have to try so hard to prove myself.   Of course much of it has to with the fact that it took 10 years to get me out of a cult.  But it took another 2o something years to get the cult out of me!

But here I am.  Proud to belong to a satellite church that draws in part from the same area as the old cult church did.  And it feels so good to be SO OK with that!

Who’d a thunk it?!

And now it’s time to take it to the next level!  To go from being a classroom helper to a facilitator!  AKA a summer CO-OP Kidmo MC!

GASP!

Pray for me!

(I know it’s gonna be a blast!)  🙂

Me and the Wii 2

Yesterday was a special day at Kid’s Celebration.

NOT ONLY was a able to prepare the classroom without needing my cheat sheet,

NOT ONLY because I’m getting to know the kids better, (Thank You Jesus!)

BUT for the first time!

I successfully  set up and played a game on the Wii

Whoo hoo!

This could be the only place where someone can say without fear of getting locked up,

“I learned how to Wii today!”  😉

Our Seaside Adventure

Last Sunday we were on our way down to the Jersey shore for our annual ocean fix. The Lord really blessed our time down there. I’d write more about it here but to go off topic on a blog set up for a specific purpose is

*not KEWL!*

That’s why for my general things I started “The Lucky Loser,” (Because in God’s Kingdom when you lose you win!) and for political stuff there’s “Larry’s Internet Soapbox.”   Because some people down in Washington and Albany REALLY need to just … (WHOOPS  my bad!)

But speaking of Kid’s Celebration and Kidmo the Jersey shore is the perfect place to put on a pair of sunglasses and call everyone …  “DUDE!”

(Until you get thwaped on the head that is)
