Well, I was disappointed that my Bears lost, but some of the commercials were entertaining. Bud Light has to be the King of Super Bowl Ads. Here are a few of my favorites that they put out this year. Just a disclaimer, this is NOT a endorsement of their product, just their creativity!
I discovered this Nooma video clip on You Tube. Rob Bell, the founding pastor at Mars Hill Bible Church in Grandville, MI, does a great job challenging us to rethink what it means to be rich. We need to reach out to those who are improverished with the love of Christ. With clean water and […]
Interesting post on the Evangelical Outpost blog.
From the article at the Christian Post: Hmmm. Ridiculous? What do you think? It seems weird to allow bars to show it, but have problems with churches that show it on the big screen. Also one of the churches mentioned was asking for a admission to cover the cost of food, not compensation to watch […]
From an article in the Chicago Tribune. Governor Perry’s actions and what Merck is doing could influence what is done in Iowa as well. I have some real reservations about this on a variety of different levels. Will this encourage more girls to engage in pre-marital sex? Does this infringe on parental rights, another example […]
Mary Katharine Ham recently posted her weekly “HamNation” video that exposes a not so kind and gentle side of environmentalists gone amuck.
Cheryl discovered that Morgan had decided to do a little video work with our digital camera. He shot five 30-second slient clips (since the camera doesn’t record sound). Interesting. This definitely confirms what his mother and I already believed, that the boy is a little off kilter. For some reason he has a tremendous aversion […]
Ok, looking at my Weather Bug – it’s 13 degrees Farenheit in Des Moines, the low tonight is supposed to be -7. The high tomorrow is only 5 above zero. Our high on Sunday is 5, and our low is -10 Curiousity got the better of me, and I checked out Nome, AK on the […]
UCC President to Speak at Gay Megachurch – The leader United Church of Christ will welcome the Cathedral of Hope, a predominately gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender megachurch in Dallas, into the United Church of Christ this Sunday. 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.
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, […]
