I’m blessed far beyond I deserve.
I’m not a tech professional by any means, but here’s what seems to make sense to me for today’s iPhone announcement:
- New iPhone with spec bump: faster A5 chip, increased RAM, better camera.
- Same design as iPhone 4. I don’t see any need for Apple to throw out a design that they spent a lot of resources developing. It’s a good design.
- Most of the advances here will be in the iOS 5. The Assistant voice recognition software and other unknown features will only run on the new phone.
- Drop the suffix. This isn’t the iPhone 5 or 4S; it’s just the iPhone. Unlike most other handset manufacturers, Apple plans to just make iPhones as long as they can. They won’t be changing the name to something charming. Just as MacBook Pro is still a MacBook Pro whenever they change specs or design, this is just the iPhone.
Songs we sang at RVC this weekend:
Call To Worship
-Glorious (Evan Wickham)
-Here For You (Matt Redman)
-Worthy, You Are Worthy (Chris Tomlin & Matt Redman)
-How Deep The Father’s Love For Us (Stuart Townend)
-Your Grace Is Enough (Chris Tomlin)
We’re starting a new series at RVC teaching through the book of Colossians, so we’ll be talking a lot about the supremacy and sufficiency of Christ. I’m planning lots of songs that glorify Him and declare the gospel. Both seem like pretty good themes to sing about.
On another note, I’m loving Here For You. The lyrics convey a sense of passion and abandon as we come to worship together. This was our 3rd week leading it at RVC and it seems like our congregation is beginning to own it.
Welcome to Stock Pick Of The Week, the post that’s neither weekly nor stock-related. It’s actually something I’ve bought/stolen/found recently that I think everyone should experience.
Recently, I purchased a new pair of board shorts. Really, they’re a pick of the week in and of themselves. Great fit, bring yellow and orange. Love them. You can get some at The Laundry Room. I haven’t been swimming yet, but they’ve become my loungewear of choice.
BUT WAIT. As I was lounging in said loungewear, I happened to reach down into the velcro-encased pocket to find a plasticy treasure: a mustache comb. Yes, a comb for your mustache… shaped like a mustache. Truly mind blowing.
So if you see me
surfing lounging around town with a well-groomed mustache, now you know why. Go and do likewise. Buy buy buy!
