- What They See Is What They Get!
We are living in a unique age. While some are pounding the pulpit and railing against what they believe is a generation that is hopeless. I will admit that ministry to this post-modern generation can be frustrating and at the very least challenging, but I do not believe it is hopeless. I would like to go on record and say "This generation can be reached". I know, the "en-vogue" thing for a 41 year ...

- The Anonymous
Just a quick note in response to an "anonymous" visitor. They took issue with me using a quote from Gergen. I am well aware of who he is and while I do not endorse him I did appreciate the quote. He has been quoted by several that are espousing...

I have been amazed lately at how quickly people walk away from what has been so dear to them. I have watched men & women walk away almost callously from their families. I have watched as people removed themselves from the friendships that took years to establish in just a few moments.

If it is then my heart is broken for the coming generations that will feel the negative effects of such temporal decisions of the present generation...

In just a few moments we were all caught up in the sweet joy of their description of ...

- "CAN YOU GET JESUS THERE"?
I am sitting in a coffee house this morning drinking my "sugar-free vanilla soy latte"(I miss my carmel frap)...and I started looking around. The paintings in this place are pretty weak. Probably done by local art students or bought at one of those summer sidewalk art sales downtown. Besides that 1/2 of them don't even make sense....oh well, I guess that's "post-modern" art.

Well it is time for turkey! Can you believe it? This year has flown by (in spite of all the storms of life). Wow, where did time go? For many of us, today is a preparation day (Wed) for the big spread tomorrow. Trips to the grocery store and work in the kitchen. Here at home I am getting ready...
