100th Post... Christian Skate Night

It's hard to believe I've already made 100 posts here at TTSM. I'm pretty sure Christian Skate Night is NOT worthy of such a note worthy post. Oh Well.

Tonight I was flip'n the wax as the DJ / MC / group leader for our church's annual all family skate night. Two hours of quality "christian only" music mostly done in the normal skating direction. Red Light Green Light, A Glo Skate, and a "Friend" Skate all were included. We played most of the christian skate night hits like Newsboy's "Shine" and Audio A's "Big House" but I somehow got to Cal Skate GT (our local rink) with out a copy of this. I think that qualifies as one of my most embarassing moments ever. Shame on Cal Skate for not having their own copy. We survived and a bunch of kids and students are that much closer to paying for summer camp. (Does anyone else minister in this kind of christian culture ghetto?) Thanks to all who were there. I'll try to make an anouncement here on TTSM if and when we do it again. All you locals can come out and get your groove on to "Jesus is still alright".

Also, the DJ from the rink, who specializes in "Christian Nights" did Bible Trivia all night and actually gave me this tract...

It's a zero $ bill because zero is the number of God's laws you can break if you are trying to get to heaven on your own. Like JDF, I hate it when the gospel gets reduced to a gimmick, but even if that's your gig... It's probably a safe assumption that the youth pastor heading up the "christian skate night" has already prayed the prayer. Save your bills for someone else.

I have two comments about this post...

Checks?!!? Really?!?! I thought that MWS guy was cool. I've never actually seen a mountain move by faith, but apparently once by faith I thought a man in a Checked shirt was cool...

There just seems something sinful about someone who's a DJ who self-identifies as Christian who shares tracts. You're only one consonant off my friend. You're a flippin DJ! People want you to play that song that makes them feel that way. The same DJ by default self-identifies a talent for knowing a good tracK. Please, share those instead.
