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

Snapshots

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!

RANDOM RANDOMNESS:

* 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 :)
