Did anyone watch American Idol last night? I was pretty speechless after it was over. The only thing I could think of saying out loud is how stupid I am. I’m here in suburbia in a comfortable condo with everything I need and everyone I love. I worry about things that have no value in the end.

What we are we (meaning the Church) doing about this? Why aren’t we the ones raising the money and helping? Believe me, I am preaching at myself…

Our worship arts ministry is doing a cool thing this summer. We are helping Blood: Water Mission by raising at least $1,000 to help build wells in Africa. That is just a start.

I don’t really have anything else to say…I’m just trying to think it all out.
