YouTube Tuesday: Carman – FaithBasedBlog.com

By PaulT / December 19, 2017

Continuing in my recent theme of “kicking it, old school” … Can I be honest for a moment? I have to confess something that will probably get me a few stern talking-tos the next time I run into a few folks at church. But I have to say for one and all the following: I […]

YouTube … Wednesday? [UPDATE] – FaithBasedBlog.com

By PaulT / December 19, 2017

Marcos Witt—Comprehensive Immigration Reform Today, there are over 14 million people that live in the United States in the shadows and in fear. I’m talking about the undocumented that are here for one reason or another, but who have not been given legal or official status. I am calling on you to unite with me […]

YouTube Tuesday: “Because of Winn Dixie”

By PaulT / December 19, 2017

I never got around to watching the big movie I’d hoped to see over Thanksgiving Holiday. Just as well, this week is another week. But one of the things that helped alleviate any onset of disappointment was catching a surprisingly good movie on cable. Not normally, my cup of tea, but “Because of Winn Dixie” […]

You Tube Tuesdays: Altar Boys

By PaulT / December 19, 2017

Something a little different for YouTube Tuesday. Instead of plastering a single video up, I thought I’d devote the day to one of my favorite Christian bands of all time: the Altar Boys. Odd history I have with the band. The first song I heard of theirs was their most commercial and least representative of […]

Your Story – FaithBasedBlog.com

By PaulT / December 19, 2017

Interesting reading here after Marcos’ sermon last night. The message then was on the importance of our own experience and story as it pertains to the importance of Christ in our lives. It’s the simplest form of evangelism … and the most important. Hemant Mehta has gotten a fair amount of publicity as the “eBay […]

Your Best Life Now: Excerpt #1 “Dare to Believe For Greater Things”

By PaulT / December 19, 2017

(Pg. 76-77) Dare to Believe for Greater Things Will you dare to start believing God for greater things? God doesn’t want you to drag though life, barely making it. He doesn’t want you to have to scrimp and scrape, trying to come up with enough money to pay for food, shelter, transportation, to pay your […]

Yancey Excerpt: Of Vines and Branches

By PaulT / December 19, 2017

Just another outtake that I loved reading … If I find no self-evident reason for God’s silence in my checklist, I move on. I look on periods of blankness in prayer much as I look on suffering. It does little good, I have found, to spend much time dwelling on the “Why?” questions. The Bible […]

Yet Another Year on Top

By PaulT / December 19, 2017

» USA Today: Biggest U.S. churches ‘contemporary, evangelical’ In the wake of the … um, challenges … with Church Report’s old lists, Outreach Magazine sticks to some hard math in coming up with their annual report on church attendance. As it turns out, our count is the same as last year’s. I’ll offer a few […]

Yaconelli Outtakes (Part 1) – FaithBasedBlog.com

By PaulT / December 19, 2017

I still can’t get over how much I’m loving every word of Mike Yaconelli’s “Messy Spirituality.” But I think I’ve at least solved the mystery of why there’s no way I can read this book in one sitting: I just want to hang onto every word, every sentence, every story, every chapter, and so on. […]

Yaconelli Outtakes, Part 3: Messy Reality

By PaulT / December 19, 2017

“Messy Spirituality” – pgs. 90-91 Messy RealityOne look at the book of Corinthians and it’s clear the Christian life doesn’t take place in the rarefied air of perfection. Paul wrote his letter to the church at Corinth to help them figure out what Christianity means in the everydayness of life. Paul gives us spectacular glimpses […]
