This Video Will Wreck You

Finding this video yesterday and the other variations of skits similar to it reminded me of the power of drama. Such a simple skit coupled with a powerful song from Lifehouse creates an unforgettableimage of Christ's love.

Yesterday, after watching a few versions, I sobbed. Full on ugly cry.

Was it due to my gratefulness of Jesus's love for me? Was it my astonishment of how much He also loves you? Maybe it was the vivid picture that no matter how far we stray from Jesus, He is faithful...waiting for you and me. And once we fix our eyes on Him, He'll hold back the tidal waves of evil in the world because He has overcome them.

Or maybe the video touches me because the focus of these skits is always a young girl and I think of how precious my daughter, Georgia, is to me. I'm a blessed man.

Be prepared. If you fully focus on this skit and the music - this video will absolutely wreck you. And that's okay. Jesus loves wrecked things.

I Don't Get Lent

At the risk of offending or disappointing some people...I just don't get Ash Wednesday or Lent. Every year, nearly a week before Ash Wednesday, the posts start coming in about what people are considering giving up for Lent. The list is rather diverse. From coffee, sodas, and candy to social media, TV, and video games. I often wonder if people are just trying to outdo their friends. "Hey, look at what I'm giving up for 40 days! Bet you couldn't do that! But I can cuz I'm doing it for..." And that's when I my mind ponders...why are these people giving up stuff for 40 days? Is it for themselves? For God? For their church? All the above?

Die Rush Limbaugh!

On the Eve of New Year's Eve, Rush Limbaugh is rushed to a Hawaii hospital with chest pains. News reports mention his condition as "serious" but little information is available. Hours later, it's reported that he's "resting comfortably" at the hospital. The hours in between paint a pathetic picture of our country: New York Daily News described Limbaugh as a "radio loudmouth" and a "right-wing talk show host." The article also mentions that Rush's "nemesis" President Obama and "target of Limbaugh's bile" Nancy Pelosi were also vacationing in Hawaii this week.

Grateful During Unemployment

Two years have passed since I last scribed in this blog. Much life has transpired during that time. Too much to really unpack here. Then, I was a few months into a new public sector role with the City of Baltimore and starting to pursue the dream of rebooting the paranormal broadcast TV news series I co-created with Darren Dedo called "Unexplained" as a YouTube docu-series "Unexplained Cases."  Today, I am unemployed and "Unexplained Cases" has grown but has yet to generate revenue.  In July, I was dismissed from both my part-time weekend job at Grace Community Church and my City of Baltimore job. I've never had the pleasure of being released from two jobs in a month. Technically, I was released in June from Grace and my separation date was July 3. My last day of work at Baltimore was July 23 and my separation date was September 23. Unless one has been through an extended period of unemployment, one cannot understand the emotions that are stirred. For
