For many months now I have sensed a bit of guilt over not publishing much on this here blogsite. But, I realized that I generate content every week in the form of a delivered sermon. AND, if you wander on over here, you might be interested. So, I plan to regularly post my sermons here … More Sermon – Big Dreams
Well, yesterday, I got back to preaching regularly. This time, it is in Oxford, NC for my new call to serve as pastor to Oxford Baptist Church. It was a great Sunday. The children sang and led in worship. Natalie, Cam and I joined the church. It was Pentecost Sunday. All in all it was … More Back to Work!
When we made our arrangements to come to Oxford this weekend, we wanted to make sure we had plenty of time to get everything done since our next trip here would be our move. Since we got everything finished early, we were able to take Cam to Duke this morning and found really cheap hockey … More Indoctrination
This morning in the car on the way to school, Cam shared some of his opinions on music with me. It began when we landed on an XM station playing the Phil Phillips song. Cam asked, ‘Is this Mumford?’ I replied ‘no,’ but thought, ‘well, kind of.’ He said he was confused because it sounded … More My Son on Music
While I cannot quite throw $100 at this Kickstarter project today, don’t think I’m not thinking about it. You should check out their video if you, like me: 1. love a charged iPhone 2. drink lots of hot coffee 3. or, when you are not drinking hot coffee, it is cold coffee or water This … More We all need these…
I thought I would say, like Led Zepplin, that it’s Been A Long Time since I rocked the blog. And, well, it has. This morning, the sermon has a reference and a quote to a recent David Crowder*Band Song, Let Me Feel You Shine. It’s a nice song. If you don’t know it yet, you … More It’s been a long time…
People tease me about going to the coffee shop often. It’s ok. I don’t mind. But today, after I dropped off the recycling in Mid-Town, I dropped by the Starbucks for a free fill of my January mug. I don’t normally go to this particular shop often. But, when I got to the counter the … More Parenthood and Coffee Shops
Christmas night has left me sick. I’m not sure what it is or how I got it but I think I am just exhausted from all that last week required. So, I’m late. This is a Sesame Street ornament from my childhood that has made it to our tree. What’s not to love about Big … More 12 Ornaments – day 12 (late)
Christ is born. Now we wait for Santa to come. It’s crazy, I know. But at least this Santa has made a nice wardrobe change, crossing over to the blue side of things. Merry Christmas to you. And, if Santa cares about colleges, I suspect that he would be a Duke fan.
Before this day gets away, I offer you day 10 and a nativity scene from 10,000 Villages. It is a cute little thing and that’s about all there is to say I suppose. Our son has taken to calling his toy nativity set an ‘activity set’ which seems right. We are on the edge of … More 12 Ornaments – Day 10
