I love Scot McKnight mostly because he is emergent without being a hipster. He is hosting the emerging conversation/book promotion tour when it goes down to Austin and posted a Top Ten List of why you should go to an emergent event. It’s killer funny.
Here’s the video we presented to the church highlighting our team in new orleans.
I haven’t blogged nearly any enough lately – I am having a little case of the burn-outs and trying to work through that. Here’s some preliminary reports on my summer though:
I got to be the speaker at our conference junior high camp this year and it was such a great time. I really enjoyed seeing God work in the lives othe tweens and being able to lead them through some great scriptures. I think many people don’t give them as much credit as they deserve – in some moments they are astoundingly mature and focused people – the problem is many people can’t get over the moments that they are wild, crazy and not thinking consequentially.
I loved it though – I was probably most nervous just speaking in front of my peer youth pastors – that’s a little more intimidating, but they were really encouraging and it was great to experience this all.
Just got back from helping rebuild New Orleans. This is a video that Cody, one of our sophmore boys made. I know Cody made it because of all the flying scenes – Cody loves airplanes.
here’s what a group did today – can’t write much since it’s after lights out – but the kids are doing so great – it’s hotter and humid than imaginalbe, but everyone is really sticking to it – later
here’s our first shots in new orleans
So I saw this link for a friend wheel on Marko’s blog and did mine and I love it. Facebook is way better than myspace for fun and really cool networking – everyone around here still uses myspace, but facebook is better. At the very least, there’s less porn, which always a bonus!
Here’s my friend-wheel.It’s a list of all my peeps on facebook and their connections to each other. It kinda groups my life into free-flowing groups with which I interact.
