I Can Die Happy Now

As I was eating breakfast this morning, I started kind of spacing out and thinking about where some of my friends are in life now, and how awesome it was when we were all together back in the FBC Sunnyvale days. I’m not sure what spawned that trip down memory lane, maybe it was because that was the first time I really felt connected to the church. Maybe it was because it was during this time that I was introduced to my favorite band, U2 (I know, I grew up living under a rock). Maybe it was because it was the first time I was really able to be involved in ministry. Whatever the reason, during the course of this odd flash of memories I remembered a conversation with one of the youth leaders about how he managed to get tickets to U2’s Vertigo tour. I remember thinking one thing when he said that, and felt myself echo that thought today: I’d be able to die happy if I went to a U2 show.

Live Sent: Be The Church

I started reading Jason Dukes’ new book, Live Sent:You Are a Letter a while back, but never finished it because I just got burned out with all the reading and writing I was doing. As I’m on track to start a small group in September, unless God intervenes, I felt that now was the time to get back into the swing of things, and this book was on the top of the list to re-read and finish. I’m only four chapters in and I’m absolutely confident that I can say that this book is vital to Christians who desire to live missionally (or reformissionally, for the Driscollites out there).

Women of Faith: Part 1

Well, my life isn’t awkward enough, so I decided to apply through BookSneeze to get the chance to blog a review about the Women of Faith conference coming to Dallas. Ironically enough, I was selected. (Ok, you can stop laughing now, there will be other guys there…I checked.) Their theme for this year is how God and His love is “Over the Top”.
