Making Church Matter What's new at Nativity

10 Great Things About This Past Weekend

September 19, 2011

If you were with us this past weekend, you know it was pretty special.  Here are (just some) of the highlights:

1.  Ministry Leaders worshiping together on Friday evening.

2.  The band on Friday evening (which is also our new band for the Sunday evening Mass) and their amazing music.

3.  The second week of LIVE, our Sunday morning broadcast, now airing without technical difficulties.

4.  Small Group Leaders gathering for a retreat on Saturday morning.

5.  The bride who decided to forego wedding favors and donate the money to Nativity/Nigeria.

6.  Time Travelers ministers, leading kids in enthusiastic worship at the end of morning Masses.

7.  The lady who came up to me, weeping, to say, “I’ve looked for a church like this all my life.”

8.  Our Staff

9.  Getting people thinking about taking responsibility for their lives…really.

10. The entire congregation singing the Hello Goodbye song (you had to be there).

By the way, next week is going to be great too.

  1.  Hi Father,

    The band’s performance of Hello Goodbye was surpassed only by the prior performer of the same song at the same Mass. Excellent humor, coupled with an excellent message equals an irresistible experience.  God is love – and as our friends from Liverpool remind us – “All you need is love.”

  2. I do enjoy the manner in which you have framed this particular problem plus it does present us some fodder for consideration. However, through everything that I have experienced, I just simply hope when the actual feedback stack on that men and women continue to be on issue and not embark on a soap box involving some other news du jour. Anyway, thank you for this outstanding piece and whilst I do not concur with the idea in totality, I value the standpoint.

  3. Throughout this great pattern of things you receive an A for effort. Where you actually lost everybody was first in all the specifics. As it is said, the devil is in the details… And that could not be much more correct here. Having said that, allow me tell you exactly what did give good results. Your authoring is pretty persuasive and that is most likely why I am taking the effort to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, while I can certainly notice the jumps in reasoning you come up with, I am not confident of just how you appear to connect the ideas that produce the actual final result. For right now I will, no doubt subscribe to your point however hope in the foreseeable future you connect the facts much better.

  4. My spouse and I stumbled over here by a different website and thought I might as well check things out. I like what I see so now i’m following you. Look forward to checking out your web page repeatedly.
