What Kind of God Do You Have?

I think this is exactly what it would look like for a Native American to discuss religion wit an Orthodox Jew Smile.

I Miss George Bush!

Politics seems to be going from bad to worse these days. Fiscal Cliffs, Government Health Care Mandates, Tax Policy, Gun Control, sometimes it just feels like the whole world is falling apart. Times like these can make you long for simpler days when life wasn’t nearly this complicated, like the days when George Bush was our president.

Of all the things that I miss about President Bush the one thing that stands out above all the rest was his facility with the spoken word. His soaring rhetoric could take you to the heights of joy and walk you through the depths of despair…although more often than not it just brought a bewildered look to your face and a chuckle in your belly. Here’s an example.

Holland vs the Netherlands

This year Amy and I will celebrate our thirteenth year of marriage. She has brought so much joy into my life through her friendship, her tender care for me and the family, and her beautiful spirit that I consider myself to be a remarkably blessed man.

When we met in 2001 I have to admit that there was a little bit of culture shock due to the fact that Amy is Dutch and I’m…well…I’m kind of a mut. In any case, if I’d had this video in 2001, it probably wouldn’t have made any difference with the culture shock, but it’s interesting nonetheless.

How Does a “Cool Pastor” Keep His Family Cool?

You can go ahead and file this post in the completely “random” category, but I’m pretty excited about this, so here it goes.

Snoopy-coolI am one of a very select group of men who can honestly call themselves “Cool Pastors”. As far as I know, there are less than 10 men who have ever been able to call themselves “cool pastors” without sounding goofy. The reason that I belong to this elite group of men is because I am the pastor of a Cool Church, Cool Community Church to be precise.

While I do live in a Cool town and shepherd a very Cool flock, the sad truth is that it isn’t always cool in Cool. In fact, sometimes it’s downright hot here. That’s why it’s important for me to keep my family cool, which is what this post is all about.

Now for most people the question of how to keep their family cool isn’t worthy of a blog post, they just turn on the A/C and magically they are kept cool. But, things are different here in the country. Some of the “high fluting” folks in our community have those fancy shmancy A/C units, but the rest of us have to stay cool the old fashioned way with a swamp cooler (by the way, that last sentence was meant to be a joke, almost everyone I know here in Cool has an Air Conditioner).

In my war with the heat, I have found two powerful weapons that have kept my house at under 77 degrees all summer long (even on 102 degree days). The first is what I call my secret weapon, and the second is what I call my super weapon. Here’s the run down:

1) Secret Weapon – It took me over a year to learn this so in the hopes of shortening your learning curve should you ever become as Cool as I here’s the secret. Learn your swamp cooler on over night. It’s true that a swamp cooler can’t do a whole lot of good against a blazing 100 degree sun, but if you’ve got your house down to about 62 degrees over night then it’s got a lot further to go during the day. This has been the single most effective thing that I’ve done to keep cool.

2) Super Weapon – In the worst case scenario, where the secret weapon doesn’t work I pull out my super weapon in a last ditch effort, before I pack up the kids and go to the church sanctuary for an all night movie marathon of Pixar films. The super weapon is ice! I climb up on the roof (where the swamp cooler is at) and put a frozen jug (usually a used milk carton) of water right in the pan. The ice cools the water, which cools the swamp cooler pads, which cools the air being pumped into the house…at least that’s the theory, I haven’t actually had to try this since my secret weapon is so unbelievably AWESOME!!!

Neither of these things do anything to keep rattle snakes away (rattle snakes love to come out when it’s hot), but that’s what I have this for:
