I haven’t done one of these in a long while.  Since that is the case and I have quite a few new readers since I’ve last done this here’s what this post is.

It’s for you for the purpose of…

  • Ranting, get something off your chest that has been bothering you.  This is especially useful for those of you who read who don’t have your own blog.  What’s on your mind?
  • Prayer requests – let me and others who read know how we can pray for you.
  • Ask a question for me or anyone else who may read this post.  It could be a question on theology, apologetics, ministry, news, politics, etc.  I am not going to guarantee you I have an answer (unless you just want to know my opinion – I’m never short on that, LOL – I mean I blog after all).  If I don’t know there is a good chance someone who reads this may know.
  • If you are one of those readers who “lurk” (read without commenting) this is your chance to give me a shout out.  Tell me a little about yourself if you like.  I am always curious about who reads this blog.  This is especially true of those of you who subscribe to my blog, but never click through because you can read the whole post in your reader or e-mail.
  • Also just a reminder about my comments policy… no personal attacks, no profanity, and do not comment like 3+ times in a row without somebody responding to you.  Links are fine provided they are not to something you are selling or to an inappropriate website.

Have fun, and Happy Friday!

  1. Rant for the day…have to be careful HOW I rant as you will see..
    Examples of really bad apologetics…
    For me, the how of apologetics is every bit as important as the what. I am deeply saddened and angered by those whose snotty, arrogant, demeaning, cynical and ad hominem remarks are masked under the guise of apologetics. Bashing people arrogantly with the “truth” is lying about Christ.

  2. Very true Randy. Greg Koukl of Stand to Reason has a book coming out (if it isn't already released yet) entitled Tactics which deals with the “how to” of apologetics, how we can engage others in a winsome way.

  3. I remember why I don't do these anymore… let's see this went up at 9:00am – 10 hours later only two people commented, but yet I know many more have looked at this post. If you read this, leave a comment – even if you just want to say hi.


  4. Thanks for the Tea Party pics! What a hoot! I would have loved to have been there. Maybe next time. We need to ramp these up with!
