Sorry I have been so long in updating. I am preaching tomorrow morning and tomorrow night, so it looks to be a busy but fun day. Today they had Santa’s Helpers at the church which means that Amelia and I got 5 hours of time without the boys to just hang out and have a date day.

I am still looking for a job. I have had another interview but that didn’t pan out at all. Plus it is definitely looking as though we will need to find a place in town within the next month and be moved by Christmas. Please be praying for us in this matter. I will get another newsletter put together for e-mail and snail mail.

Thanks for your prayers and support.

New York City!!

Now they say that Jewish and Muslim symbols have a secular dimension but that Christian symbols are “purely religious”. What pray tell are they talking about? Why a nativity scene of course. Apparently they may not even be sure that the birth of Jesus even happened like that. It was of course something those nutty first century folks exaggerated to no end.

Why is it that we think we know better what happened 2 millennia ago than do the original eyewitnesses? It seems pretty arrogant to me.

This goes along with what I have long held about religious discussions in the public area. Watch yourself and see if you think I am right. Christianity is treated differently in the public marketplace of ideas. I hold that the reason for this is that it is True. I put forward that a religion that is not wholly True is not a threat. Therefore Christianity that is based on historical, truthful, undeniable facts, is a threat like no other to people in certain places.

I picked a good time to get back to blogging. This story on FoxNews’ website has one of the most outrageous quotes I have ever seen.

“Judicial selection should be based on principle, not on pigment. The president cheapens the process when he substitutes race for rationality or color for capability,” Bond said.

This guy is speaking on behalf of the NAACP. It seems like only yesterday that these folks were screaming about letting minorities into Michigan Law School based on the pigment, race, color or whatever else you want to call it. Why do these people make such patently absurd statements like this? The reason is because they have turned skin color into a political classification rather than a racial one. I have literally seen them say that someone isn’t black or Hispanic enough?!? What the heck can you mean by that. More and more they are simply being exposed for what they are; bigots of a different stripe.

The problem is this. If politicians do the right thing and cut social programs for the elderly so that their government won’t go in a financial hole. Those same elderly voters will go to the poles and make sure they don’t get any more chances to do the right thing.

The solution in Germany to combat this. Give children a vote to counterbalance. This would be extremely laughable if these people weren’t dead serious.

This is too funny to let stand without comment. I saw this on Barbara Streisand’s webpage, where I had gone to read her sobbing about the movement of the Reagan movie to Showtime.

Regardless of what you think about Grey Davis, we should all be able to agree that we must now stop this attempted hijacking of the democratic process. Impeaching Clinton …Florida and the 2000 election … Redistricting in Texas … now California… What makes the Right Wing think they can just bully and buy their way into power? If we allow this recall to win, we will be setting a dangerous precedent. In this unfair process, a candidate receiving just 30% of the vote could beat Davis, even if the governor receives 49%. Our governor was elected fair and square just a year ago. He deserves the opportunity to serve out his time in office. So get out there on October 7th and vote no on recall !!!

Apparently the “Right Wing” has been bullying those angels in the Democrat party when they have pursued Constitutional and lawful means to a)redress Clinton’s perjury and obstruction of the law, b)stop a runaway Florida Supreme Court that tried to change election laws after the election was finished, c)allow lawmakers in Texas doing what lawmakers have always done in redistricting procedures, d)let California citizens exercise their lawful provisions for recalling a governor that more and more people were growing to despise. Thanks for the laughs Barbara.

It has been a time of transition. I started a different blog to keep my ministry partners up to date and neglected this one. However, I am getting so sick of seeing these common sense propositions touted by someone as part of a great “discovery”. So I am going to come back to this blog for my commentary on life in general.

Can we by some chance in this country find our way back to the place where we won’t be stunned to discover that a)men and women are different, b)kids do better when their parents are paying attention to them, c)insert other commonly held piece of good old common sense here.

It’s enought to make you spit.

The weather here is the story of the day. It is in the teens right now with about a half a foot of snow on the ground. I haven’t been able to get much done. We have been letting the boys play outside in the snow. And I have made another post to my older blog. The one that I started months ago as a place to vent over politics and life and things.

I am going to try and post pictures tonight. So bear with me. Thanks for all of your prayers on the things that are mentioned here. Please continue to pray for Westside Baptist Church and all of the ministries that God has brought us to there. Pray for my opportunities to help at the Associational level as well. And continue to pray that God will move in people who can support us in this ministry.

Here it is a weekly type of update. The youth ran the annual Praise The Lord Party, an alternative celebration for Halloween, and it went very well. All of the kids who came seemed to have a lot of fun, and I know they all took home a lot of candy.

We had the lock-in over the weekend and it went pretty well. I think more adults than youth made it through the night awake. We started the new youth services last night and it went well. We have been getting snow off and on since Thursday. Tonight the final accumulation for the latest round is estimated to get to 4-7 inches. Of course with the way the roads are maintained around here I will probably still be able to drive into town tomorrow.

Amelia’s TeamKid went well Wednesday night. She is very excited, and I know that her efforts are appreciated by all of the folks involved.

I will try and post some of the snow pictures and pictures from other recent events on the website soon.
