Look back at Sunday's experiences...
- Nate Adams absolutely crushed it on lights this weekend. Not only did he nail his cues and timing, but he creatively made same color-combos that accented color stories in new backgrounds. Without us asking him- he took it to the next level within the scheme he knew we were looking for. LOVE it.
- One of our new female vocalists, Jessica Centorbi- did a fantastic job. Great voice- she had great stage presence already.
- Pastor Marty Dent is a stud. Some people, you just know they are being authentic. It's who they are. When you take risk and step out in faith- your faith is strong because of who it's in. He validates- not others who shoot down our dreams.
- On that- I remember the night I was ordained- a former Pastor approached me afterward, and "complimented" me with this: "Well, I never thought you'd make it as a Pastor. But I guess I take that back now." Like Marty said- "don't kill what makes others come alive. Don't assault another's calling."
- Marty talking about: "passing up excellent opportunities with security for risky ones that provide freedom in life." Great advice.
- Heard great things about the audio mix. Loud and full yet people can "hear themselves singing." The low end of the keys shakes me on the stage- YES. I heard you can hear every member of the band. YES.
- Great having my wonderful friends, Mark and Susan Taylor and family with us. You won't find better people than them. At lunch, Eli kept talking about the children's experience, thing after thing. Eli: "I like your church." That's a win for our City Kids.
- I heard the concentration from the production team was great. They were focused the whole time- no cell phones or distractions- and you could tell the difference. They did a great job.
