I'm pretty happy. The new asst pastor who just graduated form seminary had a meeting at my home with me this Monday, and we spoke about Sunday School moving forward and the health of it over the past 2 years. Really encouraged by what he had to say, and his thoughts on the "health" of the church since the fire. Moving forward we want to continue the Christian classics as a staple in the education, and he is really focused on reaching others in the community not just for "pastoral" reasons but also to make a real difference in people's lives. Hopefully the Community Kitchen I worked at 2 weeks ago will be involved, and maybe hopefully the medical ministry that we used to have at the church where people who couldn't afford to go to a Dr could come and get free care will revive once we get our building rebuilt.

I'd love to hear more about the makeup (size, shape, function, form, business practices, etc) of your church. I am kind of spending a lot of my attention studying the issues of "church" and any perspective you could add would be appreciated.
