A “new and improved” FamTeam Day/Softball Classic will be held on the afternoon of September 14. We had a good deal of rain on our last Classic day, and are hoping for blue skies and crisp temperatures for the upcoming event!
The public is invited to join us on that day, when we gather for a time of Christian inspiration, softball fun (our family team will play a tripleheader), and “feasting.” (The food and snack stands always have family-friendly prices!)
The event will be held on FamTeam Field, which rests near our family homestead.
Questions? Send us an e-mail!

“So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs and closed up the place with flesh. Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. The man said, ‘This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called “woman,” for she was taken out of man.’ For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.”

“‘Or suppose a woman has ten silver coins and loses one. Does she not light a lamp, sweep the house and search carefully until she finds it? And when she finds it, she calls her friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost coin.’ In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.’”

“The woman was a Greek, born in Syrian Phoenicia. She begged Jesus to drive the demon out of her daughter. ‘First let the children eat all they want,’ he told her, ‘for it is not right to take the children’s bread and toss it to their dogs.’ ‘Yes, Lord,’ she replied, ‘but even the dogs under the table eat the children’s crumbs.’ Then he told her, ‘For such a reply, you may go; the demon has left your daughter.’ She went home and found her child lying on the bed, and the demon gone.”

David seems to be enjoying our visit to the CherryBerry frozen yogurt shop. Mary-Elizabeth, Caleb, and Peter are in the background, trying to make some decisions.

“‘Who are you?’ they asked. ‘Just what I have been claiming all along,’ Jesus replied. ‘I have much to say in judgment of you. But he who sent me is reliable, and what I have heard from him I tell the world.’ They did not understand that he was telling them about his Father.”

The dew point is high, and it is a muggy and windless evening here in the nation’s heartland. A few of us are filming a post-game scene for the Vine Valley project.

“Jesus answered, ‘It is the one to whom I will give this piece of bread when I have dipped it in the dish.’ Then, dipping the piece of bread, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, son of Simon. As soon as Judas took the bread, Satan entered into him. ‘What you are about to do, do quickly,’ Jesus told him, but no one at the meal understood why Jesus said this to him.”

“Jesus went out as usual to the Mount of Olives, and his disciples followed him. On reaching the place, he said to them, ‘Pray that you will not fall into temptation.’”

Because Jude and I were gone all day Saturday at the aforementioned wedding, I neglected to pass along the softball scorebook to someone for the Friday night playoffs. Consequently, Nathan came up to my desk early yesterday with the play-by-play of each game scrawled onto a handful of small papers.
