Alive '07 & Chicken Bar-B-Que

This weekend, I was at Alive '07. This was the first time for me to be there. I have always done ICHTHUS. I am still trying to figure out which one I like more. If you want music - go to Ichthus. If you want more relaxing atmosphere - lake, swimming, laying out in the sun ... etc .. go to Alive.

From a music preference for the weekend ... I once again thought that Toby Mac put on a great show. Jon from Switchfoot just made me shake my head. I am not sure what is up with him. More on the concerts later.

Today, we had a fantastic chicken bar-b-que lunch with Zion and then drove home. It took 7 hours this time. We made a few more stops on the way. The lunch (food) was great and I had some wonderful conversations. I look forward to seeing you this weekend - wether it is while we are unpacking or at church or at the first youth group meeting.

I look forward to meeting individuals the first week.

Hi Jeff,

I look forward to officially meeting you this Sunday as I was the lady sitting beside you whose granddaughter joined me in the middle of the service.

Welcome to Zion...Youth and Family is very important to me my family. I look forward to helping you in any way I can.

My son-in-law was on the search committee for your position. He is Jason Karger.

See you soon,
Becky T.

Thanks you so much. I look forward to being at Zion and getting to know you and your family.

I'm glad you are going to a church that really seems to put hands and feet to loving and caring for others. Granted, I am sort of holding my breath to see that this is really real, and will genuinely be good for you and Stacey. But something tells me it is. I sure hope so. My heart doesn't really think it can break much more.

I have never written a comment but I did this morning and it is under June 13 or 14 comments. Rather than me typing it again, please go to that day and read what I have written regarding making donations through your new church and the affect it will have on your taxes.

Thanks for the comments. I have contacted H&R ( I have used them numerous times ) and they were out of the office today.

I will be in touch with them tomorrow afternoon and make a post regarding your comment - late tomorrow night or Thursday morning.


I have FULL confidence that Zion is going to be a great place for me and our family and we will be cared for and loved on.

What is this about an email ?? Do you know that I never even seen the first one ??

When you post the information, give me your new church's address and make sure they can accept donations through the church but earmarked for your family.

I will get the information tomorrow and I will ask the church about accepting donations and what their policies are in these manners.

I'm really considering going to Ichthus next year since my job won't let me away for Creation...I may be asking you for some details if I'm able to swing it come next spring.
