thoughts about jesus, travelogs, and anything else i can find swimming around in my head....

labor day weekend


i know - not much excuse for going this long in between posts. plus i dont have a good reason for not posting. anyway - im still here in mississippi. been here for almost 2 months now. im pretty much going crazy having withdrawals from prague and the gorgeous landscape, better known as the czech republic. things here arent quite the same. lots has been on my mind - which i will try to tell about better in the coming days. as of my plans for now - im not quite sure. i have a few options - that i am still trying to discern between. when i know more - ill let everyone know.

lindsay has been here for the long weekend - and it has been fun. we havent done alot to be honest - but it has been really nice. for now we are both floundering a bit - myself more than her - but that is ok. things will work out like they should - and i am not worried about it. i think we both are just waiting on the doors that i know god will open.

i was reading the ever informative meridian star yesterday and came across an article that basically said the same things as this article that i am posting. it really disturbed me and got me to thinking. here it is if you want to read it. this is the article that was in a baptist paper too - so this isnt coming from a source that is skewed to the left or anything. it has to do with tongues and the intolerable stance that this denomination has taken on this.

i will refrain from making any other comments on this stance taken by baptists, besides the fact that once again i am really dissappointed and very intrigued at how ignorant and intolerant people can be. decide for yourself when you read. just one more reason why i choose to dissassociate myself (the fourth paragraph is really interesting...) from this denomination that i was raised in. in trying to grow more like christ - i have to ask myself : in rejecting the way people worship and how they communicate with christ - is this christlike? i just wonder....

all this brings to mind a song by derek webb that i love makes me think about a lot.

a king and a kingdom

who's your brother, who's your sister
you just walked passed him
i think you missed her
as we're all migrating to the place where our father lives
'cause we married in to a family of immigrants

my first allegiance is not to a flag, a country, or a man
my first allegiance is not to democracy or blood
it's to a king & a kingdom

there are two great lies that i’ve heard:
“the day you eat of the fruit of that tree, you will not surely die”
and that Jesus Christ was a white, middle-class republican
and if you wanna be saved you have to learn to be like Him

but nothing unifies like a common enemy
and we’ve got one, sure as hell
but he may be living in your house
he may be raising up your kids
he may be sleeping with your wife
oh no, he may not look like you think

i hope that this song makes you think. oh and by the way - if you want to download the whole album free and legally - just go to
