Keeping the Past in the Past
by Tom Goodman
April 24, 2013

USA Today reported on a performance artist who implanted a camera in the back of his head and spent a year recording everything he passed.

Wafaa Bilal is a professor at the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University.  He says his project would be an "allegorical statement" about what we don't see and leave behind.

Most of us spend a lot of our time always looking back, too, but at least he's getting paid for it.  What does it profit us?

This Sunday at 10, join us for a study on how to really put our past behind us.  "Can You Help Me Let Go of the Past?" was one of the top six questions people in our area most want to ask God, according to our March poll.  The sermon will end with a dramatic presentation that you won't want to miss!

Children's Musical.  At 6:30pm this Sunday, our kids will be presenting the musical "Under God's Sea in 3D."  Here's Gene's note on the special event:

Yes, there is one of the songs that you will be able to put on your 3D glasses and see it in 3D!!  A first at Hillcrest!!!  We'll have 3D glasses for you, so you can leave your own at home!  Our kids and workers in Kids Music Theater and Preschool Praise Club have been working hard all year to get ready for this event.  I encourage you to make every effort to come enjoy their presentation and support them and their hard work.

Do You Have a Spare Bedroom?  On Thursday, May 16, the 145-student University Choir and Orchestra from the school of music at California Baptist University will be in concert at Hillcrest!  We need you to provide housing on May 16 as well as breakfast and a ride to Hillcrest the following morning before you go to work.  This is a superb group of students.  Questions?  Contact my assistant, Jami, at 345-3771 or email her.

Volunteering at the Salvation Army Fundraiser.  I'm a volunteer at the "Doing the Most Good" luncheon, and I can bring 15 with me.  It's on Friday, May 3, at the AT&T Executive Conference Center.  Volunteers work from 9am to 2pm.  You'll get lunch and enjoy the performance by Ricky Skaggs and Sarah Jarosz.  Dress is business casual.  We invite you to become a part of changing people's lives.
