Clothes = Clothes for children

These companies below take the Christian t-shirt to a new level. I love clothes and I love art. I am a consumer and we are all consumers no matter how much you say you are not. We buy stuff all the time. We consume so much stuff everyday. OK, I am done using the word stuff. I believe if we are going to buy clothes, shoes, and etc. , then why not buy it from a company that supports world hunger. Most of these companies give a portion of their profits to organizations based in Africa, South America, and Asia. For example, Tom Shoes donates a pair of shoes to Argentina every time one pair is purchased. That is pretty awesome. I am not forcing any of you to spend more money by all means, SAVE YOUR MONEY but if you need to buy some trendy clothes then check out of these sites below. I probably should practice what I preach. LATER!!!

Got Church?

Cool fact:

A new survey has found that three-quarters of Americans who haven't gone to church in the last six moths say it is "full of hypocrites". About 44 percent said, " Christians get on my nerves."
However, the LifeWay Research study revealed that more than 75 percent said they would be willing to listen to a Christian talk about their faith.

So what are we (you) waiting for...

2 Timothy 4:5 (Message version)

3-5You're going to find that there will be times when people will have no stomach for solid teaching, but will fill up on spiritual junk food—catchy opinions that tickle their fancy. They'll turn their backs on truth and chase mirages. But you—keep your eye on what you're doing; accept the hard times along with the good; keep the Message alive; do a thorough job as God's servant.

Middle School Mania

This week is middle school mania. A couple of buds and I were asked to lead worship for this youth retreat at this private school. The kids are very energetic and that is very surprising for 8 o'clock in the morning. I am definitely feeling the affects of waking up at 6 in the morning. My wife is happy because she can now turn all the lights on. FYI: My wife is a school teacher. Anyway, Tommy Oaks is speaking and it is pretty good stuff. The theme of the week is freedom. Its a pretty general theme but I think freedom is one of those things we need to be reminded about. We have freedom in Christ and Christ frees us from sin. Did I mention that Tommy Oaks is speaking.

Have a good week!!
