Is That You GOD?

Sometimes the Lord just has to be rather blunt with me to get me to focus. I’m pretty sure it was the case in this instance when I ran across this today…


How many of you can’t help but do every single one of those to make your day complete? I know that it’s like a nervous twitch for me not to hop on Twitter or my email every hour…


The New & Improved Audio.

So it’s been no less than a whole year since we’ve had our dog Audio groomed. It may be that long since she’s actually had a bath! That’s what having a new baby does I guess.

But we finally anted up today and took her to be primped. Here’s the before and after….



Quite a transition….she looks like criminal in a mug shot in the top picture!

Cruz Is Already Surfing…

He’s already making deals on the Net…


Super Bowl XLIII.

evg_1218637303Oh man, has this Sunday been a LONG time coming. I don’t follow football religiously or anything, but the fact that the Cardinals are finally in the Big Game is a really huge deal here in Phoenix. The red birds haven’t played on this glorious Sunday in like 38 decades or something ridiculous like that.

So here’s my questions for the day.

If you do NOT hail from, originate, deeply love, were born in, are a Steelers fan, or have some weird infatuation with the city of Pittsburgh, why in the CRAP would you want to root for the Steelers?? Is this not America?? When did we begin to not love to watch the “underdog” come from behind in glorious fashion? It’s like watching a World Series between the Cubs and Yankees and hoping the Yanks kill the those lovable but always losing Cubbies.

Right now, my wife has the Martha Stewart show on in the background and I heard Martha say as she sports her Steelers jersey that “my team is really the NY Giants so since they are not in the game, I’m just defaulting to the Steelers.”

What a joke.

Of course I’m a bit biased, but how absolutely boring and typical will it be if the Steelers come through in the end.

I’m just saying….

Easter 2009

We have a Creative Development meeting for Easter today at 1:30pm. The cool part that I am stoked about is that we have invited people outside of our community to come and pour out their ideas and creative thinking. There are going to be artistic, driven minds from several different churches coming together to create and plan and cast vision for what God would want to say to our people this Easter season.

And the beauty of it is that we’re all going to be helping each other. Many churches becoming the Church. At least for a few hours.

I can’t wait till we start inviting leaders from outside the church walls to these meetings. That will be sweet and stretching all in the same breath.

What are you doing this year to tell the rescuing story of Easter in a fresh way to the thousands of people that step foot inside a church door only on Easter and Christmas?

The Modern Church According To Apple.

So Apple’s engineers developing the new Logic Pro Studio Effects have an interesting view of the “Modern Church”…unless you consider Byzantine era slave sacrifices and Gregorian chanting part of your regular ministry programs.

Click HERE and then select “Modern Church” in the Space Designer box. Once the window opens hit the button that says “With Space Designer”. Then sit back and worship with your favorite modern worship tunes…

Just In Case You Didn’t Know…

In case you haven’t been informed…in March, the year is going to get that much better…
