Easter 2008

This was an Easter to remember. We had SNOW on Saturday, techno music, glow sticks, fantastic media - all pointing to our Savior, Jesus. Mark Beeson, challenged us to go VIRAL with our faith. Where the expectation goes beyond "each person telling one" to "each person telling EVERYONE." This is the heart of our church especially as we move into becoming "one church where you are."

I'm amazed at how our teams delivered excellence with servant hearts. For this I am proud and thankful.
Here was the set list:
Prelude: Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger - Daft Punk
Worship: Song of Hope - Robbie Seay Band
Worship: Marvelous Light - Charlie Hall
Special: Hope for the Hopeless - A Fine Frenzy
Light Medley: Coming Out of the Dark(Gloria Estefan), This Little Light of Mine, Shine (Collective Soul), In the Light (DC Talk), I Saw the Light (David Crowder), King with a Crown (Matisyahu), Go Light Your World (Kathy Troccoli)

You can view the service HERE.

I have to give major props to our men of media who delivered BIG TIME!

First, Ben Sanders:

Ben was able to take critique from 30 people, make 20 revisions, and still keep his head and show Christ. Nice work. Ben made the Simon video in the middle of the service and edited the video for our prelude.

Next, Albert Martin:

He made the video that followed our worship time. Beautifully artistic. Many comments about how it brought people to tears. This had my daughter Anna in it. I am so proud of her work, it makes me crazy! It was a rare and beautiful moment to have my daughter singing behind me in a media and then switch to have my wife singing in front of me live. An experience I won't soon forget. The song, "Hope for the Hopeless", by A Fine Frezy is a must listen if you haven't already heard it.

This was a fun photo from our Daft Punk prelude:

I'm starting to understand why the writers went on strike . . . where's the love? (Kidding, of course!)
