My grandfather got me intrigued about supersonic flight when he told me that it's essentially silent. Because the plane is travelling faster than the speed of sound, it leaves behind any sound that it makes. Every time I fly, I wish I was in the Concorde where the screaming engine noise would be long lost to the sheer speed of the plane.
Sometimes I feel like the church is supersonic. It's going so fast that the sound CREW is left behind by the speed of new events piled onto the calendar. That's one reason why we've begun our new training class called SuperSonic.
SuperSonic is for young men and women in high school. They will meet twice a month for 3 hours to learn about sound, lights, and video throughout the Covenant Life Church building. The first session was two days ago, and the group of seven young men and women were stoked to get flying.
I'm fired up about seeing more young folks gaining a broad understanding of the technical systems in the building. And even more, I'm looking forward to being able to influence them to serve for God's glory. More about that tomorrow.
