Todays Meeting

Posted in Monthly Meetings tagged , , at 3:38 pm by Jeremy Blount

The Next meeting will be Thursday June 12th at 8:30 @ Norlo Park under the Pavilion.    RAIN OR SHINE.  Anyone willing to lead this time?

We had another great turn out today.  We covered the following announcements up front.

  • Vertical Festival is September 20th.  The guys at Vertical would love for us to be involved.
  • This Saturday Manito is hosting the Youth Night at the YMCA.  Ryan Payne Band will be there.  7:00-10:00.  Everything is free.
  • Penn National Golf Center came and shared with us their desire to partner with youth groups.   They want to organize a Church mini-golf league and also have our groups sign-up for mini golf nights.  The prices are great and worth us discussing.   What are your thoughts?
  • The YMCA will be hosting a Family Version of the Amazing Race on May 18th.  View the poster here.

Today we had a great time talking about our biggest failures.  We also share some of our personal struggles.  Many of us talked about time management and allowing ourselves to become to busy and therefore really tired.   The following type of thought was discussed.

Eugene Peterson observes in Christ Plays in Ten Thousand Places that we are called to live in the rhythm of the text. God set the rhythm as work, work, work—work, work, work—rest. As Peterson points out, we too often abuse the rhythm of time by procrastination or hurry. We are faced with the temptation to waste time or rush past time.

God calls us to work (x6) and rest. This was the rhythm he set in the beginning. We are called to walk to this rhythm, live to the rhythm, raise families within this rhythm. Wesley wrote in his commentary on Genesis 1, “And let our make and place, as men, mind us of our duty, as Christians, which is always to keep heaven in our eye, and the earth under our feet.
