25...March Madness

Well, I turned 25 last Friday. I had a great day skiing with Holly's family up in Breckenridge. You can't beat having your birthday on Spring Break every year. I've been skiing on my birthday at least 6 or 7 times. We had a great time.

And on another note: 25 means that I'm able to be on the insurance of the church vans now. The office made sure to rib me about this. There aren't too many churches who hire preachers who aren't even allowed to take the youth group to any events in their vans. But as of Friday, I'm not the preacher boy, I'm the young preacher. Getting old doesn't feel so good!

March and April are also two of my favorite months for sports. The Masters is coming up in a few weeks, which is perhaps my favorite sporting event of the year. But this weekend is the opening weekend of the College Basketball Tournament. You can't beat opening weekend of the tourney. 48 games in 4 days. My couch and I are about to become very good friends again! Make sure and fill out your bracket.

Here are my picks:

Final Four - Louisville, Memphis, Villanova, Oklahoma

Championship - Louisville over Villanova

Let me know your picks!

Collin,

Just found your blog. I didn't know who was preaching at Littleton now. I preach in Ulysses, KS and am friends with your former minister.

Did you graduate from ACU? I'm looking there to possibly start a D.Min. in Jan 2010. Possibly.

God bless your work, the birth of your child, and the partnership in ministry with your wife.

My wife and I had our 27th anniversary dinner tonight. One thing we talk about on such occassions is our co-ministry together - the same length of time as our marriage. It is a great blessing to have a wife with you in ministry.

Brother, I have a blog with articles on marriage and family I'd like to invite you to look at:

Please let me know what you think.

Warren,

Thanks for stopping by. I did graduate from ACU. I completed my undergrad and graduate degrees there. We are so blessed to be at Littleton. It is a wonderful church. I'll be sure to check out your blog and I'll look forward to meeting you.

You have to be over 30 like me to be a young preacher. Sorry Colin, you are still the boy preacher. Have a great day my friend. I am going to Tulsa, are you.
