The Last Word

    My 3rd grade class is currently singing along to Country Music. I never thought I would see several 50 Cent wannabees singing (and closing there eyes) to Tim McGraw. But that's how 3rd graders are. No qualms about what's politically correct. Last week a little 2nd grader ran in after lunch screaming, "Mr. Jackson! I didn't finish my sandwhich. Do you want the rest?!"

    Thanks for your kind responses below. I'm continually encouraged when I hear of others who are experiencing similar awakenings. Yesterday I read McLaren's new book, "The Last Word and the Word After That." It finished his New Kind of Christian trilogy that has influenced so many. His last script focused on hell, judgement and the Christian idea of after life. I didn't feel like it was as rich in content and story as the previous 2 books, but it was a good read none the less. I would highly recommend the entire trilogy to anyone experiencing thoughts of wandering, drifting, melting down, not fitting in, doubting, confusion...anything along these lines. They sometimes paint a beautiful picture of what being a Christian can look like in the days in front of us. You can find the last book to the right under "May Reading."

    I'm still not sure what this BLOG will end up being. Probably a collection of confessions mixed in with updates and rantings. I guess we'll see.

    Deconstruction is not destruction.

    It is HOPE.

Whatever you make of this blog, Josh, I'm glad you're exposing your thoughts...the honesty is refreshing.
