Today was week three of the Mythbusters Series and we asked the question, Is Christianity in America “Too Big to Fail”? Today Josiah left his place as Chief Creative Officer “behind the scenes” and grabbed a mike as we discussed the similarities between Christianity in America and the “Big Three”. (Not the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost…but GM, Ford, and Chrysler) I thought Josiah did a great job pointing out how his generation (twenty somethings), resents church working with Government to “legislate morality”… It seems that car companies and religions both turn to Government to “force” people to “buy” their product when people remain unconvinced on their own. I ended the talk by reading from 2 Timothy 4:1-5… We must tell people the good news of Jesus whether the circumstances are convenient…or not. It’s what we do…it’s our “industry”…
Lots of good txt messages today (and some loony ones:-) we were having technical difficulties and couldn’t post any on the screens today…but be assured Josiah and I will address them on “Txt Tuesday”
Get a Life onstage today…I really dig their cover of “Never underestimate my Jesus” by Reliant K… (I know that’s not the real name…but it’s what I remember of the song.)
Caycee and Brett from The pledge were in the service…their song “Way with Words” Debuted on “Under the Radar” on 105.7 the X tonight! Way to go guys…we are really fortunate to have such great bands play actionchurch.
Thanks for all the iPhone pics from “Stage Manager General” Garrett…you’ll be hearing more from him on the blog soon…oh yeah.
I thought it was really appropriate that the “Big Cog” logo we project on the wall flickered and went out at the end of the service…we got it fixed but thats just the way equipment has worked lately…except for the Apple products. (disclaimer for all you mac-zealots)
I really enjoyed having Josiah on stage…even though he made the comment that “he was too young to remember Ronald Reagan”…wow. I was out of highschool and working on growing the “Greatest Mullet ever” by the time he was born…
I heard a kid walking out this afternoon telling his mom how “cool” actionkidz was…my little Reagan thinks so too…way to go all of you!
It’s hard to believe that we’re about to celebrate our first “birthday” as a church in three weeks…who thought we would survive this long???
I am really looking forward to February…January has been pretty tough so far…lots of “difficulty”…in my “experience” at actionchurch that generally means really amazing things are coming! It’s all good…
