Yes, I know, I've been sparse around here lately...
My extra time has been going towards a few different projects...mostly the redesign of our church website: http://www.memorialdrive.org/ Check it out! There's plenty more work to be done there, but it's a good start.
My thanks to Melvin Fox for all of his hard work in figuring out how the web design program worked (and in turn training me) and in setting up the basic structure for the site. If it weren't for Melvin, that project would still be in a holding pattern.
As a part of the new site, each of our ministers has a blog, so I'll now have two blogs to keep up with. I'm planning to post there every Friday with thoughts that will prepare us for our Sunday time together.
A couple of weeks ago was spent concentrating on creating a vocal arrangement of the Casting Crowns song "Voice of Truth" for our praise team to sing on Senior Sunday to encourage and challenge our high school graduates. I've been wanting to do that song for years.
I really need to get it into gear and finish pre-production work for our upcoming praise team cd, "Brand New - Songs to Start Life Over" which is scheduled to be recorded in late June. I'm excited about the potential of this cd finding it's way into the hands (and cd players) of those who need to hear a message of hope. Lord willing, it should be released this fall.
Jason Thornton and I are pouring ourselves into the direction of next year's Tulsa Workshop. This is such a big event...so many details to be attended to for the benefit of our thousands of guests. It is an incredible pleasure to work on, but it doesn't come together overnight. We meet weekly, and leave our meeting with more tasks to be accomplished. I admire Terry and Marvin more and more for their years of directing this event.
The office decorating project is nearing completion. I am still awaiting my full size OSU football helmet, need to frame and hang a couple of pictures, and finally sort through and organize my back wall. When complete, I'll post some pictures so you can laugh at my OSU fetish.
May God bless the projects you are working on this week. Care to share what they are, so we can be excited with you?
