One of the good things about being employed on a pastoral staff at a church is that you typically do not have to be in the office on Fridays. Because on Sundays you spend about zero quality time with your family, Fridays are a time to make up for that. Our preschool ministry has several “playdates” throughout the summer at various locations. Today, the playdate (Have I already written that word twice?) was at the riverwalk area near the Broad River. Since my wife is 10 weeks pregnant and gets really tired really easy, I came along with her and my son.

Four mothers, eight kids, one dad. It wasn’t exactly what all dads would like to spend their days’ off doing. I’d much rather be playing bad golf somewhere. However, what an excellent time to spend with my family, church member families, and experience a day in the life of mothers. Let me just say that while us men are off at work slaving hard, our wives are taking strollers out of the car, buckling kids up, watching them run around and eat each others food, take each others passies (I have no idea how to spell that word) and do typical preschooler stuff.

Mothers everywhere, God bless you.

Also, on Wednesday, January 9th Music and Missions returns starting at 6 pm.

Also, Pastor Charlie will be teaching a survey of what Baptists believe on the 9th. Parents, meet in the Temporary Office (old Blue Room) at 6 pm.
