The other night our church, Monumental United Methodist, had a church night at Harbor Park for a Norfolk Tides game. It was a great night for baseball. A slight, occasional breeze off of the river. The storm clouds stayed away. At least until the seventh inning, with a gentle rain began to fall.
The other day we drove down to Duck, North Carolina along the Outer Banks to visit with some friends who were vacationing there. We were reminded of how close we are to the Outer Banks and that we should take more advantage of it being so close. We had a fun day.
The other night the Virginia Zoological Park in Norfolk expended the hours for members. It was a great opportunity to see the zoo’s residents during a cooler part of the day.
Friday afternoon we had some family time at the Virginia Zoological Park in Norfolk. We first explored the zoo a few summers ago when we were in the area for a family vacation. Once we moved here, we knew we had to get a membership. Now, it is one of our favorite places in town.
the light pours into the dark room.
it illuminates only a small space.
but it is enough to cast away the darkness.
The WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge theme this week is descent.
Holy Communion – Cabin on the James River
A recent WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge theme was “signs.” I snapped this picture during our staff retreat back in September. One of our church members let us use their cabin along the James River outside of Lynchburg. It is not a sign in the traditional sense, but theologically it is one of our most important signs. The bread and the cup are signs of the body and blood of Christ. They become signs to the amazing grace extended to all of us.
World War II Memorial – Washington, D. C.
WordPress’ Weekly Photo Challenge theme was “nighttime” this week. I snapped this picture this past spring when Megan and I were in D. C. We wanted to go by the WWII memorial, but the only time we had was in the late evening. We walked from where we had dinner, and by the time we got to the memorial, it had turned dark. Once we got there, I realized I had left my camera where we were staying. I snapped this with my iPhone, with the Lincoln Memorial in the distance.
A photo snapped by Linwood Campbell during worship last week. This is our Children’s Time, where I sit just about every week with our children in worship and talk about the scriptures. In this picture, we are talking about Peter walking on the water . . . . and Spider-Man. You never know what’s going to come up in a children’s time.
