The thing I love about this video is that there is a bit of Barabbas in us all. I was reminded about this while walking the streets of my city yesterday inviting people to come to our Easter EGGstravaganza.

Have you ever been robbed? It is a terrible feeling. It’s not only that you lose money or things, the offense goes much deeper than that. When we were living in Kansas City we went through a very trying time and in that time, my truck got broken into and we had thousands of dollars of sound equipment that belonged to the church I was pastoring at stolen. And then I got ripped off on an ebay scam. I had been saving my money for such a long time to buy a new bow, and this guy took the money and never sent the bow, and I filed all the right forms, and there was just no way to get it back then.

As a teenager I shadowed with my aunt who worked with dental surgeons. It was an amazing day, and I really enjoyed it and I learned a few things. 

1. Halitosis is a job hazard in that line of work. 
2. I probably didn’t want to be a dentist. 
3. Panic is powerful.

Faith is...

We talk a lot about faith in church, but what is it?

Signs & Fruit

In our town, in an area with the plenty of visibility and high traffic, there are two very well known businesses that have horrible signs. If you drove by and judged them based on signage alone you would think that they aren’t doing very well, or even that they have gone out of business, but that is not the case. These are businesses that have been in our community for generations, which probably accounts for why they can afford to have such awful looking signs. In truth they are doing well, and aren’t about to disappear, even though just looking at their signs makes you think that maybe they already have. It’s not that the owners want to have bad looking signs, and it probably isn’t that they can’t afford to fix the problem, the truth is I doubt they realize that things look so bad.

I had just started one of the most unusual jobs I have ever had; I was working at a funeral home. It was an amazing job and I am still very close with all my friends there. Working in a funeral home in a small town is really a lot more fun than you could ever imagine. Of course you do work to maintain the solemnity of the moment, but there are many points of brevity along the way, especially in the case of a Believer who has lived a long and fruitful life.

Life Changer

The most perfect moment of a perfect day.

This is by far my favorite picture from our wedding day. It was the only one we didn't pose for, and I didn't expect our photographer to take it but I am so glad he did because he captures the most perfect moment of a perfect day.
