Gloria

Hey there! Next month I'm organizing a Worship service for all the area campus ministries called Gloria. Gloria is a gathering Christians of all backgrounds for a time of worship of our God. In this season of tests, stress, full schedules, and headaches we can come together and remember that our lives are centered on Christ. And there are varieties of ministries, and the same Lord. 1 Cor. 12: 5 (nasb) This verse always inspires me! It's going to be on April 10 at 8pm New Life … [Read more...]

My Friend Ron Just showed me this video this weekend.For me it was a powerful reminder of some things about God that sometimes I forget.Check it out!I am curious how some of you guys feel about this little video.

Blood Curse

This week I went to mass with my Girlfriend, who is a catholic, and the account of the crucifixion found in Matthew was read. One verse in particular stuck out to both of us. It’s found in chapter twenty-seven. I’m sure many of you are familiar with it. It’s known as “the bood curse:” In the greek it reads: Ιδων δε ο Πιλατος οτι ουδεν ωφελει αλλα μαλλον θορυβος γινεται, λαβων υδωρ απενιψατο τας χειρας απεναντι του οχλου, λεγων αθωος ειμι απο του αιματος του δικαιου τουτου; υμεις οψεσθε.

Tattooed Jesus Part II

In the last post we talked a lot about why people get tattoos. But I didn’t mention the primary reason I get tattoos. For me a tattoo is more then anything an expression of who I am at a point in my life. For me the process of getting a tattoo is something like this. Inspiration – I often find an image or an idea for a tattoo. If it’s an idea I try to create it with my limited artistic ability.Archive – I take these Ideas and archive them in a folder called tattoo ideas. Mos … [Read more...]

Tattooed Jesus

These days tattoos are everywhere. All the kids are getting them and ever a good number of grandma’s are jumping on the ink n’ needle train. And I think that’s splendid. I love tattoos! I really do. I have 9 at the time of writing this and I’m working on a new piece with a friend of mine this week which will hopefully make it to an epidermis near you soon. But why do people get tattoos? Sometimes a tattoo comes from a desire to be accepted by your peers, to seem ‘cool’ or to impress people you r … [Read more...]
