Karate Kid Mentorship
Yes, right now, as I type this, I’m watching The Karate Kid and I must admit it is touching me in all the right places intellectually and spiritually.

The relationship between...

Something New is Stirring
A new wave is coming. It is different than the last. The tide is changing as the moon is shifting through the night sky. There are similarities to the last moon, but they are not the same. There is something new stirring; this is unmistakable. What is stirring? What is growing? What is moving? Where is it going? When is it going? How is it going? What is the plan? What is the purpose...

Non-Rapture Map - Apocalypse 2011 Version →
My girlfriend sent this to me. It’s pretty epic. Let’s all track the non-rapture. Let us celebrate the the non-rapture. Let us pray for those who don’t know Jesus. Let us ask that they know Jesus, long before Jesus decides to return and restore the world.
The more interviews I hear of Rob Bell, the less I like the way he’s been attacked. Disagree if you want to, but don’t call him a heretic please - especially if you haven’t read the book (and already had a prejudice towards him).
What a Great Birthday Present →
