    Reformation Rap - The Heidelberg Catechism

    Reformation Rap – The Heidelberg Catechism

    Heidelberg Catechism by avoice Lyrics Verse 1: Yeah I’m on a mission like a couple spies, and that guys is the reason why I catechize. The good news we almost forgot I recognize, Heidelberg rediscovering the gospel prize. It’s not scripture but the truth in it will mention he, introduction hide and seek the 16th […]

    Simul Justus et Peccator from Johnny Cash

    Don’t think I could add any commentary to what the man in black has to say here….
    Sinner + Saint a la simul justus et peccator……
    “The Beast in Me” (Sinner)

    “Redemption” (Saint)

    More from Bo Geirtz....

    More from Bo Geirtz….

    I couldn’t resist posting another entry from Bo Geirtz’s devotional. Thursday’s reading is pure Mockingbird….——————————————THURSDAY AFTER THIRD SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY Romans 4:13- 25 For the law brings wrath …. That is why it depends on faith. Romans 4:15,16 Sometimes we wonder why there’s so much talk of the Jews in the Christian Church. If examined […]

    Today's Devotional from the Hammer of God

    Today’s Devotional from the Hammer of God

    I’m generally skeptical of devotionals (Two Words exempted!).  This morning,  I pulled out Bo Geirtz’s amazing devotional with a terrible title called, To Live With Christ.   If you’re not familiar with Geirtz, he was a Swedish Lutheran Bishop who faithfully maintained his allegiance to the historic gospel amidst a church gone off it’s rails. […]

    The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us….

    An interesting video. Well worth the watch. Hint – it’s not necessarily the carrot OR the stick. In a nutshell – both the carrot and the stick produce the opposite of what they intend – the more you incent people, the poorer their performance becomes. Once a task has any cognitive element to it (even […]

    FNL Clip for Today….

    “Give all of us gathered here tonight the strength to remember that life is so very fragile. We are all vulnerable, and we will all, at some point in our lives… fall. We will all fall. We must carry this in our hearts… that what we have is special. That it can be taken from […]

    J.K. Rowling on the Fringe Benefits of Failure

    J.K. Rowling on the Fringe Benefits of Failure

    As I was searching the wonderful TED archive of talks the other day, I came across the address that author J.K Rowling gave at Harvard Commencement in 2008. (Aside – the TED site/community is a great resource IMO and very much worth your time). I’ve never read any of the Harry Potter books and am […]

    Charitable Breakdown from Mint.com

    Charitable Breakdown from Mint.com

    I’m a big fan of Mint.com–a service that lets you keep track of all your bank accounts, track spending, make budgets, etc. One of the things that they’re particular good at is graphics and charts, and generally making boring personal financial management cool with easy to understand pictures–hey, I like pictures. They’ve got a blog […]

    Happy Fun Time + Getting it Together.

    I’ve been spending way too much time on youtube today and was going back through some old videos on my favorite list. Thought I’d pass this one along. I saw it at a Lutheran Youth conference a couple years ago and it is an AMAZING illustration of the Christian life. For further reading check out the Internet Monk’s post on Required Reading – Behavior Modification and the Gospel (HT JH).

    Manny Pacquiao + Vocation

    Manny Pacquiao + Vocation

    I’d never heard of Manny Pacquiao, until last week when I read a Sports Illustrated article floating him for Sportsman of the year. Last night he became the first boxer in history to win a title in 7 weight classes which is an incredible accomplishment, but more amazing to me is in the era of […]
