While at Magic Mountain two weeks ago Caleb got picked to be a volunteer for the Bird show. He had the opportunity to feed a baby emu (which was almost as big as him!), and also entertained the crowd with some very slick dance moves during a 15 second lull in the show. As a reward for his efforts, they gave him a free photo holding up the parrots that were in the show - he was pretty pumped as you can see.
Sunday night I was very blessed to attend Mosaic, a church started by Erwin McManus. The church meets in 4 locations around LA, and doesn't own any property. I attended the Mayan Theater campus, which is a downtown salsa night club. The crowd was mostly 20 - 30 something, the music was hip hop, and the atmosphere was very refined and cool (they even had the disco ball and a smoke machine going!). Erwin preached from John 8:1-12, and the challenge was for believers to stop being the ones holding the rocks, and start being the people who show the grace, mercy, and compassion of Christ.
