Dots

* The first ever MSFly event on Second Life was successful. Over 760 “avatars” participated in the event and most importantly, we were able to raise over $32,000 to help create a world free of MS.

* Next week I'll be camp pastor at the South Carolina Baptist Convention's Young Musicians Camp for 3rd - 5th grade kids and Music Mini-Camp for 1st and 2nd graders. We're expecting over 300 Young Musicians and about 125 Mini Campers.

* Kim and Katie are heading to a southern Caribbean island that should remain publicly unnamed on a 10-day mission.

* Acupuncture helps relieve the pain of shingles.

* One of Scott's buddies who attends the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music visited a while back and left behind a book he finished up while here: Island by Aldous Huxley. Being in between books, I picked it up the other day. Check out this quote: Faith is something very different from belief. Belief is the systematic taking of unanalyzed words much too seriously...Give us this day our daily Faith, but deliver us, dear God, from Belief.

That's a lot of info in just a few little dots! Hope K & K have a great trip. You, too, for that matter!

Glad the acupuncture helps. I think Anna would have consented to it - as much as she hates needles - if it had offered her relief!

That's fantastic about the Second Life fund raiser. I've just started learning about Second Life and am glad to hear that it can achieve such positive outcomes.
