Service of Prayer, Reflection, and Imposition of Ashes

Here are a few shots from our service last night. For me personally it was a physically and emotionally draining day, but a good one. I always like this particular service for the mere fact it starts a time of reflection and prayer, which moves our focus toward what's really the greatest celebration of the…

Church and Amazing Lyrics of How Deep the Father’s Love for Us

The shot above was one I took while the band was warming up for worship this morning. I never get tired of being around the worship band and their practices. It is just as much a part of worship to me as when the official worship time begins. This church location, our second site, has…

How Deep The Father’s Love For Us

We used this modern day hymn in our service this past Sunday and the lyrics were just incredible to me... the line "I hear my mocking voice call out among the scoffers" really puts an emphasis on God's love for us. I know the song is about 10 years old at this point but still…

The Friday Night Lights Live Album Recording :: Friday Feet

Today's Friday Feet comes from a live album recording here at Cornerstone Church in Auburn. I will probably post a few more photos of the shoot tomorrow but for now, here is a smattering of feet and music from the night. The live recording took place over two nights, last night and tonight, and was…

Celebrating the Life of Erin Stephens Today at Cornerstone

This week our church lost a dear friend as the Lord brought home Erin Stephens. Erin touched this church and the Auburn community in so many ways, and this was quite evident by how many people came to say goodbye to her today. It was a privilege for me to be a part of that…

The Mike Fisher and a Gibson Guitar at Cornerstone

The Photo of the Day today is of Mike Fisher who got his first chance to play guitar with the main worship band. It was pretty cool to see Mike playing with the worship band today, and although there is always almost no light in the worship area it does make for a more dramatic…

Last Few Instrumental Photos from the National Polka Festival

Here are two more instrumental shots from last weekend's 2011 National Polka Festival from Ennis Texas. You can also see the NPF gallery on Flickr. These are two of my favorite shots of the weekend, one being the corner edge of a steel guitar. These were both taken handheld from about 20 feet away from…

National Polka Festival in Ennis Texas 2011 and It’s Age at 45

Last night started the 45th Annual National Polka Festival from Ennis, Texas. I'm not going to post a bunch of photos here on my blog but you can see the photos on my Flickr Set for the National Polka Festival.  This festival is something we try to go to every year, and it's an event…

My Favorite Up and Coming Musician

The Photo of the Day today is one of my favorite electric guitar players and musicians, and he has his game-face on. I am pretty amazed at how well Mike can handle a guitar and you should hear him do Sweet Child of Mine

To Feel God You Must Believe in Him

This has been one of these craziest few weeks in our house in years, and for the first time in what feels like forever, some routine and normalcy is slowly returning. I finally had a chance to just read again for a short while this morning, and I came across this explanation that Mstislav Rostropovich…
