Roll Call

Sort of a top five thoughts of the day sort of post

1. RED has been posting teases of their "Until we have faces" Release...I'm really excited yet trying not to set my expectations too high.

2. Apparently some movie called "harry potter" comes out soon..i've heard its suppose to be good. I've never read the books but i have seen the other movies...but none of them in you know something about Mike

3.I struggle with letting people know how i'm feeling...i notice this more and more with my CG. I want them to pray for certain things but i never feel like giving the details behind why i feel the way i feel.

4.I have a PS3...see my earlier post on why i did so..anywho..BlackOps is sooo much fun. I love playing online..haven't even touched single player yet haha

5.I also am finding new ways to new church sings songs i'm not very familiar with but that are very powerful. Its good learning new songs that you can shout to God

Psalm 98:1
Sing to the LORD a new song,
for he has done marvelous things;
his right hand and his holy arm
have worked salvation.

The Big Church Syndrome

Having come from a big church and currently attending a big church...i hear the same primary complaint from people who visit, mainly "This church is TOO big." However, I don't think the complaint is directed at the size of the church. What i think the real complaint is "I don't feel like i fit in." I feel that this complaint is easily to address for the church.

If you currently attend a big church:
-look at who is "hugging the wall" in the foyer. These people are probably new to the church and a bit taken back by its size. Greeting them helps connect them to the church and makes them feel involved.
-Similarly, look for those wondering the foyer/sitting alone as they can also be new people.

Basically in case those points didn't do it for you...LOOK FOR NEW FACES! Yes most likely the greeting team welcomed them, but real conversation starts with us stepping out of our comfort zones and saying hello.

Also testing out posting from a different account..that is all


I like know in the "they are super cool but i am sure glad they don't really exist" sort of way. I think Halloween is one of those holidays I'll never understand. Most of that is due to my upbringing. You see...Halloween use to be "of the devil" as did rock music, rated R movies, and just about everything else. So i never really dressed up, never went trick or treating..and as a whole don't understand the fascination with the day.

I do however understand the fascination with scary movies! I love scary movies! anything that is deep/dark/disturbing i am totally game for!. With all this said i went to go to see Saw3D last night. I love the saw series because its always had an underlying psychological element to it...not so with this movie. It was blood and guts and more blood and guts without a semblance of plot/meaning. I really hope this is the last in the series...a series with so much promise that really just did not work out.
