has it been a week since i last posted? wow.
well. this last weekend was quite busy. it started friday. velocity decided to do the 30 Hour Famine that world vision hosts. me and 35 other velocity staff and students started fasting around 7:00a on friday. we got together, had some worship, played some games, slept at the church, served in detroit, then ended the fast at 1:00p saturday afternoon. thanks to anne gardner we had a kickin’ “traditional” african meal. overall we raised over $4,000 for world vision to help feed kids in africa.
then came velocity.
i gave the talk on “who do you say jesus is?” it was based off of peter’s confession in matthew 16:15 – “You are the Christ, son of the living God.”
for a creative element, we had two students spray paint both positive and negative views of jesus on to a large piece of muslin fabric (see pic) … after the talk, the band did three worship songs from behind the fabric…it was a powerful night of confession and worship of who jesus is.
