BlogSwap 2 Update

I just sent an email to everyone who indicated an interest in participating in the second BlogSwap. If you indicated interest and did not receive the email, please let me know and I’ll get it to you ASAP. From the 8 people who indicated interest in the first BlogSwap we have doubled to 16 for this one. Of course that does not mean that all 16 will actually take the time to write something, but I can hope!

Here is our subject for this time around:

I thought it might be interesting for us to write about an aspect of Christianity that we may have struggled with and have had a difficult time accepting. Perhaps it is a specific passage in the Bible or a specific doctrine. It could be helpful to others to explain how we came to peace with our struggles. Or perhaps we have not yet come to that place of peace. Either way, let’s be transparent about the struggles we have faced in allowing ourselves to be transformed by God.

So hopefully that will generate some good responses. If you don’t know what I’m going on about here, feel free to check this post and join in the fun if you like.

And now it’s time for me to get all prettied-up for the Switchfoot concert tonight!

    Young Man, Don’t Even Make that First Sports Bet

    It’s impossible to avoid the advertising and impossible to miss the claims. Sports are great, they say, but do you know what makes them even better? Adding a little wager. Sports are exciting, they say, but even more exciting when you’ve got a bit of money riding on them. So why not enjoy them all…

  • Not a Life of Ease

    It’s Not a Life of Ease

    You can’t read the New Testament and fail to understand that the Christian life was never meant to be a life of ease. Each of us will encounter adversity and adversaries, and each of us will have to wage war against our fearsome foes— the world, the flesh, and the devil. Then, each of us…
