Wassup Blue Ridge...

I would imagine that most of you who read this already are in the know as to the happenings of Visio Dei... for those who don't and have inquired... thanks! You're thoughts and prayers are so much appreciated.

I feel as though after the last post of not knowing where we were gonna meet for our first Sunday of our prelaunch with only 5 days until... I should now offer a word of excitement for how everything fell into place.

On thursday we finally got everything lined up for the next 4 weeks for us to meet at Blue Ridge Cinema in Raleigh... for those of you who don't know, Blue Ridge cinema is a fine establishment here in Raleigh... it is the only $1.50 theatre on the east coast...

I am certainly happy with how our first Pre launch meeting went... very simple... very straight forward... seemed like good family time... (Thanks for everyone for chipping in and helping out - you guys are awesome) if you couldn't make it and would like to hear the podcast, it's on our website (which isn't finished yet). www.visiodei.org - 9.17.06 - learners, lovers, and givers

Not sure how long we will be at Blue Ridge for our Sunday morning gatherings... We would definately like to find a perminate space down town for obvious reasons but I am wondering if this kind of flexibility is what it is going to take to be an urban church... maybe to be in the area we feel led to be in it's going to take a different approach to what we do... (maybe more thoughts on this later) I am sure our God will lead us...

Hope everyone is having a great start to their week...

Live alive!!!

"Live alive" - I like it!!!

Although I had never previously entertained the idea of having "church" at a movie theatre, it was totally awesome to sing praises to our God and cast vision at this "fine establishment" on Sunday morning!

I look forward to the journey that lies ahead. Blue Ridge, here we come!!! :)
