Vision Awareness Sunday

Today was Vision Awareness Sunday at our church. It's one of the "big deals" that we have every year about this time. Even though it exhausts me, I love it.

Today's production was a parody of Lord of the Rings mixed with a little Wizard of Oz and Pirates of the Caribbean. Here are just some of the things I liked about this year's Vision Awareness blow-out:
  • Clay sounded just like Gollum and was a lot funnier. He's quite the talent.
  • Matt....where did THAT accent come from? It was hilarious!
  • Brent V. deserves a studio contract. He's a great actor.
  • Karin also! Great stage presence.
  • Erik has a great pirate "AARRGGHH!!"
  • Fiona our narrator. She could say anything and sound brilliant. Which is one of her favorite words.
  • Loved the volcano!
  • Brent L. is one of the funniest guys I've ever met. He needs to make a movie.
  • Jonathan and the band were ON...especially for "Waiting for the World to Change."
  • Jason R. - the new UPC guitar god.
  • We have a great sound/media crew...they make everybody look good.
  • The Congregational Life Team worked so hard during the summer to get everything ready for the big day. What a great pleasure to work with them.
Today's production will be hard to top next year!

I'm glad to be part of a church where we can do things like this.
