Being A Church Of Extravagant Welcome

What a FABULOUS morning!

We had a workshop at my church this morning on how to be a church of "Extravagant Welcome".  One of my passions - in study and in practice - is finding ways to integrate old faith and traditions into the 21st century and this definitely spoke to a lot of my interests!

Continental breakfast spread of muffins, croissants, yogurt, fruit and danishes.  Bribe with food - church people will come!

I got home around 1:30 and made an amaaaaazing bowl of fried rice.

It was non-traditional in a way (I had no eggs or already cooked chicken), but still delicious!

I started by sauteing a small can of mushrooms and some minced onion in butter.  When they were nice and brown I threw in some frozen vegetables and tossed everything in soy sauce.  Then I chopped up some walnuts and threw those in.  Once the veggies and walnuts were warm I dumped in some rice, threw in more soy sauce and a few sprinkles of sugar.  It was delicious!

I'm trying to decide what to do next.  I was up late last night and when my alarm went off at 6 I was not feeling well rested!  Maybe I'll just relax ...

What have you all been up to today?
