Craving the New Testament

Posted: September 30, 2010 in Uncategorized

This year I am reading through the Bible using my favorite online Bible program Р (you should too).  They have a zillion different reading plans (this could be a slight exaggeration).

This year I decided to do the Chronological one.  It takes me chronologically through the Bible.  I have loved it.  I have really appreciated the intertwining of the books of history with its accompanying prophetic literature and Psalms.  It has been great.

Only one down side. ¬†I finally finished the Old Testament today. ¬†3/4 of the year is over and ALL of the readings have been from the Old Testament. ¬†That will tell you the size and scope of the Old Testament. ¬†Tomorrow I finally start the New Testament. ¬†That’s good – because I’m craving it.

She Got the Job

Whose wife was hired for the permanent substitute position at Monroe Primary Center?  MY wife!!

Congratulations baby!!!! ¬†You’re now a Monarch (and not just married to one) ūüôā

Just a reminder (if you still need one) that THIS SUNDAY the Living Stones Church is canceling our three normal services (9:30, 11:30, & 5:30) to meet AT ONE TIME 11:00 a.m. to go serve the South Side of South Bend.

Just park in the lot, and then make your way to the front yard where we will all gather for just a song or two, pass a chicken bucket around for an offering (although I recommend doing it online here. ¬†I LOVE the online giving. ¬†So easy.), and then having some final instructions…and then taking off to serve!!

This is a first for us. ¬†And I’m thrilled we are doing it. ¬†I love the idea of hundreds of LivingStoners offering up worship to God by loving the neighborhood. ¬†Anyone is welcome to join us so if you have friends or family that are interested – bring them along!

It isn’t necessary, but if you purchased a “I *heart* South Side” t-shirt – wear it on Sunday.

For a list of places to serve…check out this list here. ¬†We even provided some service possibilities that will allow your children to help and participate as well.

SEE YOU SUNDAY @ 11:00 A.M.  It is going to be great!!!

I know this is THREE DAYS late.  And for some of my Sam I Am readers you may have been relieved Wednesday morning not seeing a blog post about Biggest Loser.

I watched it. ¬†I didn’t post anything because I didn’t feel like it. ūüôā ¬†I was moved by the stories. ¬†But I HATE when they show you three stories that are moving and then tell you that one isn’t going to make it. ¬†Now, I know that this is Biggest Loser and in the end, all of the “eliminated” might show back up or get a chance to get on the show. ¬†But it won’t be all of them. ¬†I hate hearing a story, being moved by it, rooting for them, and then it’s over. ¬†Then I just feel hacked off. ¬†And it is hard to watch a show where you want to be excited for two, but then are hacked off because one got eliminated. ¬†So I didn’t feel like it. ¬†Anyone else watch the season premiere? ¬†If so, anyone have any thoughts?

Good-Bye American Idol

Posted: September 24, 2010 in American Idol

It wasn’t for everyone. ¬†But my family enjoyed watching it. ¬†But now, I’m saying good-bye. ¬†Good-bye American Idol. ¬†I’m not speaking on behalf of my family, they may still choose to watch you. ¬†But, I won’t be making the transition with you to the post-Simon years (if you get years). ¬†Your star is fading. ¬†I’m decluttering my TV list. ¬†I may catch a YouTube clip if there is another “Pants on the Ground” phenomenon. ¬†But otherwise…
