Who's Responsible

Okay, I want to know who’s responsible – someone has obviously mashed the fast forward button on life and it’s stuck there.

I truly have no idea where the days go. I have enjoyed my days recently – getting to catch up with some friends, doing some yard work and a little real work – but truthfully, time just seems to be moving much faster these days. I remember always hear “old people” talk like this – uh oh – this must mean…

Anyway, lots going on in my life, and here’s one thing I’ve spent a bunch of time thinking about lately. What’s love? Some say it’s an emotion, others say a feeling, still others say it’s choice. I think it's all of these things. I certainly feel love towards some and others I must choose to love.

The Bible’s main focus is love and 1 Corinthians 13 is the famous “love chapter.” I’ve done something I don’t often do and committed this entire chapter to memory (it’s not THAT long). And the reason I have is because I’m really trying to figure out how to fulfill what Jesus said was the most important thing in life – love God and love people. If I’m going to attempt this, I think it’s a good idea to know how God defines love. So, 1 Corinthians 13 is where I’ve been for a while now.

How about looking this up for yourself. Even if your not a religious person (which, by the way, I’m not either – put that’s a whole different blog), your life is impacted by this crazy little thing called love. So, check it out and let me know what you think!

1,000 Visitors

Wow! This blog site hits the 1,000 visitors mark today. Which means the six of you that actually read this have been here a lot :-).

Once again I find myself apologizing for not posting recently - time is flying by!!

I am reading a new book called unChristian. It's based on a three year study by the Barna Group and looks at how Christians and Christianity are viewed by our culture. The primary group studied are those ages 16 - 29, but it also provides information from older adults.

Whether you would consider yourself a Christian or not (BTW about 70% of you probably do), it's an honest look at the "Christian culture" which has a real image problem in the United States today.

I'll post more about this soon (and probably in video). Thanks for being patient during my "busy time" away from the blog!

Hey All,

I have been on the road a lot for the past couple of weeks and finishing up another seminary class. Sorry I have not posted in a long time.

I'm still here and plan on getting back on schedule with at least weekly posts this week.
