Obama, McCain and Bears, O My!



As a former journalist I find myself pretty excited every four years when our national elections roll around. It’s pretty sick I know, but I scour the newspapers daily, trade in the ol’ IPOD music for talk radio for a few weeks and tap network news every morning like an addict jonesing for the morning hit.

Someone help me…

Dog eat dog politics, biting commercials and round the clock reporting all seem to get my juices flowing. There’s nothing quite as exhilarating as a super-revealing expose about the embarrassing third grade shenanigans of some candidate that you can only get on this network, you won’t want to miss it, tonight at nine!

On Vision

Last night I had the opportunity to speak to a small group of college students called Christian Challenge (check them out on line http://www.hutchchallenge.net/.

They meet every Monday night at Venue 302 in Hutch and it’s always awesome to be with them. On this occassion I had the opportunity to teach on the issue of vision (or God-given direction in life).

Hope it’s helpful to some of you. Many blessings.

Here’s a video-blog update on the issue of fear and courage. It focuses on one of my favorite verses from Isaiah 26:3.

You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you.

The Holy Bible : New International Version. 1996, c1984 (Is 26:3). Grand Rapids: Zondervan.

Thank God for theory of evolution

As one of my boys would say, “Today was super cool!”

This Monday morning I began teaching for Sterling College, a course called Servant Leadership, to about 200 incoming freshmen and transfer students.

I only had the chance to personally speak to about 15 or 20 students on this first day, but I was reminded how great it is to hang out with them.  Their  passion for life, their questions about all things spiritual and fundamental, their desire to leave a mark on the world, and their ability to live off the dollar menu at McDonald’s…  everyday!

They are amazing. Continue reading “Thank God for theory of evolution”

We all need it…

You are truly a child of the 80s if you immediately went Rick Springfield after reading the title of today’s blog and started singing… The Human Touch.

(Here’s the YOUTUBE video from 1983 if you really wanna go back to high school, but only go after you finish this blog and get your spiritual Wheaties!)

Today I had the opportunity to speak at Central Christian School here in Hutchinson for their weekly chapel service and I wanted to share it with the CrossEyedLife World. I spoke on the issue of the human touch in our Christian faith and was amazed at how well received this message was by those junior high and high schoolers. Continue reading “We all need it…”
