Desperately Seeking Susan (Boyle)

We are all desperately seeking a "Susan Boyle moment."

If you are not one of those at least 50 million people who have seen the original clip of Susan turning a Britain's Got Talent judges panel and crowd from smirking fools to joy-filled, sobbing Boyle believers, here's the link.

However, the point I'd like to make is seen in the second video... The Jimmy Fallon video. Unfortunately, there is no copying allowed either from YouTube or Fallon's blog. So, I've included the link. If you've seen the Susan Boyle moment already, then you'll be up to speed before watching Fallon's piece.

How desperate are we to find inspiration? Well, one indicator is the number of online views Susan is's one of those record-breaking viral things that I think is still going strong.

The whole phenomena is a case study in the human condition...desperate for a Susan Boyle moment. Not good or bad, just always wanting to fill a need. In this case, the need for inspiration.

Easter Together in Prayer

Nearly filling the outfield grass, worshippers from several South Orange County Churches came to celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ at the second Easter Together at Richard T. Steed Memorial Park in San Clemente Sunday.

As the sun rose over the nearby hills as if on cue, the first of two services began with songs and a short testimony by Cornerstone Community Church member, Darryl McFann. He explained how at an Easter service 11 years ago, his life began to transform.

"I couldn’t tell you one word that the pastor had said that day," McFann said. "But, I could tell you that I immediately understood that there was a void and it was being filled. I had a heart transplant. That’s how I feel about it."

South Orange County pastors took turns giving the message of the love and healing power available in Jesus. Seven local Orange County churches hosted the event.
