Stuff on the Web

This cracks me up, I have listened to it a few times, “Stay at Home Dad Rap” (“I don’t do drugs, I get high on baby hugs”).  The juxtaposition of hardcore rap/guitar, and yelling with lyrics like, “uh-oh, uh-oh, someone’s diaper is smelly, uh-oh, uh-oh, it leaked on his belly” are just hilarious.

The List That Saved My Marriage.  Great true story.  Gotta remember that we only have control over ourselvs.

World’s Youngest Preacher.  Not sure where this falls on the cute/creepy spectrum, but sadly, the kid is about as coherent as many preachers with that style.

Don’t know if you are familiar with the latest in Pentecostal contoversies, but this is interesting.  Dan Edelen has been commenting on all of it and he is very helpful.

Reading Suggestions (Sermons Online Updated)

I finally finished uploading recent sermons.  Go HERE.

Here are some interesting (to me) things I found that you might like to read:

This is a funny search engine for news/politics with video of two commentators.  Does anyone know if these folks are on TV?

This site, Operation World, gives one nation per day to pray for with lots of details about that country.

Another great post by Bobby V, one of my fav bloggers:  Practicing the Presence of God

To the Source has either a book or post discussing “10 Books that Screwed up the World.

Answering the Church of Christ is a site by someone outside Churches of Christ discussing, refuting some ultra (he calls them hyper and realizes that these churches are not representative of all churches of Christ) churches of Christ who are on TV in his area.

Prayer Requests

What a week! It seems that every now and then you are bombarded with sad news. Please pray for these situations.

The Nystrom family lost a father and husband last night. We (wife and I) met the Nystroms while in Italy. They were stationed in Naples (Air Force) and very involved in the Italian church. A great family and we have good memories of hanging out with them. Pray for Teresa and daughters, Bonnie and Zoe, in the loss of Chuck, who was hit by a pickup truck while riding his bike home from work.

Here is the Newspaper story of accident.

Pray for the Cope family who are grieving after a murder-suicide. They are family of my sister’s close friend. Paula mentioned it on her blog HERE.

Lastly, not as serious, but definitely some brethren who are in need of prayers. The Mt Pleasant church of Christ, where my uncle preaches in Bowling Green (KY), lost their building to a fire. They had plans to build an annex within weeks because of growth, but now they must start over and meet in a school in the meanwhile. Here is a news story.

I am sure this isn’t even everything in my sphere, but I appreciate your prayers.

I will share some links on Monday (maybe).
