Fred Phelps, the “pastor” of Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, KS is having a group come to West Des Moines this Sunday to protest the performances of the Laramie Project at Valley High School. Now I’ve blogged about this before. I am certainly not in favor of this play. This is not the way to […]
I saw this video on YouTube. Wow! Praise Jesus!
Recently I preached at a church where I was trying to exhort the congregation toward a greater involvement with youth – starting at home, supporting the youth within the church, and then making an impact with kids in the community. I used illustrations that described struggles that not only high-risk youth face, but your average […]
Link to DM Register: Basu – Warning: Vander Plaats seeks to mix church and schools.. I tire of columnists like Basu and her ilk. They wrap themselves up in their definition of the First Amendment of the Constitution and cry “violation of Church and State!” I don’t know about you, but I have read the […]
This is the product of Kelvey & Lily’s boredom. Poor Mac! Now he has been emasculated both literally and figuratively!
Link to “Voucher group spends big in Iowa” – Des Moines Register I have to admit I’m biased. So absolutely yes! We have made a decision to home education, and we are in our sixth year of doing so. I will be the first to say it isn’t for everyone. There are definitely people who […]
Link to FOXNews.com – Group Files Complaint Against Minnesota Church Over Candidate Endorsement I wonder if they would have said something had it been a Democrat who was endorsed? Hmmmm? There has definitely been a double standard here.

There are additional merchandise coupons that can be used that day, as well as, […]
Life has been somewhat chaotic lately. The great exodus to Pleasant Hill has begun, and last night we reached a very important benchmark. All living creatures have now been relocated. In case some of you were wondering – no I did not leave Morgan in West Des Moines for the last few days. Instead our […]
This song brings back memories – I was Ft. Sam Houston in Texas the summer when it came out. Except the clubs that my buddies and I went to didn’t have the slugs :).
Link to RELEVANT MAGAZINE: “Lessons from a Crazy Church” I loved this article. A reminder that there is no such thing as a perfect church. As I pastor I tired of seeing families church hop from church to church to church. Something was always wrong with the churches. I wanted to scream, “Look in the […]
Link to FOXNews.com – Pirate Candidate Battles for Iowa Congressional Seat Was this in the Des Moines Register? If not I can understand why! Can you imagine this guy during a debate? “Arrrr, if it were me, I’d make lobbyists walk the plank, you savvy?” Just imagine if he wins. Congress will never be the […]
This is Weird Al’s parody of Chamillionarie’s “Ridin”. I think I like this song better.
Link to That They May Have Life Christianity Today This is the latest statement from the group Evangelicals & Catholics Together. While I haven’t always agreed with every statement that this group has put forth, I do appreciate the focus on what we have in common, and the fact we can have unity in Jesus […]
I’m not in a serious post mood. I found two of my favorite commercials on YouTube.com, I love the fact you can embed these in a blog. They are both EDS commercials.
