Pipe Cleaner Dance

Ok, this is my new favorite time waster.

Pipe Cleaner Dance

Thanks to Arloa Sutter for sending me that direction. Her blog is also good for really interesting insights on how to actually love the people around us, including the poor and gross. I'm really impressed by it.

Arloa came to my church on Sunday to visit and I was a total insensitive boob when she said she was looking for a new church. I told her we would love to have her because her community development experience would be really appreciated.

Luckily, I got to rectify the situation later by apologizing and telling her that we would love to have her join us because her humanity is valuable to us.

Way to make someone feel welcome, Rebecca. Jesus loves us no matter who we are or what we do for a living. The church and the people in it should, too. Plus, I realized that if someone had said that to me, I would have been super-pissed.

Do unto others. Yeah, right. Sorry, Jesus.

Rebecca, you are no insensitive boob!! I felt very welcomed by you. It was great to see a friendly face. Thanks for introducing me to Pastor Dan and it was a trip to meet Julie since we had lunch planned for Wednesday and I had never met her. God is amazing and so are you!! No more self-deprecation regarding me, PLEASE!!

If you liked the Pipecleaner dance you'll love the treadmill dancers I posted on my blog today!!

Love your blog!

Thanks, Arloa. Self-flagellation ceasing. See everyone, I told you she was cool!

Dad, you should go check out the treadmill dancers. It will make you say, "Jeesh!"
