Sunday Life Pointe Talk Soup

  • This will be a short Sunday Talk Soup post.
  • This morning we had two speakers continuing the New Testament challenge.
  • Mark Similey spoke in the 9:00 AM service, and my dad JT spoke in the 10:30 AM service.
  • The topic was forgiveness.  Forgiven people forgive people.
  • Jesus said 7 times was not enough, but 7 times 70, that’s 490 times.
  • Among the Thirsty led worship.  They did an amazing job.  It was the best guest band praise and worship I have heard at LPC.
  • The best thing about their worship set was the way they really led LPC in corporate worship.  The music was awesome, but their attitude of worship was even better.
  • All four of the band members had a heart for God, and it shined through not only in worship, but after the service while they were breaking down.
  • I will see some of you guys tonight at Plantation Key for the evening service.  TTFN! (Ta Ta For Now)

Sunday Life Pointe Talk Soup

  • Day 15 of bachelorhood was spent at church.
  • I arrived 7:45 at the theater to find set up in full swing.
  • I saw David out on the street setting up signs and flags again, and the early set up folks were kicking it off, and the late night crew already had the core of the pier 2 set up completed.  Those guys are awesome.
  • In practice, we talked about having dueling drums, but there was only one set on the floor when I set up.  Alex came in a little later and let me know that I would need to relocate so he could set up his two-piece trap.  The forced relocation, along with the keyboard played by Rebecca on the other side landed me on stage beside Jesse.  I made it to the spotlight!
  • On drums, Ritz played electric with Alex on his two-piece.  The acoustic sound was great and I already have confirmation that it will be returning.  Rebecca Longtemps was on the keys, Jesse on the acoustic guitar, and I was on the bass.
  • For the worship set, we sang “In the Name of Love” by U2, “Your Love is Amazing” (1030 only), “Better Days”, and “Say So”.  For communion we sang “Mighty to Save“.
  • I loved corporate worship today.  People were participating, and the atmosphere seemed totally energized.  God and his love was totally the focus, and it was so cool to see people excited for Jesus.
  • While people greeted each other, Kyle spit some serious rhymes!  That’s right, Rappers Delight, it was tight!
  • The intro video was the best to date.  I especially liked Joe Porter’s smirk while he was being beaten to a pulp.  It’s funny to see all the recurring characters too.
  • Got Funk? The message was on conflict.  Pastor Trav explained that the Apostle Paul did not run from conflict, that he actually called out Peter in front of the church for requiring unnecessary requirements on new believers. The question is not how to avoid conflict, but how to manage it in a Godly fashion.
  • I enjoyed seeing new faces once again, meeting new people, and seeing old friends for the first time in a while.

Life Pointe Sunday Talk Soup – 4/27/08

  • I got to the theater a shade before 8 AM. Jesse, Alex, and Bill were already there and things were ready to go.
  • Jesse led us in music this morning and Alex played drums this week. Outstanding work Alex. We sang “Friend of God“, “In The Secret” and “Better Days”. For communion we sang the U2 song “All I Want Is You” and “Your Love Oh Lord“.
  • Bill joked that we learned something today: that every that can be sung song segues to a U2 song, and Alex will figure out which one.
  • Once again, the 1030 service was jumping. No offense to the 9. The 9 has been slamming before, but the 1030 has been on a roll!
  • I really had a blas worshipping with my LPC homies this morning. Church Rocks!
  • Trav spoke on the series “Simply Jesus” again. The question today was “Why is Jesus a superior Savior to other all other religions’ saviors?
  • Scripture was presented which stated that Jesus was the only way, and this in the world’s eye is bigoted.
  • Budism says there are 84,000 paths to salvation
  • Best point of the day from my point of view was the analogy of a man drowning. The drowning man does not need someone standing over him saying there are 84,000 ways to be saved. He wants the one man who can save him to reach down and pull him out.
  • Tom Cruise was referrenced a couple times, and Trav said he is happy enough just seeing Tom jumping around on a couch on Oprah.
  • The sound system tweaks and permanent installation have really paid off.
  • I believe this is the first time my blog was referrenced in service. He mentioned my Top 5 post and specifically quoted the redneck saying “Would ya please pass the jelly?
  • Make sure you get your salad to go with your soup!
