Not a good day to be a denomination (or appear in the eyes of the world to be a “denomination” even if you think you are not…that is for my Church of Christ friends who still live in denial about what they are 🙂 ).  Not a good day to be viewed as taking over the political system for Jesus via the Republican party.  But not a bad day for faith.  Interesting.


Read article here.

Read Numbers 5:11-31.  Seriously.  Go do it!


Fair warning – don’t marry a guy who struggles with excessive jealousy.

Someday I’m going to preach a message series out of Leviticus and Numbers…just for my benefit!!!

I still have so much more to learn.

If I Were Mayor

It’s time to play, “If I Were the Mayor of South Bend…”

If I were the Mayor of South Bend, I would…

release an Assistant Mayor and triple the size of Code Enforcement.


Here is the insert that was in the bulletin this past Sunday with eight quick on-ramps by way of volunteering.  You may have needed some time to think through some of the possibilities.  Following after Jesus who serves, let me encourage you to consider the opportunity to get involved here at Living Stones Church!!  If you missed the chance you can sign up at this link as well!!!

What happens when a Pastor has too much time on his hands 🙂

Introduced at the C3 Conference last week:

Making Music After 62 Years of Marriage

Posted: February 23, 2010 in marriage

This couple checked into the Mayo Clinic, saw a piano in the atrium, and gave an impromptu performance.  They’ve been married for 62 YEARS!!!  He turned 90 last February.  I love this.

Intention of Obedience

Posted: February 23, 2010 in Confession, Discipleship

“The idea that you can trust Christ for the hereafter but have no intention to obey him now is an illusion generated by a widespread unbelieving ‘Christian culture.’ In fact, you can no more trust Jesus and not intend to obey him than you can trust your doctor and not intend to follow his or her advice.  If you don’t intend to follow the advice, you simply don’t trust the person.”  – Dallas Willard

Of course I’m just jealous because I don’t have the hair to do this…but apparently the “Adam Lambert” look is becoming a popular look among worship pastors. 🙂

Texas Sighting

Car in front of us.  You can’t see it very well in the picture but it has a pink bumper sticker that says, “Yes…I’m a b*&#ch, just not your b*@&ch”  and next to that…the Jesus fish symbol.  Nice.
