Well, we survived our outing last night. Once again, I brought home as many teens as I left with; I just hope it was the same ones. None of the parents have complained, so either I got it right, or the replacement was an improvement.

One the way back to the church, some of the girls were grilling me about the church's one-piece bathing suit rule. I really didn't want to get into it right then because a) I was driving and I don't like being in conversations when I'm hauling around other people's kids. And b) there were several Jr. High boys in the van and I didn't think it was a good idea to get into the "theology of the female breast" with them listening in. I told them to show up early for youth group tonight and we would have a private conversation. So, assuming they show up, I get to talk to 3 or 4 High School girls about why it's a bad idea to publicly display their breasts.

The things you get to do in ministry....

Anyway, that's all for now. I haven't had a chance to check my usual news sources, but I assume it's still "all John's, all the time." If I find something that may actually interest real people, I'll post it later.

My team won the duct tape engineering marvel competition! YEAH! It was still floating when we rounded up the kids and senior to leave that night. Thanks so much to my other teammates -- especially the Cedarville College Puppet kids and my father-in-law.
