Out of curiousity I wanted to see what ten songs came up first when I randomly shuffled my music on my ipod. A couple of bluegrass songs popped up. There are probably not a whole lot of people who listen to a mix of bluegrass and CCM, but I actually like good fast bluegrass. I was also surprised that several

Saw this over at Catalyst blog. As churches we had an awesome opportunity to connect hurting people to God, but how good of a job did we do? Barna Research studies reveal despite an intense surge in religious activity and expression in the weeks immediately following 9/11, the faith of Americans is virtually indistinguishable today, 5 years later, compared to

Check out the new ipods at Apple’s website. A 30gig and 80gig video ipod and new nanos in different colors with 2,4, and 8 gig models. I was hoping for video playback in the nanos, but we just got pretty colors in an aluminum case with longer battery life. Itunes received some new stuff as well. Most notably movies, in

Here’s a good definition of truth from the book, Breaking the Missional Code. “Truth is not a set of rules to be obeyed, mysteries to be known or evidences to be mastered, but Christ, by whom we know and are known. Truth is not discovered, it is revealed in relationship to both the head and the heart. Therefore, Truth is

We were back at Cornerstone yesterday. I got to do the welcome and announcements and body life part of the service. I’m pretty comfortable in front of large groups when I’m teaching, but I really don’t like doing announcements. I’m just not a people person. Of course, there were a few minor technical difficulties. Our long video snake to the

I’m back at work today. Mondays are always rough, but especially when you have been gone a week. We had a great trip to the beach. Good weather, great food, and fun times with the kids. It’s so important for me to get to spend some serious time with Emma, Luke, & Drew. It seems like every year you have

I got the chance to do some more reading during our trip to the beach. I’m about halfway through Breaking the Missional Code by Ed Stetzer and David Putman. I have really enjoyed reading through it so far. At first, it seems like such a simple concept, your church should function as a missionary to the culture you live in.

I don’t know how it happened this week. But I’ve got a new name. You see, back when Emma was little she used to call me “Big Strong Daddy”. That was the type of name to make a dad proud. If I were a superhero I would want to be called Big Strong Daddy, or MuscleMan or Dynamic Daring Dad,

I also posted this on our church website. Some food for thoughtAs a church, we would all agree that we are committed to developing fully devoted followers of Christ. In planning the use of our property, we need to think about how our land will help us to reach others, make disciples, and worship God. Our land should definitely benefit

It’s a sad day in the Morris household after we learned today of Steve Irwin’s death. Our prayers go out to his family as they go through such a tragic loss. My kids have always loved the “Croc Hunter” and I have enjoyed his shows over the years. We even have the dvd of the full length movie he did.

We’re kicked back at the beach enjoying life this week. Check out the pics from the balcony of our room where we’re staying. We’re in a corner room that has an incredible view both directions. And when I fired up the laptop, we even have free wi–fi, life is good! Went to a good church service this morning at Pawleys
