Sometime you just have to sit with a cup of coffee an catch up.

Go grab your coffee.
Both Mother's Day and Father's Day were great gatherings this year. These two weekends have become very meaningful weekends at The Fields. We intentionally invest, inspire, and incorporate family activity in these weekends. Special thanks to Ashley West who spoke on Mother's Day, and a HUGE thanks to all those who worked hard to make Father's Day a great day.
Our graduating high school seniors had a great connecting time via a 2-day retreat that led them to a high-ropes course, camping, biking along a river (and getting scared in the middle of the night by an evil water fountain.)
Ten people served in San Jeronimo, Honduras las week as part of our 1814 Project. We are partnering with a great little community and church to help make transformational impact in people's lives.
Dakota and Riley have been busy with t-ball and baseball this summer. Both are doing great. Dakota is at an interesting age where he can play both t-ball and machine pitch. So, he's a stud on the t-ball field and a rookie in machine pitch. It's been a really fin summer of baseball. I've help out coaching on both teams. (Don't let anyone know I never made it past jaycee league as a kid.)
Cooper is talking a lot. And we actually are starting to understand him. He loves to swim and watch the boys play baseball.
Since our family vacation was in April, Joy and I are feeling a weird "no summer vacation" emptiness. We may try to get away for a few days in July as a family.
I'm in my sixth and final month of an online coaching community for pastor's leading their church through transition and change. It's been a very positive experience. And a great time to meet and connect with other pastors.
Thanks for letting me catch up after the kick-off of a busy summer.
Drop me a note and let me know how you're doing.
Better yet, let's have a real cup of coffee someday.
