I’m not gonna lie, I love Google. No, I LOVE Google. Google.com, Gmail, Google SMS, Google Analytics, iGoogle (well the new iGoogle Gmail sucks), Google Docs, Google Earth, Google Calendar, shall I continue?
This weekend we held our first Marriage Retreat in the history of LifeChurch. We did a dual retreat; Overnight in Palm Desert for those who wanted to, and at LifeChurch for those who couldn’t get out of town. It was an awesome time for us personally and I think everyone had a blast and grew closer as couples. Here’s a few pictures from the weekend.
Many of you (337 to be exact) follow me on Twitter. Many of you don’t. For those who don’t, let me just say you are missing out! Twitter has been called a ‘micro-blog’ – it’s 140 character updates. What you’re doing, funny sightings, information sharing, etc. It’s alive, and just another great way to be social. One of my favorite functions of Twitter is a little application called Twitpic. It allows you to snap a photo on your phone and share it with the world in a matter of seconds. Simply amazing.
So here’s some of my Twitpic’s that you’ve missed out on if you don’t Twitter (and if you don’t, what are you waiting for?).
I love free stuff. Found some via my Google Reader today & thought I’d share.

That’s it, that’s all I got. What do you got?
My wife’s father lives in Decatur, Alabama.
We went out and visited him a few years ago.
While we were there I told Jen we should visit a church.
She said that we didn’t bring our “church clothes”.
I said, “come again?”
Needless to say, we didn’t go to church. There was literally nothing going on (that we could find) that spoke to our generation, or our laid back culture. We ended up driving to Atlanta and going to 7:22 to catch Louie Giglio deep fry a turkey, totally worth it.
All this to say that a few months ago, Jen’s dad called us to say that he found a church in Decatur that reminded him of our church out here in California. A place where he could just be himself. We were totally surprised. The church is Crosspoint Church, and the pastor has a blog and twitters (imagine that!).
Check out this great video he used to introduce the hot topic of alcohol.
