Former Highland member John Lackey has lowered his ERA to 3.30 and is third in the AL in strikeouts behind Johan Santana and Randy Johnson. He's now 12-5 and has been a big part of the Angels' first-place standing. My dream World Series: the Cardinals and the Angels. - - - - Yesterday at second service, a woman about my mom's age read scripture before communion. And as she read Isaiah 53:4-7, she began choking back tears. This godly woman has read that passage thousands of times, and it's still as fresh to her as the first. It was one of the most meaningful moments I've had in worship ever. - - - - I've had a song stuck in my head all weekend. I cannot get it out. "Someone's knockin' at the door; somebody's ringin' the bell . . . ." Why do I get songs like that stuck? Why THAT instead of "Salvation Belongs to Our God"? Or why the Beverly Hillbillies' theme song instead of "In Christ Alone"? The only way I know to get rid of these songs is to pass them along to others. So now it's your problem.

We've never let our children sell things at church. One reason is that the same people wind up being nailed again and again. It puts them in the awkward position of buying more than they want (and perhaps spending more than they have to spend--especially in such a large church) or having to say "no, thanks" while feeling that they've disappointed a child they love. But other parents permit their children to sell there since it is, in fact, their kids' extended family. I see both sides. Any suggestions?
