Gotch, Jr.?

Well, the rumor is true. Kristi and I are expecting, well, not really me, but Kristi is expecting. She is due June 26th. How about that, I am going to be a dad. Is that scary or what? Well, I guess that is not as scary as Scott being a dad. We won't know what it is until Feb., but we won't be those weirdos that don't tell anyone (no offense to any of you weirdos). I will let you know as soon as possible what it will be and the name. If you have any suggestions let me know? Thanks to everyone that is praying for us, I look forward to this exciting time in my life. I hope to post some pics of the baby from the belly soon.

Blogging has taken a back seat!

Sorry that I have been absent from the blogashpere for so long. I have been really busy with my church and life in general. On top of all that we have been having internet problems at the church for about a month. I have a lot to say as of late, but seem have less time to say it. The main issue that I am thinking about and reading about is the emerging church. I am reading a couple different books: Emerging Churches by Gibbs and Bolger and Blue Like Jazz by Miller. I would also like to read some books by Mclaren in the near future. I am trying to wrap my mind around this movement and the issue surrounding it. The main question in my mind is "is the emerging church movement overall good or bad for Christianity?" The secondary question is, "I have been conditioned to believe Post-modernism is bad, so how can churches and Christians now claim to be post-modern?" If you would like to help me in my quest for answers please feel free to post a comment. I hope to be blogging on a regular basis soon.
