Around the holidays, we sometimes like to show some videos or material that we might not have time for in our more serious moments. Be careful not to miss the final video which I discovered when following a link that our good friend, Eagle, provided. I guarantee that you will not be able to stop listening.
Some of you might not realize that we have a link to a site called Lark News. It is a Christian news spoof and every time I visit, I have a good belly laugh. I am warning you: they attack idols with wild abandon. Here are two stories with the links. Dour individuals need to avoid this at all costs.

Exiting pastor saddles church with odd worship leader
"After repeated conflicts with his church board about the direction of Family Life Center, pastor Dave Chandler decided to leave the church. But on his way out he used a little-known clause in the bylaws to single-handedly hire a new worship leader: Bill MacNerny who specializes in “alien folk music” and “tunes for chickens and other intelligent beings.” MacNerny was last employed as a street performer in Key West, Fla., and has made several albums of himself playing the ukelele and making barnyard sounds."

An Affirming Song
Our good friend, Eagle, is also responsible for sending me this music video. It is by the group, MikesChair, and is called Someone Worth Dying For . Remember this, you are deeply loved and you were worth dying for! I kinda like you all as well!
