Our church had its Harvest Party for 2012, and of course, a lot of kids came to the party dressed up in costume. I ran the photo booth, and it occurred to me that I could digitally drop these kids in costumes into backgrounds that would fit their persona.

So, I’ve been GIMPing kids into various backgrounds off and on for the past couple of days; I really wanted to get this finished before Thursday (my sermon-writing day).

As I’ve been working with backgrounds for three days, it reminds me of a very powerful song. It’s called, appropriately enough, “Background”. I’d strongly encourage you to watch this YouTube video, so that you can catch the lyrics as well as hear the music.

Word of warning: the artist, Lecrae, is a rap artist, so there are a LOT of lyrics in this song. However, I’ve seen him do this twice before a live audience, and it was a powerful worship experience both times. Even if you’re not a fan of rap music, please put that aside, and consider these words. (If you absolutely must, you could mute the music, and just read the lyrics, but you’d be doing yourself a disservice.)

Grace and Peace to you as you seek to put Jesus first!
