Since fall has arrived, I decided to watch my fall movie: Harry Potter. I know it's a weird choice, but true. So as I was watching my favorite fall movie, I noticed something that I had never really noticed before. As Harry is flying on a hippogriff (non-nerds, stick around. I'll speak normally in a second) he decided to let go and enjoy the ride. It looked like this:
And I realized that I would NEVER do that. I thought, "How weird. What is he doing?! Put your hands back on!!!! You're going to fall off!!"
I'm just not one of those people!
If you wanted to find a thrill seeker, you wouldn't come looking for me.
Sky diving sounds like a cool way to die.
Riding a roller coaster sounds like a good way to get your organs all out of place or your arms cut off.
Bungee jumping sounds like a super fun time, until you splat. And in my mind, you will splat.
In all honesty, I spent the last two days thinking about this and what it has to do with my life or the Lord. I came up with nothing, but I still thought it was cool and wanted to share it. :) Plus, it's Halloween and Harry Potter is very Halloweeny, so I get a pass.
There are a few ideas rolling around in my head about why this stuck out to me, but mostly, I'm thankful for Harry Potters who do crazy things like that. And another mostly, I'm content that the Lord built me to be a person who convinces my friends that jumping off of the roof into the pool really isn't a good idea.
Here are the songs we did that last two weeks in NewSong!
"This Is My Father's World" is an old hymn that we re-did. I loved it!
"Here For You" by Matt Redman
"Forever Reign" by Kristian Stanfill
"The Earth is Yours" by Gungor
"Set Free" by Chris Tomlin
"Alive in Us" by Hillsong
"Cornerstone" by Hillsong - love this song!!
For the offering, we watched a video called Free that a number of people talked about. It's a great video and this may be illegal, but if you want to watch it again, you can watch it on the company's website that produced it right here! We, unfortunately, cannot give you the video! Hannah said a number of people had asked for it. But you can watch it on the internet again and again!
Have a great week and I'll see you all soon!
