Bear Hunting in Alaska

The Pope took a couple of days off to visit the rugged mountains of Alaska for some sightseeing.  He was cruising along the campground in the Pope Mobile when there was a frantic commotion just at the edge of the woods.

A helpless atheist, wearing sandals, shorts, a ‘Save the Whales’ hat and a ‘To Hell with Bush T-shirt,’ was screaming while struggling frantically and thrashing around trying to free himself from the grasp of a 10-foot grizzly.

As the Pope watched in horror, a group of  Grace Point Pastors came racing up.  Pastor Mike quickly fired a 44 magnum into the bear’s chest. The other two reached up and pulled the bleeding, semiconscious Atheist from the bear’s grasp.  Then using long clubs, the other pastors finished off the bear and two of them threw it onto the bed of their truck while the other tenderly placed the injured atheist in the back seat.

As they prepared to leave, the Pope summoned them to come over. ‘I give you my blessing for your brave actions!’ he told them. ‘I heard there was a bitter hatred between Grace Point Pastors and Atheist environmental activists but now I’ve seen with my own eyes that this is not true.’

As the Pope drove off, Pastor Mike asked his buddies ‘Who was that guy? ‘It was the Pope,’ another replied. ‘He’s in direct contact with heaven and has access to all wisdom.’  ‘Well,’ Pastor Mike said, ‘he may have access to all wisdom but he doesn’t know squat about bear hunting!  By the way, is the bait still alive, or do we need to go back to Seattle and get another one?’

Obama to be a great president

joel-osteenI appreciate Joel Osteen for his ability to seemingly always look on the positive side of things.  On Larry King Live he said…

“I think he’s going to be a great president. He seems brilliant to me and just, I believe God puts the right people in office, so we’re praying for him and just believing that God will give him wisdom and strength,” Osteen said on CNN’s “Larry King Live.”

Now I am really impressed.  That is positive thinking to the max.  What’s next?  Hillary Clinton is going to be a great Secretary of State?  I can’t wait to read his next book.  All sarcasm intended and I like Joel.

Angel Tree Ministry

angeltreecolorlogoThe EPIC family and I delivered Angel Tree ministry presents today.  Why is it I start out thinking what a sacrifice I am making to give up a few hours on Saturday and end up getting blessed beyond expectations?

God is really patient.  Maybe one of these days, I’ll remember it is not all about me.  It is about how God will use me. 

Today, God used the EPIC family to shine a bit of God’s glory on a couple of families with broken hearts sensitized by life’s events.    We look forward to seeing how God will use EPIC to further invest in these families lives.

Don’t forget to say, “Merry Christmas!” in response to “happy holiday” and vote in the right column. =========================> vote over there==================>
