A City Church Event
Flipping through the channels last night, the local Christian station had two gentlemen talking about a community-wide interchurch event next weekend. Given my interest in the citywide church, my curiosity was naturally piqued.

Pastor Shane Warren of First Assembly West Monroe was talking with Dr Michael Walker, local dentist and one of the organizers of the event, discussing the details and strategic importance of this conference and community prayer service. The theme is "What Matters Now," and since it's Super Bowl weekend, the event is called "Super Soul Weekend"...yeah, not its best selling point in my opinion, but nonetheless. Sponsored by Community Prayer Partners, the conference is free and open to the public with no registration required.

On Friday, Feb 1 from 7-9pm and Saturday, Feb 2 from 9am-12pm, Steve & Debbie Wilson of Marriage Matters Now will be speaking at Parkview Baptist Church, with worship lead by songwriter, recording artist and First West contemporary worship pastor, Jonathan Wiggins.

On Sunday, Feb 3 from 2-3:30pm, the community prayer service will be held at the Monroe Civic Center auditorium. Author and evangelist Tommy Tenney will speak for 20-30 minutes, with the rest of the time devoted to prayer along the theme of "What Matters Now."

For more information, contact:
- Dr Michael Walker (dentistsb@gmail.com)
- Pastor Larry Stafford (First United Methodist Church)
- Pastor Mark Foster (The Pentecostals of the Twin Cities)
- Pastor Bob Clanton (Covenant Church)
- Pastor Whit Bass (Prayer, Urban & Ministry Teams, First West)

New Year's
Watching Scotch mist off & on today ("a film with Radiohead in it / made for New Year's Eve, 2007"; hat tip to Barb & her Facebook note). Also picked up some Hennessy and finally opened last night's champagne.

Last night. Yeah. Our boys spent the night with Hollie's kind parents so we could go to the big New Year's Eve party for the first time in a few years, but when we got there, Ellie decided to fuss rather than sleep, so we eventually left a little before eleven. Tried to find some food for Hollie but everywhere was closed or closing. In bed by 11:30, disappointed and very sober, fell asleep to the sound of fireworks and Kathy Griffin on Bravo.

Today's been pretty good by contrast. Lunch at Applebee's with Hollie & Ellie. Boys happy to see us. About to watch The Simpson's Movie. Enjoying the occasional sip of cognac, bubbly, and Scotch mist ("with Radiohead in it"...I love that).
