You’ve probably started seeing those QR code thingies all over the place now – ads, billboards, even plastered to the sides of buildings (remember Kate?). So I started getting currious and thought I would download an app that could read them. Lo and behold I found that I could create them too! Here is what my “hidden message” said:
“Just checkin to see if anyone knows what this is or what this does. If you happen to know to read this, please add a comment telling me one thing: what is your favorite food? That’s all for now! ~Tonja”
And as expected I got only 1 “valid” comment – from Jane, naturally. Such fun those things are!
Anyway, to day is Monday and I survived last week. Not sure how, but I did. We installed new sound equipment at church and had our first rehearsal on Thursday night – what a disaster! The sound was so bad…I was feeling a bit anxious and dejected. I didn’t sleep at all on Saturday night because I was thinking about all the things that could have gone wrong: horrible sound, no power, no projector, spelling mistakes on the screen (which I’ve done before), feedback from the mics. You name it: I imagined it.
So Sunday morning finally arrived and I walk in and Devin (the worship pastor) says: “hey, we just got these 2 cordless mics that we need to use today. Can you set them up?” Yeah, sure. (freak out) I can do that. (gasping for air, starting to have an anxiety attack) But I pulled it out of the box like I knew what I was doing and figured it all out. And everything just sort of magically went right. Perfect sound. Perfect visuals. All transitions went smoothly. And I didn’t die. What an awsome start to this new church! We even had lots of new people! About 30% more than normal – so that was GREAT!
Okay, I need to get back to work now. I’m still alive you know.
