This week we showed a video of a story of a dear family of ours, the Colbert's. I'll have a video link for you soon.
In the meantime... random statements, thoughts of the weekend...
"Christ has become the YES to all of God's promises" - Jason Koeppe quoting Piper in the green room
"Western Reserve- you ready to get dirty?" - Larzell, MC of the weekend discussing the upcoming Love. Series
"What if Snoop Dogg did video announcements? Western Reserve, fo' shizzle" - Brian McMahon
"Where did you get this music for this video from?" (Jason Koeppe to Chris) "Iceland." - Chris
"If you're not daring to believe God for the impossible, you're sleeping through some of the best parts of your Christian life. If the size of your vision for your life isn't intimidating to you, there's a good chance it's insulting to God." - Josh to the band before church, quoting Steven Furtick's Sun Stand Still
Bethany bringing little Vera to church for the first time. Good looking kid. I'm scared of holding her... I think she's going to make me soon.
General talk in the green room: "so many of us guys married up (conversation starting because Michelle was talking about Marcie being pretty and pretty wonderful. Chris: sometimes it works in reverse, look at Bethany and me."
"Cue Superfly." Josh, in band/tech run-through indicating when Larzell comes out.

"What does God have in mind today? Let's go around- pray a short prayer, ask something specific. Ask God for one thing that He's laid on your heart." - Josh
Abbey. Wow. Jim, Shelley, the kids, extended family... words aren't enough for how wonderful of people they are.
"These Doctors, nurses... you just don't know how amazing they are. They are 100% family to the Colbert's." - Chris
"You can see contentment through their pain. Their faith through pain... amazing." Jason Koeppe/Michelle
"I would take this for her. God, give it to me instead." Jim Colbert
Josh- you drank an electric blueberry lemonade in Lakewood. You're a brave fella.
