As you churchgoers know, sometimes sermons aren’t the most gripping. In order to make myself listen, I bring a notebook and pen and try to take notes, even though there’s a vanishingly small chance I’ll ever look back at those notes. But sometimes sermons are so not-gripping that I end up flipping to the back of the notebook and doodling while listening. I’m almost done with the current notebook, and I thought I’d scan and save my doodles, since I particularly like some of them.
And our hope for you is firm, because we know that just as you share in our sufferings, so also you share in our comfort.
2 Corinthians 1:7
I’m still alive! The week in Spokane was fun, the drive back wasn’t awful, and I spent the weekend recuperating. Monday and Tuesday this week at work we’re having a “Staff Revolution.” Everybody has felt for a while that the Bike Alliance has been stagnating and things need to change. This is where we build the groundwork for that change. We created a draft vision and a set of goals that really inspire and excite me — something I’ve not felt here before. By the end of the meeting yesterday, most of the other staff felt the same way. With a vision and goals like that, I could see staying with the Bike Alliance for a long time.
