Changing the world a little at a time……..

 

Here we go guys. As you know my friend Brody has been collecting donations for Blood Water for a while. And all profits from  Jesus>Thirst Tees sold online have gone towards that campaign. So here’s the deal. We are wrapping this thing up in a few days and we need your help. Dig deep and let’s get a well built. You can go over to Brody’s page and donate or you can go to JesusGreaterThan.org and buy a Tee. For those who have..Thank You so much!!

Shalom.

Guess who is leading worship at my church this weekend?

These guys are leading worship in Burlington this weekend. Yep, it’s gonna be awesome!!

How does this apply to your life?

Revelation 3:16 (New International Version)

New International Version (NIV)16 So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth.

Six crazy worship band members, one crazy dentist, The Gladiator and myself………

Just woke up from a much needed nap. Tracy,Spencer, Charles, Phil, Merideth, Alex, Ashley, and myself are all recovering from a quick road trip to Atlanta. These six are the seniors graduating and Tracy and myself took them down to Atlanta for the weekend to check out these guys and these guys. Got to hang out with this guyfor a minute. Thanks Los!! I think they had a pretty good time. I know I did. I got to see another side of the kids that I have never seen. It was interesting, kinda like looking a little deeper into what their little worlds are like.

Anyways, I have to say that I have come back really confused. This was the first time I had ever been to Buckhead or Newspring. I knew quite a bit about Buckhead and how it works. New nothing about New Spring, but I do now. Thanks Tracy! It’s sometimes heartbreaking when you find a church you want to really dive into, but is six hours away. These churches are on fire for God. FIRE. From the leaders to the congregation to the volunteers, all around. I would take any of my non believing friends to these places, before I took them to mine. I know that my unchurched friends would have a great chance connecting at a church like Newspring, but may not have as good of a chance at mine. In fact I don’t know of any church in Burlington that they would.

There used to be a paragraph here, that may have come off the cuff a little harsh. And I believe it was misunderstood. Maybe because of the way I put it, but I have removed it due to MANY text messages I have received in the last hour. I was only trying to say that these two churches catered to the twenty and thirty somethings, which will be the next church leaders, in a way that most are not.

If I offended you, I am really sorry.

 

Shalom……….

RADIOHEAD!!!!!!!!!!!

So Friday night, Taylor and I took off to Charlotte to see what was by far one of the best concerts I have ever seen. This was the first time I had ever had the chance to see Radiohead and it blew me away. The music mix was one of the best I had ever heard. Amphitheaters are not known for their sound quality, but who ever was running their sound had their A game. It was amazing!!! It took me about two songs to pick my jaw up off of the floor. I cannot stress how great it sounded. Their light show ranked up their with a Floyd show. I am not sure what you call what they were using, but it looked like these long fluorescent tubes that covered the whole stage that changed colors in the most amazing ways. There were also two narrow TV screens that span the whole stage and had images of each member of the band as they were playing live. There must have been twenty cameras on stage. The show was so good that the venue did not even turn on their house screens for those lost on the lawn. It would have taken away from the show. But the thing that blew me away was the setlist. it could not have been any more perfect. (in my opinion)

Set 1:
All I need
There there
Airbag
15 step (random raindrops)
Nude
(Dedicated to the good people of north carolina) sail to the moon
Fluffhead>moma dance
Weird fishes/apreggi
Myxamitosis
Idioteque
Morning bell
Videotape
Optimistic
Where I end and you begin
You and whose army?
Everything in its right place
Bangers £ mash
Bodysnatchers
B Side from In Rainbows
Talk show host
Exit music
Planet telex
House of cards
Paranoid android
Reckoner

You and whose army simply one of the finest performances I have ever witnessed. As well as Paranoid Android.

Shalom….
