[ Our invitations are back from the printers - I will post them soon. We are very happy with them and are planning to start mailing them out (envelopes, stamps, labels, etc.) as soon as possible. If you don't get one in the mail we will either give you one in person or we may have forgotten about it. In that case please let me know as these things happen, we are human after all. Hopefully no hard feelings.

I have been working on the GroundWork website for a few hours now and we have things up and running. In the future we will have more content and quite possibly a different design. We will see how things go. It kind of fits with the "Welcome to the Island" motif of up and coming announcement chime... you'll find out what I mean soon enough.

I guess I should update my home page soon to. Wow, things do get away from me now don't they? ]

[ We should be able to get our photos taken tonight for our invitations. I will post the pictures of both invitations in the near future: ceremony and reception.

We are finally rolling with a website for young adults. We have called it GroundWork but for now it points to Jeremy's blog as we haven't got the ball rolling on the design or content part of the site yet... and yet some people think that is the only part of having a web site.

I also had a very encouraging and very epic conversation with David today over lunch. We dialogued on everything from worship to marriage, dreams to church leadership. I left very blessed and praising Jesus... that is Christian community. ]

[ The weekend was good in hindsight, but definitely had it's share of difficult decisions. We are through the worst of it now, praise the Lord, but there will always be hardships in our midst. That is life.

We have decided on a church and are still in the process of invitations, booking and planning. We were able to put together a makeshift budget on the weekend as well that will hopefully serve as a benchmark for our upcoming purchases... although neither of us know what to really expect.

I may also be DJing at Convergence this week... we'll see what comes of that.

God is good. If we cease to believe that it is inevitable that everything else will come crashing down. ]

[ We finally bought a colour printer at work. Here's to easier, more efficient marketing campaigns and less money spent at the printers.

James Almeida is designing Jen and my invitations for our ceremony and reception. Really looking forward to having them finished and sent out.

We had our first young adults gathering of the year last night at Classic Rhythm. It went very well. We had a lot of new faces out and rather than doing dishes - as I have for the past few weeks - I held some good dialogues with people. We are still in the process of building our leadership team but I think things will begin to pick up speed soon. I have a... feeling.

"Jesus, thank you for my gurl Jennifer and the friends that have stuck by me through my life up to this point. The people that have helped me through past relationships and heartbreaks, the people I have built and created with, the people I have walked with. Help my new relationship to be a cornerstone in other's lives for healing, reconciliation and peace. Amen." ]

[ Hmm... I don't even really know where to start. So I'll hit you with the big news up front and take it from there.

I'm getting married.

Where to from there?

Seriously though, I am so excited. I mentioned the gurl in my last post: Jennifer Krobath. We have been together since August 4 and things are swell... I guess so, yeah?

Young adults is building momentum. We are growing and laying the ground work. Jesus, Direction, Justice. Flyte is also building momentum - hopefully I can bring some focus.

I will try and post more often now that I broke the barrier of the non-posting wall. Here's to us! ]
