Today I’ve been on the go nearly all day and am none the worst for wear. I’m making good progress on my recovery from back surgeries.
This morning I went to church with John and Karen. Karen left a little early because she needed to prepare her classroom for teaching the four-year-old children. John and I went later. We had to take the long way around because of a train stopped at the crossing where we normally would have driven, but we arrived at church on time.
This afternoon we drove to Hutto to attend the dedication of The Bridge Community Church. We saw a few people that we knew. We all used to worship with that congregation when they were called Austin Central and were located in northeast Austin. In 2007 they sold this property and bought 70 acres in Hutto, a growing Austin suburb. They built an 18,000-square-foot facility and began having services there in May 2014. The name was changed to The Bridge Community Church because of the symbolism of Christ as the bridge between God and Man. I’m not sure how to classify the architectural style and décor but it is interesting.
They want to help further causes already in progress in the Hutto area. For example, they have allowed CTX Ability Sports to build an adaptive field for children with physical and intellectual disabilities on the property and use it without charge. There are also a basketball court, baseball field and other sports facilities, which can be used by other churches and organizations in the community.
Upon returning to Kyle we had dinner at Casa Maria’s Mexican restaurant.
