This week, while the rest of LDBC has been hip-deep in VBS I have had the pleasure of teaching a middle school week dubbed “Unhindered”. Now normally the words pleasure and middle school would be mutually exclusive (if I use big words they don’t know what I’m saying….let’s keep it between us), but I have […]


A Good Reason Not to Go to Church

Posted by jon on May 12, 2010 in but seriously... |

The Church serves many purposes. It is the gathering of believers, it is a place of worship, and it is our primary tool for teaching about our God. The church’s purpose is to be nothing less than the embodiment of God at work in our world. The Church as Jesus intended it was given a […]


More on the Bad Times

I saw this Skit Guys Video. I thought it tied into our previous discussion. God is Everywhere


The Bad Times Will Come

Posted by jon on April 15, 2010 in but seriously... |

Why do bad things happen to good people? Or perhaps better put, why is life unfair? I saw a comedian who claimed there could be no God because Hitler, murdering psycho, lived a longer life than this man’s mother, who was a kind woman. How could God allow this? Does this injustice not prove impossibility […]


Christmas Perspective

Posted by jon on December 26, 2009 in but seriously..., family and friends |

The Christmas gift was a tradition begun by the early church as a way to help those who needed it. So the natural progression of course over the last 1500 years is the cluster of “I, Me, My” that Christmas has turned into now. How did we go from feeding those with no food to […]


Where Selfishness and Generosity Collide

Posted by jon on November 22, 2009 in but seriously... |

Are Christians in the church the most selfish generous people or are we the most generous selfish people? Why are we all so focused on having life our way? What we want, what we like. At this rate the songs of our faith will be “It’s All About Me”, “Lord I Lift My Name On […]


What is “Behold the Lamb of God”?

Posted by jon on November 1, 2009 in but seriously... |

This was my script for the promo voice over on the Behold the Lamb video. I used it to announce that tickets for the students performance were on sale. I almost got off on a rant but pulled it in. But I enjoyed writing it and so like everything else in my life its on the blog. Enjoy. […]


the Odd Kouple – Where Joy & Sadness Flow

Posted by jon on October 13, 2009 in but seriously..., family and friends |

It took me a few weeks to write this. Its been on my mind every day since I heard. But how do you express what can’t be put into words? Let’s begin with some context. Common experiences unite us and draw friends closer together, so naturally when Tiff and our friend Nikki got pregnant within […]


What a 2 Year Old and a Mouse Taught Me About Worship

Posted by jon on October 12, 2009 in but seriously..., family and friends |

About 2 weeks ago Tiff and I took Cee to see “Playhouse Disney Live.” For those of you without a 2 year old, Playhouse Disney features the characters Handy Manny, the Little Einstiens, Tigger & Pooh, and of course Mickey Mouse and his gang. The show was very cute and a lot of fun for […]


Searching for Answers and Finding Me

Posted by jon on October 8, 2009 in but seriously..., not so deep thoughts |

This is a post that has been interrupted a couple of times this week. Once by an unexpected solar system model and once by a two hour chat with HP tech support (both of these are stories worthy of telling but now is not the time). So I’m pleased to finally be able to share […]
