Sunday Life Pointe Talk Soup

It’s Sunday afternoon, and that means it’s time for the Life Pointe Talk Soup (intro stolen from Chris Day).

  • Pastor Travis, Jesse and Alex Santoyo, and Matt Izaguirre came home from Cambodia/Tennessee this week, and made their return to Life Pointe Church this weekend starting yesterday at the baptism/picnic.
  • We saw 6 baptized at the Homestead Bayfront Park yesterday afternoon in the chilly wind and rain.  The sun came out for the picnic, though, but so did the “noseeums”.
  • This morning I got to the theater and could not find the Roland keyboard; Zech had turned off his phone last night so he didn’t get the message that the keyboard needed to be retrieved from Plantation Key.
  • I used Jesse’s famous Saturn Project Casio Privia instead.  I had to run to my house to get the extra keyboard stand.
  • Music rocked this morning.  Jesse was on the rhythm guitar and lead vocals, Josiah played electric guitar lead, Matt was on the bass, Alex “The Beat Machine” was on the drums, I played keys and back up vox, Julie sang back up as well.
  • We sang “Pride (In the Name of Love)”, “Your Grace is Enough”, and my favorite “Your Love is Amazing”.  For communion we sang “Beautiful”.
  • The message was another installment of the New Testament Challenge, the Challenge of Obedience.
  • Trav showed pictures and recounted his experience in Cambodia, including his (along with Matt and Alex’s) encounter with a pinoy (a rotten boiled egg), a balut (a fully developed duck fetus in the egg), a beetle, and crickets for dinner.  NASTY.
  • He also shared what the Anthems for a Broken World project has been and will continue accomplishing through their combined efforts with the People for Care and Learning in the impoverished dumps of Cambodia.
  • Jesse, Alex, and the Saturn Project laid it all on the line for the cause of Christ, giving 10 years of song writing and musical efforts to help bring clean drinking water and a real home to hundreds of the most impoverished people in the world.  God will bless them for their sacrifice!  I am proud to call them friends.
  • I bought two of the Anthems CD’s and I will give one as a gift.  Also, I am doing everything I can to encourage other people to buy the album and help save someone’s life and soul.  You can find out more by visiting The Saturn Project’s website, and you can purchase this amazing music there as well.

Free Thoughts

-Thursday is the day I post my thoughts. It’s pretty simple, I just type whatever pops in my head.

-The shooting at Wal Mart yesterday was all the talk yesterday at work. Apparently an angry boyfriend walked into the garden center and shot his former girlfriend who had just taken out a restraining order against him. He then fled to his home where he shot himself.

-The stock market doesn’t seem to like the US move toward socialism. Our economy was sick under President Bush, Obama apparently wants to finish it off.

-Hurricane season is just around the corner. I think I am going to start getting my supplies together now. Be prepared!

-Only 2 months since football season has ended, and I am having withdrawals. I hate football offseason. The Dolphins and Canes have a lot to look forward to this year.

-We are going to be even more organized in this year’s fantasy football season.

-The major football related news right now is the boat with the NFL players and agent whose 21 foot boat capsized in the Gulf of Mexico in up to 15 foot seas. Friends of mine suggested that probably they plowed the nose of the boat into a large wave going too fast while rushing to get in, or they got sideways and were flipped by a big wave.

-Max had his little bit of masculinity removed this past Friday. It’s not bad enough that everybody mistakes him for a her, now he has been altered. Poor fella.

-My vacation cruise is exactly one month away from today. Snorkeling, hiking, and relaxing here we come.

-Marcela really hooked me up on Sunday. She made some excellent paella mixta with chicken, chorizo, octopus, little necks, muscles, shrimp, and scallops.

-I have said it before and I’ll say it again, I cannot wait for the TSP Anthems CD to be available.

-The work that Trav, the guys from TSP and the People for Care and Learning are doing for the people of Cambodia is God’s work. I’m so proud of them.

-I will see some of you this Sunday at the theater as we come together to worship, enjoy and learn from each other, be inspired, and be the church.
