Where My Atheists At?!?

Hold on, hold on…for real…
I’ve been asked to speak at one of our highschool’s about two things; how Christian’s are treated by Atheists, and how Christian’s should be treating them. Now obviously I can only speak from my own view/experience, which is a little unfair to all of my friends/followers that I know have amazing viewpoints on things like this. 

SO

If you’d like to help (but don’t live in the area) I’d love to hear your thoughts and feelings. You can even leave it anonymously to stir things up!

Daily Thoughts…

It has occurred to me, that many Christians would rather watch someone be brutally murdered…than watch them have sex.

GETTING BACK BEHIND THE MIC… 
This Wednesday I’m speaking at our last instalment of the summers BIBLESxBONFIRES. Next week we also kickoff our new season at The B. With everything coming to an end / starting up again, I’m reminded of how much I need to get back into writing down my thoughts, and cultivating views on societal issues from a biblical perspective. Not that this isn’t a regular occurrence, it’s just that I try to calm down over the summer…a way of storing up energy for when it really matters.  Hope you can join me in some capacity, these things tend to be more enjoyable when there’s faces to share them with :)

#puertobunker2013

:: For anyone that was wondering what the heck that hashtag meant, and if you missed the special screening on Wednesday, here’s the final presentation for this years epic trip to Puerto Rico!
Again, it was such a blessing/honor/mind-explosion to be a part of the opening ceremony for a *new* Bunker in Fajardo…something I never thought I’d be able to witness…it wasn’t a mission trip…more like a family gathering.

iamOTHER presents “Stereotypes: In God We Trust?”

Such an interesting conversations about todays Christianity, with people that believe in so many different things…
I LOVE what the goth dude who believes in nothing says; “in 30yrs Christianity will be an App on your iPhone” a brilliant and bold statement. 
And watch carefully when it gets to the conversation between the two Christians who don’t agree about homosexuality. One is loud, one is quiet. One shoots blame, one wants understanding. 
And then there are always the crazies running around shouting…
I particularly like the views of the elderly women, who say that this generation has fallen away from the idea of living for something beyond our materialistic world that we can only see within our lifetime. 

Some of it is heavy, and closer to the end some of it is intense, but I think all of it shows truth in it’s own way - and all of it needs to be heard.

PROJECT: HEROES 
For a while now I’ve wanted to work on a Bible Study at The Bunker that combined media, real life situations, and scripture…all on a level that we could interact with. Now I know that Season1 of Heroes (NBC) is a few years old, but to me it is undeniably the best spot of TV, ever (granted the other 3 weren’t the best…). For those who haven’t seen it; it follows a random group of people (pictured above) from around the world, who all find themselves developing abilities…while at the same time gravitating towards NewYork for an unknown-foreshadowed event. Some can fly, others can read minds, and even teleport through space and time! Think it sounds like a comicbook? Yup, it’s backed by some superhero heavy hitters (StanLee even makes an appearance!) What makes it relatable is that each character is going through their own struggles; helplessness, unconditional love, trust issues, questions of the soul…all with an overarching quest to answer the question of “why are we here" My goal is to adapt episodes for The Bunkers Friday Night Bible Study in a way that will (hopefully) be entertaining, encouraging, and educational…I also like sharing my favorite things with people :) God created me to be a geek, and to pass on His love in geeky ways!

So I made another one of these. And I talk about something I watched on Netflix. And then a bit about how we’re all weird. and there’s a concert…

Let your life teach more strongly than your words…teach the way Jesus did, by simply taking the everyday events of this world, with all the pain and struggle, and redeeming them for good!

2013: Day 20

I realize I post a lot about my hobbies; gaming, biking, drawing, movies, books, etc. However, I want (I guess my newer followers) to understand that the thing that comes first and foremost in my life is my faith. I am a Christian, and am fortunately in the position where my belief is also my job. With a spot at a local community center I spend nearly everyday studying religion in some way. The Bible, bands and their music, talking with people, checking out new lectures, or whatever else pops up. And as anyone with a job that requires a lot of dedication will understand, it helps to not focus on that job when you’re not on duty. I’ve been told over and over that Youth Pastors tend to burn out after only three years…I want to surpass that. Therefore, though I may be “on call” 24/7, I like to take full advantage of my down time.
So, there’s some insight into why the ‘Hebblog’ is so dang nerdy. My belief requires me to believe we have been blessed in this life with things that are meant to be appreciated. Art, stories, and the ability to find joy in the little things…I think that can be a good representation of love. And that is what I believe I am to strive for, to work towards, and to share :)
