Craig's Idea of a Perfect Day

1.  Sunny day at the beach - with long walks, a great book to curl up with at the edge of the surf, and a great seafood dinner.

2.  Camping in the mountains - near a lake or stream, hiking, and great food and conversation with good friends around the campfire.

3.  A packed sanctuary for worship - with everyone fired up to get out the doors to engage in mission during the week.
