So…Am I Jesus Yet? #MyJesusProject

Following Jesus

It’s been a week now since I announced my newest project, which is to spend between 14 and 18 months figuring out what it seriously means to follow Jesus in our 21st century western world. Like, really. Tons of people say they are Christians, or even go so far as to say they follow Jesus, but which [Read More...]

trade up

Sometimes it takes a little bit of imagination to realize how much we really have to offer. I was messaging back and forth this weekend with someone who had just taken my “Jesus Dos and Don’ts” survey, and they noted how exciting the project was, especially the idea of how to feed 5000 people. Basically, [Read More...]

I always enjoy chatting with radio talk show host Welton Gaddy, based out of Washington DC. His syndicated weekly show, in partnership with the Interfaith Alliance, airs on nine stations around the country. But they also rebroadcast the segments on their website.

“Woah,” Mattias’ eyes bulged when he walked in and saw the red mountain bike, sitting in the hallway of our house. Is that for me?” “No buddy, we’re giving this away.” “But why?” “To help feed 5,000 people.” He looked at me for a minute, trying to figure out if I was serious. “You’re going [Read More...]

Putting Jesus in My Boots #MyJesusProject

I’m spending 18 months trying to figure out what it really means to follow Jesus. I mean, I’m not trying to be jesus, per se, and that’s probably best for all of us. I’m pretty sure I would suck at it. The thing is, Jesus called different people to different things, from what I can [Read More...]

trek-4900-alpha_650 2

I don’t think I’ve ever been quite as excited about receiving something I don’t get to keep. Just this morning, I posted a request to do a “trade-up” to help raise resources necessary to feed 5,000 people. As part of my 18-month project to try and follow Jesus, like for real, I figure taking on [Read More...]

IMG_4200

As you may know if you’ve read my previous posts, I’m in the process of doing an 18-month project in which I’m trying to figure out what it REALLY means to “follow Jesus.” One order of business my readers have suggested I take on is the miracles recorded in the Gospels.
