I have been hesitant to blog about this, but the thoughts simply won’t go away. At the Catalyst Conference I saw yet again something that has been bothering me about the church world. When you step back and look around, all the pastors of contemporary churches look the same. And all the worship leaders leaders looked the part as well.
I wanted to share a couple of memorable moments from Catalyst. One was crazy and the other was powerful. Professor Splash set a new world record high dive. He dove from a tower over 35 feet high into a pool with only 12 inches of water. Check out the video below. It’s another crazy world record from the Catalyst Conference.
Last week, I noticed that one of my friends on facebook had a couple of extra tickets to the U2 concert in Charlottesville. It worked out for Jennifer and I to go, so we decided to go on a big date. The tickets were general admission for the field and were sold during the presale for members of the fan
I was honored today to officiate a wedding for a former student. It’s something that I really enjoy doing and today was no exception. It’s great seeing old friends and seeing them take a huge step of faith. Since Jennifer and I have been married for 14 years now, I also feel like I can share some advice on what

Airy) So for our soup and salad luncheon after church Sunday, I fixed a huge pot of it.
I’ve seen this on several different blogs lately, and it definitely gives you a good laugh at the expense of the current church culture. Unfortunately, I thought of several youth pastors that I have heard speak. Youth Ministry is so much more than just being cool and relevant. It is all about building meaningful relationships with students as we teach
I look forward to seeing the videos every year from the National Youth Ministry Conference. The guys at Saddleback put some cool videos together. If you’re a youth worker, you want to check out this video. The announcment videos were stupid funny as well. Check them out here and here. thanks to Josh for sharing
If you are confused by the current lending and credit crisis, then watch this 10 minute video. It does a great job of describing what has happened. In a nutshell, the banks let people borrow more than they could afford, and when too many people defaulted, the banks got into big trouble. Psalm 37:21 (NLT) – The wicked borrow and
