Totally agree with the least favorite college team... I have to remember to dig out that Penn State lion stencil before you get moved into the office at the church.... hmm I'm sure Newell and a few others would help me paint your office :)

Linda Goodale said...

Can I take back the I make a great liverwurst sandwhich? Don't like NASCAR! Or the Red Wings! No Tigers either. What's next?

Pastor Scott said...

Sorry to disappoint you, Linda! But I do like Jesus! At least we will be able to agree on that!

Pastor Scott said...

Oh, Tiffany, don't do me any favors. After living in Penn State territory I am tired of seeing those Blue and White colors.

Joy said...

Never get tired of JoePa and the PSU Blue and White...and I bleed Black and Gold. Sure is a good thing I got to know you and love you as my pastor before I knew your sports teams, huh?

Spent some time with about 25 or so "old" friends last night and one of the topics of conversations was your move to Gaylord...and then a couple shared some past experiences with wise counsel you gave them so many years ago. I told them all to look you up here. Karen Hainline and Jane Bond specifically said hello.

You folks in Gaylord will be blessed!

Pastor Scott said...

Kim - you're lucky I didn't list my top 3 teams I like least - after Michigan would have come Penn State followed closely by those Irish!

Pastor Scott said...

Hi Joy! WOW! Just hearing those names brings back a lot of really good memories from ministry days in the great state of Ohio! Blessings to all of you!
