Alright. New (ish) blog means new posts. I want to start adding pictures and descriptions of what is happening at Kingsway Church (www.kingswaychurch.tv), the church I attend again after 8 years spent in Pittsburgh. It’s quite a bit different than when I left and I’m really pumped about what we’re all accomplishing together.
Right now we’re working with some new toys: Roland M-480, 2 REACs and a slew of M-48s. These have been a blessing and a curse! It’s tough for analog guys to adjust to a digital rig and, conversely, it’s touch to teach guys that understand the digital side how to mix like an analog guy. There will be more posts on that in the future. For now we’re trying to work on dialing in presets and adding more M-48s to the mix. More players means more monitors!
The stage was also redone during the Let’s Build Tomorrow campaign. I will post pictures soon. It allows for some backstage room, but the best way to describe it is “valuable” and “limited.” Amps are now a part of the picture, but we need iso boxes ASAP. And preferably of the stack-able persuasion. We also need to work on the mic situation, but all in time.
For now I’ll be trying to chart our progress and I’ll need people to chime in with suggestions and feedback. We’re going to do Kingdom work and we’re going to be good at it.

Recently I’ve been doing a lot of digging around in the Epistles and Paul has been kicking my butt. The thing that is jumping out to me is his overwhelming idea of what it is to be “in Christ.” I’ll write more on this later, I’m sure, but I just wanted to start with the verse that jumped out at me:
In 2 Corinthians Paul compares, or rather equates the knowledge of God to a sweet smell–a fragrance. Is that how we see it? This should be something coming off of you, entangling the people you find yourself around. The simplest analogy I can find is that of body odor: when you skip out on showering for a few days, people can tell, right? Well, can people tell that you posses the knowledge of God? That you are aware of the Creator of the universe, the Son He sent to die for our sins and the Wise Counselor He sent to care for us? I wonder how we would impact those around us if we really accepted this idea.
How would that then affect our worship?
Our willingness to serve?
Our everything else?
Whelp. This is happening.
I am currently in the process of transitioning my blog’s hosting service. Tumblr and I had a very on-again-off-again thing going on and I’m going to attribute it to the layout and options. WP seems like a better fit for me. I also feel a need to relieve the internet of my old posts. Some of them are just bad.
Anywho, hello! Welcome to the new boejucci. I hope you find it accommodating.
