Thinking about Sunday

Here are some of my musings about yesterday:

1. The Band and vocals did great! After that Johnny Cash song I am now calling Greg Blasche-Johnny Blash. I don't get to hear real well backstage, but right before I came out, Amanda challenged everyone to sing "you are glorious" and the band and on-stage vocals toned down, it was AWESOME to hear the audience sing.

2. Raising now $660,000 in commitments to finish out our building is pretty dang awesome for a church a little over 1 year old!

3. We have a lot of kids in All Stars and I love it!

4. So many new faces ready to discover Christ and not play church

5. Big response to the Prison Break intro message, I feel this is going to be a good one.

6. I work with the best and most awesome staff and volunteers on the face of the planet!

Can it get any better!

You Move Me

Yes I know that I have not posted in a while. To be honest, the VERGE EFFORT was incredible but draining. I have to say I was blown away on Sunday when the commitment time came, to be honest I was wondering if I and the staff (I made them commit) would be the only ones putting a commitment card in the jars. Then when we could see all the people coming to help us cross the line...I WAS BLOWN AWAY.

Piedmont Church is incredible...I mean incredible. You guys get it and want to see Christ create life change in you and others. That is what church is all about. Not committees, not keeping someone happy, not performing for others, it is about helping people to have their life changed in a real and radical way.

Thank you to each of you. Thank you for your commitment, for renewing my passion for church, for loving this city, and for putting Christ ahead of everything in your life. You move me.
