Megan and I have been having church with some folks on the east side of town on Lime Street; a house church plant out of Weaverland Mennonite. How did we find them? Dawn (one of Megan's bride's maids and college/current friend) and Greg Yoder (newer but dear friend for me) are part of the church planting team that founded and lead the group and they, after telling us about it a few times and us going on and on about what we want to do church/community wise, they invited us to visit. Upon arriving that first week over two months ago we discovered that they would start reading CELEBRATION OF DISCIPLINE by Richard Foster together. That coupled with the feel of a functional group with an active purpose has us committed to stay at least through the book. Darin Horst, one of the other founders, and the Yoder's were over last week to pray with us about the vision Megan and I have to plant a house church and live in community. It was a great time of sharing of our visions and stories.

How did I forget to mention this? I suppose having written it in a number of emails or given it enthusiastic mention in conversation that I had documented it's existence here. Alas I had not.

Tonight we will start attending a summer small group from Millersville University Christian Fellowship of which Duane Metzler is the pastor. You may remember Duane as the pastor who did the vows/communion portion of our wedding ceremony. He asked us to a planning meeting for their summer groups and upon the group coming up with some ideas for topics I suggested a few books. In this group the goal is to talk about and through social/religious issues and Christian living and, of course, their interplay. So of course this ends up entailing and adjusting everything but this is a good theme to approach it from. As our guide we will be using Brian McLaren and Tony Campolo's ADVENTURES IN MISSING THE POINT which came out in paperback at the beginning of the year. I read most of it about a year and a half ago but am enjoying the refresher.

Please keep Megan and I in your prayers as we discern the timing and placing of our visions. Pray also that God refines and corrects our vision when needed.

This weekend I will be my first set with the James Chester Band. I will be playing bass with them at Calvary Church in Souderton, PA on Saturday night. I haven't had the chance to play with, my longtime friend and former bandmate (TLM), Adam Ryan (drums) since Jason and Krista Wendle's wedding a few years back. And finally Aaron Gotwalt and I will combine musical sounds. More as it happens.

Married life is still quite grand, don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

Working at Rhubarb's on Columbia Ave in Lancaster is very satisfying and I love my coworkers.

Megan and I have only watched a few movies over the past two monthes and I would recommend two to almost anyone: JUNE BUG and GOOD NIGHT AND GOOD LUCK . We also watched MATCH POINT late this past Saturday night. Certainly the best Woody Allen movie in years but honestly it didn't really seem like a Woody Allen movie at all. I thought it was very well done but certainly a chilling toward the end and a bit creepy. And long? Maybe, yes. Necessary to gain some sort of insight in life? Not likely. But Scarlett Johansson
IS amazing.

Johanna Espamer's album is really turning into something wonderful. Though in all honesty, the arrangments were wonderful almost from the first practice. You can't go wrong with those songs and voice like that together. Nathan Horst and Gary Shelton have done a great job producing.

Update complete for now.
