- At the beginning of the season, I predicted Tim Tebow would be starting for Denver by week 5. Turns out I was mostly right….he started the 2nd half of week 5 and quickly showed he is Denver’s best option. Now I just have to avoid the temptation to start him over Matthew Stafford inmmy fantasy league (a league I am currently dominating, by the way).
- Had an interesting experience this weekend. We are in a four-week series called, “God Is…” last week, our lesson was “God is…LOVE”, and this week we countered with “God is…JUST”. It was a full blown lesson on God’s justice…his perfect and fair ways of judging. It was pretty heavy stuff! Over the course of the weekend, at least a dozen students sought me or members of our team out to talk about it, ask questions, and share how much they had learned. Maybe you are such a great teacher that you get these reactions all the time…not me. It was a pleasant surprise!
- last night we had the team over to our house to say farewell to Brian and Bekah Schwanbeck, two former interns who served on our JH and HS teams, fell in love, got married and have been faithful serving as the part time youth pastors at one of our regional campuses. They have accepted a junior high position at a great church in South Carolina. Last night was a wonderful reminder of the joys of serving on a team that truly does love each other.
- the current episode of The Simply Youth Ministry Show is my favorite yet! Our guest is Gary Garcia….who has served at the same church for 20 years. checkmout this episode to glean some wisdom from Gary. You will glean some stuff from me and Jake, too, but it can’t be described as wisdom. Check it out right here.
