So we visited Covenant Life Church in Gaithersburg, MD this past Sunday. It was a great church and had what I can only describe was a very sweet spirit at the church. I really enjoyed the service there. We got to hear CJ Mahaney preach also.
After the service I hung around for a few minutes to meet Joshua Harris and CJ Mahaney. If you don’t know who Joshua Harris is, he is the author of I Kissed Dating Goodbye, Boy Meets Girl, a few other great books and his latest book, Dug Down Deep. Joshua Harris was busy praying with a few people after the service so basically the whole place had emptied out by the time that I actually started talking to him.
Meanwhile Amy was corralling the boys all around the church. We had walked into the foyer with Josh. Now if you know my boys at all you know that they are very high energy, especially Aiden. You also need to know that myself and the boys wrestle a lot at our house.
Aiden being the little wrestler that he is ran up to Joshua Harris and just started trying to hit, fight and wrestle with him before we had even introduced Aiden to Josh. Before I even had time to be embarrassed and stop Aiden from hitting him, Josh started fighting right back. It was hilarious. He was doing Karate poses and all kinds of stuff.
So refreshing to meet “big time pastors” who are so unpretentious and down to earth. I think Aiden has a new friend.
