I know it’s an old joke, but we had our first real fight at church tonight. It has come close more than once. A couple of weeks ago I had to break something up before it happened. Tonight I was brought in after the damage was done. One of my adult leaders was outside when it happened and got it broken up pretty quickly but it really ticked me off. I stayed calm with the boys, but I feel like it was the steely calm that I am prone to get which people who know me will identify as extreme anger.
I talked with both mothers and with the students involved and those that were around. I think it will be fine but the boys aren’t allowed back for two weeks. I hate doing that though because they both need what we were talking about.
We started a series called “Am I Happy?” It’s from Blueflshtv and is about where we go for happiness and such. There was a 15 minute clip that showed real people talking about how they dealt with the pursuit of happiness and what it did to their lives. This was interspersed with Sean McDowell talking about what was said and what God has to say on happiness.
I’m really excited about the series as a whole. We will conclude the series with a one out on cutting.
