The Worship Gallery

Rich time on Sunday evening with the Worship Gallery - a series of interactive "exhibits" and an hour of unstructured time to participate. Personal faves included:

  • The Art viewing exhibit - moving powerpoint images of artists down the ages portraying Christ - the guidebook had short explanations so you could get a handle on period, title and artist. Nice.
  • The confession cam - a chance to respond to the events of the evening and share what the experience was like (I couldn't help myself and voted Jacob off the island while I was there)
  • The Art exhibit - this was where you got to play with charcoals and paints and pastels and stuff! I'm no artist but enjoyed creating my own surreal yet highly spiritual (!) pastel work...

Cool time and impacting for people old and new. Definitely need to do it again in another format.

Went to the Parachute Music Festival on Saturday. Couldn't believe the heat! Music was great - saw a variety of bands/artists - Blair Giles Band, Matt Couper, Day of Fire, Rapture Ruckus (!), Alabaster Box, Audio Adrenaline. Here is the fluid intake register: 3 bottles of water, 1 can pepsi, 2 milkshakes, 1 coffee, 2 bottles chocolate milk...I told you it was hot!

Its a public holiday today so I'll take some time out yet catch up on a few outstanding tasks that otherwise won't get done...
