No big deal. GenJ just made it in USA Today...


Ok. Yeah. I'm super proud of all you GenJers. :-D 

Often those who need prayer the most are the hardest to pray for. Pray for them anyway.

I can't fathom Imperial units. No, really, I have no idea what a fathom is.

"I love Donald Trump. Ok, that’s a lie. The truth is that I find both Trump and Hillary Clinton difficult to love.

"So how is it possible to love people like this? How can I say that I love people who so consistently thwart the moral imperatives of my faith?

"Because if I don’t love them, I’m failing to live up to the very same standards that I am decrying them for not meeting."

Christians, this is the most convicting article I've read in a long time. Please take a moment and read it. The truth is real.

Marco Rubio Warns Christian Conservatives of the Costs of Gay Intolerance

“To love our neighbors we must recognize that many have experienced sometimes severe condemnation and judgment from some Christians,” he said. “They have heard some say that the reason God will bring condemnation on America is because of them — as if somehow God was willing to put up with adultery and gluttony and greed and pride, but now this is the last straw.” - Marco Rubio

Guys, truth and love cannot be separated. We are losing an opportunity to share the gospel with a generation because we have overlooked God's love while picking and choosing God's truth. We must return to basic truth and basic love. Because that is the beautiful gospel.

It is a good feeling to go from over 500 unread emails down to 29 in a few days.

I hope all my email responses made sense...

As a teacher, this could be scary, but that's the fun in asking. ;-)

What is a "Jeremiah" saying/phrase?

Last night, I dreamed that I joined a "Black Lives Matter" group. While it was just a dream, it was very vivid and was a reminder that sometimes showing unconditional love requires intentionally going out of your way and doing things outside your comfort zone.

Some say that #BlueLivesMatter, others that #BlackLivesMatter, others obstinately insist that #AllLivesMatter.

What I know is this: Each life--no matter the demographic--is valuable beyond price. I am deeply saddened by the violence that pervades the headlines in my home country as well as across the globe. It reminds me of how deeply we need the Prince of Peace.

Grieve with me for the lost. Seek justice. Love mercy. Walk humbly. Rise above the finger pointing. Love real people.

I’m not looking for an angel. I know that people make mistakes. I am more than willing to forgive mistakes. But the above list establishes a pattern where Trump habitually judges people by the sex, religion, physical appearance, and background. That kind of pattern is unacceptable in anyone. It is disqualifying in a leader.
