No particular reason, but I wanted to share with you this great video, which details the proper technique behind giving a a proper man-hug.
Here is Perry’s take on some Christians, quoted today:
I am sick and tired of Christians standing around seeing who can pee the furtherest…hell is a real place…I really don’t want people to go there…and my focus is going to be on seeing people come to Christ and NOT Christians who seem to think they already have it figured out anyway.
Last night (April 25), Bono said this (in part) on a special two-hour American Idol: Idol Gives Back:
“People say you can’t be the generation that ends brutal, stupid poverty, but we can and we will.”
“I have been in front of 70,000 people here in L.A. and its a pretty amazing feeling. I can’t think of any feeling better except perhaps the feeling that you can save somebody’s life and there is not one person watching this program tonight who cannot save a life.”
Bono is co-founder of ONE, The Campaign to Make Poverty History: Millions of Americans united in ONE voice to fight against extreme poverty.
Partners of ONE include:
plus more than 50 other partners (including several denominations)

on Sept. 2, 2004, Bono appeared as a guest on the O’Reilly Factor. Here are selected excerpts from that conversation:
O’Reilley: You want American drug companies then to send to Africa all the drugs they can possibly…
Bono: I’m not asking drug companies to behave like philanthropists. I’m saying we, our governments, United States and Europe, have to deal with this problem. If we don’t, we will reap a very ill wind. This is — it’s not just being bleeding hearts here. The strategic implications. There’s 10 million AIDS orphans in Africa right now. There will be 20 by the end of the decade. 12 right now. This is chaos. This is a consummating (ph) havoc, and the war against terror, which you talk about every night, is bound up in the war against poverty.
Today is April 20. 4:20. National Cannabis day.
I remember several years ago i was a sophomore at University. After morning practice (starting at 6 a.m.!), i would take a nap in the union before my 9 a.m. course. following morning classes, i would walk back to my car on the other side of campus (near where my practice started).
Well, on April 20, a guy stopped me and handed me a paper flier promoting a 4:20 party at a local ‘tobacco paraphernalia’ store. I was honestly naive. i asked, ‘what is 4:20?’
The guy was taken aback and just answered, ‘it’s just a day to celebrate our freedom together.’
It was only later in the day my teammates filled me in about what 4:20 really was…
I have linked to wikipedia’s entry on 4:20, for your intake.
I’ve never used marijuana, and don’t ever plan on it. I’ve certainly been around it, been offered a puff or two on multiple occasions. i certainly don’t endorse its use.
God loves those who celebrate 4:20, too! (even if he maybe doesn’t like the behavior–he still absolutely loves the people!)
question: what did you think the first time you heard the term ’4:20′?
Do you remember the movie Multiplicity?
The Michael Keaton movie features Keaton’s character multiplying exact duplicates of himself to get more accomplished. Eventually, one of the duplicate clones then clones himself, and that clone likes to say ‘Hi Steve.’
It’s a rather good movie.
But this weekend at New Hope, we’ll be talking about the myth of Multiplicity. Will it be confirmed? Or Busted?
It will be pretty cool, as our resident Myth Busters Jamie and Adam tackle the myth head-on.
Don’t miss out on this one: Saturday at 6 p.m. and Sunday at 8 or 10:30 a.m.
This is a screen shot from one of the videos we’ve produced for our upcoming weekend series, Myth Busters. It will be pretty cool, i think. This weekend is themed: SUPERPASTOR. You’ll want to check out the video of Jamie and Adam busting this myth…they caught some secret footage of Pastor Diehl in action…i GUARANTEE you’ve never seen Pastor Diehl like this before!
Check it out this weekend, 6 p.m. Saturday or 8 and 10:30 a.m. Sunday.
it used to be about half the time i wanted to put a file attachment on an email message, i would forget to actually attach it. you probably never forget, but thought i’d share one simple way to never forget to attach a file.
After implementing this simple tip (which i did come up with on my own!), I now forget maybe one percent of the time. The change happened overnight, and was due to just one small habit i formed:
When i type, ‘I’m attaching the file you requested.’ what actually happens is this…
at this point, i stop, and actually attach the file. then i continue,
‘ the file you requested.’
This has helped me a lot, and i hope you’ll find it beneficial, too.
Do you have any handy tips like this you could share?
a few weeks ago, i talked about the rules of church.
the last couple of weeks i’ve actually been getting hits from search engines from people looking for the rules of church.
i found a site, though, which lists the rules of one church. I got a kick out of one rule, which officially states, “Follow church rules…” Aren’t the rules supposed to be the rules and not reference themselves? Here is the list of rules.
So what do you think a list of rules like this does for someone who doesn’t already understand them? to an outsider? What about someone who is really checking out God, and they get yelled at for exiting through the wrong aisle or at the wrong time?
