i’m sitting in our church worship center at the 2nd-from-final rehearsal for our middle school one life revolution variety show (which is next weekend). last year, we had hoped to raise $3000 to build a house, but ended up with $25000. our middle schoolers decided to use the funds to put in two clean-water wells for a village in zambia that didn’t have them.
anyhow — i hadn’t seen most of the acts for this year before today. and at this very moment, as i type, there’s a 6th grade boy on stage doing a hula-hoop dance act to a disco song — hollywood swingin’. it’s a riot — another year or two and he’d never be caught dead on stage doing this. but he’s totally into it, and it’s very fun.
