Merry Christmas again!

You have to know that this movie is a team effort. It’s the whole church
that makes the movie. Without our people and their willingness to serve, none of
this would be possible. Without their willingness to buy into the vision of
“Changing the world from Albany, Georgia,” we wouldn’t be in the movie business. I’m grateful to pastor a church that will think outside the box.

Sun-Drop Bottling Co., Inc. was founded in 1947 by Buford White as Nesbitt Spur Bottling Company. In 1961, the charter of the corporation was amended to change the name to Sun-Drop Bottling Co., Inc. reflecting the fact that brand Sun-Drop had become the main product of the company by this time. Today that is still the case with Sun-Drop representing more than 75% of the total beverage sales. The company is the third largest distributor by case volume of Sun-Drop beverages in the United States.

Today's church sign quote is taken from http://www.says-it.com/ where they have a bunch of pictures of real signs. However, they also have a church sign generator like the one in the picture that you can create. There are other types of signs as well. I thought it was pretty cool. Give it a try.

Two youth leader friends of mine, David Jones and Jana Grant produce a radio show called "Get Real" on the local Christian station, WGRC, each week. The youth oriented show airs from 10 - 10:30 PM every Saturday Night. You could listen live via the internet or on a podcast anytime.
This week is the one year anniversary of the show and I would like to congratulate them and wish them well in the years to come.

We had a reservation at 8:45 PM but got there about 8:20 PM. We were done and walking back to our hotel by 9:15 PM! Incredible! They do a nice job and have over 30,000 people go through their event in three weekends. But, the fastest way is to go through line slashers.
The most fun part of the night is watching the girls scream. I have to admit I jump every now and then. But the girls make the night.
I wanted to give my opinion of Logan's Roadhouse. I was a little disappointed? We were there last year and it was fun and the food was good. This year, it was all business and, truthfully, I wasn't too impressed with my steak. The taste was okay, but the cut left something to be desired. I am allowing the less than spectacular service because of the number of people we had (21) and the time we arrived (5:45 PM). However, the steak . . . well, I don't understand.
This doesn't mean I won't go back. The atmosphere was good and the teens loved throwing peanut shells on the floor . . . but you can do that elsewhere. I don't like to be negative, but, well, it was just an okay experience today.

This morning I got up at 5:55 AM, drove to my parents place and walked with my mother and her neighbor. It was the second day in a row that I walked before 7 AM. I missed my partners yesterday because I got up late. We walked for about 35 minutes and my mother and neighbor talked almost the entire time - not that I minded. I did learn about the "blackouts" during the war, that you can loose weight inside your body as well as outside and that Burnham and Newton are planning to merge. The latter is from the local paper. It seems that at the end of walk, George, my mother's neighbor, gets the paper out of the box and reads the headlines each morning. It really was quite enjoyable this morning. In the future, I plan to WALK to my parents place - it isn't that far, for those of you who don't know that. But today, I got up late, so I drove. This new activity is designed to get me a little more active. I really need to do this for my health. And having someone to walk with makes the whole thing easier.

According to www.holidayinsights.com the origins of this day date back to my era:
"The roots of this day go back to the hit 1970's television comedy show "Three's Company". Larry Dallas (played by Richard Kline), one of the characters on the show, declared a Wear Something Gaudy Day."
If you are looking for a gift for the day, I found this site. I am not sure I really endorse it. Use your own judgement.

WELLINGTON, New Zealand --A middle-aged New Zealand woman rang police to report a theft of cannabis plants she had been growing at her North Island home, local media reported. The crying woman told a constable at the police station in the city of Napier the plant theft was the fourth from her property in as many years. The 45-year-old woman, who was not named, lamented someone had again sneaked on to her property at night to steal her three carefully nurtured marijuana plants.
"I am a good person. I am sick of these low-lifes stealing my things," the woman told a police communications officer.
Senior Sergeant Mal Lochrie told local media Friday that the officer found it hard to stop smiling as the women gave details of the theft over the phone.
A community constable who visited her to take details of the theft had also warned her that her horticultural pursuits could have legal consequences, Lochrie said.
Police decided no action would be taken against the gardener, he said.

I have been a colts fan since I was a little boy - when they were the BALTIMORE Colts (and I have to admit that I didn't root for the Colts for about two years after they moved to Indianapolis. I am over it now). I love what Dungy has done for the Colts organization both on the field and off. He has been a great example so far. I pray he continues to keep Christ first in all he does.
Good job Jana!

A comatose man woke up after being asleep for 19 years, to find that his
world had changed beyond all recognition.Polish railway worker Jan Grzebski lost
consciousness in 1988 after being struck by a train. He suffered horrific
injuries when his head was trapped between two carriages.He didn't come out of
his coma until Sunday June 3 2007 when he opened his eyes to see his devoted
wife Gertruda's face looking at him. She cared for him all through his coma.Mr.
Grzebski was given only about two years to live after he slipped into
unconsciousness in 1988 and doctors discovered he had a tumor on his brain.But
he remained in good health due to the tireless efforts of his saintly wife
Gertruda. She fed and washed her husband's motionless body every day and moved
him every hour to prevent bedsore infections.Jan's doctor said she had "done the
job of an entire intensive care team."Her devotion was rewarded when at 65 years
of age Jan came out of his coma. He told members of his family he had vague
memories of family gatherings and relatives talking to him, trying to provoke a

"Worship" vs Worship
A funny thing happened at church yesterday.
My wife has been bringing her friend with her to church for the past couple of weeks. As we launch into the 10x10 vision, we're committed to doing our part as God directs. Part of the way we're reaching out is asking an unchurched friend and her son to visit church. And last week, she accepted Christ!
She was so excited to see my wife this week in church they began talking excitedly together. They were buzzing back and forth during the first song and well into the second. There was talk of Jesus love, baptism and even a few tears. It was a powerful moment - I was moved sitting just down from them seeing a life so dramatically and instantly changed.
But I could tell the woman in front of us was going to blow a gasket.
She looked back once or twice with "those eyes." She looked at her husband a minute later and rolled her eyes. She shrugged to her friends. She even kind of scowled back once, I think trying to use ESP to tell the 'bubblygirls' behind her to be quiet. Finally, near the end of the second song, she just had to say something.
"I'm sorry, but can you guys talk to each other later? I'm trying to worship."
During her "worship" she missed the most beautiful expression of worship ever. Angels were dancing in Heaven and she was ticked on earth.
Now, in her defense, my wife's friend IS loud. She does get a bit excited and I'm sure it was distracting. She doesn't know the "rules" of church and even stopped the offering plate later in the service for an extra 4 minutes to write her check. But isn't that all OK?
Sometimes I like Christians more before they know how to act like Christians.
Why am I so worked up about this? Because I've done it before. As my wife and I talked about it after our post-baptism-celebration lunch, she admitted to doing it, too. Busting someone without knowing the whole story. Getting frustrated without knowing the other half. In fact, I now realize I'm doing that to this lady in front of us, right? Is it possible that this was her last Sunday to live and she is living knowing she's terminally ill? Is it possible she brought her jaded son and daughter-in-law to church for the first time after years of trying - and some jerk behind them is being loud and distracting?
Hmm ... not sure where I'm going with this, other than to say maybe we should loosen up a bit in church. Maybe we should empathize with each other a bit more. And maybe our first reaction to a disruption in the service is that God is up to something, instead of someone being distracting.

The mayor of a Siberian oil town has ordered his bureaucrats to stop using
expressions such as "I don't know" and "I can't." Or look for another job.
Alexander Kuzmin, the 33-year-old mayor of Megion, has banned these and
25 other phrases as a way to make his administration more efficient, his
spokeswoman said Tuesday. "It's a suggestion to the staff that they should think before saying something," Oksana Shestakova said by telephone. "To say `I don't know' is the same as admitting your helplessness."

The secretary here at the church was buzzing a couple of weeks ago. Her eight year old granddaughter, Makenzie McDonald, has been taking gymnastic lessons for a few years and been doing well. So well, in fact, that she qualified for a national event, The State Games of America, at the Air Force Academy in Colorado. Makenzie did very well and came home from the meet with four total medals. She won a second in the vault, and thirds in the floor and bars. She also received a third place medal in all around.
Makenzie has spent time here in the office and is a personable young girl. We here in the office are very proud her and I know that her grandparents are as well. Congratulations Makenzie!
