This has been a good week. We went up to Morgantown, WV to spend a few days with Jan's sister and her husband. Wednesday and today, I mowed the yard. I hadn't mowed since July 2 and it has only been in the last week and a half that the grass has grown. Yesterday, I volunteered at the World Vision table at the Willow Creek Leadership Summit. It was interesting, and I realized how far I have come from the attractional church model with the pastor as CEO. I still came away with a few good thoughts.
