My family watched Prince Caspian over the Christmas break. There was one scene (included in this post from youtube) that stuck out and has made me go back to it several times.
Lucy has been the only one to see Aslan and her brothers and sister are questioning if she really saw him.
What do you want for Christmas? True North Church wants you to receive the gift of joy this Christmas. Join us outdoors at Lake Benson Park from 3pm to 4pm tomorrow as Jon concludes the 'All I want for Christmas is...' series with the topic of Joy. This is a family friendly event with refreshments afterwards.Print This Post
In December of 2006, we had our first Christmas Eve service at Lake Benson Park prior to our official launch in March. But, did you know that we had what I consider our first service a couple weeks prior to Christmas Eve?Print This Post
A funny thing happened to me yesterday at work.
After lunch, I was in a rush and left a dirty dish in my office. When I returned from a meeting, it was no longer dirty. I'm not sure if it was washed or licked clean but I appreciate whomever did it.
I watched Charlie Brown Christmas Tuesday night. I was glad I did because I forgot that there is a really great scene in the show. Charlie Brown becomes very discouraged with the commercialization of Christmas. He finally shouts out in exasperation "Isn't there anyone who knows what Christmas is all about?" Linus gives him the answer.Print This Post
Jon pointed out the I am second web site in his post today. I just watched the Josh Hamilton video. His story continues to make my hair stand on end. It is an amazing story of God's grace. God is always waiting for you to come to Him. I encourage you to watch the video to the end and listen to the story about the two dreams he had.Print This Post
Yes, I have a few of them. And, people give them to me as gifts.
Some of them I like but some of them go straight to Goodwill.
I'm talking of course about Christian T-shirts that mimic commercial procucts.
Here are a few for your viewing pleasure.Print This Post
That response made me think of all the weird Christian products out there.
Here is a quick list I found in case you need a last minute Christmas gift.
Donuts return this Sunday at 9:30am in the theater lobby. Use them as an incentive to invite a friend along as we start the All I Want for Christmas is... series. Also, check out the calendar for times and locations of the middle school and high school Christmas parties Sunday evening.Print This Post
I attended a Promise Keepers convention a few years back. Roughly 12,000 men are sitting in the RBC Center waiting for things to start. So what are 12,000 Promise Keepers to do to fill the time?Print This Post
Do any of you make checklists? Our family does. We make a list of tasks and when they get finished we check them off. Once a year, we make the Christmas checklist. It covers a lot of things.
- Gift shopping
- The tree
This Sunday, be sure to grab a few business cards promoting our upcoming series "All I want for Christmas is..."
The business cards are a great way to encourage friends and family to try out True North during the holidays.
Also, celebrate with us outdoors on Christmas Eve at Lake Benson Park. This is our third year at Lake Benson and is becoming a wonderful Christmas tradition.Print This Post
Looking for a one of a kind Christmas gift for that person on your list that has everything? The Planned Parenthood of Indiana web site is advertising holiday gift certificates for services of the recipient’s choice. What better way to celebrate the birth of Jesus?

I was looking at the blog stats today and saw that this original post (one of the very first) was viewed only once. So I thought I would spruce it up a bit and see if it sparks some debate.
20 When evening came, Jesus was reclining at the table with the Twelve. 21 And while they were eating, he said, "I tell you the truth, one of you will betray me."
22 They were very sad and began to say to him one after the other, "Surely not I, Lord?"
23 Jesus replied, "The one who has dipped his hand into the bowl with me will betray me. 24 The Son of Man will go just as it is written about him. But woe to that man who betrays the Son of Man! It would be better for him if he had not been born."
Jesus said some tough things, 'Lose your life', 'Gouge out your eye'. Judas Iscariot, who had followed Jesus for 3 years of his life is told 'better for him if he had not been born.'Print This Post
