I just had a unique experience... I just returned home from a party in which I was purposely made to feel like one of the gang. I wasn't "pastor" - just Brian. No "hide the beer, the pastor's here" because everyone felt comfortable just being themselves and letting me be myself.
And I came home with some nice swag - coasters, each bearing a beautiful picture of Rusty, our worship team leader.
You can't beat it!
