Sunday Blitz

> It appears we don't have too many Josh Groban fans in the church. The song went really well, and fit perfectly with the message, but it was like we were singing in front of a brick wall. Or maybe that was just the overall vibe of the entire seemed the energy level was way down yesterday.

> The message was solid. Don't Give Up! I'm guessing it's something that a lot of other people needed to hear as well.

> I taught my NHCU: Discovering Worship CLASS for about the 6th time yesterday. Haven't taught since November because we've been out of town. I only had 10 students, which is just under the perfect size for that class, but we had a good time, and I finished early for the first time ever, although I had to cut out some stuff as I was moving along. One of my goals for today is to edit (again) my material so that I don't have to feel so rushed as I'm teaching.

> We'll be wrapping up our "What If?" series in a few weeks, and moving on to something new. One of my favorite things to do is create the graphics for stuff around the church. I'm certainly no professional, but I think I get by pretty well considering. I am very excited because we just purchased a copy of Adobe Illustrator, which is much more intense and fun than what I've been using.

> Speaking of which, here is the final version of the "40 Days of Prayer" graphic that we decided on. Thanks for your help!

> The MilePost13 Band will be performing at the annual Watermelon Festival at Kitty Hawk Kites in Nags Head, NC (directly across the street from the church) on August 14, from 11am to 3pm. This is a fundraiser (can't remember what for at the moment, but I'll let you know) that KHK puts on every year, and they've asked us to provide some music. We're stoked, and praying hard for some "cool" August weather...

> That's all I've got for today. Need to go do some real work now, and then grab some lunch. Later!

I hate those sundays - where I feel so disconnected and cannot seem to get my mind into the right place to concentrate on the moment - a lot of mine is a medical situation that I'm dealing with, it plays 'tricks' with my mind, giving me a slightly "off" or disoriented feeling at times and I have a hard time focusing while it's in effect. Then, a lot of is just plain over tired from the crazy hours and numbers of days I work without a break.

But, I also notice that there are just some Sundays where everyone seems to be "clicking" with worship and the message, and then others where we all seem to be in a fog of some sort. Drives me crazy when I have 1 of those days!

On the josh groban thing, I went to you tube and listened to him - way too operatic/pretentious-sounding for me to enjoy - the songs were beautiful lyric wise, but the voice - eeeekkk! definitely not something I would actually pay money to hear over and over again personally! I tend to prefer more craggly voices for lack of a better word, not so perfect, can't think of how to explain it... having 1 of those "fog day afternoons!"

One of our elders did a sermon series (3) on prayer that was really good. The guy who did it is one of the most well-versed, theologically sound men I have ever met. It's good stuff. Check it out if you have time...or have your dad. The website is Click through and find it under "sermons" 05/28/08 through 06/08/08. They can send you the file over email!
