I got to hang out with another youth minister from our area tonight. Carson Thaxton is the youth minister over at First United Methodist Church Of Fayetteville. Our daughters are about the same age, so we thought it might be cool to get our families together. We had them over for dinner tonight. It was cool to be able to hang out and meet his family, talk about ministry, but mainly just have fun, eat and get to know him better. Carson's a really cool guy who I'll hopefully get to know better.
I love being able to hang out with other guys doing ministry. It helps me reduce my stress level. It's also cool just to be able to hang out and talk ministry and other stuff with no agenda. JM

I couldn't agree more. It's been a blessing since I've been here on Long Island to have colleagues who with listen to, pray for, and pray with me.

It's been a lot of fun, and tremendously encouraging for me. I especially love the moments when I'm just hanging out with someone who understands what I do, but we're not talking about ministry or anything, we're just hanging out. JM
