Sunday Night (Err…Monday Morning?) Mind Dump

Tomorrow, Rachel and I leave town without the kids to this place:

That would be Hume Lake.
I picked the one with snow in the pic, cause, well, I read it could snow in the area this week.

Our network, Converge PacWest saves a couple spots for church planters at the pastors retreat there every year.
Never been to Hume Lake.  Supposed to be a mecca of Christian retreat/camp places so I hear.
I’m just looking forward to getting away with my wife for a few days.

As soon as I get back I head for 3 more days of retreating at the Santa Cruz All County Men’s Retreat.
I get to lead worship there and it should be a blast.

I haven’t been blogging lately, and it isn’t for lack of things in my head to blog about.
So I’m hoping after a week of being pretty much unplugged, I’ll get back to making some time to post.
There’s plenty to post about:

  • Our Missio Dei Labor Day BBQ (Maybe too late for that?)
  • Thoughts on being “100% sure” of our calling to plant in Santa Cruz
  • Recap of our church riding in and being a sponsor of the Surf City AIDS Ride
  • One of the most amazing nights of worship leading with my former community of faith and family
  • Recap of San Francisco Triathlon (now that was a loooong time ago)

Other random thoughts that probably won’t get posted about beyond this:

  • Charlie & Bridget had a baby! (Good friends. Was gonna post pics but missed the window of opportunity.  Sorry guys.)
  • My Chargers provide a roller coaster of emotions.
  • My Fantasy Football team sucks.  0-4/  But it’s all good.  Who wants to be the ’72 Dolphins when you can be the ’68 Bucs?
  • Brought home some stuff from my mom’s house: a piano, a big TV, the nicest car I’ll ever own, some paintings, and half a freaking garage full of Hockey Cards.
  • Finally bit the bullet and got Dish Network.  First time with cable in 3 1/2 years.
  • Caleb turned 4.  And he likes to tell everyone.
  • Oh, and if I didn’t share yet, I’m working part-time leading worship on an interim basis in San Jose.  That one actually probably will get more post time.

But Monday morning I turn off the laptop, and intend to leave it off til Thursday afternoon.
I will probably be in a cold sweat by Monday afternoon, but hopefully by Thursday I’ll be done detoxing.
Catch ya in a week (I hope).

    Hey Bobby, so good to see you and Rachel this week. Sorry we didn’t get to hang more. I would have loved that but we’ll always have Paris =) and dinner with the recumbent bike guy.

    I have a good friend who is the Youth Ministries director up there…if you see Rich Baker, give him a big hello from me! Hume is BEAUTIFUL…all my high school/college camp memories- it’s good times.

    I have had many great experiences and memories at Hume Lake. I think I have been there about 8 times. It is a wonderful place to “be” at and think, pray, listen, learn. May you have a great time there!
