Tonight our family had the amazing privilege of witnessing the ground breaking of our church’s sanctuary! It’s been a snowy day here in Kansas City, and was lightly snowing as the ground breaking happened at the end of this evening’s worship service. That didn’t deter the couple of thousand that came out for tonight’s service though!
It was quickly getting dark, as you’ll see in these photos I took before my fingers froze, but was a moment we won’t forget! We’ll be that much more excited when it opens in a couple of years, because we were there when the ground was broken!
The boys breaking some ground – they totally didn’t grasp the “just turn a quick scoop of whatever over” concept… I think if we’d let them continue, there would have been a trench around the cross!
Lily got in on the digging action, while standing right at my feet! The children’s ministry handed out the hard hats to the kids as they left programming tonight (and they’ll do it again tomorrow)!
A rare photo with all 6 of us in it! I couldn’t turn it down when a friend offered to take one, so I set the camera on auto, let go of my “ugh – the flash is going to fire, and I hate my flash” feelings, and made it happen! The blobs all over the place? Snowflakes!
Then we headed over the construction fence, to tie on our ribbons, which were covered with our dreams and prayers for the church! (Gettin’ dark out here!)
