Well, April 19th came and went without incidet.

That's a relief.

Its one of those days, by instinct, I turn on CNN just expecting horrible news.

In 1993, it's when the standoff in Waco at the Branch Davidian compound ended. And, more importantly to me, when SD Governor George S. Mickelson was killed in a plane crash

In 1994, it's when Tim McVeigh blew up the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City.

April 20th has a rough history as well, as the date of Columbine.

Adventures in Missing the Point: How the Culture-Controlled Church Neutered the Gospel

Making Sense of Church: Eavesdropping on Emerging Conversations About God, Community, and Culture

just ordered these from amazon :)
Online RPS

Yes, online rock, paper, scissors. I especially enjoyed the math and theory behind why it must remain a trinity, and why dynamite cannot be added to the game.

someone has too much time on their hands. or on their fingers I guess.

so if I were to place an ad for those seeking work, here's what I was thinking of writing.

Culture-savvy, Creative, get-things-done Guy Seeks Meaningful Opportunity

Does your organization need a faith-infused, culturally sensitive creative-type to get things done? Look no further. An award-winning journalist with a heart for the emerging church, and the postmodern generation is seeking not just a job, but a career where his passion for truth, beauty, and love come together.

Photography? I can do that. Video shooting / editing? The Associated Press sure thinks so, from all the awards they've handed out. Youth ministry? Check. Six years and counting. Web design? More than a decade of experience. Small groups? You bet. College ministry? I know a thing or two, having been in leadeship through my four years. Ever run a music festival? Sure have. Know how to build relationships? Yep. And that's just the beginning. Eagle scout? How'd you know? Plus I'm a music fan (U2, Moby), avid reader (C.S. Lewis), movie buff, and have even known people who have been on Survivor and The Real World (true story).

Sounds like someone you want on your team? Of course!

Up from the grave he arose;
with a mighty triumph o'er his foes;
he arose a victor from the dark domain,
and he lives forever, with his saints to reign.
He arose! He arose! Hallelujah! Christ arose!

If you haven't readThe Gallery of Regrettable Food by James Lileks, please do. This is a coffee table book I'm proud to own.

If you're not sure what it is, check out

The site that inspired the book

And while I'm recommending things, U2 Go Home - Live From Slane Castle is a great DVD. I need to watch it again

I'm now part of Who Reads What @ blogs4God

where you can see what various bloggers have in their libraries.

Everytime I list a book here, it will end up on that list.

So here are some favorites I've read:

The Sacred Romance: Drawing Closer to the Heart of God by Brent Curtis and John Eldredge

The Great Divorce by C.S. Lewis

Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis
Up Off Your Knees: Preaching the U2 Catalog

Is another one of the books I've ben reading. Interesting stuff. It's sermons based on U2 songs, which while not practical, has been enjoyable.
