Long time no post…

I am sorry that I haven’t posted in a couple of days… I have been very busy with the new job and church…

I do have some good posts but I just need to sit down and write them out…

I recently got a new cell phone (1st – Mogul 6800; 2nd (Final) – Palm 755p)…

I recently had 2 friends get the iPhone and they have mixed reviews…

I also started using some new technology like Brightcove.com and YouTube Developer…

I will post more later…

The stage is finished!!!

It was actually finished on Sunday morning at 8:46 AM (14 minutes before service)… 

Here are some pictures of the final stage…

I think it looks great…

BEFORE:

AFTER:

A very very very long week…

WOW!!! This last week was very long… My teams and me have accomplished so much this week…

Here’s what we accomplished this week:

Total Stage Changeover (Photos coming soon…) (Thanks Stage Team!!!)

Transformers Promo (Thanks Video Producers!!!)

Men’s Fraternity Promo (Thanks Video Producers!!!)

Officially launched the new HighImpact Living Website (www.highimpactliving.net)

Implemented a new Tech. Leader for our South Side Campus (Trevor D. – Thanks for helping out)

ONE GREAT VISION DAY (Thanks everyone for your help)

I know that it is the services like this morning that make it totally worth it… I think this morning’s service was great… I really love what I get to do in the local church…

“The local church is the hope of the world” – Bill Hybels

That quote is a great quote to remember on weeks like this one… It has been totally crazy but I know that we impacted peoples’ lives this morning and I know that this church will continue to impact peoples’ lives…

I look forward to a more normal week this week but I still have one more service (which we are currently doing right now)…

“Eh-Hee” and huh????

So I was recently reading one of my blogging friends blogs and he mentioned a free download on iTunes… I immediately jumped on it because it was free and Dave Matthews… After downloading it I watched it…

I thought some of his lyrics were very interesting but was kind of disturbed by the video…

Here’s the lyrics (I bolded the interesting parts):

Father gone and I’m heading
It’s a bold side of it again
When you decide to go to him
And the people toasting away
And the people all sitting there, c’mon

Everybody gonna come on in
Like, like c’mon in, yeah, yeah
Everybody gonna come on in
Y’all it’s you wanna c’mon, sir

Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh

Praise God who has many names
The devil have many more
With the love that my mother gave me
I’m gonna drop the devil to the floor

I’m gonna drop the devil to his knees
I’m gonna drop the devil to his knees

Sweet evolution how people have come to believe
That we are it’s greatest achievement
We’re barely, we’re just a collection of cells
Overrating themselves
Oh God I’m avoiding the
(Is Dave saying he is avoiding God???)

Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana

Walking along in this haze of confusion
Sometimes I collect, sometimes it takes all of my strength
Just to find enough reason to take the next step, step
But I will, but I will, till I do
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana

Praise God who has many names
The devil have many more
With the love that my mother gave me
I’m gonna drop the devil to the floor

I’m gonna drop the devil to his knees
I’m gonna drop the devil to his knees

Strange evolution how people have come to believe
That we are it’s greatest achievement
We’re barely, we’re just a collection of cells
Overrating themselves
Hello God I’m avoiding the truth
(Is Dave saying he is avoiding the Bible???)

Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana

Drop the devil to his knees
I’m gonna drop the devil to his knees
I’m gonna drop the devil to his knees
I’m gonna drop the devil to his knees

Brother, sister
Brother, sister
Brother, sister
Brother, sister
Praise

I am still very confused at what Dave Matthews is trying to get across here… I like some of his lyrics but some are making me wonder “Is Dave Matthews seeking God?”… I am going to pray that Dave Matthews finds God and seeks the truth… I hope that someone in his direct path can lead him that way…

Here’s the link to download “Eh Hee” Music Video Free on iTunes (NOTE: The video is marked “EXPLICIT” due to a couple of curse words. I in no way support that kind of language.)… Download the video and let me know what you think…

Well sorry this is late but here’s the GACC Drama Video from September 2.

Great job to everyone on this project (Drama, Field Production, and Post-Production Teams) and a special thank-you to Rebecca Phillips for being our “Comedy/Acting Director” for the evening…

Stage Update 2

It’s day 3 (Tuesday) of the stage move and here’s your latest update on the stage move… I think I am going to post these photos and maybe one more set but I don’t want to give away the entire look until after Sunday…

I think this maybe one of the coolest stage configurations we have done… I can’t wait to get to the end product… Let me know your thoughts…
