Podcast Update

Posted: July 23, 2008 in Living Stones Church, Preaching

Just a quick note to those who have been asking.  The podcasts of the past three weeks have been a little off.

July 6th – we only got half of the message (it is at

July 13th – we only got the last seven minutes of the message.

July 20th – we didn’t record at all.

I’m not naming names…yet…but it appears to be an insider job 🙂 .  Could be software problems, could be human resource problems…but…we have problems.  Sorry for the inconvenience.  We’ll be back online soon!

So, to my Chinese listeners…I’m sorry.  You’d be surprised at home many people in China are listening to the messages.  Seriously…I can’t figure it out.  But the host site of the podcast gives me the statistics of what countries are listening to the messages (or at least downloading them).  China, India, Hong Kong, Canada, France, Germany…kind of weird!

Traffic Nightmares

Posted: July 23, 2008 in South Bend

Driving to work this morning and I’m passing through the worst intersection in the world (slight exaggeration 🙂 ) right now – Miami & Ireland and there is a gaping hole in the middle of the street (apparently washed away and caved in on Sunday morning during the rain) and water is just spewing out.  That doesn’t look right!

How much longer on this construction?!  It is miserable.  We (Living Stones Church) even paid for a billboard to go up on Miami and Ireland and if everyone is in their right mind from the south side of South Bend they would avoid this intersection like the plague

It feels like there is more construction going on in our streets than at any time I can remember.  Didn’t the city just say it was going to layoff/fire 200 employees in the next two years including firefighters, police officers, and closing of major parks and recreation centers?
