Week 70 - That's all folks!

Dear Fellowship Friends:

Did you know that the Building Committee had their first meeting on March 16, 2017?

At that time we decided that it was very important that Fellowship members be able to follow along as the remodeling and construction progressed.  Some members don't live in Lafayette and therefore they were unable to see the progress.  Even if a member lived in Lafayette, it didn't help much because the construction site was fenced off.

The committee wondered what the best way to communicate our weekly progress to our members was.

I volunteered to investigate creating a Building Committee Blog and using iMovie to document our successes.  Now, keep in mind, I had never used the software, iMovie, in my life.  This is called Unconscious Incompetence; when you don't know what you don't know.   Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.  Oh well.

Luckily, my 2nd grade teacher son had experience with it and he became the Fellowship's iMovie consultant.  That moved me into the level of Conscious Incompetence; when you know what you don't know.  Hey, progress!

By the way, or BTW as the younger generation says, if you ever need help with some new software, ask a 2nd grade teacher. They have tremendous expertise in this area.  Thanks Nick!

70 video clips later, I've moved into the level of Conscious Competence; When you now what you know. More progress.

The building committee hopes that you have enjoyed watching these 70 video clips of our construction progress and that you felt some satisfaction in seeing the building constructed and remodeled.  What about that videographer's quirky humor?  He shouldn't give up his day job though.

Well, it was quite a roller coaster ride!

Thanks for all your support.  Together, we did it.

ps:  Don't forget that the links to all of the videos are listed on the right hand side of this page.  You can visit them whenever you like.

  1. Hans is right -- these videos have done so much to inform me and keep my spirits up about the building project! Thanks for the work, the wit, and the love that you have put into them. Did I ever say that my son, who is mostly uninterested in Fellowship affairs, comes running to watch when he hears the opening music? That's how cool these are. :)
