Well said. I especially love #8. Brilliant.
A "casting call" to cast your cares on Him...I love it. Great reminder.

Just read about your upcoming move over on Justin Davis' blog. Man, I'll be praying for you guys. As someone who took a plunge a little over a year ago into the unknown, I know what it feels like. I'm confident that God will guide and direct you. He always gives grace equal to the task He has called you too.

Ok, first of all, hats off you guys for recognizing that not every series or message is created equal and deserves equal promotion. That is a HUGE revelation to most churches. You're doing the right and smart thing to put more time and money into the series that matter most and will get the most people in the door. Second, what a great idea to make your church part of the creative process in choosing a series promo! After all, aren't THEY the ones we will be asking to invite their friends? And making it available to text their vote makes it so easy and quick. I'll be praying for you, your church and this upcoming series. By the way, I would pick Concept A. Clean, simple, eye-catching.

One of my pet peeves is not enough visual imagery. I mean, we're on the Internet in 2008 where just about everyone has broadband. Nobody wants to look at 20 blog posts with 5,000 words and no pictures. Spend a little extra time and find some images that go along with your post (preferably ones that you have taken). There, I'm off my soap box now. That felt good. :-)

Dude, that's awesome. I love it when God just gets a hold of us at random times and overwhelms us with His glory.

Praying for you buddy! This is tough but you never expected smooth sailing when you're stepping out into God's will, did you? :-)

I was wondering if you would give me permission to use the quote "I didn't get to take Jesus into the slums. He was waiting for us." for a 40DayFast wallpaper I'm designing. I think it's very fitting. Also, do you have any good, high-resolution photos you could email me to use for this wallpaper? I may or may not use them depending on the quality but I'd like to if I can. Thanks!

I've been trying to decide if I need to move to something like Bloglines. My list of RSS feeds I subscribe to is growing (including yours of course). You gotta love the kind of technology that allows so many people to share ideas and learn from one another! Brad Ruggles www.bradruggles.com

Absolutely awesome! Congrats to the whole media team for an amazing video. There had to be tons of green screen work for this one! I love the lyrics that were written to go along with this piece. That makes it so much more applicable than just borrowing a pre-written song. Great stuff! Brad Ruggles www.bradruggles.com
