We’re All In This Together

with 3 comments

Found this video via our worship leader Ashlee’s facebook…

I don’t know about you, but this broke me.

It convicted me.

How much we take for granted.

How much we throw away.

How much we ignore.

What we are doing IS NOT ENOUGH.

It can’t be.

What will you do to make a difference?

Election 2008 – Praying Backwards @

with 2 comments

8 We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. 9 We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed. 10 Through suffering, our bodies continue to share in the death of Jesus so that the life of Jesus may also be seen in our bodies. 11 Yes, we live under constant danger of death because we serve Jesus, so that the life of Jesus will be evident in our dying bodies. 12 So we live in the face of death, but this has resulted in eternal life for you.

2 Corinthians 4:8-12

Tonight over at Los’ held a “Praying Backwards” service.
It was a live video feed on Mogulus.
People from the Northeast United States to the Southwest United States

The prayer was powerful all the way through the evening

The most powerful of the moments came when the McCain voters prayed for Obama, while the Obama voters prayed over McCain.

It was absolutely incredible to see a community that has been torn apart from this election, against God’s will, come together to praise God and pray for all involved regardless of which political party you support. To recognize that we are a nation under God, serving ONE God, loving ONE God, and giving all of we are to HIS will and HIS way.

As we go into the late night of Monday, and head over into Tuesday, Election Day, let’s be steadfast in prayer for our leaders, their families, the voters, and the future of God in this nation.

Let’s end with this video:

Production Team Name/Shirt(s)

with one comment

Okay readers, you get first glimpse and first chance for suggestions on something I’ve been working on.
You get to see these even before Ryan does.

Let me explain…
Recently in a post I asked for suggestions on a name for dialogue’s production team.
Not many of you chimed in, but for those of you who did, thanks!
Anyhow, today in our Monday morning meeting we discussed a way to get the kids of dialogue church more active and taking more ownership in the ministry.
The credit for this idea goes to Kim, our chidrens ministry director.

By allowing them to really take an ownership and have a ministry they can call their own will be huge. The photo is just something quick I pulled together. The shirt should probably be adjusted more for the younger generation.
It’s just an idea.

Anyhow, I also designed one for the adult team.

There they are.
Our production team shirts.
Some of the ideas were taken from other church’s and the design of their production staff shirts.
Let me know what you think, and also any suggestions you might have.
This is anywhere from a finished product(e.g. the color is the wrong color of green).

What’s your opinion? Lay it on me, I can take the truth!

A Thief and A Whore

“You set at the table, with the wounded and the poor. You laugh, and share stories, with the thief and a whore…”

Bethany is obviously talking about Jesus.
He reached out for anyone and everyone who needed His love.
Here’s my question for you….

Production/Setup Team Name

with 4 comments

I would like to ask for all my readers’ help/opinion/advise/creative ideas.
Let me explain…

So here is my big job.
Well, not really a job, but more like my privelege.
I am choosing on a name for our Dialogue Church Production/Setup Team.

Some sweet church’s pick just simple names, using combinations of their church name with the word “production”.
I’m sure other church’s pick creative names and fancy names.
I really have no clue which way to go…or even prefer to go.
Here are some of my ideas…

  • Dialogue Re:set
  • Dialogue Production
  • Dialogue Re:production Team (lol)
  • Dialogue Re:make

    Seriously, that is ALL I have.
    I need help.
    Some opinions/suggestions/ideas.

    This is a part of Creative Chaos over at

    What would you call your production team if you had a choice??

    What to write….

    with one comment

    Tell me readers. (as of late it’s probably turned into a lack-thereof readers)
    What is it that you would like to see me write about.
    Some of you know me. Some of you have gotten to know me. Others of you have no clue about me.
    So tell me this, now knowing a little bit about me after following me for some time, what is it that you want to see me write about.

    It can be anything and I WILL write about it. This is your chance to get to know me.

    What will my next post be about, it’s your decision???
