L to R: Blurry Ashley, Lane, David, Jaime, Shane, and me

I should have posted this last week, but yes, I am lazy. And I have been very busy too, with school starting this week. However, Shane posted this on his blog (link to left), taken at our dress rehearsal for the Broken Vessels worship service last Friday night. It went very well, and now people are asking me if we can do it every month (though they're unaware of just how much work went into that one!) I think I'd like to do another, but perhaps not every month. If it is a ministry which does not detract people from going to church, and really ministers to them, I'd be willing to consider it.

In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed
-Ge 22:18

Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!
-Psalm 46:10

All the ends of the world Shall remember and turn to the Lord, And all the families of the nations Shall worship before You. For the kingdom is the Lord's, And He rules over the nations. All the prosperous of the earth Shall eat and worship
-Psalm 22:27-29

1 God be merciful to us and bless us, And cause His face to shine upon us. 2 That Your way may be known on earth, Your salvation among all nations. 3 Let the peoples praise You, O God; Let all the peoples praise You. 4 Oh, let the nations be glad and sing for joy! For You shall judge the people righteously, And govern the nations on earth. 5 Let the peoples praise You, O God; Let all the peoples praise You. 6 Then the earth shall yield her increase; God, our own God, shall bless us. 7 God shall bless us, And all the ends of the earth shall fear Him.
-Psalm 67

All nations whom You have made Shall come and worship before You, O Lord, And shall glorify Your name.
-Psalm 86:9

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
-John 3:16

For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh, that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
-Romans 8:3-4

"Well, just in case you missed the news, researchers at Berkeley have recently released the findings of a study that defines the psychological makeup of political conservatives. It's not pretty. After culling through "50 years of research literature about the psychology of conservatism," the researchers have decided that we are paranoid nuts who are infatuated with inequality. But, as the university's press release [see the release] states: "They also stressed that their findings are not judgmental." Of course, those who think this claim is silly are paranoid nuts. So there."
