It's an Orangy Sky *

Today at first service, Tom Nazarenus gave the message, because he is in town to give the Baccalaureate address for the CVA graduation ceremonies. The message was titled 1,2,3,4 . . . because that is sometimes how many times it takes us to answer God's call. He provided examples of different people in the Bible who were called by God: Peter, Saul, Moses, Noah, and Samuel (It was the fourth time that God called Samuel that he responded.). Tom then mentioned that while at the academy kids would tell him that they felt called by God, but that they didn't know to what. Tom made the point that God calls us to follow Him--everything else will work itself out. [For those who know/care about Tom and his wife Lisa, they are moving soon to TN where she will be a licensed practitioner nurse in her father's practice.]

Then Pastor Keith Jacobson got up and said that the rumours of his departure were true. He and his family will be taking the pastorate in the Carmichael church in Sacramento, CA, a position he had rejected twice before. In January, his wife said that if No. Cal. asked again they should take a look because her mother is getting older and it would be good to be closer to her. In February, that third call came. Also in consideration of family, the Jacobson's son Zach said that he would move back home if they went to Sacramento. There you have it.

Last night I went to a concert by the LoCash Cowboys. They were very entertaining and diverse in their efforts. They covered Violent Femmes, Sublime, Prince, Lipps Co., Kool and the Gang, Def Leppard, Michael Jackson, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Alabama, Charlie Daniels Band, The Beastie Boys, Snoop Dogg, Steve Miller Band, and others I'm forgetting. Their own songs were also entertaining.

* Lyric from a Cars song, Bye Bye Love, that I could never decipher before. Another nice line is "with your eyes of porcelain and blue."

Yes, I debated going to the farmer's market before church, but my body wasn't letting me. I did have plenty of pseudo-dream in which I explained myself to you and others though.

I love the Cars. Also, do they have any idea who will pastor CVC now? I wonder if it will be another protracted search.

Well, I'm sure there is much rumour and speculation, and it will also be another protracted search, but the circumstances of some of their favorites from last time have changed, so they might have a starting point (example: Andy McDonald of Florida Hospital, his children are now at Southern and not in academy anymore.)

But really, Scott would be the one to ask because he was on the last search committee if memory serves me correctly.
