Bulletin: Musicians Needed – Church Band in Twin Cities Metro Area

Good morning world! Just a quick note — we (my church) are in need of musicians/a band in the Twin Cities metro area. Know of anyone interested in playing regularly?  Needs include guitar players, bass players, vocalists, keyboard plays – we have one – and drummers. If you know of anyone who would be interested in playing, please connect them with me or send them to this link for my church for my information. We are great group of people and have awesome community, we’re just missing musicially inclined artists.

We are also looking for people who want to serve in our children’s ministry, preferably those with some experience. Background checks will also be completed prior to putting them in the rotation for our children’s ministry.

With much gratitude,
Me

for a most beloved sister on her wedding day

I wrote this for my sister a little over 17 months ago. A great time…many memories…emotional overload, but it’s all good.

Let’s face it. Writing any speech is hard. But, writing one for your sister’s big day? Definitely.

I’d been working on the thing for weeks. I’d start it, write a line (okay, maybe two), and end up wadding up the yellow legal paper because I didn’t like the way it flowed and toss it towards the non-existent trash can in my living room. Ever the perfectionist, not only was I making a mess in my apartment (which, secretly, drives me nuts), I was hitting road block after road block. This speech had to be the best thing since sliced bread. Flawless. Epic, really.

The idealist in me demanded romance and perfection, with enough humor to captivate the audience (her guests) and keep the new husband and wife from falling asleep at the head table. I didn’t want something generic, something cut, pasted and dried from someone else’s idea. I wanted…

the beauty of baptism

One year ago this week… Oh, how my life has changed.

water-baptism

John answered them all, “I baptize you with water, but One is coming who is more powerful than I. I am not worthy to untie the strap of His sandals. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.” Luke 3.16

I’m getting baptized. On Sunday.

I tell friends, family and acquaintances about it and I get the strangest looks and asked why? I was baptized as a baby…

but…

That’s just it. I was a baby. It was more of a dedication/promise for my parents; that they would raise me in obedience to God, teaching me His ways. I don’t remember it.

Confirmation came when I was in high school. I went through the class, on my own, just like every other high school sophomore before me (16 was the average age of those who had gone through confirmation at the church I grew up in), but…

Party Season is Here!

Winter still has its clutches on Minnesota…but spring is hanging on and crawling ever closer (if the temps this weekend were any indication). That being said, it’s that time of year…

I’m hosting a spring Tastefully Simple tasting party later this month…both virtual and in person. Check out the link below and shop around. Best of all, these food options (seasonings, desserts, etc.) are MSG free and they have a gluten-free line available (with more options than last season!)

Enjoy!
