My KC Adventure

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

My Post Easter Puppet Adventure

It would be nice if we found our digital camera so that frustrated photog me could maybe take a picture of my puppets.

(Rather than using stock internet pictures)

**********************************************************

Or better yet bribe someone to video them in action.

My puppets names are Elwood and Dimitri.

Elwood is a good name to yell for when he gets in trouble or frustrates his older brother Dimitri.

It’s like a certain chipmunk,

ALVIN!

*************************************************************************************************

“Elwood, what’s special about Easter?”

“Getting an Easter Basket filled with toys”

“No, try again,”

“Chocolate bunnies!”

“No, try again,”

“An Easter Egg Hunt!”

“ELWOOD! You silly goose!  Jesus rose again on Easter Sunday!”

Swamped!

It’s a good thing I hang out in the KC wing after my puppet show is finished.  Thanks to Daylight Saving Time half of our nine o’clock service kids showed up for the 11 o’clock service.  Which means,

WE WERE SWAMPED!!!


*************************************************************************

To make matters worse one of the regular teachers was away so they had to combine one of the classes already.  Then when you add the fact an unusual amount were attending our late service,

WE WERE SWAMPED!!!

Thankfully God knows what we need before we ask Him.  And every joint supplies just like the bible says the church is supposed to work.  Especially a church where God has sent so many talented people.

Real Hope!

There’s real hope after all folks.

A new generation is rising up full of faith and full of worship and love for their creator.

All over the world in churches big and small people are dedicated to teaching, mentoring and disciplining the next generation for Christ.

This is where our new pastors, evangelists missionaries and all sorts of great leaders will be coming from.

This song is a favorite of mine. It’s the Hill song Kids with “Super Strong God!”

When I see all the kids at my church Grace North really worshiping God like the children in this video it brings tears to my eyes.

Chances are, the same thing happens to you.  🙂

The Clock is Ticking!

The clock is counting down!  Kid’s Fest is just two weeks away, when Operation Andrew goes into full swing!  And like everything else they do my kids are viewing it as a competition.

“I’m going to invite three friends!”

“Oh yeah!  Well, I’m going to invite 4!”

I’m ready for any questions parents might ask.  At least our church has a good web site so people know we’re all about keeping it real for God and nothing to do with brainwashing.

Besides, everyone knows our two children are normal.  My son loves The Lord but he also loves to watch WWE wrestling and play Pokemon on his Nintendo DS.

My daughter is just as apt to invite someone to roller skating and to a High School Musical Themed Party as she is to invite someone to church.

As for me, I’m pacing the floor.  Once again I’ve been drafted.  This time to help out with entertainment.  I’ll be doing a puppet show in two weeks.

Looks like all those crazy character voices I do will come in handy for something after all.

“Right Dimi!?  (High pitch) 🙂

“You said it, Elwood!”  (Throaty voice) 😉

My Holy Spirit Missions Buzz

The Holy Spirit

It was a Holy Spirit missions buzz, from a man named buzz.

Buzz Maxey was the guest speaker at church this morning for missions Sunday.  He is a missionary to Papua, Indonesia.

Throughout the years I’ve heard dozens of missionary sermons and after a while if you’re not careful you can become jaded.  They can all start to sound the same after a while.

“Yeah, yeah yeah!  We all need to ask God what is our part is in missions.”

Not yesterday!

Not after getting drafted (willingly) into ministry.  Yesterday while brother Buzz was preaching,

I got “buzzed” by The Holy Spirit!

It was more like . . .

You all need to ask God! (ZAP!)

What is your part

in missions?  (POW!)

So I did.  “God, what is my part in missions?”

Answer : “Think of ways to get the kids more involved in missions.”

Reply:  “YES LORD!  SIR!”

So after the service I touched base with our “KC” coordinator who told me she’s thinking on the same lines as me.

So we’ll see what we come up with.

Talk about a Holy Spirit missions buzz.  😉

Argh!

Once again my daughter Katie is putting in more time helping out his summer at church than am. Dear old dad was sidelined this week with sinus problems.

As anyone with allergies knows this has been one tough year. My sinuses have been a proverbial thorn in my side my whole life. But like Paul I can say God’s grace is sufficient for me.

That’s a good thing since I cant take aspirin anymore. ARGH!
