Jana to Speak at Simply Youth Ministry Conference

I am excited for my wife, Jana, who is going to be part of a "Heart to Heart" panel discussion at the Simply Youth Ministries Conference in Chicago on February 26 - March 1. She will also again be the "Small But Might Affinity Group Leader" during the conference as well. I love the fact that she will get to do the things she loves and minister to others on a national level. In that vein, if you ever need a speaker, counselor, or an all around good person to talk to, go to her website. She will do a great job.

Citizen's Arrest

Okay, well tonight, I was driving to football practice and I looked into the rear view mirror and saw a police cruiser. I happened to be talking to my wife on the cell phone and didn't have my seat belt on. So. . . I didn't want to give the cop any reason to stop me. First I got off the phone. I then came upon a section of road which is 40 miles per hour (not that anyone goes that slow). So, I slowed down to about 42. The cop stayed right on my tail. Now this section of road goes through a small village and the 40 mph speed limit goes on for ever. Before the limit jumps back up to 55 mph, there is a section of road where there is a dotted (passing) line. When I got to the dotted line, the police car passed me and sped up to a speed much higher than 40 (remember, I was going 42). My question: Should I have made a citizen's arrest or not? Let me know what you think.

New Movie Stars Local Comedy Night Headliner!

The Star of this new movie will be at East Juniata High School on Sunday, September 27 at 7 PM as the headliner for Comedy Night! The show is FREE and sponsored by Highway 35 Student Ministries. Before the show, Steadfast, a local Christian band, will be playing outside. Tell everyone you see! Below is the announcement about the new movie "The Grace Card" from and here is the link for the entire article (Which I don't necessarily endorse)

Louis Gossett Jr., who won a Best Supporting Actor Oscar in 1983 for his portrayal of a hard-nosed Marine Corps gunnery sergeant in "An Officer and a Gentleman," will be in Memphis next month to shoot "The Grace Card," the inaugural feature from Graceworks Pictures, a new faith-based local production company.

Originally titled "The Life Giver," the movie was written by Dr. David Evans, a Memphis optometrist, and later polished by Howard Klauser, who wrote Clint Eastwood's "Space Cowboys." A veteran writer-director of "Passion Play" productions at the Calvary Church of the Nazarene in Cordova, Evans also will direct the film.

"The Grace Card" will star actor/comedian Michael Joiner as a bitter Memphis police officer forced to confront his racism when he's brought together with an African-American pastor-cop.

Evans and Calvary church members, who have been active supporters of the production, hope to replicate the success of "Fireproof" with Kirk Cameron, a 2008 Christian-themed movie produced by Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Ga., that earned $33 million at the box office.

Shooting is scheduled to begin Oct. 14.

A Month of Silence

I decided to stop blogging for a month for a few reasons.

1. Football season started and Youth Group started early. I was just too busy.

2. I wanted to see if it was really important to me.

3. I wanted to re-load and do a better job when writing.

So, here it is about a month since I last blogged. Football is well under way and running and the same with Youth group. I also really did miss blogging. I found myself having to say "no" to myself a bunch of times. And, hopfully, I will be writing more and better posts. Let's see.
