carnival clean-up

I helped with clean-up efforts to “take down” my parish carnival booths at St Bernadette Catholic Church in Hollywood, FL.  With only about a dozen people, it took all day and there’s still more to do.  The occassional rain didn’t help either.  Anyway, great work … I’ll feel it all week … came home a lobster.  — It’s nice to be working with the same workers that I did back in 8th grade (for service hours), but that was 15 years ago … where’s some fresh blood.

Parish Carnival

February 16, 2008 1 comment

On my first real day of mid-term break, I spent some time at my parish of St Bernadette Catholic Church in Hollywood, FL.  This weekend we’re having our annual Mardi-Gras themed Carnival (our biggest fundraiser).  These pictures were actually taken Sunday night (when it rained), but most of the weekend had good weather and a good turn out.

Leeland songs + poverty

February 14, 2008 Leave a comment

I stumbled upon some great videos by a newer Christian group called Leeland.  They’re very deep, passionate and “present.”  I also saw them in concert last year at an Aquire the Fire youth conference.  I fresh and renewing sound to the Christian mainstream.

The first video/song is Leeland’s “Tears of the Saints with a collage of today’s poverty [dedicated to Karl Marx, spokesman for the poor, & Contemporary Philosophy class].  The video (and included lyrics) was put together by a Baptist minister.  There are others on YouTube, but I like this one.

The second video/song is Leeland’s “Sound of Melodiessimply a great sound.

This last video is Leeland in concert with a moment of Scripture & “How Great Thou Art.”  — indeed.
