Well, Tim, We Can See That You're a Busy Man

Dawn and I are actually going to get away for our anniversary this weekend. We'll go to Louisville and see her mom and sisters, but we'll manage, I'm pretty sure, to make time for us. Hm, should I bring my grading or not...?

The process for which this blog is named has been going well without any calling any attention to the fact. So I did, this past weekend, at LGBC's community dinner. It's time to make official--i.e., artificially overt--what the Spirit is, I think, making unofficial--i.e., real, whether overt or not--namely, that the Body of Christ is functioning--in a lumpy, bumpy way, to be sure, but that's how we do it--in LGBC well enough that I am receding from my excess importance to being a (valued, but finite) member and contributor and participant in the community. That's very cool. How often do you get to have a vision for something, then get to actually try to start one, and then, way past what you did to catalyze it, the thing takes off with a life of its own, and actually holds to much of the vision? Um, well, Mark, most people probably never get to carry that off, except in raising their kids maybe. So we're very humbled and grateful that it's happening here and now. That's cool.

Got to go. Talk more soon.

Just wanted to leave a quick ReMark:

Does this mean you get to start a new LGBC? Maybe we could call it LABC?

Hey. Church will be based at our house, but hopefully will travel as people get the vision for how this is A. doable as is, but elsewhere, and B. doable differently that's still good.

We could, and might yet, start another Jesus-oriented spiritual community. But I think we need to move to different things right now: Dawn to some kind of direct service to those in need, me to writing / speaking / teaching / training etc.
