Photographers Invited to Go On Mission

This post was about a meeting on August 2. It has been updated to tell you about a meeting on October 4 at 3:00 in the choir room at the main campus of Hilldale Baptist Church.
You can get to the meeting by going through the ugly metal doors on the East side of the building.

This invitation was sent out today to everyone we could think of at Hilldale that does amateur or professional photography. But, of course, we didn't think of everyone. 

Do you have friends at church that are good photographers? 

Will you tell them about the meeting on October 4 at 3:00 in the choir room
 or send them here to this blog post?


By the way..... all of the pictures here were taken by those of us who went to Portugal this year. 
YOU can take cool pictures next year if you go with us!

New Blog Old Blog This Blog that Blog

I used to blog on a regular basis. I'm not sure why I stopped. Just other things were taking my time I suppose - because I always have something to say. lol.

I have a new blog that I'd like for you to check out. It's about the beautiful city of Porto through the eyes of photographers in the USA. You can find it here Porto - from our point of view

I took photographers to Porto. Our purpose was to use photography as a means to share the Gospel. Our IMB friends, Andy and Michelle Milam, were thrilled with all that we could do together. As you click on that blog link you drive up traffic numbers with Google. That in turn makes that web site show up higher on Google searches. (and here's a secret - It's more than a photography blog. It's another way to spread the Gospel. There are links there like Peace with God from the Billy Graham association and many of our photography posts will have Bible verses posted with the pictures.

The other link I'd like for you to check out is an older one that is also a way of sharing the Gospel with the Portuguese. Rezounding Praize It's a blog that our HS handbell choir made when we went to Portugal. It has a lot of nice handbell music (arranged by yours truly) and some scripture and Gospel links, etc.

So...... Check out my old and my new blog. I'm sure that you will enjoy them.

Perhaps I'll start blogging more regularly now....... We'll see.

Passion Play Want Ads

It's that time of year when we're looking for actors. And, as usual, we mainly need men. I'm sorry ladies, it's nothing personal, but between 12 disciples, a couple of Pharisees, Pilate, 2 thieves, and an angry mob, the Passion Play needs a lot of male actors.

The two main speaking parts are covered, so now I just need all of the men listed above. Call the church office and ask for Donna or send me (or Donna) an email saying you're willing to be in our Passion Play this year.

"When is the Passion Play?" you may ask.

I'm glad you asked!

We're doing a "real time" Passion Play again. We'll start on Palm Sunday and end on Easter Sunday.
The dates are:

March 29 - Palm Sunday - 8:30 and 9:45 am
April 2 - Communion Thursday - 7:00 pm
April 3 - Good Friday (arrest and crucifixion) - 7:00 pm
April 5 - Resurrection Sunday! - 7:00 am, 8:30 and 9:45
