CECWorship Stickfessional

October 14, 2007 — 18 Comments

So Last week there was a little contrversy. Who started the term textfessional? some say it was Jeremy..othes say connor…and some still say I did.
I was thinking about it and decided I didnt worry about it much but I don’t want to be known as a non-innovator.

So without further ado….here is the first ever STICK-FESSIONAL. Crude as it may be…it’s never been done…somethings take time

SIDE NOTE: first panel says “hmm where is everybody…They all seemed to come late..because the place kept filling up even after first few songs.

Great set this week. the congregation was really into it. I think things are really changing in the quality of our worship. Idont mean with guitars, I mean spiritually. It was a tough morning with screaming kids etc. and it was another week I had to be in the church. This weeks struggle with just having theability to focus on something other than life. I think it was During Center where I just stood there and focused on HIM.

Oh course we did you amaze me. That song is brilliant. and So is nothing without you. If you read all the lyrics the the songs…I is plain to see that God was trying to teach us to keep our minds on Him…to focus our attention and our being to him.

10th Anniversary

October 12, 2007 — 14 Comments

It has been 10 years with this wonderful woman as of yesterday. Kelly is my life and I have been honored and more than blessed having her as my wife. I tell her all the time that I thank God I didn’t get stuck with an ugly wife because There isnt a time when I am not thinking about how great it is just to look at her. These last 10 years have been amazing. We have been through some good times and tough  times and God is always faithful. She is an amazing mom, friend, wife and beauty. I can’t wait for the next 10 years. Our crew is getting bigger in the next few weeks. She is due with our third kid (dont know boy or girl) on Oct 28th. So any day now.

I dont know what I would do without my wife. I got married at 20 and she was 24. This has been the best ride of my life and we have the best kids ever. (Tristan age 6, Collin age 2.5 and ?.)

IONA: 1988-present

Iona is a celtic band straight of of Ireland. They didn’t really have much notoriety untilThe time when Celtic music started becoming mainstream thanks to things like Braveheart and Enya. What sets Iona apart from the likes of Enya, The Coors, Clanaad? This band is a Christian band. They have amazing lyrics and love the Lord.They have the traditional Celtic style music with the pipes and hand drums, but they add a new flair to it. Progressive Rock. Think the technicality of Dream Theater then mix in the vocals of a more powerful Enya and throw in a some Out of the Grey. I Got to see this band only once and it stands out as one of the top 5 shows I have ever been to. Go listen and then buy everything. This band is brilliant. The Vocals are amazing. The guitar work is virtuoso with a mix of the edge and satriani. Tehn add in all of the Irish stuff and it blows your mind.
