You know what? I am amazed at the number of things you can deep fry. After a trip to the Great State Fair of Texas today, I have decided that you can fry just about anything, put up a sign, and sell it for $5 or more. Seriously, they had (I kid not) Fried Corn on the Cob, Fried Oreos, Fried Snickers Bar, and Even "Fried Coke." The guy at the booth tried to explain it to me, but I decided to keep safe with my giant turkey leg. I wonder what I could batter up and stick in that deep fryer I got as a wedding gift... hmmm.........

Fried pizza anyone?

How We're Seen

Lately, I've been really into wondering how the non-believing world percieves things and people identified with the term "Christian." Many times, the term is percieved automatically as negative because of the many negative things that have been done or said in the name of Christ over the past 2000 years. I came across this photo essay today about Christian rock concerts and festivals. At first I was taken back by how anti-Christian this person was, until I realized that this was how she understood the Christian culture. So I'm glad that she had the honesty to tell how she felt about these pictures. I think it gives a great insight into how the world sees Christian music.

Great Kick

One of the best jump kicks I've seen this week. :) Seriously, what was this guy thinking?

Not a Yankee anymore!

See, this test proves it!

Back online!!!!!!!

Woohoo!!!! A couple weeks ago, the church passed a resolution to get DSL in the office! That means I actually have usable internet in the office!! Hopefully, I can get back to blogging more and more as the time goes on.

I'm going to be heading the National Youth Workers Convention in Austin at the beginning of October. I've been to two of these in the last four years, and it's always been an exciting time. I have so much fun at these things, and always come back refreshed and with great ideas to use in the church. So I'm hoping that this year is no exception. I'm going to be blogging from the convention, especially if there's good internet in the convention center, (please please please. :)

I must get back to working, but hopefully I can get back to putting my thoughts here, so I can use them in messages later. You students who read this, you may see my illustrations before everyone else! :)
