A "Baby-Boomer" pastor wakes up to the fact that he's living in a very "Post-Modern" world.

Getting "back in the saddle again!"
I'm back in the saddle again Out where a friend is a friend Where the longhorn cattle feed On the lowly Jimson weed Back in the saddle again!
Well, it certainly feels like I'm back in the saddle again when it comes to making music.
I've extended my services to a retirement home in Keene, TX where a member of our church resides. I hope to be scheduled there in September.
I'm heading over to the Crowley Nursing Home as soon as I finish this blog entry to visit with the Activities Director about singing there.
I'm playing guitar and singing with our Praise Band tomorrow night (8/21) as we host the Local "Walk to Emmaus" Reunion group gathering.
And, I was just asked to travel to Waco on October 3 to sing for a United Methodist Women's gathering. I'm checking out the details to determine if I will be able to accept.
Yesterday evening I sang in the hallways of our church as parents and children attended our Crowley United Methodist PreSchool. I've sang several times for our United Methodist Men's gatherings, and I'm playing regularly with our 9:00 am service Praise Band, until I can recruit a layperson who is a better guitarist than I am.
And . . . I've been mostly playing my Guild 12-string. It's been a while. It's the guitar I;ve been reaching for lately, esepcially if I am playing and singing solo. I rotate my guitars around a lot. Right now it's the season for the 12-string.
It is good to be back in the saddle again after my move and transition to FUMC in Crowley. Let;s make a joyful noise!
God's grace, and making a joyful noise . . . still amazes me! ><>
