We left the DC area three years ago this next week
to church plant in Palo Alto, CA.
For 18 months, Scott worked on staff at
National Community Church, a church that meets
in a movie theater in Union Station in downtown DC.
And for the first time in our lives, we were on staff with
people our age....and younger.
When we youth pastored, we were always the "young hip couple".
Or at least we hoped we were hip...we were definitely young.
I'm thinking we were the old married couple with kids in DC because
all of the sudden, we were at a church
that was 80% 20-30 year old singles.
We wore jeans to church and took our coffee into service.
We learned about Jesus and felt his presence.
We made friends with people who will be our friends for life.
And we had some fun. Alot of fun.
We laughed every chance we got.
One of the things, I miss about NCC is the trailers
we would watch about upcoming sermon series and events.
This week, Scott showed me the trailer for the upcoming variety show.
I wept a little, with joy, to see the pastoral staff being so goofy.
They like to take Jesus seriously. And themselves? Not so much.
I love that.
