Last week was full of birthdays and brew! As you know, Monday was Rick’s birthday, it was great to start out the month and the week celebrating our Pastor. I am so very thankful for his life, leadership, and liturgy! Thank you to everyone who shared in celebrating Rick’s birthday. The second half of the week was marked by Homebrewed Christianity podcasts. Dan Cudworth, Rick, and I traveled up to Berkeley for a live podcast recording on Thursday night. The next night we hosted our own gathering here in the Youth Room. Chip Clark and Greg Griffey joined the hilarity, along with community members and podcast listeners alike. It was another great week of networking and nurturing relationships! I’m now picking up our Lenten book, Learning to Walk in the Dark, hopefully you’ll join us in the reading journey.
