Natalie Grant in concert

Category : just for fun

I’m a little tired today.  Life has been busy.  I’m getting married in 2 weeks.  And I just finished moving all my stuff into the house I bought a couple of weeks ago.  But that’s not why I’m tired today.

I’m tired because I only got 6 hours of sleep.  And for a change it wasn’t because I was working.  Instead, I had the chance to hear Natalie Grant in concert (at the Festival of the Bells).

The venue was in a smaller, rural town that’s been hit very hard by the recession.  I’m sure she could have played in other, bigger venues.  Probably with a lot more energetic of an audience.  But she encouraged a lot of people last night.  In a town that hasn’t had a lot of good news recently.

Now I don’t go to a lot of concerts, but every time I go to a Christian concert where people sit cracks me up.  People seem to fill up a Christian concert just like they do church – starting in the back.  How many times does Dave Matthews or Lady Gaga have empty seats at the front of the stage?  Of course for us this meant, even though we were running a bit late, we had seats right up front.  (here you can see from the exclusive crap cam, as Dave Barry says)

Some artists are better in the studio than they are on the road.  But Natalie Grant was great in concert.  There was definitely no need to auto-tune her!

So there you have it.  She was awesome.  We had a good time.  And I still made it into work.

I have to admit, I kind of wonder if the Devil does this…. because frankly  it looks like fun.

As you’ve probably figured out, I love good Christian humor.  And I think this qualifies.  I’m not sure it was intended to be good Christian humor, but beggars can’t be choosers when it comes to truly funny stuff about faith.  You can buy the snow devil t-shirt here.

By now you all realize I love good Christian humor.  Not the Ned Flanders type, but things that are actually funny.  So is it any wonder why I love this video?

What better way to kick off 2010 then with some silent monks who sing?

Category : choice, different, humor, just for fun, living a life of faith

As we begin to wind down 2009, I want the last few posts of the year to be a bit light-hearted. Life is stressful. We all tend to work long hours. We have hundreds (seemingly) of things going on all the time. We rarely get days off (if you’re lucky enough to have a job).

Everything seems to move at warp speed.

So for this Christmas I encourage you to spend quality, focused, time with your friends and family. Enjoy their company and the community you have. Use this as an opportunity to show what it means to live a life of faith, not by preaching Bible verses, but by being there when they need you.

In the meantime, check out this video. I think we can all wish this was our house growing up…

happy 4th of july

Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction.  And sometimes it takes a terminator to save Jesus.

Happy Easter everyone!
