Let me say just as humbly as I can…I rock at this.
I found the link to this awesome game, which I played awesomely, from Noel Heikkinen.

Sorry to belabor the point, but the weather here has been so bizarre and interesting that it’s worth harping on awhile.
Here’s a recap of our weather the past few days:
And that’s where the BUTs got me.
The weathermen kept predicting and repredicting snowfall amounts for an oncoming snowstorm. BUT…they all got it wrong.
Tulsa proper to the north and west got nothing. BUT…just a few miles south and east, in the suburbs…they got 3-4 inches.
I’m looking at the top of the page, and I notice that “re-thinking church” is in my blog title. But the truth is…I’m in a season right now where I’m re-thinking everything. Doctrines, beliefs, and practices I’ve taken for granted for most of my churchy life are getting taken off the shelf, dusted off, and looked at to make sure this is really how Jesus wants it, or really what He meant when He said _________ (fill in the blank). Some stuff is getting reaffirmed, and some stuff is getting reworked. It actually feels very healthy.
But this book title has got me thinking about religion in general. The word “religion” is just about as confusing as the word “church”, the word “grace”, the word “anointing”–these are all Christian catch-words that often mean different things to different people.
I promised myself I wouldn’t “go political” on this blog, because that isn’t really its purpose. But what’s happening in our nation’s political climate right now is so intriguing that I feel compelled to share some thoughts.
For the record…I am a Republican, although I feel the Republican party doesn’t do enough to promote social responsiblity and social justice. I also feel I should tell you that this is the first time in my history as a voter that there has not been a candidate in either party that I feel comfortable voting for. It’s extremely frustrating. At the time of this writing, John McCain has pretty much locked up the Republican nomination, which for me is about the same as not having a Republican candidate to vote for. More like voting between a Democrat and a Democrat-disguised-as-a-Republican.
