Happy Birthday to My Wife

Today is my wife’s 24th birthday. I love you Carly!  If the Lord wills, I will spend many, many more birthdays with you, and that, my love, is very thrilling to me.

(Speaking of my wife, she just posted an incredible talk on her blog called “Life’s Too Short to Just Admire.”  She gave the message to some college students in Lincoln a couple weeks back.  It’s worth your time, I promise.)

MSNBC Writes About Matt Chandler’s Battle With Cancer

A powerful, mind-blowing piece.  I’m thanking God for Matt Chandler, trembling at God’s sovereignty, and confessing my tendency to escape suffering at all costs.

Truth is Truth is Truth

From the urban philosopher Lecrae:

Man, see some folks say, “All truth is relative, it just depends on what you believe.” You know, “Hey man, ain’t no way to know for sure who God is or what’s really true.” But that means you believe your own statement: that there’s no way to know what’s really true. You’re saying that that statement is true. You’re killing yourself. If what’s true for you is true for you, and what’s true for me is true for me, what if my truth says your’s is a lie? Is it still true? Come on man!

…See, there’s this thing called “Secular Humanism”, it says man is the source of all meaning and all purposing. You know what i’m saying? We’re just the result of a big cosmic explosion. We don’t really have a purpose or meaning, so we just come up with our own purpose. We’re the source of our meaning and our purpose. How can a man, which is the product of chance, a finite being be the source of purpose and meaning? You can’t! You’re created with purpose man!

Don’t Waste Your Life Music Video

Desiring God and Lecrae have teamed up to produce the “Don’t Waste Your Life” music video.  The song is featured on Lecrae’s album Rebel.  Unfortunately, the video does not contain Dwayne Tryumf’s (British hip-hop artist) verse that is on the album.  Still, it’s a solid video.

Enjoy.

Dash

Here’s a video that was produced by my friend and co-worker, Matthew Meschke, and edited by William Buller.  It’s the first of a few more theological films we hope to produce in the next six months.  Not bad for our first effort.  But hey, we aren’t professionals, so all in all, pretty awesome.  You can find this one the Videos page as well.
