Another pile of stuff has accumulated that I wanted to post on my blog but it didn’t make the cut because I didn’t make the time. Why didn’t I make the time? I’ve been crazy busy with CCC, NewThing and family stuff. So why post it now? Cause it was interesting to me. And the assumption of almost every blog is that if it is interesting to me, then it is interesting to someone else out there. So to all of you out there that are interested in the same stuff that I’m interested in, here is a pile of stuff!
- Last week I went to the Mute Math concert at the House of Blues. They were awesome! I saw them last winter with The Fray and they were great then, but even better this time! I think next to U2 (not a fair comparison) they are the best live band I’ve ever experienced. Check out Carter Moss, CCC-Montgomery/Oswego Campus Pastor and concert critic review of the Mute Math concert on IE.
- CCC’s Kirsten Strand who leads our Community 4:12 ministry is also writing for Christianity Today’s Gifted for Leadership. Check out her first article, Following A Tough Call. Way to go Kirsten!
- We are continuing to get great reports from all our NewThing Network churches. Here is Boston’s The Weekly Dig about Reunion Church, Emo For Jesus. Great work Hank!
- Our Christian vs. Christ Follower videos continue to create a stir. In total all four of the videos have been viewed more than a half million times (no typo…more than 500,000 views and that is only on YouTube!). Not everybody is loving these videos…the Montsterreport offers a critique and even posts a rebuttal video…but InFuze is loving them! And if you didn’t get the inside scoop on these videos, blogging guru Todd Rhodes gives it to us in The Making of a Viral Video.
- Another CCC staffer who is getting some attention is Bill Carroll, CCC’s Arts Champion. The Learning Curve asked Bill ten questions. Good job Bill.
- And I forgot to tell you – Caleb’s third grade YMCA boys basketball team that I coach finished the season undefeated! 8-0!
- And as long as we are talking family sports, Amy’s Neuqua Valley High School Lacrosse team just went 2-0 and Amy scored her first goal of the season! Way to go Amy!
And there you have another pile of stuff!
