Manager’s Memo 7-24-20
My wife Wanda has been at her mom’s house for the past couple of weeks. When your mom is 90, you spend as much time as you can with them. While I’m glad she got to go, it means I got to do her chores as well while she was gone. Chief among them, making sure the 1,785 potted plants in the back yard received enough water. Okay, maybe not that many, but it sure feels like it on a hot July afternoon.
Don’t tell her, but I may have missed a watering day last week. I looked out the kitchen window, and I noticed considerable droopage, especially the elephant ear plants. So, it was “hose to the rescue,” starting with the elephant ears. Before I finished the back yard, the elephant ears had gone from almost touching the ground to standing taller than the delinquent holder of the hose.
Recent research from Barna indicates more than one-third of at least monthly church attendees before COVID’s onset in March have not participated in any church-related activity since the world changed this Spring. Are you feeling thirsty? Are you drooping under the strain of life? Come to the source of living waters for your refreshing. John says that if you believe, rivers of living water will flow from you to the thirsty souls around you.
For 88.3 The Journey, I’m General Manager Mike Agee.
