new star wars!

it's coming in August!

alright, so it IS computer animated... it IS a movie made just to promote an animated TV series... and it DOES feature a female (?) jedi-in-training. but more space fights, more great stories, more lightsabers!

sneeky peeky.


home worship center

bad news, fellow lead worshippers. the need for our jobs as leaders of corporate worship may be coming to an end.

check this out. the home worship center has been patented. now that the people can worship at home, they'll never come to church....


note: don't die

a word for the wise: if you live in a village in south France, DON'T DIE...

or pay the consequences.


ben stein's new movie

this movie might be a little late as far as the age-old debate goes. but it's interesting just how many scientists seem to continue to get ostracized for not condoning darwinism. can't we all just metaphysically coexist?!


in my element

we're up in Erie, PA leading worship for a youth winter retreat. and i sound like a McDonald's commercial, 'cause I'm lovin' it so much.

worship is going so smoothly it's incredible. the kids are responding and my band (neal, whom I haven't played with in over a year, and orion, who rocks my socks on drums) is killer. their instincts and ability to stay true to the mood and song are uncanny.

and we've had a lazy saturday. worshipped this morning. took a walk out onto frozen Lake Erie. then took a nap. now we're sitting inside our cozy meetin area, looking out at the snow quietly falling onto billows of clean, cottony forest ground. we can see the Lake from our dorm area and from the big windows of the worship lodge.

Lord, don't take me now :)



note to self: if you think you might not be posting on your blog for a while, don't make any new posts related to the season of year. it might be 2 or 3 seasons later before you post again :)
