So you think you can dance?

I saw this a while back and let me say, I think this dance is awesome. I wanted to share it when I first saw it, but time escaped me. So here it is. Enjoy it! After the last blog, I thought I would put something a little more light hearted.

Christians and Politics

Well? I never thought I would see what I have seen in the last couple of days. To tell you the truth I voted for John McCain, but his loss was not what makes me sad, annoyed, angry or even embarrassed.

What makes me all those things is the way I am seeing Christians react to the situation. During a time of historical significance as this, I would assume that as Christians we would stand up and be living above reproach. That we would look at the opportunities for us to be humble, trusting and eager to have some sort of voice.

Unfortunately, that is not what I have seen, heard or read. What spurred this in me was a letter that was written by James Dobson's organization Focus on the Family. It is a letter that is written from a fictious Christian in 2012. Well, as I read through this letter I was in shock! I was shocked that a Christian leader would actually write or be a part of this letter.

The letter does not speak of what I beleieve my faith to be. It is a letter that speaks to fear and fear alone. It makes me embarrased to know that this is what a Chrisitan leader sees this time to end up at.

Here is an article by Jim Wallis speaking to James Dobson. I agree with him and feel like if I am wrong too, I want to hear your opinion. I am in complete agreement with Jim on this. I think he portrays exactly how I feel. During this historic time we as Christinas need to be praying, living above reproach, and being open to the fact that conversations will happen if we are being open to notice the opportunities. If we fall into a state of fear(which is not of the Lord) we will miss a ton. Here is Jim's view. It put meat to the bones for me. I urge you as well to read the letter I am speaking about before you read Jim's response. Here is the link:

"James Dobson, you owe America an apology. The fictional letter released through your Focus on the Family Action organization, titled "Letter From 2012 in Obama's America", crosses all lines of decent public discourse. In a time of utter political incivility, it shows the kind of negative Christian leadership that has become so embarrassing to so many of your fellow Christians in America. We are weary of this kind of Christian leadership, and that is why so many are forsaking the Religious Right in this election.

This letter offers nothing but fear. It apocalyptically depicts terrorist attacks in American cities, churches losing their tax exempt status for not allowing gay marriages, pornography pushed in front of our children, doctors and nurses forced to perform abortions, euthanasia as commonplace, inner-city crime gone wild because of lack of gun ownership, home schooling banned, restricted religious speech, liberal censorship shutting down conservative talk shows, Christian publishers forced out of business, Israel nuked, power blackouts because of environmental restrictions, brave Christian resisters jailed by a liberal Supreme court, and finally, good Christian families emigrating to Australia and New Zealand.

It is shocking how thoroughly biblical teachings against slander--misrepresentations that damage another's reputation--are ignored (Ephesians 4:29-31, Colossians 3:8, Titus 3:2). Such outrageous predictions not only damage your credibility, they slander Barack Obama who, you should remember, is a brother in Christ, and they insult any Christian who might choose to vote for him.

Let me make this clear: Christians will be voting both ways in this election, informed by their good faith, and based on their views of what are the best public policies and direction for America. But in utter disrespect for the prayerful discernment of your fellow Christians, this letter stirs their ugliest fears, appealing to their worst impulses instead of their best.

Fear is the clear motivator in the letter; especially fear that evangelical Christians might vote for Barack Obama. The letter was very revealing when it suggested that "younger Evangelicals" became the "swing vote" that elected Obama and the results were catastrophic.

You make a mistake when you assume that younger Christians don't care as much as you about the sanctity of life. They do care--very much--but they have a more consistent ethic of life. Both broader and deeper, it is inclusive of abortion, but also of the many other assaults on human life and dignity. For the new generation, poverty, hunger, and disease are also life issues; creation care is a life issue; genocide, torture, the death penalty, and human rights are life issues; war is a life issue. What happens to poor children after they are born is also a life issue.

The America you helped vote into power has lost its moral standing in the world, and even here at home. The America you told Christians to vote for in past elections is now an embarrassment to Christians around the globe, and to the children of your generation of evangelicals. And the vision of America that you still tell Christians to vote for is not the one that many in a new generation of Christians believes expresses their best values and convictions.

Christians should be committed to the kingdom of God, not the kingdom of America, and the church is to live an alternative existence of love and justice, offering a prophetic witness to politics. Elections are full of imperfect choices where we all seek to what is best for the "common good" by applying the values of our faith as best we can.

Dr. Dobson, you of course have the same right as every Christian and every American to vote your own convictions on the issues you most care about, but you have chosen to insult the convictions of millions of other Christians, whose own deeply held faith convictions might motivate them to vote differently than you. This epistle of fear is perhaps the dying gasp of a discredited heterodoxy of conservative religion and conservative politics. But out of that death, a resurrection of biblical politics more faithful to the whole gospel--one that is truly good news--might indeed be coming to life."

Today is the day!!!

I saw this video today! Wow! What an amazing reminder of how to live life. Live it for the day. Here is a family that decided to be sad later, to mourn their son later. This awesome way of thinking and believing helped them to live for today. They were able to celebrate and love every second with this precious child.

I watch this video and just sob. I relate so much to Eliot. I never had his sickness, but I was born 2 pounds and should not have survived and yet here I am. I wish I could say the same for Eliot, but the Lord knew how long he needed to be here to help change the world.

Please watch this video and try to remember to live for today. Not for tomorrow or for the next big event. Live for today!! Tell the people that you love just that. Let the people in your life know now how you feel. I hope this is a great reminder for you.

Small Group Interview

Hi everyone! I wanted to share this interview. Andrew Lawson who is a mentor of mine decided to interview me about he journey I took with the Small Group that I led at Mariners. I wanted to share this for a few reasons:

1. I want you to go to Drew's website
2. I want you to hear that anyone can do it and maybe you will be enticed to do it yourself
3. I want you to know that God works through anyone. If He can work through me, I assure you that Miracles can and do happen everyday.

Let me know what you think? Email me or just leave me a comment.

I am so impressed with this woman!

I was so impressed with Sarah Palin tonight! She was funny, tough, eloquent, attractive and humble! I really appreciated her ability to hold the stage and the crowd. She was definitely someone I would follow. I appreciated her humble spirit, and yet applauded her ability to share her accomplishments and not seem boastful. I also was very impressed with a matter of fact nature. No fluff in her. If you missed her speech, here it is. Let me know what you think!

A New Look

So I went to go get my haircut today and was told that they were going to make me look like a new man. I was so scared! I was not allowed to look in the mirror the entire time! I saw the stylist pulling out machinery that I never thought could be used on a human. Well, an hour and half later this is what I saw!

I am not used to it yet, and I do not think i will ever be able to replicate it, so I thought I would ask the people closest to me what you think. Should I learn how to keep this do? Please let me know what you think. Should I go back to the old Kurian? Isn't life tough? All these decisions? Okay thats a bit over the top!
