Emergency Room
January 12, 2009, 4:15 pm

So I just have to rant for a little bit.  Last friday my grandmother in law fell and broke her face practically.  She didn’t literally break her face, but just imagine an eighty year old lady that got punched in the face by chuck liddell.  That pretty much describes how she looked.  So obviously because she was doing so rough we went to the “emergency room”  I know it is called the emergency room, but I’m not so sure they actually mean what there slogan is pushing for.  Onward we pressed into the emergency room, and my wife and I are both pretty nervous about all this because she looks pretty rough.  When we finally got a room it wasn’t until five or five and half hours later that we left the emergency room.

FIVE AND A HALF HOURS!!!  I was so upset, and then to top it all of the emergency room was not even that busy.  I don’t know I think I just got really frustrated by it all, and I might be justified, I might not be.  Either way I think the emergency room should no longer be called the emergency room.  We should from now on dub it the waiting room.  I think that is a far more accurate summary of what takes place in an emergency room.  

I usually don’t complain, and I am probably completely out of line for complaining.  Regardless I just had to share my thoughts, and if you have had a bad experience with the waiting room just let me know.

Job

So currently I am job hunting, and for a lot of people I guess it might be a pretty stressful experience.  For me though it is absolutely exhilarating.  I am completely loving it, and I have a couple of different reasons as to why.  First of all I love change, and I love having new experiences.  New experiences are so intriguing because you get the opportunity to learn and experience things that your normal comfort zone would not allow.  Thus I love having new experiences.  The second reason why I am excited is because I have actually never had a secular job.  I know that sounds kind of weird, but I have always either worked with my family or in a church.  I guess I have technically never had a “real” job.  Soon though I will officially be able to be called a working man in the real world, and for me that is just invigorating.  I really can’t wait to see the lessons I am going to be learning in the next few months and this year.  

Is anyone else like me?  Do you just love new experiences, and if you do what’s a new experience you have had recently?  Also tell me why you love new experiences.  Your reasons could be completely different than mine.  Either way I would just like to learn more.

Sunday’s Message.

Yesterday’s sermon done by this guy was unbelievable.  He did an absolutely incredible job, He talked about the fact that rain is coming. Meaning that blessing are going to come just sometime there is a long time in between the blessings, and we have to keep an open I for the small blessings. Because the greatest blessings usually start out small.  I don’t know why but yesterdays sermon reminded of a video.

I hope this video helps, and I just want to give a huge shout out to Micheal he did an awesome job on sunday and there is more to come from his sermon latter on this week.



Questions Bother Me

So periodically from time to time I have questions that just bother me, and I don’t mean bother like they annoy me.  I mean these are questions that just will not leave me no matter what I try to do.  These are questions that keep me up at night.  These are questions that normally I can’t figure out the answer to, but I still continue to ask the question.

So I want to share my question with you, but keep in mind I don’t have an answer to this question.  On top of that though I don’t even think there is one answer.

My question is “What does church at its greatest form look like”

 I mean honestly this question bugs me because over the past few weeks I have probably asked myself this question hundreds of times, and yet I still have not come up with an answer.  Don’t get me wrong as you read this. I’m not a church basher.  In fact I love what churches are doing, but here is what I am trying to do with this question.  I want to remove all of my preconceived beliefs that I have so far as to what church “should” look like, and I want to, as objectively as possible, answer the question “what does church at its greatest form look like.”

So here is my conclusion.  After asking myself this question over and over again, I have simply come up with more questions.

Is the church at its greatest form relevant services?

Is church at its greatest form the emergent church?

Is church at its greatest form when more bible studies are happening?

Is church at its greatest form when there is great preaching and great music?

Is the church at its greatest form when the poor and the needy are being fed?

Is church at its greatest form………….

The questions have become almost endless.  So I will continue asking the question, and hopefully there is answer to be found.  Somehow though I think that i will not come up with a definite answer.  The reason being is simple.  Amidst all of the questions I have come up with one conclusion.  Church at its greatest form is not a static idea, but it is an ever evolving answer.  It will always be changing.  

I would like to hear your thoughts though.  What question has been bothering you lately?  What is your opinion on my question?  Whatever you are thinking just share.



Stress

Sometimes I wish that being a Christian meant living a stress free life, but somehow it doesn’t. 

I still struggle with money issues. 

I still get in spats with my wife and get frustrated at other people. 

I still feel lonely at times.

I still am confused about my career most of the time.

you put all these together and many more and it adds up to stress.

 

That’s been my life recently!  What has yours been like?
