This Weekend

Some awesome things are falling into place for Compass. Visit Johnny's blog to read about some of the most recent updates.
We are kicking off services in the new Roanoke Recreation Center this Sunday at 10:30. It's going to be great! We worked all last weekend getting things ready, and the preparations aren't done yet. We're starting a series on Marriage this weekend called "Love Revisited". If you are a newlywed, not-so-newlywed or even a not-yet-wed, this series will be one you won't want to miss. Check out www.compasswired.com for more info on the messages within the series. I'm really excited about it! Hope to see you there!!!

Don't make fun. I had to add a pic in order to add it to my profile. I'm sure there was a faster and easier way to do it - but I prefer slow and difficult. So - ignore the picture. Posted by Picasa

Countdown to the "Big Day"

Well, it's almost here...the "Big Day". I'll be 25 years old next Friday - and I can't wait!! I LOVE birthdays! I LOVE birthday parties! I LOVE friends and food and presents! Everybody does - not everyone admits it, though. My dad says I'll be a quarter of a century old - that actually sounds OLD. I'd like to say that I have some important wisdom for you - and maybe I could muster up a few small things - but mostly I still feel like there is SO much to discover and to learn. I feel like life is just beginning - and I LOVE it! I couldn't ask for a better life situation. I have an incredible husband, adorable daughter, the best family, and friends that I don't know what I would do without. Life is good ... and getting better all the time! Hopefully there is a party in my very near future...I'll keep you updated.

A Dose of Perspective

I read a post by Tally Wilgis just now that I couldn't keep from sharing with you. Check it out here. It's all about his observations during a visit to another church. The best part is at the end...

"Each week when Christians and Selfians collide... someone WILL BE uncomfortable. Why is it that the Christians want to make the Selfians uncomfortable? Why can't the Christians say "If someone has to be uncomfortable in this transaction, let it be us. I'm okay with letting my saved family do church in a theater with beer ads all around." The way those beer ads hit many church goers is the same way a stained glass window, a tie, or hymnals hits the Selfians. If I KNOW there will be SOMEONE uncomfortable... I want it to be our church members and attendees. Let it be me! If it will allow my selfian friend to see Christ in his own context... so be it."

Good stuff - right?

I should do an honorable mention category to put my other 300 favorite bands into - but that would make this post WAY to long!
