• Immediate Needs

    updated 8.29.11

    We do what we do as missionaries supported by people like you.

    We also prefer to give away as much content as we can, and not cloud that issue with a lot of public requests. That said, we do have specific needs that are met by people who believe the work we do has value.

    If you'd like a short list of immediate financial needs, you can find it HERE.

    Thanks!

Thank you, Captain(s) Obvious.

I’m writing this from the glamorous Love Field in Dallas, with which it’s run down appearance,  strikes me strangely as a TexMex LAX.

Yesterday was spent with the Shady Grove Church family where I did an adoption seminar and a Zoe Foundation Banquet. I can’t say enough good about the Shady Grove folks.  First of all, they followed our banquet set up manual to a T.  Second, they were just incredibly hospitable.  So hospitable that I admitted during my presentation that the other states wish they were Texas.

Props to Shady Grove for doing a bang up job – I had a blast and got to sit with our dear friend Will Ford.  In the photo, he’s on the left.  Standing on a box.  OK, not really.

While haplessly navigating Dallas, I eventually discovered that my Blackberry Maps / GPS program wasn’t giving me realtime info.  At highway speeds, it was telling me where I was 30 seconds ago.  This might not mean much during a walk in the park, but during a highway speed drive through Dallas, where you were 30 seconds ago is nearly useless.  It doesn’t tell you where to go from where you are, and returning to where you were 30 seconds ago to reorient is out of the question.

I am a huge fan of history.  I read a lot of it and there’s a ton to learn about human nature, but there’s not a lot to learn about being reminded where you were 30 seconds ago.  Or even yesterday.

The church and the world are full of cultural observers that can tell you what just happened.  What we really need are messengers to interpret what is happening now and what it means tomorrow.
