It's 7 a.m. on a Sunday morning and I'm sitting in my car in the North Point Church parking lot. A funky bass riff penetrates throughout the stone building in front of me. Inside, this church is getting ready to rock three different stages and worship services with amazing music. The caterer just dropped off some much needed breakfast and I'm told the parking lot attendants arrived much earlier at 4:30 a.m. to set up their ‘stage.’ Mega churches by standard are usually, you guessed it, huge. But, what's happening inside that large space is pretty incredible. A behind the scenes look could really open ones eyes to any large group in their community and provide important perspective.
Now, why am I here at this time when the first service doesn't start until 9am? I needed to come early for my daughter. This is one of those "don't ever question my love for you" times. I jokingly say that to my kids when something seems out of the ordinary, it started when I began purchasing live crickets and fed them to my daughter’s lizard. I get the creeps just thinking about how I had to buy live bugs and pull one out of a bag daily and fed to a green guy named Fred. This daughter has moved past the reptile stage and is now working with the band and the sound booth at this church. The shift starts earlier than expected for a Sunday. This daughter of mine is not driving......yet.

Are “Energy Star” products really worth it? Some people pay extra if an item has the energy star seal of approval but a recent investigation found that fifteen fake products received the federal certification. The EPA and DOE are on top of this and are now requesting a better testing of brands. Most Energy Star products that are on the market are about ten percent more-efficient than other models.
