Well, it’s been a quiet week in my hometown

Hi everyone, I hope summer’s treating you well. It sure has been quiet without all of you here, but alas, we’ve been managing by. Here’s a little snapshot of what’s been happening in Kairos and Gracepoint at Berkeley (with the most recent event first):

Memorial Day Picnic (5/26)

Chanhee, Liz (Kairos 1), Jessica, and Ernie (Kairos 1)

All of Gracepoint (or those who were here) gathered for a fun in the sun at Paradise Park in Tiburon (north of SF). Actually, the sun came out only towards the end, but that didn’t prevent us from having fun. From volleyball, football, soccer, ultimate frisbee to organized games, there were more than enough games to keep us busy. 

I mustn’t forget to mention that there was plenty of food, too. If you’ve experienced our potluck towards the end of last semester, this was the mother of all potlucks. The meat shortage didn’t deter people for coming up with creative alternatives (see left)!

One of the highlights from this picnic was the obligatory drenching of a director — who somehow always turns out to be Pastor Manny. Andy Tung orchestrated this event, and as you can see below, P. Manny very much wanted to show his appreciation for Andy’s thoughtful action:

A devastating picture is worth a thousand devastating words

As the unknown photographer (who took a lot of great shots, might I add) continued snapping away, P. Manny turned his vengeance attention towards him:

“Oh my! What are you doing with that camera? Give that to me!”

All in all, it was a ton of fun in the… cold!

That’s the news from Berkeley, where all the women are strong, all the men are good looking, and all the children are… above average.*

    Hey Abe, great post!! It has been fun though much more quiet around here. You forgot to mention that the only reason we drenched Pastor Manny was to give him a fitting farewell as he prepares to lead our church plant in Austin, TX. It was kind of like the gatorade bath that winning coaches get at the end of bowl games!! I was privileged to be part of it 😉

    LOL, I’m going to assume that after that picture, the cameraman was thereafter mauled by P. Manny 😛

    I’m missing more and more of the fun stuff
