Hi, my darlings.
First, an update. Mike, the guy I asked you to pray for on Friday, passed away this weekend. Please continue your prayers for his family. I’m so thankful he had recognized his need for Jesus’ sacrifice in his life.
In other news, I just wanted to let you know that I am in the great state of Ohio right now. It is a tad chilly here. I’m gone all this week on a speaking trip with Axis. Axis is a non-profit that was started by my friends David and Jeremiah. The Axis teams go around the country speaking to people about worldview and media. They open people’s eyes to the gospel of Jesus and the importance of consistent thinking so that we are consistent doers. I am so proud of Axis and all they do, and I’m honored to be on their board and be able to speak with them sometimes. If you guys have any connections with your churches or Christian high schools or colleges in your area, you should definitely check out the Axis website and consider having a team out. (International readers, this goes for you as well! Just make sure you demand that I get to come along on the trip so I can visit you.)
We’re speaking at a couple of Cedarville University’s chapels this week and we’ll also be speaking at a youth leadership conference later in the week. I suppose I should learn some parts so that I know what I’m supposed to say. Or maybe I’ll just wing it in front of the entire student body of Cedarville. We’ll see.
So in case you hadn’t heard, the Broncos lost by a teeny, tiny little margin the other night. So, the season is over. We’ll recover. Did you all see the awesome commercial Focus on the Family broadcast during the second quarter? So many people got to hear about the gift of salvation that Jesus offers to us.
Finally, I’m reading The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. I’m on a Sherlock Holmes rampage, you guys. I’m soaking it up. He’s just so clever and good at noticing things. You know why I like it? Because I love Psych. And Shawn and Gus are just a modern-day Holmes and Watson. Of course I’d love old Sherlock.
OK, I best be going. Because of my weird schedule this week, the bloggy may be off a bit. I’ll try my best, but just cut me some slack, OK? The state of Ohio has need of my skillz. Also, they couldn’t get anyone else to come.
Happy MLK day, folks!
Love you lots!
