I’m Back and So Is Tim

April 11, 2014 — 4 Comments

I know that I have been hiding under a rock for the last few months, but there is no better reason to come out from hiding than a good old Video of the Week.

In honor of this upcoming weekend, today’s video features my favorite Christian Funny Man, Tim Hawkins.

As a Christmas present to each other, my wife and I bought tickets to go see Tim since he was to appear about 45 mins from our home.  We purchased these tickets over 6 months ago and have been waiting to “open our Christmas present” and share a great evening out with each other.

So tomorrow night, my wife and I will be sitting on the front row laughing our hearts out as we see Tim Hawkins live and in person.

In honor of this occasion, this week’s video features a clip from Tim’s newest DVD.  I hope you find him as funny as we do.

And yes, this is just the beginning of many new posts that I have in store for you.  So, don’t go away; God’s not done with me yet!

The First Christmas Carol

November 18, 2013 — 4 Comments

the first christmas carolWhat happens when you combine the Gospel of Luke and Charles Dickens? The result is a delightful new look at the events surrounding the birth of Jesus Christ. This is exactly what happened when Marianne Jordan sat down several years ago to write a Christmas play for the church youth drama team. Now Jordan has expanded this script into a book that allows us all to experience the miracle of Jesus’ birth through a different set of eyes.

The First Christmas Carol – a miser, a manger, a miracle by Marianne Jordan, published by Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolina’s, is a fun look at the traditional Christmas story that we find in the Gospels. Set in Bethlehem during the census, the story follows the miserly innkeeper, Ebenezer, his assistant Aaron, and Aaron’s handicapped son, Timothy, as they deal with the crowds that have poured into town, overflowing Ebenezer’s inn.

As you might expect, the inn is full when Joseph and Mary arrive in town but Timothy, Aaron, and Martha (Aaron’s wife) provide a place for the couple to bed down in an unused stable. It seems like a suitable substitute for a room as long as Ebenezer doesn’t find out. Little does the group know that Ebenezer is preoccupied at the moment with a visit from some very unusual angels.

You Love Me Anyway

You Loved Me Anyway

I am the thorn in Your crown
But You love me anyway
I am the sweat from Your brow
But You love me anyway
I am the nail in Your wrist
But You love me anyway
I am Judas’ kiss
But You love me anyway

See now, I am the man that called out from the crowd
For Your blood to be spilled on this earth shaking ground
Yes then, I turned away with this smile on my face
With this sin in my heart tried to bury Your grace
And then alone in the night, I still called out for You
So ashamed of my life, my life, my life
But You love me anyway
Oh, God… how you love me
You love me anyway

You Love Me Anyway … Sidewalk Prophets

Regret

October 21, 2013 — 4 Comments

205550830_845b19f97d_mAll of us have things in our past that we regret. You would not be human if you did not look back on decisions made or actions taken and regretted the course that you decided to take at the time. However, today’s post is not about my regrets, nor is it about your regrets. Instead it is about regret on a much larger and much more serious scale. For the past six or seven weeks, my Sunday School Class has been studying a series from David Jeremiah about 30 Amazing People in the Bible. We have been listening to one half of each 40 minute lesson each week, leaving us enough time left to discuss what we have learned.  So far we have looked at Jesus, Enoch, Noah, and Abraham. But it was the lesson on Noah that sparked the thoughts for today’s post. Let’s take a look at what the Scriptures tell us about this story.

5 The Lord saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time. 6 The Lord regretted that he had made human beings on the earth, and his heart was deeply troubled. 7 So the Lord said, “I will wipe from the face of the earth the human race I have created – and with them the animals, the birds and the creatures that move along the ground – for I regret that I have made them.”  Genesis 6:5-7 NIV

ChristianDroid Update

October 16, 2013 — 4 Comments

It has been two weeks since I we last visited together here at ChristianDroid. During these past two weeks the changeover at work has progressed well and we are starting to get back to a normal schedule. Unfortunately, over these past weeks, due to long hours at work and little time at home, I have been unable to keep post on a regular basis.

I have missed sharing my thoughts and ideas here with you and I have missed the community that we have developed over the past two years. So it is time, once again, to resume our conversations here at ChristianDroid. However, in order to take some of the pressure off to put something up every day, my plan is to start posting every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, with Fridays continuing our Video of the Week series. Of course, there may be more posts in between as time permits but I wanted to make sure that there was a set schedule that you could count on and that I could manage.

So look for our next video coming your way this Friday morning and I look forward to sharing what God is laying on my heart in the future.

And as always, thank you for being a part of this great community of believers as we discover how to use technology to enhance our walk with Christ.
