Personal, Silly and LCC Questions from Sunday’s Q&A

Personal / Silly Questions

What is your favorite letter of the alphabet and why is it E?

Jessica, our keyboardist loves the letter “E” and a couple weeks ago, I was kinda teasing her about it, so she asked this great question and a number of you voted for it. I don’t think my favorite letter would be E. I mean, E is totally the most useful of all the letters, but I don’t think I can call it my favorite. I’m a pretty big fan of the alphabet, and I’m a fan of alphabets in other languages too. But I think perhaps my favorite letter of all time is ?.

Have you had a Crumbl Cookie? If so what’s your favorite flavor?

I have not had a crumble cookie yet. (Doing a Google now…) Based on their menu, I’d order the Brownie Batter or the Peanut Butter Cookies and Cream. However, I’ll be honest, none of them really appeal to me. I’m a fan of trying new things, so I’ll totally eat any of them, but none of them meet my personal criteria:

  • My Chocolate Chip Cookie: crispy on the outside, fully cooked all the way through, semi-sweet (not milk) chocolate chips and walnut pieces.
  • My Oatmeal Cookie: just a hint of cinnamon and YES RAISINS.
  • My Peanut Butter Cookie: should be made with chunky or crunchy peanut butter and should hold together when dipped in milk
  • And, while I’m on the topic, brownies should not be gooey in the middle, nor should cookies.
  • And, while I’m on the topic, I will still eat any cookie or brownie whether it meets my criteria or not.

What’s your favorite Starbuck’s order?

Americano is the only black coffee I appreciate from Starbucks.

Flat White is my favorite milk drink.

Never syrup.

In the past, I’ve been known to order a cup of steamed milk and a tea bag whereupon I would make my own chai tea for half as much as their Chai Latte.

What’s your favorite board game?

It’s not a board game per se, but I really like Munchkin. My second favorite is called Pente.

Who is your favorite person in 1 and 2 Samuel?

Personally, I think Samuel is a spiritual behemoth, but I relate more to David. From the time I was a child, it was always my ambition to be known as a person after God’s own heart. Also, I’m a huge fan of Abigail and Jonathan.

If somebody gives you Playdoh, do you first make a ball, a snake, or something else?

Squoosh it first between the fingers, then ball it up again because you feel guilty for the squoosh, then flatten it into a circle, then roll it up like a cinnamon roll, and keep rolling until it becomes a snake.

LCC Questions

What is your vision for the church this year?

Ahh… you’ll have to come to our January series to get the vision for next year! But for real, those who have been part of LCC for years know that I don’t talk a lot about “vision” for the church because I think a lot of churches do “vision” wrong. A lot of churches set goals for attendance and offerings and all that, but my hope and my prayer has always been and always will be that we would help people follow Jesus. It’s simple. It doesn’t have the flash of a take-the-hills kind of vision statement, but it’s what Jesus told us to do. My vision is that each member of the church would love Jesus and follow him so authentically in the world that the world takes notice. My vision is that each member of the church would so reflect the life of Jesus that when they ask their friend to come to church, their friend is eager to say yes.

Can the congregation request songs for the band to play?

Yes, feel free to send me any ideas you have, old or new. I can be reached most easily right from the left menu of our church app.

Any news on what is going on with the buildings next door?

We sold them last Spring! We simply didn’t have enough money to renovate them, and they were becoming a financial burden on us, so we just sold them in the springtime.
