New Thru 30

January 5, 2010 Leave a comment

Youversion.com has really stepped up its game over the past few weeks. i’ve been digging it since it started – it’s a fantastic way to read & study the Bible. this morning my wife & I started a plan written up by Elevation church to read the New Testament in 30 days. i’m excited to do this, and even more so to read it with Bethany. should be pretty sweet!

If all you want is a little Jesus to “spiritualize” your life, a little extra God to keep you out of hell, you are missing out on the fullness of life you were created for.

the best our decade has to offer

December 12, 2009 Leave a comment

i don’t know who comes up with this garbage, but according to Yahoo! Music (the exclamation point is theirs):

of the past decade
best album – N’Sync’s No Strings Attachhed // ok, i’ll concede since they sold 10 million+ of this
best song – Mariah Carey’s We Belong Together // have i ever even heard this song? i don’t live in WV, so i should have heard it
best artist – Eminem // really?
best group – Nickelback // i just threw up in my mouth…oop, and again…

and this is why i don’t listen to the radio.

fresh tunes

December 7, 2009 Leave a comment

i’ve had it a while, but Anthony Evans‘ CD The Bridge is one of the freshest takes on a lot of classic contemporary worship tunes out there. he makes some songs that i’m pretty sure i never wanted to hear again just plain hot.

quoting [Matt Chandler]

We fight against sin because it dishonors God, opposes Christ, grieves the Spirit & separates us from intimacy with our Lord

i could stand to read that every day. Matt is the Pastor of the Village Church is TX, and the kind of Christian husband, father, and leader i would hope to be like.
