It's All Greek to Me

After a hectic, hot day out with the kiddos, I am busy preparing for our church service tomorrow. Jason and I are co-preaching--we've basically split the message in half. It's one of the things I really love about what we do, it's fun to work on something together. Well, it's fun NOW. After nearly ten years of marriage and ministry together, we've pretty much learned how to communicate well in a "work" setting, as opposed to a "marriage" setting, and how to navigate when those two merge. If you work at all with your spouse, that will hopefully make sense to you. (More on that dynamic another time!)

Right now, we're sitting at our laptops, trying to be all, like, insightful and stuff. It's just adorable. (I'd take a picture and post it, but I look a bit rough after aforementioned day out with the kiddos. And I'm wearing shorts that are not for public consumption.) We think of it as tag team preaching, but don't worry. It's not like tag team wrestling. Mostly cause this kind of get-up would not be flattering for either of us:

God forbid. (And I'm pretty sure He did.)

So, I am up to my ears tonight in commentaries, Greek Bible Dictionaries, and catchy illustrations. Oh--and my own brilliance. Nearly forgot that one!

Hope all is well where you are!


  1. Wish we could be there to hear it! And we need to have our "phone date" soon! Love you so very much!

  2. Amy!! I love your writing, I wish I could be as witty as you on paper (or computer), but alas mine is just so quick it is hard to capture. : P Kidding!! Love you guys and hope you are well. We miss you here and pretty soon you and Cheryl will have sons with matching names (at least the first name).

  3. Do you really think the tag team outfits would be such a bad idea?!

  4. I heard it and it was awesome!

  5. I would love to see you guys in action! Preaching, that is.

  6. Just goes to show, a picture of studio wrestlers can really spruce up your blog!

    You could have cool stage names and signature moves you know...

  7. Perhaps we should give lycra more consideration...that could be a church growth strategy that is untapped!

    Will keep you posted.
