Church Yesterday

We were back at Cornerstone yesterday. I got to do the welcome and announcements and body life part of the service. I’m pretty comfortable in front of large groups when I’m teaching, but I really don’t like doing announcements. I’m just not a people person.

Of course, there were a few minor technical difficulties. Our long video snake to the projector didn’t work. That means a solder joint probably broke in the connector. I fixed it once last year, but it was a serious pain in the #%$. Anyway, I think Satan has a special legion of demons that live in cables and computers. We managed to use a short cable, but I had to sit behind the screen to run the projector. I felt like the wizard in the Wizard of Oz. And then, I hit a bug in our worship presentation software, Easyworship. It has been a great program for us. It’s easy to use and very powerful. I like MediaShout, but Easyworship blows it away for ease of use. But yesterday, I hit a bug right when Galen was in the middle of a long Scripture passage. I’ll report it and see what happens. Galen did have a good message on our freedom from the bondage of sin. So hopefully, the technology wasn’t a distraction

Anyway, church was a little low on attendance yesterday. Not sure quite why, but we have been up and down a lot lately. We have some pretty important meetings this week about the structure and direction of our church. Some serious stuff to decide, but good.
