I love big cities......

I am so glad to be back in a Metro area! Call me crazy but I even like the traffic. When I see lots of cars, I see people who need Jesus! Charlotte is a cool town. I love downtown. It is actually a place you can go at night--unlike downtown Atlanta. I have only 2 beefs. One is there is not a Starbucks in my general vicinity. There's one in Northlake Mall, which is only 10 minutes away, but it is in the opposite direction of the church. So I go to a local shop to meet people. Haven't met many yet. They have free wi-fi which is nice. The second is shopping is far away, except the mall and Wal-mart. Home Depot and Lowes are at least 25 min. away. I've been told things will change when I-485 is finished circling Charlotte. We live only a few miles from where it will pass. So we have that to look forward to. Looking forward to the weekend. I speak on Sunday for the 1st time (well actually I spoke on Wed.) in as Lead Pastor at DMBC. I'm talking about the big "MO" (momentum) and hope we can get the ball rolling here. I can't wait to watch the NFL playoffs. I am turning to the dark side and pulling for the Panthers (I still like the Falcons and Vick). One of the Panthers lives at the end of our street. I hope to meet him soon. Cassandra is excited about the homeschooling opportunities here. They have so much more to offer than Mobile. Not quite what Atlanta had but still good. Jacob and Hope will start going to a few classes with other homeschoolers next week. Update: 4:42 PM I'm pumped, I just found a Schlotzskys! They went out of biz in Mobile. I love that place! Awesome! God is good! I also got off the phone with Larry Anderson of Youth For Christ and I think he is going to help me in the area of staffing. Cool! God really is good!

Kevin, I did not forget about the UPS Stuff. I just got a new batch of goodies in today. I will send them to your address.

Good luck on Sunday!!!

I grew up in Greenville, SC but have family in Rock Hill and Fort Mill. I like both Charlotte and Atlanta. But as for Starbucks, to me Starbucks is perfect for traveling and the occasional treat. But I love the local coffee shop (esp with free wi-fi!). Wish we had more of them here in Orlando.

I love Charlotte! I almost moved there, 'cause my sister lives in Fort Mill, but God brought me to Nashville instead. Perhaps one day I'll end up there. (in the meantime I visit a lot). Ah, but don't forget... it's not "downtown" it's "Uptown". ;)

The lack of Starbucks is a problem, but I think they're working on that... Slowly but surely I'm seeing more of them crop up -- one just opened in Fort Mill, yay!!!

I'll be praying for you on Sunday. Is this a new church plant, or an established church?

Go Panthers!!

I hate Starbucks as it has become the place pastors hang out so that wouldn't be a big deal to me.

The Scholtzkys here in Canton closed down. I wasn't a big fan so it was no big deal.

I love Charlotte. Good luck there. I hope it is what you have been looking for.

Thanks for the inside info on "Uptown." We are transitioning a church in NW Charlotte. Great people!


Glad you stopped by. How is it at Riverstone? I laughed at your post about the mix-up for King-Kong. We had a similar problem there for Star Wars II. I'm glad you are able to reach that area. I'm not as you say, "red-neck" enough. Awesome that Rick Steiner is mayor! Tell Richard hello!
