Longhorns at Gracepoint Irvine Church?

August 13, 2014 at 11:02 am 2 comments

A month ago, I got an email from Ray Choi who is now heading up Gracepoint Irvine Church, one of our new church plants starting up this Fall.  I couldn’t help but to reply to Ray and Sieun, correcting them on the strange hand sign for longhorns; their longhorn sign looked like the animal had a very long nose, very sadly mutated.  If they’re going to pastor that new church well, they need to teach their members how to do the sacred longhorn sign properly.  Susanna and I had the chance to serve with them when we were back in our Berkeley church a couple of years ago, but alas, I didn’t teach him how to do that sign.  😦

Some of you might have seen the recap video earlier this year from the most incredible Bladium night at All College Training School (ACTS) where the oldies won and how in the moment of sheer delight, I was caught on film doing the longhorn sign.  The caption read, “Shameless plug for Longhorns!” but truth be told, that was a proud plug for Longhorns!  In fact, that just came out very naturally; what’s in the heart comes out naturally…didn’t Jesus say that somewhere?  Anyway, you can see that magical meeting of Sophomores vs. Gracepoint pastors & deacons  (btw, notice in that picture on the Gracepoint Ministries leadership team that I happened to wear burnt orange…and that was before we moved out to Austin!):

    Pastor Jonathan sure knows how to see the world through burnt orange lenses! Thankful we can be serving these two campuses with very related and comparable mascots.
