Steve did a great job on Easter informing people that Christ took "my space" on the cross and made it "his space." The rest of the series is about our bodies and giving up my space and making our lives his space. Check it out on the TrueNorth Church website.
PS: Steve created a myspace page - click here - for HisSpace
And Element Student ministry also added a myspace page - click here
Betsy has now replaced the Ghetto Corrola that was totalled a couple weeks ago. Her new car is a 2002 Mazada 626. YES it is an upgrade from the Corrolla whose blinker had to be manually blinked. Allstate was VERY Generous in their amount they gave for the Corrolla. And we put some extra into the car for the upgrade, since Betsy will be making $100,000 in a few months....wait....sorry I forgot that unlike most lawyers my wife has a heart and will be making chump change helping people! A lawyer and architect should be doing alright - unless the architect becomes a student minister and the lawyer works for the state. And I can honestly say life couldn't BE BETTER.

This past weekend TrueNorth had a float in the North Augusta Centennial Parade. Unfortunately the rain didn't allow Stainless (our student ministry band) to rock out on the float. Fun times in the rain!

Tif left a comment on our last post and said she had linked from AJ's blog! First didn't know AJ had a blog and second that must mean AJ has been to the Tanner Blog. Every time we think that like 2 people look at this thing we learn that more of our homies are checking us out.
So we would LOVE to do a ROLL CALL. If you are checkin' the Tanner Blog out - leave your name. Our real estimate is that no more that 10 people check this thing out. Let's see if we can get ten names listed.
AJ leave a something behind so I can holla at ya! Would love to hear how you are doing.

Today was the first round of the 2006 Masters in Augusta, and my first steps on the sacred Augusta National. Everyone has told me that you must experience the Masters at least once. They were right. The golf course was CRAZY beautiful. The grass, tree, plants, water and the azaleas were perfect. It was a whole nother world. The sight and sounds of the Master were quite memorable.
It was also cool to see Tiger, Phil, VJ and the rest of the pros in action. They hit the ball so perfect and straight. I looked at my mom (who I took with me) and said these guys should really look at getting paid for this!
Attended the Masters - I can now mark that off the list of things to do in life.

Was listening to Andy Stanely this week and heard a very profound statement. Andy was talking about how people say Christianity is so narrow minded when it comes to Christ being the only way to heaven. A lot of folks say that it is UNFAIR.
Andy goes on to say that it sounds pretty fair to him. Anyone and Everyone is welcomed. Male/ Female. Black/White. Young/Old. The price has already been paid. All we have to do is accept the gift. Everyone has the chance to accept the FREE gift of salvation. Andy ends by saying: "If that isn't fair, I don't know what is!"
Betsy does have already have a job. She will be working with Judge Dickert and Judge Annis in the beginning of August. This is a one year clerkship and Betsy is SUPER excited about the position.
