This just in …

According to a recent AP report, “maritime pirate attacks worldwide shot up 14 percent in the first nine months of 2007 from a year earlier.” Mua ha ha … ah … ahem. Nevermind.

According to Koala Wallop (I don’t know), December 8th is “Pretend to be a Time Traveler Day.” Suggestions are available on the forum. Sounds hilarious.

If you ignored me a couple weeks ago when I told you to watch the sessions from GCC’s Innovate 2007 conference, stop it. Here’s the link to the list again: link to the list. Rob Wegner is talking about Transferring Communication on the other half of my screen right now and it’s wonderful.

A church in TN is suffering backlash for a red hot marketing campaign. Video. We could get some discussion going on that; watch the video and let us know what you think. Effective marketing, or did they go too far? I’m with the church, personally, and if I weren’t overflowing with the love of Christ I’d like to hand a piece of my mind to the community member who doesn’t think churches should spend money on marketing. *grits teeth* Overflowing with the love of Christ …

So there’s some fun for your Wednesday morning. (Subliminal: Watch the Innovate sessions.)

    Are the community members absolutly oblivious to the actual things they should be “censoring” from their kids? With all the easily accessible pornography out there and the soft-porn that shows up EVERYWHERE you go (i can walk to class and point out examples of it, or go through a check out at the grocery store, or drive down a highway…ugh, you get my point) why are they throwing a fit over the churches choice of advertising? I’m sure the seats were filled more than if the envelopes said “Getting Christ back in your Marriage.” …the church probably reached more people that way than not.

    Besides, if you are keeping your children in such a bubble that they haven’t noticed all the sex related propaganda out there, wouldn’t you rather talk to your child, teen, whoever.. about sex and the way it’s created to be rather than simply saying, “What you see on that magazine cover is wrong.” or “no sweetheart, we can’t watch that movie, it’s bad” [or insert your own example].. That is just pointing out don’t do that..but this would give an oportunity of explaining sex the way God meant it to be.

    It’s about time the church stops doing what people expect, which I believe is nothing. Most people don’t expect churches to do anything except be a place to go on Sunday morning. It’s about time that churches gain attention in their communities for being real…and if that means causing some controversy, then go for it.
