preservice update

getting close to the start. here's some pics from the scene around the river center just about an hour before the start.


having a little trouble with the stage-left screen projector. actually a lot of trouble. argh.


worship team warming up...


we've even got protesters outside to complete the feel. pray for them. there's gotta be a better place they could be on easter sunday morning. i'm sure they are trying to do what they think is best, but....

anyway, pastor dino says he's feelin' great - ready to roll. "i wish it was 10:00 now." the nurseries are filling up - and they're huge. the kids' room is looking great.

countdown clock is at 35 minutes now. we're just tweaking stuff, waiting and praying God does all He wants to do through us and in us today....

Dan,

I go out to free speech alley at LSU on Wednesdays and have seen these people with Consuming Fire Ministries. Though they speak Biblical verses and truth the attitude seems to be one of hate as opposed to love. They constantly challenge the listener(which are few)to a position of argument with "in your face" words of judgment and hell. It is sad. But their style has opened the door for the crowds that hate their message to listen to the grace of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. You can present sin, righteousness and judgment to come without calling people names and do it in a way that brings sinners to the knowledge that their sin is personal without purposely making people mad at you. This group, however, believes that if they hate the message as well as the messenger then they must be doing it right. They could be so much more effective. We need to pray for them.
