He will be the first leader of a mainline denomination to speak at such a church. The […]
What do you think of Senator Hillary Clinton’s joke when she was in Iowa? I don’t think she should go down that road. It isn’t going to help her in her campaign for president. She isn’t running well here. Latest Zogby poll says she is third – way behind John Edwards and Barak Obama, and […]
I just read a great blog post from “Serving the Community” on eyesturnedoutward.com. We do need to engage our community with the love of Jesus, serving in practical ways without an agenda.
In the Des Moines Register today (ok, looking at the time, yesterday), “Senate Oks Bullying Bill; it now heads to House”. I blogged on this last Friday. I contacted my State Senator, Dick Dearden (D-34). He replied: Thank you for your e-mail. I appreciate hearing from constituents The bill includes all students but the enumeration […]
Chery likes to write, and I’ve encouraged her to create a blog and she has resisted. Last night however she finally entered the world of blogging. Check out her blog, Organized Chaos.
Only five dollars! This is a bargain, and it benefits Serve Our Youth Network. You spend $5, and you get $10 plus in value. You can learn more by reading the post on SOY’s blog. You can contact me if you would like one, or two or three or four or five. Do not delay […]
This isn’t a pretty sight. Don’t approach me until I’ve had my first cup of coffee. Cheryl, on the other hand, doesn’t. I think she is naturally caffeinated.
I think I’m going to have something to blog about everyday with the new Iowa Legislature, Governor, and U.S. Congress. Wednesday the Iowa Senate Education Committee passed Anti-Bullying (Senate Study Bill 1048) Bill. The Des Moines Register states that the bill would: “require public and private schools to have policies that prevent and punish bullying […]
Ugh, not long in office and he is already doing it. The Des Moines Register reports that our new Governor, Chet Culver, wants to give $12.5 Million of taxpayer money for a stem cell research center at the University of Iowa. He will also ask our Democratic controlled Legislature to lift a ban on a […]
California Assemblywoman Sally Lieber (D-Mountain View) wants to outlaw spanking of children under three years of age. Lieber told the San Francisco Chronicle last week, “I think we out to have a law against beating children.” No problem, Assemblywoman Lieber, you already do. It is already illegal to beat children in the state of California, […]
My friend, Chris, who is a chaplain with the Army Reserve, is serving in Iraq. In his blog, he shared some encouraging news about how the Gospel is being spread in Iraq.

Chicago Bears 39 New Orleans Saints 14 Very happy that the Bears are back to the Super Bowl after 21 years. Very different than the 1985 team that was there last, but looking forward to actually having a team to root for Super Bowl Sunday.
I was reading Michelle Malkin’s blog tonight (she is a news analyst with Fox News). She recently was in Iraq, and shared about some good news in Iraq that we probably would not hear about any other way. She also shared a Fox News poll that gave some insight into the Democrat’s loyal opposition to […]
Interesting article. We need to share Jesus with young people, but that does not give us license to not meet practical needs of the kids we serve. Kara Powell who is interviewed in this article asked youthworkers at a training that Serve Our Youth Network hosted, “if a kid didn’t know how to read, is […]
I am really concerned about what Congress is attempting to do. Chuck Colson wrote a great article that discusses how Congress wants to restrict our voice. I am posting his entire Breakpoint commentary below. We need to contact our Senators & Representatives like… right now! Democracy at the Grassroots – Protecting Free SpeechJanuary 18, 2007 […]
I was home for lunch and caught my kids out enjoying the snow. They were so excited when it snowed this weekend. Since our backyard is sloped (we are on a hill), they have fun sledding and snowboarding down the yard. The girls have invented chair sledding which you can see in the pictures. Then […]
