Football And Fun

Like most of the U.S. population, I watched the Super Bowl with some friends Sunday evening.  It was the first NFL game I had watched all season. This was not because I don’t enjoy sports, mind you.  But, because I LOVE sports, I determined that I needed to fast from watching the NFL this season.Continue reading “Football And Fun”

My Top Ten for 2011

Each of us have our different tastes in music, books and movies, but most of us enjoy music and books and or movies.  I might read a book that I find particularly stirring or one that impacts me and my wife will think it’s just “okay.” So, your list might match mine or be completelyContinue reading “My Top Ten for 2011”

Live Like You Were Dying (Wait! I’m not done yet!)

Sunday we finished, what I believe will prove to be, a pivotal series in the life of our church. And I find myself asking the question “Where do I go from here?” I feel like I’m just starting to apply these principles into the fabric of my everyday living and I’m not ready to putContinue reading “Live Like You Were Dying (Wait! I’m not done yet!)”

Bonhoeffer

Well, I finally finished reading Bonhoeffer. It is a long book, but it didn’t feel long. Eric Metaxas did a wonderful job of giving it flow and of course, Bonhoeffer’s life itself kept me turning the pages. I was equally enlightened and challenged in my faith and my call to interact with my world aroundContinue reading “Bonhoeffer”

Next Read – Bonhoeffer

Finally finished JESUS MANIFESTO and it was worth taking my time. So full of words that point the soul in the direction of Jesus Christ. As a worship leader, I long to point to Jesus week after week – more so now, after reading this book, than ever. Interesting that in this book were severalContinue reading “Next Read – Bonhoeffer”

Is Jesus Center?

I’ve really been enjoying this book over the last month. Some terrific theology can be found in this book which takes deliberate steps to restate Christ as the center of our faith. While reading this book, I have been very encouraged and affirmed, as I’m reminded of who I am “In Christ.” I remember beingContinue reading “Is Jesus Center?”

Fun, Fellowship and Rock-n-Roll

I’m still contemplating the devotion, talents and skills of our members involved in Phil’s Diner 2. This past weekend was an awesome time of fun, fellowship and rock-n-roll. I enjoyed that our church was saying to our friends and neighbors “Just come and have fun with us.” And FUN it was indeed. Now we areContinue reading “Fun, Fellowship and Rock-n-Roll”
