A Quick Life Update

I haven't given an update in a while, so here's a brief one:

We are doing well. I continue to work at JCB here in Savannah as a Quality Team Leader. My wife Alice homeschools our two younger children, who are now both in highschool. Our oldest attends AASU and lives at home. Both our daughters work at Chick-fil-A part time (yum!). Various homeschool activities keep us busy as well; for example, we're going on a family campout in November. Additionally, we like to go to the beach, walk around the historic district, and read a lot.

Regarding church stuff, we are in a constant learning process. Alice and I continue to find out new things about what the church is, what it is not, and what it can and should be. Like many of you, we've moved way past the institutional phase. We simply want to be an active part of the organism. We desire to continuously grow closer to Jesus Christ and help our brothers and sisters do the same.

We gather with a small group of other families. This doesn't happen every week, but does as the schedule permits. We meet in a simple manner, trying to follow the biblical model. Alice and I don't view this small group as our church. Rather, we see all Christians as part of Christ's church. Therefore, we enjoy fellowship with all brothers and sisters whenever we have the opportunity.

To sum up: we're doing well, we're busy, and we're still learning.

Randi Jo,

I'm so happy that God seems to be freeing his people from the bonds of specific "church membership." All brothers and sisters in Christ make up the church. We should feel free to gather with one another whenever, wherever, and whoever.
