What does chicken have to do with Jesus?

The recent uproar over how the Chick-fil-a franchise donates some of it's profits is a bit funny to follow. Let's ask an overtly Christian company if they give money in support of their beliefs (or against their opponents if you'd rather), and then become outraged and act surprised that they do, followed by a cry for boycotting.  That's the sort of mindset and response I'm seeing from the majority of the Political Left & anti-Christian groups.

In the midst of tragedy, let's put the "Why?" aside.

In Aurora, CO this past weekend, a young man opened fire inside a packed movie theater.  A dozen lives were lost, and many more were wounded.  Even if this gunman offers an explanation (which he hasn't at the time of this writing), the question "Why?" will instinctively come to mind.  There's nothing wrong with asking this question, but there's nothing productive about asking it either.  The scriptures make it clear that wickedness abounds because of our rebellion against God.  In a word: SIN (Rom. 5:12, Eph. 2:2).  The answer is simple, but for most it isn't satisfying in a time like this.

Ultimately, until Christ returns and sin is no more, we will always have tragedy.  So let us not focus on asking "Why?", but instead let us ask ourselves, "Am I prepared for tragedy to strike?"

Bothersome Quote

Sometimes, you just need to distance yourself from people.  If they care, they'll notice; if they don't, you know where you stand.

This quote has popped up in my social media feed several times lately, and every time I see it, I cringe.  There's no way to know where it originated from, but I presume it was a woman since we are more naturally relational.  It sounds like a whiny cry for attention from a child.  I mean no offense to those of you who have re-posted this, but have you really taken the time to THINK about this quote?

Dinner

I made some cheesy onion potatoes with dinner tonight.  They turned out so-so.  Next time, I'll add bacon.

Stop Motion. Go.

This video is kind of adorable. I caught a YouTube surf this evening for a little while, browsing Stop Motion videos in particular. I really would love to find the stop motion videos I made when I was in Junior High school. I once made my room clean itself, and I also made some legos come to life - until the evil one had to be shot.

Writing

A children's story that can only be enjoyed by children is not a good children's story in the slightest. C. S. Lewis
