Adult Truths

Got these from a friend and found them hilarious! Thought I’d share the humor: I think part of a best friend’s job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you’re wrong. I totally take back all those times I […]

What’s The Big Deal About Israel?

I mentioned in my message last Sunday just a little bit about the importance of Christians standing with Israel. I believe it’s particularly important to talk about this in light of President Obama’s recent statement. It took me a long time as a Christian to get this issue. By “getting it”, I don’t claim to […]

Feeling Crappy

How’s THAT for an honest post title? Feeling crappy. Not just physically, but emotionally. Maybe even spiritually right now. Not only do I not feel a whole lot better after 7 weeks and 33 pounds of fighting this stomach thing, but now my kids have just left for Youth Group. I know … shouldn’t I […]

Thoughts About Joey Pullen

On Sunday evening, May 31, I received one of a handful of the saddest phone calls I have ever (and will ever) receive. Joey Pullen, a former member of NewHeart’s Youth Ministries, had committed suicide that afternoon. All the reasons surrounding Joey’s decision and its implications (as is the case with almost every suicide) are […]

Thoughts About “Biblical”

I’ve been reading some stuff in the last week or so about what’s “Biblical” and what’s not. I’m getting kind of bugged by it. Specifically, it’s stuff on how churches do church. The train of thought is “we want to do church Biblically” or “more Biblically.” Haven’t you been doing church Biblically before? I know […]

Trust Is A Curious Thing

I am trying hard to trust God today! Wait a minute….can you really try hard to trust God? Isn’t that an oxymoron? Honestly, I am not sure if it is or not, I’m just being open with you. I am trying hard to trust God today. There, I said it again! I am finding myself […]

I’m Not Going To Do Anything For Christ (1 of 2)

I read a powerful short blog article today that sums up alot of what I feel my last several years have been about. It’s here courtesy of Anne Jackson, whose blog I follow regularly. She writes: this year i have only one resolution: to do less. i’m not talking about simplifying, either. i mean that […]

Looking & Listening

I’ve been working through a teaching series lately called “Seasons”, where we’ve been looking at how God has set the earth to identify when certain seasons change. Depending on what part of the world you live in, you can tell by the weather when Fall turns to Winter … Winter to Spring … and so […]

Virginia Tech Tragedy

Perusing some blogs about the VT Tragedy perspectives, I came across one of my favorite bloggers. A Pastor in Washington, DC; Mark Batterson at Evotional.com. I really appreciate how he writes and thinks, and was struck by how he gave some perspective on the VT Tragedy: It certainly doesn’t shake my belief in God. It […]
