The Finished Product and A Night of Worship

After many long days, even longer nights, numerous amounts of empty paint cans, and countless empty fast food containers, I am happy to report the building is done…almost…for now. There are a couple of more things that we hope will be done this week – like carpet in rWorld and a few more signs around the building – but other than that this phase is complete!

This is the wall leading in to rGarden, which is where I hang out on Sunday mornings. And if you think this is cool,

then this…

and this might just knock your socks off. And this is just rGarden!

Here is a little peek inside the room. I had to take three pictures to get the entire room. I am going to blame it on the size of the room, where I was standing, the camera photo I was using, and maybe the lighting too. If I had PhotoShop I believe I might could put all these pictures together so you could see the room as it really is, but alas, I do not. So you’ll have to use your imagination a wee bit here. 
This is what you see when you open the door.

 As you turn to the left…

 And even further left….

I took pictures of rTheater, which is incredibly cool, but they came out blurry. I again blame this on the camera phone, the lighting of the room, etc. It has nothing to do with the operator of the camera at all…nothing at all.

Going upstairs, which is really ground level…

Here you have the connections desk in the center of the room. You can’t tell from the photo – maybe I should think about how to operate a decent camera – but there are two iPads on top of the desk, where you can sign up for an rGroup or a mission trip, get more information about things that are going on, etc. There are generally folks hanging out here to help you out if need something, talk with you and welcome you to REVO.

 This is our wall of life change. It makes me happy every time I see it. Each picture tells a story of a life or lives that have been changed by Jesus, for Jesus. One of my favorite parts of the building.

This, however, is my absolutely favorite part…

Our friends David and Zena did this….It’s so incredible. I see it and think about all the people in the world who don’t yet know that Jesus loves them, that there is more to life than what they know, that there is One worth living for, worth dying for, worth everything. I think about Isaiah who answered the call to go with “Here am I, send me,” and I pray that I am as obedient as he.

 People were working until the last minute, making sure every detail was in place, on Saturday. At 7:00 we had a night of worship. It was a time to come together…and if you are my friend Heather Johnson (aka Preacher’s Wife) you strike a pose…

enjoy the upcoming moment with your spouse…

or your daughter…

meditate on who God is and why we do what we do…

 sing out to the God who has gone before us…

and worship with reckless, unadulterated abandonment.
