The kids were out of school today, and I didn’t know what that would mean for me getting some work done.
I had to be in Memphis at 11 this morning to speak to a pastor’s luncheon at Bellevue Baptist Church. I dropped Cameron and the kids off at the mall and picked them up again a few hours later.
The luncheon was good, I saw several pastors I’ve been e-mailing the past few months. They seemed interested in using video in their worship services and asked some good questions about how to begin.
It’s interesting how much attitudes have changed regarding video in churches in just the past 8 months. When I started the ACTS Network the reception was a little cool from some traditional churches, but now they seem to understand it can be a great communication tool, even in the worship service.
Trey, Delaney and I hit the golf course late in the afternoon to hit some balls on the driving range. It was closed because its so wet, so we played around on the putting green for awhile. I haven’t really played golf since we moved to Memphis 7 years ago. Before Trey was born, I played at least 3 times a week. When I worked early mornings and got off at noon, I’d play after work. When I moved to anchoring the 10pm newscast, I’d play early in the morning. I never got really good at the game, but I loved it. I hope to get back out there a bit more and find my swing again.
I have two important meetings tomorrow, one with area Chambers of Commerce about a relocation video project and another one with a church wanting a dvd they can hand out to visitors. I need to get at least one of these jobs, the project for the other church is due at the end of the week and that’ll wrap up all of my current projects except for ACTS.
