So, I’ve been neglecting you in order to write a book


I’ve had a fair number of people asking me why I haven’t posted in awhile; so, I feel as though I owe the internet an update. During the time that I would ordinarily waste blogging, I’ve been writing my first tiny book. It’s pretty much finished now; so, get excited. I’ll likely start boring you with blog ramblings again soon. The book should be available in paperback at Amazon.com and in downloadable form (for Kindle, Nook, iPad, etc.) within the next few weeks. I will, of course, keep you posted.

5 more ways to enhance your rapture experience

Well, ol’ Harold Camping is at it again. Apparently today is the day! Again. http://joshw.us/nvETQO. Eventually he’ll be right, right? Anyhow, you may recall that I posted my “top 5 ways to enhance your rapture experience” on the date that Camping mispredicted this event last time. In honor of rapture day 2011 take 2, here are 5 more ways to enhance your rapture experience. I took the liberty of naming them this time.

My Thoughts From Day 1 of the Willow Creek Global Leadership Summit

I’m up dark and early-ready for day 2 of the WCAGLS. I wanted to get some of my thoughts written down so that, when I’m reading my own blog for egotistical purposes later, I’ll remember (and hopefully be continually motivated) to be challenged by the content of the summit.

Top 5 ways to enhance your rapture experience

Apparently today is the day! (at least according to some guy who thinks he’s better at math and prophecy than Jesus) Anyhow, let’s say he’s right. I’m not sure what the proper protocol is for a rapture. It sounds kind of boring to go out all solemn and pious; so, I came up with 5 cool ways to leave the planet….just in case you need some ideas.

Amarillo is hungry.

Recently, I overheard the following statistic: 65% of AISD students are receiving free or reduced price meals (i.e. 65% of Amarillo ISD students cannot afford to pay for lunch at these prices). WOW. I called AISD to fact-check (yep, I’m that guy). AISD informed me that the number was probably somewhere around 60%. So, being the nerd that I am, I decided to compare this number with some other cities to see if Amarillo is out of whack somehow. Lubbock: around 62%. Abilene: around 79%. Tyler: a little over 60%.

04/30/11 Sermon “The Boat Talk”

I had the opportunity to preach Saturday night at the EXP service at Paramount Baptist Church. The focus: finding peace in a chaotic world. I’ve received hundreds of emails and phone calls asking if/when my talk would be available for download. Ok, not really. By “I’ve received hundreds of emails and phone calls asking” I, of course, mean “my mom asked”. Anyhow, my talk is now available here if you are interested: http://www.paramount.org/exp-audio The link for direct download is here: http://paramount.podhoster.com/download/591/22964/exp043011.mp3 Thanks, EXP’ers, for letting me join you. Hope to visit with you again in the future!

4 Steps to jump start your spiritual life

This past Sunday I had the opportunity to preach at a local church. I love it when these opportunities come along. Tip: if ever you lack the motivation to pray/study your Bible, commit to preaching one Sunday. Works for me every time. Here’s my sermon “4 Steps to Jump Start Your Spiritual Life” in blog format:
