Have you seen Pushing Daisies? I think it's one of the best new shows and definitely the most creative! If you haven't tuned in yet you should go to abc's website to at least watch the first episode so you know what's going on! If you like Tim Burton movies I believe you'd love this show. One of mine and Matt's favorite things is that the main character, Ned, owns a pie shop called the Pie Hole! :)
Ned was born with a strange "power." If someone (or something) dies he can touch it to make it come back to life. He then finds out if he touches that same someone again they will be forever dead. If he brings someone back to life he must touch them again to make sure they are dead within 1 minute or someone in close proximity must die. (sounds confusing, I know, but you just have to see for yourself! :) )
About the show (from ABC's website):
Grown up Ned puts his talent to good use by touching dead fruit and making it ripe with everlasting flavor. He opens a pie shop. But his gift leaves him wary of becoming close to anyone, as beautiful waitress Olive Snook finds out. His life as a pie maker gets more complicated when private investigator Emerson Cod finds out about Ned's secret. Emerson convinces the cash-strapped Ned to help him solve murder cases (and collect the hefty reward fees) by raising the dead and getting them to name their killers.
Then Ned is handed the case that changes his life forever. His childhood sweetheart, Charlotte "Chuck" Charles, is murdered on a cruise ship under strange circumstances. Her death brings him back to his hometown of Coeur d' Coeurs to bring Chuck back to life, albeit briefly, and solve the crime. But once reunited with Chuck, Ned can't bring himself to send her back. He helps her escape after her grieving aunts, Lily and Vivian (Swoosie Kurtz, Ellen Greene), former synchronized swimmers Darling Mermaid Darlings, think they've buried her forever.
Chuck becomes the third partner in Ned and Emerson's PI enterprise, but she encourages them to use their skills for good, not just for profit. Ned is overjoyed to be reunited with Chuck, the only girl he's ever loved. Life would be perfect, except for one cruel twist -- if he ever touches her again, she'll go back to being dead, this time for good.

A new bluegrass duo called Trees Leave opened with 3 songs. They were surprisingly good. One of the guys played the guitar SO fast you could hardly see his hand. The other was a great fiddle player.
Finally the Glory Revealed group came out. David Nasser and Mac Powell said a few words and then the "show" started. I hate to even call it a show because it was completely a worship service! They opened with "I'll Fly Away" and it was so awesome! I love a good hymn remix! :)
Altogether the group sang a few songs from the album and a few hymns and worship songs. Shane and Shane (one of my new favorite groups!) sang 2 of the songs off their new album Pages. They were awesome! ("We love you Jesus" and "Vision of You"--WOW!)
David Nasser spoke in the middle of worship time about how God reveals himself through His Word and what easy access we have to it if we'll just use it. He is also a very funny guy. He told us all how they would be on TBN the coming Friday. He said the people at TBN were so nice and wonderful...they just have bad wigs! :)
One of the last songs is my new favorite worship song. Candi-Pearson Shelton is one of THE BEST women vocalists I've ever heard. She sang "Mighty to Save" and as soon as she hit the chorus almost everyone's hands went up as we sang praises to our Lord Jesus! (I had NEVER heard the song before and was feeling left out! ha!) Anyway, here's a clip of "Mighty to Save." (INCREDIBLE!)
