The Cost of a Wedding

In Uncategorized on January 31, 2010 at 10:12 pm

According to the wedding planning website The Knot, the average wedding costs $27,800. Conde Nast Bridal Media (Modern Bride, Bridal Magazine, Elegant Bride, etc) says the average wedding costs $27,852, a very similar figure to The Knot’s.

The message they want to get across: the typical American couple spends $27,000 on their wedding.

This is bullshit.


Worship: Then and Now or Passion vs. Hillsong United

In Personal, Religion on March 11, 2009 at 4:53 am

In 2004, I helped lead worship at Liquid, the college ministry of Austin Chinese Church, which is now it’s own independent church with a better name: Vox Veniae. One of the aims of Liquid was to be culturally relevant not only in the messages but also in the arts. Musical worship was meant to reflect the tastes of Austin college students while innovating musically and challenging perceptions of what musical worship entailed. It’s debatable how much of that we actually accomplished.
