Potlucks Rule

UPDATE: Went well. Mark Taylor and i did the graphics for the potluck. He did his own photos with Delirious soundtrack. As for me, I didnt have any time so I just used video loops from Highway Video’s VIBE collection (Thanks Travis). Bill Slack, General Superintendent of the Baptist Churches of Scotland peached. Nice guy. He invited me down to Glasgow but i will see him at the BWA in Birmingham.

This morning we are hitting Stromness Baptist Church and will stay later for the POTLUCK. I am reheating a lamb curry and bringing a few of our pizzas. Polucks rule!!!!

  • potlucks are awesome. i mentioned the term one day in a 11th & 12th grader bible study and was surprised by the fact that they had never experienced a potluck before – we’re a baptist youth ministry how can that happen. so these 11th & 12th graders decided to start having potlucks through out the year. they love it and i have loved the fellowship with them.
