Sea of Green... 400 IHOPers?

Yes. 400 IHOPers following a large green mountain apon which is St Pat himself saying, "I bring you the same message I brought to Ireland, repent, and be saved from your sins... for JESUS is ALIVE!" and many other such powerful gospel presentations... each one followed by 400 green shirted ones with streamers singing "Grace like rain falls down on me".

We were float #115 in 119 floats! haha... but what a way to end the parade! woohoo!

I will have more pics soon, but thought I would get this one out as soon as possible! :)

Dead Sea Scrolls!

Today I went to see the Dead Sea Scrolls at the Union Station here in KC. They are here until the end of May and it was amazing.

The first part of the presentation was a short movie on the history and when and where the scrolls were found. Then, with the help of these amazing little audio devices, I walked through the rest of the exhibit. It started with a lot of information about where the scrolls were found, and about the people who found them, and the way they were preserved for so many years. The translation process and the whole piecing it all together was laid out as well. Back when they were first found, they actually pieced them together using TAPE until they realized that was causing damage! They were also, at one point in the 50's actually advertized in the Wall Street Journal FOR SALE!

Amazing. Then it was a time line, and history of the Jewish culture etc. I love that kind of stuff! And then finally... with great anticipation, I walked into the next room and saw the pieces of the scrolls, each carefully under glass, each well explained and displayed. There were portions of Job, Isaiah, Deuteronomy, and Psalms, and it was very cool. A piece of history... right before my eyes.

I forgot how much I enjoyed museums! :)

Anyway. It was a good day.

Tomorrow morning (bright and early) I get up early, and go to the SAINT PATRICK'S DAY PARADE!! I'm part of the "man on the street, one on one video interviews!" Should be fun! I'll blog more about it tomorrow! :)
