My Day of Rest.

Katie's been on me to have a "day of rest." Well, today was to be that day. After a morning working out, followed by a venture to the PGA Store, I poured myself a cup of coffee and sat down in my chair to enjoy my long awaited rest. It was excellent. It was excellent. Don't get me wrong, I'm still in my chair with my cup of coffee; however, a very important variable has changed. Up until now I have been scouting my fantasy football league still attempting to find a suitable answer to Ronnie Brown's injury while I have simultaneously been watching some Saturday early afternoon television. Specifically, I have been watching the West Ham vs Portsmouth Premiership League game, while occasionally flipping over to the Colorado vs Texas Tech game as well as a History Channel documentary in search of the lost gold from Solomon's Temple. Then, Katie joined my day of rest. Now, my day of rest has changed to watching some Kevin Costner & Joan Allen (I don't even know who she is) movie, The Upside of Anger, occasionally flipping over to learn about blouses and necklaces on Real Simple TV.

Theological Issue of the Day.


Remember when people used to ask (and I guess some still do), "If Jesus had a car, what would he drive?" Well, I still don't know the answer to that question, but I do know that Moses drives an Infinity.

Lee Strobel.

Yesterday, Lee Strobel spoke at Watermark in the morning services. I've never heard Strobel before, but I was very impressed. The famous apologist focused on the two central claims of Christianity: 1.) Christ claimed He was the Son of God, and 2.) Christ rose from the dead. Strobel's words were clear, simple, and convincing. Through yesterday morning and Raise the Mark that night, I was again challenged in the importance of sharing my faith. Though it seems evident that, like every other Christian, my life is existent on this earth to be a witness of Christ to those who don't know Him, I am overwhelmingly absentminded and unintentional in this mission.

You can listen to Strobel speaking at Watermark here.

a good, a great book.


On the flight back from Europe, I read one of the most amazing books: Same Kind of Different as Me: A Modern-Day Slave, an International Art Dealer, and the Unlikely Woman Who Bound Them Together. It is a book that transverses through seemingly insurmountable moments of loss and struggle with a story of an inspiring friendship marked with faith, grace, and redemption. A true story that takes place locally, I urge everyone to read this book. It's a quick read that will both encourage and challenge your soul.
