Moving Day!

Well, here we are. The time has finally come for v1.0 to shut it down, pack it up and head on over to my new home.

the power of social media & ministry

this is from a few months ago....
this came across the wire today. click the post title to read the article. i thought it was pretty interesting. Twitter recently updated their app for iOS devices to include a bar of trending topics. it lasted about 3 weeks. personally, i didn’t mind the bar, but obviously plenty of other people did not see it the same way i did.

Crazy Love and Radical

this is a post from 1 year ago. These two books have helped shape the path I've been on for the last year. Enjoy!

Two really great books. I love them. I have read Crazy Love twice now and am currently working on Radical. Pat me on the back twice, huh? But here are two guys (Francis Chan and David Platt) who seemingly defeat the status quo. Every page you turn, you are presented with a new challenge of how to carry out your faith and advance the Kingdom of God. With every chapter, we are reminded of how Jesus challenged everything that was "right" with the culture of His time period. Jesus was all about being "radically" different and living His life with a "crazy love" for His Heavenly Father. (see what i did there? huh?)

Isaiah 45:22 (repost)

here is a little something from January of 2009...

Turn to me and be saved, all the ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other (ESV).

I think alot of times, as Christians, we often sit around wondering,

"Ok, what's next!? I have done the whole, I believe in Jesus bit, I got baptized, I go to church, I do missions, I even shared Jesus with my neighbor down the street like 4 years ago! Why do I still feel like I am in this revolving door of a lame, mundane life?"
