Phyllis is a very sweet lady in our church who is fighting some really nasty cancer. She's been sick for a long time and hasn't been able to be in church which has always been a really big part of her life - so ... since she can't be with us, I put together a video greeting so that when she's at home laying on the couch and feeling crappy and isolated, all she has to do is plug this into the DVD player and see her kooky church friends wishing her love.
Hats off to those who participated. Nobody likes to talk to a camera and I'm sure every single one of us who did this felt really stupid but you guys will make Phyllis' day ... probably a few days and will surely give her a reason to laugh. Keep Phyllis in your prayers. She's one of the good guys.... one of the people who doesn't play church but is the church ... one of the people we need down HERE for a long time to come.
This is an edited version of the video. Youtube has been giving me a hard time today. The first video I uploaded was too long and was rejected so I had to cut parts out. You all missed the part with Howard and Angie. Angie was hitting Howard and telling him to "say something". A few other parts were also cut. Phyllis got the whole video though. It was delivered to her tonight.
