Which is the end goal: discipleship or evangelism? Is The Great Commission (in Matthew 28) comparable to Jesus’ words to the apostles in Acts 1:8? Does the Acts text apply to us today?
I know Christmas has passed, but this is funny enough to read anyway. An excerpt:
You’re saying the gifts were inappropriate.
What’s wrong with diapers? A nice jumper or two? A Baby Bjorn? They were riding around on a donkey, you know. A Baby Bjorn would have come in handy. Have you ever in your life gone to a baby shower where someone says, congratulations on the baby, here’s some perfume. No. Because most people have some sense.
A few years ago my friend, Terry Harville, and I decided we wanted to try our best to get in the Christmas spirit. We were not very Christmasy at the time. So I invited him over to watch a Christmas movie. Christie was excited that T and I were trying so hard to obtain some seasonal joy. The movie we watched: Diehard. Best Christmas movie ever made.
Just some interesting statistics and figures on homeschooling versus public and private schools. Of course the stat that was overlooked was whether or not these kids can carry on a normal conversation without invoking the powers of Yoda or removing their headgear.*
Incredible photos. Why it’s a “Top 14″ list, though, I don’t know. Seems strange.
And then a “Top 10″ runners-up? Why not cut four and make a “Top 20?” Or add one and have a “Top 25?” Some astronomist with an expensive camera is feeling left out right now; and for no good reason.
Seriously? It’s the fried FISH? It couldn’t be the fried okra or fried chicken? Or fried twinkies or fried snickers bars? Or just the fried crispy things you can order for free at Captain D’s?
Nope, it’s definitely the fish.
* Completely a joke. I don’t really believe homeschool kids are socially awkward. Or at least not because of homeschooling…**
** Only another joke. Mostly. But that’s for another post.
