Luge Ride

Last week, while traveling for Christmas, I took a rather wild ride on The Luge. Now, The Luge is a homemade sled run designed and built by my uncle in their backyard. You start up on their deck, slide down a snow-packed ramp, race along the track, and wind up in the woods behind their house. It was way fun. :)

I tried filming the trip once, and it turned out pretty well. I nearly fell out of the sled, but still...

Sometimes I Feel Like An Ent

"I am on no one's side, because no one is on my side."
-Treebeard, Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

That's how I feel sometimes about the current state of things in this country. It seems like the government is awash in apathy, corruption, twisted ethics, and totally un-biblical governing. Then I get really scared when I think that the reason these politicians are elected is because the majority of voters supported them.

Even as I think about that though, I'm realizing more and more that God has everything is under control. I don't know what He has in mind, but I know it's way, way better then anything I could come up with. That's awesome.

John Musil is my hero too!

I saw this on Greg Stier's blog back before the election and I thought it was both awesome (go John!) and thought-provoking. I highly recommend it for all of you politically active folks reading this. I can't help but wonder whatever happened to the staffer though. Anyways: John Musil is my hero!

Urban D. - "Un.orthodox"

I saw this video for the first time on Thursday (on a Christian music video show called The Zone). I liked it enough that I decided to post it. Anyway, Urban D. is a rapper and a pastor, and he does both well. Sounds a bit like KJ-52. Good stuff.
