The pastor and I were talking about our weight - too much of it. We came up with an ideal. Between the two of us, we would like to loose a total of 50 pounds - 20 for me and 30 for the pastor. Our ideal was to have church members commit to putting a certain amount of $ into missions for each pound we loose up until April ( this would be for Annie Armstrong Home missions) Each person/family would decide what they would want to pledge. We would not ask for nor accept any info on the pledges. That would be between them and the Lord. We would weigh in each Sunday AM B4 church and announce the weekly/cumulative results. So what do you think - any additional ideals?
