We are in need of set elements that have something to do with St. James and Alex's lesson themes that are listed here; all citations are from the Epistle of James.

3. Wisdom from Above (1:5-8)
4. Wisdom from Below (3:13-18)

June 1, 2012 - Production Days Set.  Met with Fr. Jerry and Alex at St. Suzanne and confirmed production dates:
Setup: Mon. July 9, 2012 (10 AM - 6 PM)
Shoot: Tu, Wed, Th. - July 10-12, 2012 (5 PM - 10 PM)
Tearout: Fri. July 13, 2012 (10 AM to Noon)

Booked Reinforcement, Inc.  (a staging company in Livonia) to provide black drape and light trusses for the setup. 

We need volunteers to help with setup and production. I'll not clutter this blog with that list. If you can help any of those days, please call Stan 248-344-4423 x-5.

May 28, 2012 - DVD Cover Design, List of Contributors Uploaded, DVD Placeholder Web Page.  It's memorial day, time to remember the U.S. Military and the protection they sacrificially afford us, plant flowers, watch a parade, and catch up on work. Today we (1) created a preliminary design with dummy text of the DVD jacket, (above), (2) established a COMING SOON placeholder on Alex and Donna's Library page at Nineveh's Crossing that now lists all of Our Contributors (THANK YOU!), and (3) heard from Alex giving a mission on St. Lucia in the Caribbean. He sent this picture of the Church where he's teaching. He says they had 4 days of torrential down pours, but today it's post card weather. 

As part of recognizing our contributors, I need to highlight two in particular. One is Cheryl Evans of Livonia, MI and the other is Laura Smith and Terri O'Connell of Abundant Graces Bookstore in Bethlehem, PA. Both made sponsorship level contributions to this effort.If you know Chery, please thank her for us, and please visit Laura and Terri's store and website.

May 24, 2012 - Production Funding Raised. Project gets GREENLIGHT. We're in contact with technical crew, the parish, and Alex to set up dates and arrange for equipment. Alex is currently on a mission in St. Lucia (Caribbean) and in June he'll be in Jamaica. So earliest production looks like July 10, 11, and 12. But a lot of coordination to do before we settle on those dates.
