Christmas Services…a media person’s time to shine

Feeling the Holy Hangover yet?  The “coming down” from the spiritual high of Seasonal Church Production takes it’s toll.  The blown fuses, the burned out lights, the protools glitch, the hanging live satellite feeds, the audio crisis’…. all in a days work in the AV booth right?   And it’s always amazing to me to see the spirit in the air around Christmas.  This video pretty much nutshell’s this past weekend for me.  I can’t seem to get it out of my head, which is a good thing, I guess.  This week, at our church campus, we saw 15 accept Christ for the first time, and we reached our “high water mark”, for attendance.  Read more about it HERE.   My senior pastor, Craig Groeschel started off by saying Merry Christmas and Happy Easter.   Referring to CEO Christians as those that come to church only on Christmas and Easter.  This made me laugh, and think at the same time.  How many people only come to church during these two Sundays, and why?  It also made me think of the intentionality we need to have in service planning and execution for these events.  We should put our best foot forward, with excellence.  How does this translate?   We plan for months on end for 2 Holidays, but what about the other 50 weeks in the year?  As we reflect on the year that is coming to an end, and vision the future year ahead of us, what do you want to see God do in your life, and in your church for 2008?  May this be the best year yet….
