Happy Monday

Happy Monday, a weekend review and a look ahead.

Let’s begin with the good news (so I can display the London Olympics icon).  Opening ceremonies for the 2012 Olympic Games are this Friday.  For over 100 years the Olympics have been an occasion for the nations of the world to put their differences aside and meet on the athletic field.  London2012.com is the official website.  I will probably provide commentary and keep a running tab of American medals on my other blog.

Box Office numbers are not being released for Dark Knight Rises out of respect for Aurora, CO shooting victims.  We have been praying for Colorado during the weeks of wildfires and home destruction, and will continue to pray for Colorado now.  James Holmes will make his first appearance in court today. UPDATE – Formal charges will be filed on Monday, July 3o.

If you read this blog and are gay (probably a small demographic) you’ll want to find and join a Chick-fil-A boycott this week.  Despite the chain’s official statement to continue serving everyone equally without discrimination, and leave the same-sex marriage debate to the politicians, Chick-fil-A is the target of GBLT boycotts and protests.  For the rest of us, Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day is August 1.  Like I said, as for me and my house…

Word of encouragement  “…God is in the business of setting us up with just what is necessary for us to get to that place where we need to be. Keep serving others. Keep putting others first. Keep using your gifts to bless others. You never know when God will open a door for you.”  More here from Walter Bright

Here’s a story I had pegged for the Read and Share File, but haven’t put together enough to publish another installment yet.  John Boyers, pictured left, will coordinate 160 chaplains serving at the summer games in London.  His regular “gig” is pastoring the players and staff of Manchester United, so he is right in his element.  Read the full story at Baptist Press.

I’m looking forward to the week ahead.  Keep my family in your prayers and have a Happy Monday :- D

One thought on “Happy Monday

  1. From the Master’s Table facebook page:

    Our culture tends to love Friday (TGIF) and hates Monday, but I have often found after a long eventful weekend it’s good to settle back into a routine on Monday morning. For those in the ministry, Sunday is hardly a “day of rest.” So I got in the potentially annoying habit of wishing people a Happy Monday.

    I’m hoping Happy Monday becomes a regular feature on The Master’s Table, reviewing events that readers may have missed over the weekend and looking ahead to the coming week. There will be a handful of items covered briefly, with plenty of encouragement because, well, it is Monday after all.
