I’m back, but where Where’s Geraldo?

Back to the blogging world…

For those not in ATL, it is going to be a gorgeous day here. This was my view this morning as I did my devotional. I recently started The Message//Remix: Solo by Eugene H. Peterson and I’ll talk more about it once I get deeper into it. (Yes Michele, I am pimpin’ the Amazon link because it’s $4 cheaper there…) But anyway, it was quite an inspirational way to start my morning. I think it’s going to be a good day.

When I got back to my cube, I realized that I must continue my journey into inspirational locations so I’m continuing my mobile office tour of Buckhead Church. Today I am in the 1st grade UpStreet Room. I’m going to let Jill tell us more about UpStreet in the comment section since I bet someone is going to tap her on the shoulder and tell her she’s been tagged for it. Thanks!


So anyway, our 1st graders get quite a view of the outside world as you can see. I really like this room because it has lots of natural light, it is quiet, and no one knows I’m in here looking out at them. I can watch the world go by from the safety of my little fishbowl. Natalie, You may not want to come in here today because I know how fish scare you and I’m feeling pretty fishy today.

So if anyone needs me, I’ll be sitting in here with my coloring books all day…

  1. Jer…the next time you are with the coloring books you better let me know! I love to color and I love those stinkin windows …the ones with the natural light

  2. OK, I think this might be my first official tag from blog world – a big step! Glad to hear you love the 1st grade room – I like it too…those first graders definitely have the best view, but I don’t think they appreciate it.

    So – UpStreet: Umm..what can I say..it’s my life now so I’d say I’m pretty passionate about it!! No, but seriously, if you’ve never hung out on UpStreet on a Sunday morning consider this your invitation. Come on up and hang with us for an hour – it’s loads of fun! Our kids are connected in small groups, experience great worship and Bible story telling in large group, and our volunteers love it. I mean, not to rag on “big church”, but, we do pretty often get the comment “I think I learn more here than I do in church”…I don’t know that it’s true, but, we do teach things in a way that kids AND adults really GET it..sometimes the simple things are the most important, you know? Check out our new UpStreet blog at http://www.buckheadupstreet.wordpress.com (sorry – I’m new and don’t know how to link yet) There you can hear some cool stories and meet some of our amazing volunteers.

  3. Thanks Jill. You guys are awesome! I never see anyone come out of UpStreet that doesn’t have a smile on their face. That says a lot about what you’re doing in my opinion. Keep up the good work!
