A few men at our Men’s Retreat in the “Whar’s the bar?” skit. A fine tradition of humiliating the newcomers in Christian love.  
A family working on their craft at our Christmas Craft Night in early December.  
Tim the Tool Man Taylor (aka Mark Roberts) and Al Borland (aka Tim Avazian, one of my associate pastors), all dressed up for our annual VBS skit. That’s a fine head of hair I have, don’t you think. In truth, a member of our church who knew me well say me and thought to himself: “I never knew Mark had a brother. His brother has a terrible haircut!”  
A couple of church members dressed up for our annual Harvest Festival in October.  
My daughter (left) and her friend at camp. Yes, the friend is proudly displaying her broken arm.  
One of my favorite moments in the year. On Thanksgiving Eve we had a worship service, in which people were free to share with the congregation that for which they were thankful. Every year, a time of joy, laughter, tears, and lots of gratitude.  
Another of my happiest moments: the lighting of the Christ candle of the Advent wreath on Christmas Eve. We had families (and sometimes groups of friends) light the candles, with readings from Scripture and prayers. Always a sweet time.
