Our Austin Team Reminiscent of Berkeley

Setting: Pastor Manny and others in the Gracepoint Austin team are playing basketball at a gym in UT Austin.

Austin Student #1: What!? Manny, you're THAT old? I can't believe it! I had no idea!

Pastor Manny: [smiles] Oh nice.

Austin Student #2: You're pretty good. You know, my dad - he was also into basketball in the 80's like you.

Gracepoint Basketball Fellowship

This is a clip of the basketball game that the older sisters of Gracepoint played at Sierra Lodge.
Obviously, Jeannie Lee was the MVP. Awesome point guard - reminds us of what Jason Kidd did for the Cal team.
But who might qualify for the LVP is a debatable question.


Some have commented that Susanna Lee of Waypoint would make a very good volleyball setter. Also, some have commented that there is a noise decibel difference between a brothers basketball game and a sisters basketball game.

Normal vs. Dan & Hannah

Dan's imitations are amazing, especially that of Andy Tung.

A Disgracepoint Story by Pastor Ed

Pastor Ed wrote up a hilarious story that I would like to point to. (did you even know that Pastor Ed's been writing articles for a few years onto our "notebook" section?)

Check it out.. Go to www.gracepointonline.org/notebook, then follow the link for Pastor Ed. Or you can go directly to the story here: "A Story with Way Too Much Information"

I read it, and it's too good not to share with others. And since disgracepoint gets more hits than Pastor Ed's notebook (not sure what to think about that), I thought I should advertise for it here.

Warning: this story is not for the squeamish!

Announcing: Dish-Gracepoint!

A2F1 Tom Kim has started a great site for all small groups and would-be cooks - it's called Dish-Gracepoint, accessible at: http://dishgracepoint.blogspot.com

Take a look at that site before cooking anything!  It also has the weekly special deals on where to go to buy meat that week. 

Tom's motto has always been:  "I can feed the multitude for $2 per person."  And with this new site, that personal dream is fast becoming a church-wide vision.

Gracepoint Austin - Youth farewell

This is the video that our Element Youth Group of Gracepoint Berkeley made for Pastor Manny and Sunny for their farewell to Austin, as they are going there to plant a church in Austin. We will miss them dearly.

Gracepoint's Braveheart

This video is the very first emcee video act that was done in the history of our church in Berkeley. We did it with blue screen and linear editing machine that had multiple VHS tapes. It took about 30 hours to make this simple video, and Richard and I had to start over several times. This was our very first attempt at movie satire.

English Patient: Trash Day

English patient G was with her group, breaking the 30-Hour Famine fast together. Afterwards, as she was taking out the trash, sister G turns and asks her students very sincerely:

"Who wants to take a dump?"

Dis-Gracepoint Fellowship Picture Contest!

To commemorate the upcoming launch of Gracepoint-Berkeley's Summer MYT classes, here's a pretty good demotivator (thanks to A2F1 junior brothers) that's just calling out for a perfect picture! Please submit your pictures by emailing them to me.
In order to give it some time for picture submission, Disgracepoint will not publish any more posts for a few days, so that there is some artificial buildup created with this contest.
