THE AFTERS-LIGHT UP THE SKY
I love this speech. If you see my family, you'll notice I don't look a thing like my kids. We have Black, White, Hispanic and a little of this and a little of that. Racism is something we have had to face. I am sure that it is nothing compared to the generations before us, but unfortunately it still takes place today. The sentence below has become my prayer.
"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character." - MLK
Not just for Black, White or Hispanic children............. but for All Children!
How cool is this? During the Broncos vs. Patriots game, Focus on the Family paid to have this commercial aired.
If you want to engage culture and connect, you generally want to be relevant. But when do you feel it can go too far?
One listener named Jeff called in after our movie review for Joyful Noise this morning and had a few thoughts & challenges in regard to language and relationships. He works in Hollywood where he produces movies & TV and wanted to start a discussion.
This video has gone viral over the last 24 hours. It's posted every where... Facebook, Twitter and blogs. I've watched it several times and I'm still unpacking it. It's a poem about why Jesus is better than religion. This video comes with a warning, I've watched it at least ten times, and I'm still trying to sort out what it means to me.
Kim emailed in asking how to explain to her husband that going to a so called "gentlemen's club" is bad for their marriage. Listeners called in with advice and encouragement. This was really interesting.

January 14-16 – Martin Luther King Jr. weekend
I spent the end of last week in Atlanta at Passion 2012 and the coolest moment for me was standing next to Matt Maher as they were closing out the night on Wednesday.
Matt Maher wrote all the music for Passion 2012 with Chris Tomlin & Jason Ingram. They spend 2 weeks at Chris Tomlin's house writing back in April, and then they came back in November and finished them up. As I looked out over the Georgia Dome at 45,000 college students singing and yelling with their hands in the air, I looked over and Matt Marr was standing next to me.
He was yelling out the words he wrote and pointing his finger up in the air singing, “ We raise our white flag, we surrender all to you…. It’s all for you…… we raise our white flag, the war over…. love has come…. your love has won!”
