What's On My Mind?

The Lizard Lied. We recently changed our auto insurance policy from Allstate to GEICO. Too recently, it seems. The GEICO gecko who promises claims adjustors will get to you within moments of an accident failed to say 'in some cases'. In my case, we finally heard from our claims representative today, and because we had recently switched to GEICO, we are having to jump through some hoops to prove we really were insured when the tree decided to fall on my car. The long haul - everything will be fine. The short haul - what a nuisance! It just goes to show you that you can't trust a lizard.

The Kingdom of God. Discussion hasn't heated up here on the blog yet about the Kingdom series we've undertaken, but I am sure enjoying it. I've been noticing how almost every passage I read these days has some kingdom ties or kingdom mention in it. Too cool. Give a listen to the sermon audio or glance through my notes from Sunday (right hand panel) and let me know what you think.

Namibia. My friend Don left today for Namibia where he will come alongside our friends in Rehoboth and Arandis. How cool is it that Don came to know of Namibia through his daughters' being a part of our 2005 Dance Team, then he himself went as a part of the 2006 CCA team, and now he's headed back to share a couple weeks worth of his time? God is good. Hey, join me in praying for Don! It's not about what Don can accomplish, but what God might accomplish in and through him. You can follow Don's trip on a blog he set up, here. Drop him a comment and let him know you're with him in prayer.

  • Earlier this morning, Don sent along a little message that said the Hound of Heaven was acting up already! He didn't say anything more, so I am really anxious to see what is in store. Safe travels, my friend. We are all praying for you!

    On the Kingdom....interestingly enough I am reading through Blue Like Jazz to get ready to meet Donald Miller at Congress in a couple of weeks and he mentions(as does the Bible) that with faith, God will ignite the KINGDOM LIFE in me! There's a great section in the book that talks about religion being a false gospel for him...no magic in it, no wonder, no awe, no kingdom life burning in his chest. I certainly relate to that from my own upbringing and I am really excited that we are going to be chatting about this for weeks to come! Thanks, Pastor Darin!

  • OK, Blue Like Jazz has been on my reading list for over a year, since a fellow sipper at Starbucks recommended it (LOVE those divine Starbucks encounters).

    Looks like a good read for my plane rides next week...
