Weekly Review January 9, 2009


From the news reports it sounds like Tebow has reached either superhero status or sainthood--of course, in my opinion as an official Gator Hater (yes folks I dislike Florida more than Alabama--be glad to share the story if you ever want to hear it) he can't be a saint and play for Florida. But there has been much discussion of John 3:16 being written under his eyes. Is it a sign of great evangelism on his part or Bibilical illiteracy on ours?

Jenny is striving to be a good steward and we should all consider following her example.

At "Stuff Christians Like" some great indications of where youth might be called to serve. And here are my results for Senior (or in my case--sole) pastor. I only scored 2 out of 7, guess I should find a new job!:
1. Do you know where the secret bathroom is? There's a secret bathroom! You mean I don't have to share the bathroom with all those 3 year olds?
2. Do you want to own a Cadillac? No! I want a two seater Mercedes Benz convertible!
3. Do you often get annoyed at how childish your Youth pastor acts? What youth pastor?
4. Do you consider the church pot luck fine dining? Yes and I want the recipes!
5. Do you own more than 5 suits? Suits?
6. Is your motto, “When two or more have gathered take up an offering?” YES!!
7. Do you have your own special version of math that involves rounding everything by large sums? No! Why bother with numbers if you are going to make them up. (It's the analyst in me)

The final article in Scott McKnight's summary of Adam Hamilton's book: Love those Radical Centrists!

Steve begins again and again! I wonder how many of us have heard God's voice at Sacred Heart!

Can you tell the difference between articles in Men's Health Magazines and books in the Christian bookstore?

Shake it like a Polaroid picture!

Could you live like Jesus for a year?

The hubby and I were discussing the fact that Tebow is a walking, talking cliche. I thought he was straight out of Friday Night Lights but now I think maybe more like out of a Mickey Rooney-Judy Garland movie. "Come on gang! We can win this!"
