Rendering Caesar: God & the World

This year my eldest is 8 so when we explained the presidential election, we had a lot of discussion about voting for the person who would be best for everyone, not just me. We explain that greed/selfishness is about valuing oneself over the community, talk about a  heave conversation. Here in Acts 5:1-11 you have stories … Continue reading

Reverse Black Friday Experience

Thursday morning at 6am I went to help with Equinox, which is a Thanksgiving meal program that serves about 10,000 in the Albany area…. I was really pleased to do this for the following reasons 1. My family is not the greatest financially, so I’m more able to give time 2. I have a 5& … Continue reading

Millennials and Achievement

This is a great video about the overemphasis on quantity over quality in education…but it also points to, what I think is a CRUX of the cultural issue of Millennials Are we lazy? Is it the economy? Do millennials have too high expectations? Who raised these millennials to think this way? Did we give too … Continue reading

Money, money, money

  This is a conversation I had with my sister earlier today…. Izzy: I don’t want to be a grownup anymore Me: I’ll be a grown up as long as I don’t have to worry about money all the time anymore. Izzy: Ok, deal… Student Debt (“According to the federal Reserve Bank of New York, … Continue reading

When your in debt…

Maybe this is really obvious to other people, but apparently its not really helpful to go to a big stewardship conference when you are about $100,000 in debt. (at least it not if your me….) There I’ve gone and said it. My family and I are over $100,000 in debt, and the end seems nowhere … Continue reading

When your heart is breaking….

Yesterday my heart broke….It was a difficult day with sad decisions and a good look at how temptation effects our lives…. Isn’t it interesting how it is easier to believe and remember evil than good? (for more on Good and Evil look here) If you preach a sermon 90% about gospel and 10% about sin, … Continue reading

Think One Person Can Change the World?????

We do too That’s where they got me. I mean I was pretty sure that Oberlin was the undergraduate program for me. I had talked to the dweeby guy, stood up to my counselor “You sure you want to move that far away” (um…DUH I hate high school), and all, but when I got the … Continue reading

Open Sourcing and Laziness

Ok, so what if this open source movement which started with the music companies and the digital downloading (actually it started with the record button on VCRs but I’m too young to remember that). Was a cultural shift today? If you look at communities sharing businesses, etc. this generation is into open source Examples include … Continue reading

Money=Symbol

I still remember when the stock market was falling. I had just decided (luckily) to stay another year in school, and the market was doing horribly, and everyone was running around like chickens with their heads cut off saying “the sky is falling, the sky is falling” no wait…that’s chicken little. They were actually saying “The … Continue reading

Hunger Games

Sometimes I feel like we can really relate to Hunger Games. Luckily things aren’t quite as bad as during the depression, but for me student debt is a real and heavy weigh in on my life as I tot up the bills and work towards providing for my family. My friend Charlie says student debt … Continue reading
