I read on Thinkerup about some quotes that Tony Campolo has made in the past. For those of you who don’t know Dr. Campolo has been a professor of sociology at Eastern University in St. David’s, PA, and has been very influential in youth ministry circles. He lately has been known more for being a […]
When we justify the killing of a fully human child because of severe, congenital defect, we are not making a case for abortion; we’re promoting something much more chilling. Partial-term Abortion Is Not about Abortion. (read more) Great article by Greg Koukl of Stand to Reason on Townhall.com on partial-term abortion. I highly encourage you […]
Cheryl and I decided that we would attend Good Friday services that are closer to home (Valley Church is 50 miles round trip from our home in Pleasant Hill). I was checking out different churches to see where we would go. One church I checked into (which will remain nameless) brought to mind a few […]
As some Jr. High students in Idaho learned, you have to pay up! Judging from some of the meals I’ve eaten at school as a student, member of faculty or as a youth pastor coming on campus I wonder if the schools shouldn’t have to pay the kids on occassion? No matter how you feel […]
Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land until the ninth hour. And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” that is, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” And some of the bystanders, hearing it, said, “This man is […]
This spring is turning out to be pretty busy. Cheryl’s parents are coming out tomorrow to celebrate Easter with us, and to celebrate her birthday. They will be with us for a few days in which we are going to install an up-flush system down in our basement in order to put a bathroom in […]
My wife turns one year older today. If you want to know how old, go to my Facebook profile or Blogger profile and subtract one. Let’s just say it is the 5th anniversary of her 29th birthday. I love you Cheryl! Happy Birthday!
For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night he was betrayed took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, “This is my body which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way also he […]
To follow up on yesterday’s post on the outrageous stunt Burlington Township High School in New Jersey pulled last month, I want to encourage you to read Michelle Malkin’s article in Townhall.com – “Whitewashing Jihad in the Schools”. The NEA and public school educators who embrace their liberal ideology have completely lost their collective mind.
Micheal Johnson of the Alliance Defense Fund thinks so. Read his column at Townhall.com. As always, I’d love to read your comments.
From the Christian Post: Micah Challenge – a global advocacy initiative of the World Evangelical Alliance,which represents more than 420 million Christians, and the Micah Network –is speaking out against the situation in the south African nation which, among other problems, holds the record for the world’s highest inflation rate – 1,700 percent. “The current […]
This article in the Chicago Tribune gives some background into Barack Obama’s first campaign and some insight into Chicago politics. Pretty interesting.
“Behold, the hour is coming, indeed it has come, when you will be scattered, each to his own home, and will leave me alone. Yet I am not alone, for the Father is with me. I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have […]
For making it as a finalist in the 3-A Iowa State Jazz Championships. Some of you may not be aware, but I am working with a youth group in Pella, and one of my kids is in the band. In the Des Moines Register tonight… Class 3A Finalist: Independence A Finalist: Pella 3rd: Harlan 4th: […]
I check out the Huffington Post pretty frequently so that my tens of readers don’t have to dirty themselves doing so. Ocassionally while immersing myself in the latest liberal “wisdom” I find a post that I just screams “blog me”. Tonight’s winner is a post by Rev. Ron Stief. Stief is a ordained minister in […]
This is outrageous! On Mar. 22, 2007, Burlington Township High School, located in New Jersey about 25 miles northeast of Philadelphia, ran a Columbine-style hostage drill which featured two extremist Christians as the gunmen. As the news spread since the mock exercise, Christians have begun to accuse the school district of Christian bigotry. Gee, I’m […]
