Thursday’s Random Thoughts


1. I read every tweet on Joel Osteen’s timeline all the way back to before Christmas. And after vomiting, it was clear his ministry is not a Christian ministry. You see, for something to be a Christian Ministry, there must be some discussion about the person and work of Christ. Not one statement referenced Jesus. Not even on Christmas.

2. Our vacation is almost over and the best part was worshipping at our old church in Greenwood, MS.

3.  The Bible, particularly The Psalms, dignifies undignified complaints.

4.  Jesus said persecution was a reason for rejoicing and the result would be blessing. America does not understand. America believes in defense attorneys and the courts.

5. My wife and I watched no TV while on vacation. But we watched the sun set for three days straight.

6. I would not attend a gay wedding even if it did have pizza.

7. Pastor over writer.

8. Tomorrow night I’ll see The War on Drugs in concert. Hard to imagine looking forward to another show like this one.

9. Three days till baseball/fantasy baseball. And ignoring my wife and kids for six months. #kiddingnotkidding

10. I’m never bored if my wife is present.

    Joel Osteen must read your blog because the very next day he mentioned Jesus (not that I read his blog, you just made me curious).

      My daughter said his posts sound like fortune cookies.

    Enjoy the concert. Here it’s Wilco in May. Rarely have I been so psyched.

    “America believes in defense attorneys and the courts.” And killing her enemies instead of loving them.

      Very true. I had had Larry Norman’s “Great American Novel” going through my head today.

    Number 3….I’m in Christian ministry. Not a pastor but in it. I’ve wanted another job for three years now; especially the last 10 months. No success. My faith wanes. My feelings are fickle. I trust. Try and obey. Psalm 6, 130, parts of 119 and Isaiah 55 have been a lifeline.
