    Great idea – especially while we’re just having one service. Countdown clock really adds a lot.

    I do have to chuckle at the idea of a countdown clock: “10 seconds to start!” and then we fire David out of a cannon. I think the kids would love that part.

    i love it, too— AND i have an idea — maybe not a good one, but still, here it is:
    what if the early worshipers (worshippers?) tried to sit near the front so that as other people came in, they wouldn’t have to FEEL late as much, and it would be easier for them to find a seat, that sort of thing?
    (and tell Corrin, please, that i’ve now jumped in!— her turn!)

    I am CRACKING UP visualizing Jeff’s comment! Awesome! I strongly agree with Anne (and Corrin?) in theory. My only hesitation is I am SUCH a “back of the church” kind of gal. Not sure I am ready to make such a radical change in my routine. :> Cause, you know, it really is all about me!

    All really great thoughts. I’ll post an update on the voting results. I love the idea of moving people toward the front also.

    We should put signs on the pews like “reserved for quiet people” and “reserved for cool people” and “reserved for computer nerds” and things like that. I think that could really add a lot = )

    Today I did a practice run out of the cannon. Not bad. a little singed.
