Latest Reading

I started reading a book this evening, What Jesus Demands from the World by John Piper.



I really liked what Mark Driscoll, pastor of Mars Hill Church in Seattle wrote as a summary and opinion of it, and thought I might share it with you.

“This is a peculiar book. It assumes that the four Gospels are true and unified. It assumes that Jesus not only does things for us but also makes demands of us. And it assumes that Jesus has authority over everyone regardless of their religion, gender, race, income, sexuality, nationality, or culture. You will likely not agree with every point. But you will hear from a Jesus who is more than a soft-spoken, effeminate, marginalized, Galilean hippie-peasant in a dress and has the peculiar notion that he alone is Lord.”

I look forward to reading this and try to better understand Jesus' commands.

G-man, what's up?

I have no idea why it gets kicked back. I will look into with my IT guy and see.

Are you ready for a family? It is so much fun! I wouldn't trade it for the world.

We love y'all.

Revelation 4:11

"You are worthy, our Lord and God,
to receive glory and honor and power,
for you created all things,
and by your will they were created
and have their being."
