I'm sitting on the aisle in row four @ IHOP, holding six seats for Kels and I, Rusty & Jen and Rusty's parents. The meeting starts in an hour or so but seats go fast.
It's our all-group gathering tonight - all the house congregations and the rest of the 'HOP community. The HOPper will be full tonight - 800 or so. I'm scheduled to give a ten minute blurb on outreach in general and servanthood in particular. The Unknown is that I'm going to challenge their ready, fire, aim committment by asking for fifteen volunteers to go clean public restrooms immediately after the service. :-) Let's put our toilet brush where out mouth is. Uh. I gotta rethink that part.
