Good idea. You have enough blogging material to last you the rest of the year now. And all these people will wanna hear it. Smart you are my friend. Here’s a few more:
a) Can I have some free drum loops to sample and try at our church from North Point?
b) What does the training/execution of your host teams look like at Buckhead?
c) Why is there braille on drive up ATM’s?
d) What is the actual definition and role of holy spirit baptism and when does it happen in the life of a Christ-follower? How does one know they have received it? (A slightly controversial one that might dip into that 14yr degree there.)
a – I don’t know. I work at Buckhead.
b – From what I have seen it is boot camp. They have an amazing orientation system that takes them from recruit to team captain. There are over 600 of them, I think, on our team. And they DOMINATE on Sundays. You can check our more about our amazing host teams at Buckhead church at the host team blog.
c – Drive-up ATM buttons are marked with braille because federal regulations require it. To be specific, section 4.34.4 of the ADA Accessibility Guidelines for Buildings and Facilities (Appendix to Part 1191, 36 CFR Chapter XI, issued pursuant to the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990) says, “Instructions and all information for use [of an automated teller machine] shall be made accessible to and independently usable by persons with vision impairments.” Drive-up ATMs, unlike the walk-up variety, don’t need to be wheelchair accessible, but the rules make no exception regarding accessibility by the blind.
d- Two schools of thought. One, it happened then and then only. This was the baptism that was nesesarry for all Christ followers from that point on. Two, It happens to a person when they accept Christ. Therefore synonymous with salvation.
My thoughts? I get baptized every morning, noon, and night. Right out of a hotel shampoo bottle. (That was for you OLD SCHOOL RAGAMUFFIN READERS!!!)

hey los! (something I struggle with)
how do you balance the “I’ve got so much stuff to do to get ready for Sunday”
with the “I really need to be out from behind my macbook and building relationships with people”?
Simple. We both know that the “work” will never end. Right?
So if I spend all my time getting everything ready for Sunday behind my MacBook Pro, which can be done, then by the time Sunday rolls around, it LOOKS great yet NOONE knows me. And at that point I have failed far worse than it looking like crap and everyone knowing that I had a really #$! week so they are praying for me.

Who do you think will win the get to the Superbowl, and then who do think will win it?
Who do you think is the best blogger out there in the cyber world?
– Giants. I am a lover not a fighter. I always root for the underdog. It just feels better.
– Me. Of’Course. But besides me, I like Seth Godin.
