3 Minute Mind Dump

Literally, I have like 3 minutes to post this. So no edits.  Just off the top. Here we go. Have 3 minutes cause we’re about to head out for the Converge Church Planters assessment center.  3 days of intensity.  Psychologists, pastors, assessors, coaches, all inspecting us to say whether not they think we’re capable.  Errr…called?  […]

Worlds Apart

For 7 or 8 months now, our life group has been heading out to San Lorenzo park about once a month for a barbeque. We show up with the BBQ, 2 big jugs of water and lemonade, and about 50 burgers and 50 dogs. Then we share the food with whoever’s around and just get […]

Sayonara ’09 – Bring it on ’10!

For those who didn’t get one, or if it got lost in the mail (as I’m sure yours did), I figured I’d go ahead and post our Christmas letter as a way of quickly looking back on 2009… Another year has passed and it’s time for the third annual Marchessault family Christmas letter.  We recognize […]

Christmas Tree Time Lapse

We head out this past Monday to cut down our Christmas tree.  Had a blast with the fam.  Got the tree home, and thought I’d share our decorating festivities with you. So with no further ado, our tree from start to finish…in 60 seconds. I do have to extend a quick apology to my German […]

The Lost Art Of Storytelling

Last night I watched The Chronicles Of Narnia: Prince Caspian for the first time. Not sure why it took me SO long to get around to that one.  Such a good movie. I was so captured by the story and some of the simple yet profound writing. It made me wonder… who/where are our modern […]

Reflections On The Real Presence With Albert Edward Day

“But God is present in reality no matter what unreality our practices and our ponderings imply.  He is forever trying to establish communication; forever aware of the wrong directions we are taking and wishing to warn us; forever offering solutions for the problems that baffle us; forever standing at the door of our loneliness, eager […]
