In all of my excitement about the comedian earlier I forgot to talk about our church picnic. Last night we rented a pavilion at Lake Point State Park and had a church picnic and short worship service. We set up the sound system and I took my guitar out there and led some worship songs. It was sooooooooo cool. As I was playing with the sun on my neck and the wind in my face and the sounds of “outside” going on around me I started thinking, “This is what I learned to play guitar for, times like this…”
and then I messed up and totally played the wrong chord and almost sang the wrong words, because while when I am preaching I can sometimes think about other things and about what I am going to say next, I’m still not comfortable enough with the guitar to think of anything but what I am playing.
