garage sale to raise money for our church building fund. Many people asked about the church and the building, so I'll tell you what I told them: We're a church of about 200 people, and we've never owned a building. We're currently meeting at a cheesy wedding chapel (two services, because the place is so small). Before that we were in the conference room of the Holiday Inn. Before that, evening services at another church in town. Before that, the cafeteria of a Catholic elementary school. And that's all since I've been attending (the last 8 years). We don't currently have a building or land that we want to buy, but we want to be ready when the right place comes along. We're tired of being nomadic.
The garage sale was a great success! We had nearly perfect weather (just a bit of wind on Saturday), we always had the help we needed, and we raised an impressive amount of money.
However, when I say that's what I spent last week doing, that's exactly what I mean. Last week I slept, ate (sometimes), breastfed my baby, and worked on the garage sale. That's it.
Oh, except for the 10 hours I spent watching the revamped Doctor Who, season 1.
