In this article entitled Why I Called Out Joel Osteen and Joyce Meyer, I found this great little 10-minute video by John Piper that does a great job of defining what the Prosperity Gospel is and why it is so sinister. I loved "There are healings that happen in this world! I don't deny that. But I deny vehemently that everybody will be healed!" Also the thought that this life is so brief and then eternity! This is basically what I concluded by the end of my multi-part exploration on faith and healing earlier this year and why this reality actually brings me more comfort than a Santa-Jesus or Genie-In-A-Bottle-God.
Our 13-year-old is at an (adult) computer programing conference this weekend. If you have Facebook, please head over to https://www.facebook.com/thebanana140 and "like" his group's competition project, a Twitter based platform for startups and new companies that don't have a dedicated customer support staff. Thanks so much for taking a tiny moment of your time to make a big impact in his life!
Rick is making about five round trips around town today to have all the kids at their correct places and times through the day. I'm glad we basically limit the kids to one extra curricular each year! It's another day where I really wish I were able to help out with the driving!
It's been a pretty quiet day with my kidney. Stone must not be trying to move at all, because there is basically no pain and no blood so far today. Thanks for your prayers!
Well, I just got out of the shower, so onto jumping, wet, stringy hair and all. ;)
Day 7 of 100
You’re blessed when you’re at the end of your rope. With less of you there is more of God and his rule. Matthew 5:3 (MSG)
