What I’m reading:

When Did You Last Play?

When did you last play? This was my writing reflection question for the day. It took me a while to answer the question, until I remembered this photo.

Two years ago, my daughter and I loaded the car and drove from Detroit to New York City. She had wanted to see a play on Broadway for years, and her birthday seemed like a good idea.

We navigated through toll booths and pit stops and crossed several bridges before we found Broadway. It’s a street. In New York City. I had no idea. LOL. My daughter belly laughed and snorted at me. I’m such a dork.

For some reason, I pictured a giant theater with individual rooms like in a movie theater. 🎬 No hable Español.

We strolled through Central Park and found the ferris wheel. We slipped into a Cafe for lunch. And we way over paid for an I ❤ NYC TSHIRT. Then we went to a play on Broadway, the street.

It’s the last time I played, and I miss it.

E79 Pastor Aeysha Young on the Podcast

Please welcome my new friend, Pastor Aeysha Young to the podcast! She is a pastor at Kentwood Community Church in Grand Rapids, Michigan. We talk about small groups and creating community. She also shares about being a single pastor during a pandemic. It’s a fun episode, but we had a little Zoom trouble. You know how that goes! It will still bless you.
