True Servants Serve #1

As I talk to other pastors, I realize just how difficult it has become to get volunteers to serve in ministry.  Many churches burden the same volunteers with serving, time and time again, because the task of recruiting volunteers is so difficult. On average 20% of Christians serve the Lord faithfully.  That leaves 80% of Christians uninvolved in the work of ministry.  In a church […]

Madagascar 3 Review

Did you know that lions get homesick too? All Alex can think of is getting he and his pals—Marty the zebra, Gloria the hippo and Melman the giraffe—back to their comfy cages in the Central Park Zoo. They’ve been off on their travels far too long. (Two movies too long, to be precise.) So they all make their way into Monte Carlo to find their […]

Tent Camping Top 10

1.  If you are the only person, amongst hundreds of RVs and campers, camping in a tent… are you poor or just stupid? 2. Refer to The Poopy Dance blog post. Don’t bring that child! 3. When planning dinner… account for the 20-25 minutes it takes for a 4 year old to roast a hot dog. 4. When the directions tell you to attach legs […]

Promethus Review

“I think they want us to come and find them.” That’s researcher Elizabeth Shaw’s conclusion when she and Charlie Holloway (her scientific and romantic partner) discover 35,000-year-old cave drawings of people surrounding a giant man pointing at six circles in the sky—drawings that match findings from a multitude of other ancient civilizations. The only question is who “they” are… read more here

Camping with Kids

I am taking my three children camping tonight.  Their ages are 3 months old, 4 and 5. It seems that my wife and I are much more excited about this adventure than our children.  My children keep asking if we are going to roast marshmallows.  That’s all they care about. We can roast marshmallows at home.  What is it about marshmallows that is so wonderful […]

The Poopy Dance

My kids dance the poopy dance. I think at some point everyone does, even adults. I wish my kids would just poop in the potty.  They seem to enjoy just pooping in their pants all the time. My son didn’t get the hang of pooping in the toilet until he was almost 5. My daughter who just turned 4, is well on her way to […]

Venus Sun Transit

Tonight at 6:08pm EST Venus will punch a hole in the sun… or at least it will look that way. Venus will be viewable as a black dot that traverses the sun for about 18 minutes.  We will all be dead (possibly) the next time this solar phenomenon happens in 2117, so don’t miss it. Don’t stare directly at the sun.  Use a cardboard pinhole […]

Helping Hands Don’t Hurt People!

One day my children are going to kill each other.  This may not be true but some days it sure feels that way. My wife and I recently spent time with one of our friends, Jessica W.   During our time together she shared with us the concept, “helping hands don’t hurt people.” The phrase is very simple but it is extremely profound for my 4 […]
