It's Friday! And you know what that means...It's time for everyone's favorite: "Shuffle Up and Deal"! Sorry about the tardiness of the post today. We had Sports Day at the park this morning for Middle School, then I had a pretty important meeting. All of that to say this: I am especially stoked for this week's edition. Not so much for the music, but for the man behind it. This week's "First Five" belongs to Matt McGill. For me to even begin to express my appreciation for Matt would be impossible. He's one of my favorite people on the entire planet Earth. When I served on the Middle School team at my last church in Orange County, he served on the Student Ministries team as the High School Pastor. Not only was he an amazing dude to work with, but he actually let me live with him for 2 or three months! I think he's great! I think his wife, the Mish, is great! And I think their sons, Max and the B, are just about the coolest kids in the known universe! Matt and Mish are in the process of adopting a baby boy from Kenya right now. You should take a second to read a little about Matt's trip there here, here, here, and here. Seriously... Go ahead. I'll still be here when you get back...
Now, aren't you glad you did that?
We know that Matt is amazing. We also know that Courtney thinks that his new son looks like Mr. T. But can we learn from his iPod? Do his songs match his level of awesomeness? Let's find out...
