Early Morning Perfection

I ate at The Shed in Edom with Joe Wood for breakfast Friday morning.  What better way to finish the meal than with a freshly baked piece of Pineapple Pie.  Beautiful.

ChurchMetrics

Once again, LifeChurch.tv is giving away good content.  This latest installment is ChurchMetrics, a free trend watcher for your churches attendance, giving, and salvation/baptism information.  Numbers are only 1 piece of the trend-pie that needs to be watched by churches, so I wouldn’t say this is the end-all solution to being in church leadership.  But if you can utilize a free program to do it rather than spend time making a goofy spreadsheet, then why not take advantage.

It’s Talk Like a Pirate Day

My pirate name is:
Captain Harry Cash

Even though there’s no legal rank on a pirate ship, everyone recognizes you’re the one in charge. You’re musical, and you’ve got a certain style if not flair. You’ll do just fine. Arr!

Reading Machine

I finished Rob Bell’s new book this morning, and absolutely loved it.  You should read it.  Soon.

Before I was done with that book, I got a new book from Amazon (ordering from Amazon could be my spiritual gift).  This one is called Analog in, Digital Out and it’s by Brendan Dawes about interaction design.  I couldn’t put it down…I finished it this afternoon.  Fascinating.  Will read it again.  And again.  It is my new textbook for creativity.

Guitar Heroes Unite

I was thinking about this Crossroads episode today when Steven had some Brad Paisley going in his office. It’s a few years old (as evidenced by the lack of John’s sleeve on the left arm), but I still wish I had this saved on my DVR.

New Stuff to Read

That’s me with my new copy of Rob Bell’s latest book, Jesus Wants to Save Christians.  The back cover says the book is about “faith and fear, wealth and war, poverty, power, safety, terror, Bibles, bombs, and homeland insecurity.” I’ve only read about 16 pages so far, but I’m lovin it.

Side note, when I picked it up to read this morning, Emma asked if I was going to do my puzzle.  Love my little girl.
