Kids and McDonalds

I am sitting in McDonalds watching my kids play.  That's always a great idea right after loading them up with ice cream. Tonight, we have 3 Amberg offspring with us and they are having a blast. But, McDonalds has changed since I was a kid.

I remember the days of the Hamburglar, Ronald, the fry guys and the whole crew. None of these kids know any of the characters beyond the big headed clown. I remember the days when a cheeseburger and fries, and a kids size cup of water made for an amazing day. Now, a kid isn't satisfied unless they have 12 chicken Mcnuggets, 8 return trips to the soda fountain,  and a McFlurry to cap it all off.

But, there are some things That are still the same. The prices are still pretty cheap, kids think they're in some kind of greasy version of child-heaven, and the food is still awful. Oh well....I guess things haven't changed so much after all.

17 Songs in 2 Months

The Immanuel Choir is no working on music for our Carnegie Hall Concert on October, 18, 2010. We have 2 months to put together 17 songs. Though that's a huge task, I have no doubt we're going to do it - and do it well. 40 of our choir members will be joining us on the trip. I can't wait!

Come join us on Wednesday nights at 6:30pm and lead worship with us each Sunday morning.
