Not Our Typical Wednesday Devotional

Normally Wednesdays are our days that we have our weekly devotional with a group of older kids (10-15). We generally meet on the stairsteps that we built a while back and have a rousing good time. This past week Betty Chinchilla from the Peace & Justice Project called me up and asked if she could bring out a friend from the local government during our devotional time. In that I always like to mix it up and keep things fresh I readily agreed. We met in a local church instead of on the steps because Betty managed to round about 40 more kids than what normally come. The local lawmaker presented on caring for God's creation and also managed to bring out some television crews...they interviewed me but I was so nervous I just stammered through an incoherent response.
