Who was the guilty? Who brought this upon Thee?
Alas, my treason, Jesus, hath undone Thee.
’Twas I, Lord, Jesus, I it was denied Thee!
I crucified Thee.

I'm correcting Confirmation tests on the Books of the Bible. With their permission, here are some of my favorite "best guesses" from my students: Demotry, Phitthore, 1 & 2 Ethastons, Chrons, Nakketum, Phonsts, and the always-inspirational book of Cacatras.

The senior pastor of Westboro Baptist Church, Fred Phelps Sr., died last night. People will be talking about it. People of God, what should we say? > http://bit.ly/1d5awQ4

Today my mind has changed. I'm a little embarrassed that it has taken this long. There is no way I can reconcile teams using names like "Indians" or "Redskins" with what I believe about racial reconciliation and the image of God that every human bears.

On the left is an actual confrontation between a Cleveland Indian fan and a Native American protester from the Cleveland Indians home opener last week. On the right is a prophetic cartoon by Lalo Alcaraz from 2002.

This was my tipping point.

This is powerful. Don't tell your kids to "follow their heart."

Written by our friend Jill Sandager: "You can follow lots of good things. Just please don't follow your heart. Your heart lies to you. It tells you that grass is greener. It tells you that your wants are needs. Your heart tells you that 'just this once will be fine.' It tells you you won't get caught. Your heart tells you that you deserve. It tells you that you are at the center of the universe."

If I had written a blog post regarding the Mark Driscoll apology letter, it probably would have sounded very much like this. Short, to the point, and worth reading. > http://bit.ly/1gzh4G4
