  20. 20. “No one was better at tweets than Jesus. Jesus was a master at sound bytes that bite with terseness and immediacy. In fact, he was always twittering the gospel in pithy, memorable phrases…<br />…and even expressed his gospel in The Great Tweet: ‘Love one another as I have loved you.’ I suspect his followers would be well advised to RT (ReTweet) everything he said.”<br />—Leonard Sweet, The Theology of Twitter<br />

  27. 27. This is my family.<br />When I look at this picture I feel all sorts of things.<br />I feel love, joy, peace, excited, infatuated, blessed, hopeful, and thankful.<br />I also feel stress, worry, pressure, dependence, hopeless, and like a loser.<br />They deserve someone leading them that knows what the crap they are doing.<br />A dad that looks like Brad Pitt, has the heart of Mother Teresa, the wisdom of Billy Graham and the strength of Craig Groshel.<br />The last one would have been a joke until I saw his guns at Catalyst West.<br />They deserve so much more than me.<br />Then I whimper to the mirror and look square in my eyes.<br />HE has called me to not only lead my family but to propel them into a lifestyle of Christianity that this world has not seen since the days of Christ.<br />One that looks far different then the one we live out today.<br />A radical one.<br />An unsafe one.<br />One that makes most Christians feel uncomfortable.<br />One that makes me feel uncomfortable.<br />But without that small voice screaming that into my head I might actually believe the nuclear family with a house, dog, white picket fence was the end. And that I suck for not providing that.<br />I live in a rental house with a whole floor empty of furniture.<br />But it’s not about that.<br />If that is what you’ve got then great. But that should only be the wall hiding the army that you are building.<br />The army of children that will actually help His Kingdom come.<br />Remember that our lives are but a vapor.<br />The blessings he has blessed us with will be gone tomorrow.<br />We have a short time to equip the Saints.<br />So turn off Sports Center tonight and go look in the mirror.<br />Remind yourself that our time here is short.<br />And we have a lot to do.<br />Be Authentic<br />
