Hey everybody! I was gone over the weekend because a guy from our fellowship, SMSgt Brian Bischoff, who is part of our nation’s Air Force Reserves, took me to Seymour Johnson Air Force base in North Carolina where they hosted a “clergy day”. Clergy is me, I guess. What they did was, load a bunch of pastors into a KC-135 Stratotanker, and took us up on a mid-air refueling mission.
It was amazingly cool. Not so sure how cool it was for the Reservists who basically had to put up with what amounted to a tube of relgious pomposity hurtling through space….but for ME it was fun.
I got a chance to meet a guy named Erik Estep, who is a pastor with Village Church in South Carolina, which happens to be a Southern Baptist plant. We hit it off pretty well…at least from my side of things. He probably hasn’t quit grimacing about the Calvary Chapel jerk he had to put up with on the flight.
Anyway…here’s a video of my flight!
