My family and I recently had the opportunity to attend Monster Jam in St. Louis on January 22nd. It was a Christmas gift from my mom, and it was a blast! I enjoyed watching Monster Jam when I was younger, but now I get to enjoy that our family has slowly become fans of the sport, and it was an incredible experience to watch the trucks perform live with my kids. My kids have gotten into it enough already, that all adopted their favorite teams. Savannah is into Grave Digger, Oliver loves the giant shark Megalodon, and Ivy gets a kick out of El Loco Toro as it blows smoke from its nostrils. It was cool to get to see all three running in the event.Continue reading “Revving Up the Faith: A Monster Jam Experience”

“Let’s pee in the corner” …..and other misheard things in life.
A while back my Lead Pastor, Worship Pastor and I were talking about misheard Lyrics. As friends, we busted up laughing. There are so many songs out there that it is easy to mishear some, and when you do it can be funny.
So I want to share with you my a list of 10 misheard lyrics that I think are super funny!

Hat Tip For You
This morning I was listening to a sermon titled Confident Humility from Woodland Hills Church, while I was working. The preacher Dan Kent really caught my attention with this quote.
“The better you become at sumo wrestling, the less effective you will be at competitive swimming” – Dan Kent
The sermon was all-around good, but I’m going to segue into something that is not really tied to that sermon. This quote got me thinking about all the hats I try to fill in life. Sometimes I stretch myself a little thin trying to wear multiple hats, that I probably shouldn’t be wearing. Some hats I gladly choose to wear and would be terrible to take off, like the “husband” hat or the “father” hat. I would also say shedding the “follower of Jesus” hat is also a non-negotiable for me.
I feel that God has called me to be a husband to my wife, and I believe that he has called me to fatherhood, and even though I’ve wrestled with God on this in the past, and lost (luckily without hip damage, sorry Jacob. Genesis 32:22–32 ), I’m called to teach and share His word and love, people, the way Jesus did.
How an anarchic punk rock spirit led me to the Holy Spirit: How it still fights!
I’m like any other punk rock dude right now, I grew up, got married, had some kids and have found that the things I learned through punk rock music still continue to inform my thinking, and help me make sense of the world. I want to share this with my kids, my friends, and my family what I have learned from both my faith and punk ethics daily. The two of these intertwined have assisted in helping me come to several conclusions about my spirituality that are presumably far outside of the norm of contemporary Christian culture.
This probably isn’t all too surprising, but what may be, is that I am convinced that the combination of these ideas informing my head, heart and hands has led me back to the heart of Scripture. I mean, the way of Jesus is pretty punk rock! Several punk bands, now and then, have several points worth reflecting on if you are a follower of Jesus Christ in the Western world.
