Life Without Cable TV is Great

I have been pondering today over Demian Seiler’s blog post about his life without cable. Like him, I also cut cable a few years ago. We spend some downtime relaxing watching Netflix and renting Blu-Ray movies from the Redbox. This is still working out pretty well for us. We also eliminated over-the-air signal from our television as well. Going to the lengths to remove TV from our home was done so we can spend more quality time with each other.

Changes at Church

Last Sunday I was sad to hear that my Sunday school teacher who was also the associate pastor of education resigned without warning.

For me this is difficult because he was the first Christian mentor I have had that really spoke to my heart. I felt he was a man that was truly devoted to Christ. This past week he was on a mission trip over seas helping a culture translate the bible into their language.

I was once told that nothing will make you lose your religion faster than going to church. The politics, people and drama follow sinners whever they preside. I pray that I will maintain a soft heart and focus on Him.

On the subject of Christ. One of the writers on my Christian-Gaming site may be facing a relapse in cancer. This man is barely into his twenties and already went though this earlier in life. I ask that you please keep Josh Turner in your prayers.

It’s a Planet not an Empire

This morning, on my way to work I saw a bumper sticker on a car that read, “It’s a planet not an empire.”

This bumper sticker states something that I believe as an American society, we do not strive to be in harmony with nature. In the minds of many, it is our manifest destiny to conquer the planet. Plunder, consume and dispose is the engine that drives our wasteful economy. Continue reading “It’s a Planet not an Empire”
