8:15am – set up older son with iPad and breakfast sandwich; he watches a show and eats while I add powerpoint to the worship computer (secretary was on vacation this week and this hadn’t gotten done yet)
8:30am – add video to powerpoint (yesterday pastor asked if there was an easy way to add a list of statements people had written the previous week to a powerpoint; inserted list into iMovie as rolling credits…done)
8:31am – check on older son…still eating and still watching.
8:40am – set up projector and speakers for T3 class (T3 stands for Tough Topics for Teens and we tackle difficult issues for teens. Last month was bullying. Today is Depression/Suicide. Maybe we’ll tackle sex next time…we’ll see.
9:00am – powerpoint for worship – set. T3 presentation – set. What to do now?
9:01am – check on son…he’s not in the room. Searching for him.
9:03am – still searching for son; first bit of panic sets in.
9:04am – I hear his voice…he sounds otay. Found him: he’s helping the Children’s Director set up Sunday School. Sigh of relief.
9:06am – voicemail from pastor saying that the worship computer was displaying an error
9:07am – find pastor…he restarted computer and everything is fine
10:00am – worship starts…video looks good (visit Facebook.com/npcdb to see video)
10:03am – pastor says something about using the youth room…he couldn’t have meant today because we have a class in there…he must mean next week
10:20am – notice that every youth in the youth section is looking down at a personal screen (some playing mine craft, one exploring instagram, can see what that one is doing)
11:10am – worship is over, passing the peace of Christ by saying, “Pizza Crust be with you.”
11:25am – pastor shows up to youth room for new member gathering…he did mean to use it today. Thankfully 9 youth are there for my T3 class, new member gathering is relocated (we didn’t have a staff meeting this week, but we could have solved this double booking ahead of time)
12:07pm – youth talks about giving big toe to another youth
12:08pm – comment that the big toe comment was blog worthy and introduce this blog to the youth
12:40pm – T3 class is done, invite youth to play games…I think it was a good introduction to depression and suicide, hope they did too

7:30pm – after an afternoon of hanging with the wife and littlest one, time to head home.

9:00pm – begin transferring Bronco game from Tivo to computer for later viewing.
9:30pm – while waiting for transfer and conversion, write up MMQB, so today MMQB is finished before the day is over…until next time…
