to boldly go where murph has never gone before: central park [the final frontier]

Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching. Hebrews 10:25 (NIV)

What an amazing day! I usually like to relax on Saturday- hang around the apartment. Read a good book (or three). Man, have I been missing out!! I started my morning by seeing the new "Star Trek" movie with some friends. As someone who has never seen a single Star Trek episode, I was a little apprehensive. It was so good! My man, J.J. Abrams, did a marvelous job! I was never lost or confused. On the contrary, I was completely engrossed in the action and, amazingly, the great story. I even cried a little during a sweet Capt. Kirk/Spock moment. Does crying during Star Trek make you an honorary Trekkie? I would be honored.

Next, I headed off to Central Park (yes, I typed that correctly I went to Central Park). Our core community was having a hang out day and it was so fun!

Due to some unforseen circumstances, we had to hangout on the sidewalk for a while...

They finally opened the lawn and we staked our claim. We spent the rest of the afternoon laughing, playing games, and just enjoying each others company. I'll let you see for yourself what an amazing community I am so blessed to be a part of...
Like I said- what a great day!! Bethany, I know you're reading this (I discovered today that Bethany and I share the same dark, shameful secret- we are hardcore blog/twitter/facebook stalkers. Hardcore.) So, Bethany, please feel free to use any of these photos as your profile pic. You're welcome.

Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. John 15:13 (NIV)
