As we thought about how best to illustrate Our Magnificent God…in what we called the Design series the word that came to mind over and over was…”Wow”. You can’t help but say “Wow” when you even get a glimpse of how great God is and how perfect is His design for all creation. How could we somehow in our small and finite space communicate this “Wow”? It had to be BIG.
So we called our friends at Sew?What.inc and asked if they could create a cambio for us that would fill our stage space. They are amazing! I talked to Violet on Friday morning the week before our series started and the 19′ x 32′ cambio was finished and shipped by Friday afternoon so we could install it the next week. Thanks Sew?What.inc.!
Then our faithful ‘how to guys’, John Houston and John Romain came on the scene and we installed a series of eye bolts across the ceiling and were able to use a continuous rope to hoist the whole thing up. Wow, that thing is BIG!
Collecting images that would illustrate God’ magnificence took lots of time and research and that’s what Mark Lancaster is so amazing at. He and Scot Pollok gathered facts and photos to pull together a presentation that “wowed” us all. Getting those images up on the BIG screen took all the extra laptops and projectors we could muster. Until it was all plugged in for the first time, we had no idea if it would even work! As with all of our projects we learned as we went along, necessity is the mother of invention…
The band moved forward on the stage, thanks to Tray’s patience and flexibility, the backstage was cleared and Chavier lights were installed. We had some great technicians planted in the congregation that kept the show moving with multiple remotes, Phillip Villareal, Tony Chalas and Ryan Callahan all had their fingers on the trigger and for three weeks we were all awed by God’s design of us and for us.
Wow, how Magnificent is our God! We stand amazed.
