A New Resource, What I’m Reading and Random Randomness.

 —  April 30, 2013 — 1 Comment


I’m really excited about this brand new junior high Sermon Series called, “Snapshots; Pictures of Jesus” In this four-week series students will look at Jesus the Human, Jesus the Shepherd, Jesus the Rebel and Jesus the Savior.


I’m about half-way through a great new book, Contagious; Why Things Catch On, by Jonah Berger. In a style similar to Malcolm Gladwell, Berger sets out to actually quantify the science of why ideas, trends, products etc. catch on and become so popular. So far I’m loving it!


* Yes, The Simply Youth Ministry Show is on a break. We may bring it back and we may not. It’s fun, people seem to enjoy it, but it’s a ton of work. We’ll see.

* So happy that Tim Tebow got released by the Jets! I have no idea what his future in the NFL looks like, but it looks brighter today than it did yesterday!

* Speaking of sports. Let’s talk baseball; or more specifically; why I’ve lost interest. I think I’ve lost interest in baseball for the same reason I’ve lost interest in Basketball and have never been interested in Hockey: The seasons are just too long! I like sports where every game in the regular season truly matters. I get excited for the playoffs, but always feel guilty for suddenly being excited about a sport that I’ve ignored for the previous 5 months.

  1. I miss the sym show! I haven’t missed a show. I guess I’ll have to go back and watch some old shows :)
