Per Fidem Intrepidus means "Fearless Through Faith". My courage isn't my own, it comes from the Holy Spirit, it's my faith in God and my personal savior Christ Jesus that calms my fears and allows me to move forward in this fallen world. Personally I'm afraid of a lot of stuff, but having the faith that Jesus adopted me as his little, sin filled, brother keeps me going.

Random Bits

I'm not looking for excuses to avoid writing blog entries, my backlog of excuses is longer than my backlog of unfinished draft posts. Ever try to write a coherent email, let alone a blog post, while on pain killers? The list of excuses is wide and creative, from illness to a hailstorm that destroyed our roof, gutters, and skylights.

However one week ago today my love, my gift from God: Mrs. WideAwakeChristian, was stepping down off a foot stool and looked down to notice that Darling GrandChild #4 was crawling right up behind her. She twisted to avoid stepping on DGC#4 and ended up falling and breaking her wrist. DGC#2 and DGC#4 with a combined age of 4 years and 3 months tried to help her but it took Grandpa to help her her up and whisk her off to the ER.

Returned from the ER with her arm in a splint, Mrs. WideAwakeChristian began complaining that her arm was numb, then she had severe chest pains. My documented superior intellect* combined a numb left arm with chest pains and came up with a reason to set a land speed record to the (very) nearby ER. Prayers to my heavenly Father were answered as the chest pains were found to be pericarditis (very painful but not harmful inflammation of the heart tissue) and the numbness in her left arm was the splint being wrapped too tight. As always the prayer warriors of the First Congregation of the Bereans came through, as did a lot of 462s** who joined in the prayer chain. Now it's all over but the healing. (I just jinxed the rest of August didn't I? No worries, I'm not superstitious. It's bad luck to be superstitious.)

Willow Creek continues to circle the drain as even more allegations of Bill Hybels sexual sin come to light. Many churches are beginning to see that the credibility of Willow Creek's Global Leadership Summit as well as the leadership of Willow Creek has been undermined by the Hybels controversy. One wonders if this undermines the credibility of the entire Emergent Church movement

Sock Puppet Jesus?

This is what happens when you substitute a disciplined Church with a qualified pastor for a goatpen blindly following a popular speaker because he is a popular speaker. I've seen what kind of damage this kind of childish behavior can do to a congregation. It's not pretty

  1. The world is spinning out of control as it descends to cultural oblivion. It is a truly upside-down world. I'm certainly glad I know the ending and who wins!
