This video was debuted tonight at the end of the Elevation Talent Show, a big annual fundraiser we do for our student ministry.  Neither Deanna or I could be there this year because of the much celebrated birth of our baby boy, Zion Finn.  He was born at 2:49 PM, weighing in at 7 pounds, 15.5 ounces, and measuring 19 inches.

I swung by the church an hour before the event started to help get media and sound going.  I was even able to welcome everyone and say a big “thank you” before I ducked back out to be with Deanna and Zion.  At the end of the event, they showed this fun little video to introduce our son to everyone.  At that point, no one but family and close friends knew his name…

So fun!  So overwhelmed by joy and goodness!
