A New Home

My new blog home on the web.

It's been a fun two years here at Blogger, but it's time to move to a new home.


YouTube's Version of "Soon"

When YouTube says something will be posted on your site in a few moments, it could be up to a week (as you can by the three that showed up last night).


Chris Tomlin arm wrestles Charlie Hall

You really have to see this to believe it!


Happy Birthday

Trying this for the second time!! I want it known that I did not forget Chris Tomlin's birthday. YouTube just ate my post.

Here's Chris and Israel Houghton from Passion 07 singing Friend of God.

Happy Birthday Chris!


How Could I Forget???

Happy 34th Birthday to my very favorite worship leader.

Here's Friend of God from Passion '07 with Chris and Israel Houghton.

Bye Bye Blogger?

I haven't been totally happy with Blogger for a while. Too few templates. Not enough flexibility. The beta changes helped, but I was still looking for something more. Along came WordPress. I've been checking it out this weekend and I think it will do everything that I need it to do and give me room to grow.

Here's the link. No word yet on whether the move is permanent, but it's looking promising.

Not for Lack of Trying

I'm feeling really bad because it looks like I totally forgot Chris Tomlin's birthday. On the contrary. I have tried TWICE to post a YouTube video of Chris and Israel Houghton performing Friend of God at Passion '07. So, if multiple versions start showing up.... sorry..

Happy birthday to my favorite worship leader!

Something Different

I'm tired of whining about being tired. Need to talk about something else for a change.

American Photo magazine has a great feature right now on Heroes of Photography. At first I wondered what on earth it could mean, but looking through the bios of the people they chose, it's a mix of people who have shown personal courage in continuing their careers despite obstacles and those who have used their cameras to expose injustice in the world.

The one who caught my eye is Hazel Thompson, a British photojournalist who recently shot the conditions in Philippine children's prisons. The images are striking and heartbreaking. The picture at the top of this blog is hers (and yes, those are kids in prison).

What kept my attention longer was a set of photo essays she's done called "Modern Day Crusaders". This series includes Christian Bikers in the US, cowboy church, surfer outreach projects, hip hop church and the 24/7 prayer team doing outreach in the clubs in Ibiza, Spain.

How very cool to find someone who blends their faith with the passion for photography to expose injustice and to record some of the most interesting areas of missions in our world.

Definitely check out her pictures. She's now among my top 10 photographers.
