Alas and Did My Mac Bleed…

29 12 2008

n500627026_944693_9332my mac is having some problems. all mac-haters love that sentence. anywho, it had a couple of updates and they required for the computer to either be shut down or restarted. since i was doing some work on said computer, i clicked restart. it stayed on the screen with the apple logo and the little dial for hours. i left it on all night to see if it was just a really harsh update, but alas, no hope. we sent gave it to AIS and it will now be a couple of days before i see it again.

one of my friends sarcastically said, “i thought those things don’t break!”. they don’t…. they play with your emotions.





Tis the season to be merry…

I’ve Got Dreams, Dreams to Remember…

19 12 2008

dream⋅er

–noun

1. a person who dreams.
2. a person who lives in a world of fantasy; one who is impractical and unrealistic.
3. a person whose ideas or projects are considered audacious or highly speculative; visionary.

i decided a while ago, that the way Jesus lived his life is the best possible way to live mine. with that comes some major responsiblities and criticism. Jesus was always changing the way people viewed God and how they viewed their own faith. he was a dreamer.

a person who was impractical and unrealistic.

a person whose projects were audacious or highly speculative.

a visionary.

he was all of the above to the people he affected the most. and those people were ultimately the ones that put him to death.

we are called to be the dreamers of this grace that he has so graciously given us. you might even say that the grace i speak of is in and of itself “unrealistic”. there will be times when the faith we live out seems unrealistic, audacious, highly speculative, and impractical. but i take a lot of comfort in knowing that that is what most people thought of Jesus in his day. i’m not saying to be stupid and make stupid decisions. i’m just saying that some of it might not always make any sense at the time. if we don’t do it, someone else will. and if no one else does it, then the rocks from the earth will do it. how much sense does that make? it doesn’t……not to us anyway.

last night a small group of dreamers from Canvas went to the movie theater where will be meeting starting in january. we prayed in the parking lot over the movie theater, the people of savannah, and our purpose as a church. starting a church is a perfect example of a life of uncertainty. we know that God has put us together for a purpose and given us a vision for this city. it might not make sense to anyone else and we’ve already seen criticism but it’s what we’re called to do.

i’m a dreamer.
