We’re back! Sorry for the long duration between blog posts but I think it was needed and there may be more of the same as we move forward from here. Things are going well these days.
As a family, we eagerly anticipating Mac’s arrival this November. Anita and I finally decided on his name and what we want his room to look like. Check the registry at Baby’s R Us if you’re interested in the room stuff. As for his name, we made it official a few days ago. Steven Phillip McCart III will be our son’s name. In an effort to avoid silly nicknames like “Lil Stevie” “Lil Phillip” “Trip” “Chip” or “Trey” we will be calling him Mac. Mac means son and plus, it sounds kind of tough.
As for work, things are great. Next week we’re off to VELOCITY! This is the first student camp Northwood has produced and we’ve got a decent size crowd going. Along with all the camp prep, we’re busy with some great series in our regular weekly services. Below you’ll see the bumper for our current High School Ministry series on Apologetics called “KNOWING.” Enjoy.

I'm not sure when it started.
I can only tell you that it's still going on.
Tears. Sorrow. Weeping. Loneliness. Heaviness.
I've been trying to figure it out on my own for a couple of weeks now.
I considered that I was due.
Could it be from working out so much lately?
Is it sympathy hormones for my beautiful pregnant wife?
I thought it was just stress.
Maybe the announcement of a son uncorked some emotional bottle…
Perhaps the responsibilities of family, work and friendships has finally been felt.
The truth is that for about two weeks I have either flat out cried or been on the verge of crying at least once a day with the exception of a two day dry spell.
I've talked to a select few about this and now I turn to you.
Pray that this is a good thing.
Pray that it is leading me to God in a deeper fashion than I've experienced before.
Pray that God wouldn't let this pass without using it in a powerful way for His Kingdom.
Pray that as I'm away I will pour my heart and soul into my first calling.
This is who I am; where I am.
Hi, my name is "Yours."
