Today was great. We got to use the new screen and projector for the first time. The crew set up the pipe and drape to get measurements again in order to fit the screen in just right. Sarah brought the computer for the first time and did a great job. Matt did awesome with the music, Eric did awesome with the screen and tech stuff, Hick and KG of course handled the pipe and drape and everyone helped clean up afterwards. We have an awesome core staff. In two weeks we'll be having our Pod day and we are really looking forward to it. I'm very excited about it. Pod day is June 27th, Location is still TBA. Sarah just finished the video and she did a fantastic job. We'll be posting it sometime soon. The video, for those of you who don't know, is just a few clips of people in our core group that we hope will inspire others to get involved.
Here are a few thoughts from today.
-God is not concerned with our convenience, He is concerned with the salvation of people.
-If you are a believer, your desire to be convenient has the potential to send people to Hell.
-If you are an unbeliever, your desire to be convenient has the potential to send you to Hell.
-When people tell me that they just need to get some things straight in their life before they get into church what I really hear them saying is "I'm just not ready to give up doing some things that I know are wrong because I love them more than Jesus."
-I wonder how frequently I choose convenience over Jesus? It breaks my heart to start listing.
-If we took a shower as often as we pray, our spiritual lives would smell just like our bodies, and most of us would stink!
