P.S. Name Change

In case you were wondering, yes I have changed Dana's middle name from Anthony to Louise. I felt it was appropriate and dignified and added a little something extra special to his name. I am now working on having it legally changed. Wish me luck.

In Defense of Dana King and "The Seraphim"

Ladies and Gentlemen, my client, Dana Louise King Jr. is not what you would call a great dancer, I wouldn't even call him a good dancer. He isn't known to "cut a rug" or "get down and boogy." Actually I would say that it is down right embarrassing to watch him dance. How could someone with so much musical talent move without as much as a hint of grace? These are questions we will have to wait until we get to heaven to have answered.

But despite his lack of gracefulness, his ability to sway to and fro smoothly, or to jive to even the funkiest of beats. Does that mean that he must completely stop dancing altogether. Most of you who have seen him dance will in no doubt come to the conclusion of "Yes, he must stop dancing." But you don't know the whole story. Little known fact, Dana has always dreamed of being a professional dancer. Every day that goes by that dream fades a little bit. Sometimes when he's watching dancing with the sta…

The Fictitious Fallacy Of False Teachers

My first baptism was here at Northeast. I will never forget it. Not because it was so wonderful, the heavens opened up and the Holy Spirit descended like a dove. He didn’t immediately come out of the water and begin speaking in tongues. Nothing cool like that happened. The reason why I remember it so well was because a frantic individual pulled aside after the baptism and began to ask me what I said when I baptized the young man or did I say anything. Mind you this was my first time baptizing someone, I was really nervous, so I decided that just to be safe I should write out everything I was going to say and put it on the inside wall of the baptistery. I pulled of the little piece of paper and handed it to him and said “this is what I said.” It went like this…

“Upon your confession of faith, I now baptize you in the name of the father, and the son, and the holy spirit, for the forgiveness of your sins and the gift of the Holy Spirit.”

That is what I said, and by the way I say th…

"Hallelujah"

This is Phil Wickham covering the song "Hallelujah" in his hotel room. This guy is awesome. "Hallelujah" has to be one of my favorite songs in the whole world (I just have a hard time singing it).

Special Announcement!!!

Over the last few years I have been praying for a service that would reach out to a younger generation that is being looked over. I just finished a book recently entitled "UnChristian." Its about the image problem that Christians have, this conclusion was made through research done by the Barna Group about how people outside the church see Christians. The results are very sad. The bottom line is that 18-30 don't want to go to church and don't want a relationship with God because they see Christians as too judgmental, hateful, stuck-up, and uncaring (just to name a few).

In response to prayer, new insight, and planning I am excited to say that we will be starting a new service called "Connections" on Sunday nights that will be geared to reach a younger generation. There are too many young adults that are not connected to God. Our mission will be to "connect with the unconnected."

Our first service will be in September. We are calling this a …
