This weekend marks the annual Latah (pronouced Lay-tah) Market that is held in the parking lot of the Trading Company supermarket about a half mile north of where our church is. Up until this year this even has been held in early June, and it has turned out to be cool windy and wet. Being that it is July that is not a problem. We usually don't get rain from about the fourth of July until late September. It was pretty toasty today, near 90 degrees, and the breeze only kicked up on a few occasions. Each year St. John's has a very large booth where we have a bake sale and give out information about our church and school. The baked goods are made and donated by the members of the church, and as per usual we had more than enough to feed the Russian army, the Polish army, the Bulgarian army, the Romanian army and the Rhode Island army (there aren't a whole lot of them, so they are pretty easy to feed!). Tomorrow is day two, so we will see if we can sell it all...the proceeds are going to fund our Vacation Bible School and the youth group.
For tomorrow morning's church service the theme is "The Parable of the Good Samaritan. That is what the sermon will be based on. I have a little different take on the whole thing, and I am going to take the opportunity to bag on lawyers. Actually, I am only going to bag on one particular lawyer. After church we are going to have a tutorial session on our new sprinkler system in the backyard, and then it will be off to the Latah Market again. The even wraps up at 4:00pm tomorrow, and then it will be back home to cook a "beer-butt chicken" and have a beer or two.
