so i ran into my friend eric tonight as i was working at the brian mclaren conference we are hosting here in seattle. to summarize what it’s been about so far, it’s basically asking the church to stop fighting about petty issues and focus our attention on global issues. duh. i agree. he says it way better than that with fancy charts and something about equity, but i just finished a 14-hour workday and i’m too tired to go into it tonight. perhaps tomorrow? :) but really, it’s all been really good stuff. and yes, in person even, he’s super warm and good-natured. this is our 2nd time hosting him and he’s a complete non-diva.
so anyways i haven’t been good about watching american idol this season but eric told me that they did “shout to the lord”. awkwardddd… he was flabbergasted, as i was at the thought of it alone. thank you youtube for its recap abilities. is it necessary to indoctrinate the rest of our country while they are just trying to watch their entertainment show? yeah this is “idol gives back” but is idol really just hoping to get the right-wing viewer vote? are they trying to expand their empire even further? what’s next, a “devo” by simon cowell? did anyone really enjoy this? what was the point? i’m confused…i wonder if jesus is too.
