I finally got a copy of "The Celtic Way of Evangelism", which I've been wanting to read for a long time. I bought it Monday and am already about halfway through it. I need to slow down and savor it a little more. There's so much substance in there that I know I'm gonna need to read it more than once to get everything out of it.
Speaking of getting substance out of something, I heard about a new website the other day on the radio, PowerPotentials, which gives better ways to say things to "make friends and influence people." To give you a taste of this site, here is the "Power Quote of the Week":
We had our monthly potluck at VBCC last night; Kathy showed up with her adorable daughter, Joy, and brought fried chicken--we told her she could stay. :) In fact, everyone who brought a main dish brought something with chicken in it--we got a chuckle out of that because last time, everyone ended up bringing beef dishes. I brought the infamous blackberry cobbler (which I privately renamed "blackberry soup") and macaroni and cheese made with rotini (the rotini holds more cheese sauce in each bite--very efficient). We missed Matt; he had to be out of town or something. Next week we're supposed to have a little send-off for Robert and Molly. I am not really looking forward to this, even though I love just about any excuse for a party, because I know how much I am going to miss them. They will still be able to blog on The Vine, though, so I hope we'll hear from them often through that medium.
My friend Lorraine is graduating with a Master's Degree even as I write--Congratulations, Lorraine!! I was kinda bummed that I didn't get to go to the ceremony, but it started before I got off work. I'll get to celebrate with her and hers on Saturday, though. Her mom is in from Ireland, and I hope to be able to see her before she goes back home. Just talking to her makes me want to pack everything up and stow away in her baggage..... :)
Hi, I'm Debi. Once in a while I have a thought and I like to write it down before it goes away. This is where I write it.
