Big thanks to Jonathan for posting this on his blog, it has helped answer some of my questions about the terminology of the emerging church:

New Orleans

This week (and last), I've been down in New Orleans on a work-mission trip with my church and youth ministry. So far, we've had a great time and have got a lot of work done. We are rebuildign the interior of one house and we have already completed a roof on another home. This week we will be building an entire back-half of a house. It's hot, it's hard work, and it's worth it!

I'll post some pictures when I get back. We took a tour of the devistation - it's bad. You haven't seen destruction until you've seen a shrimp boat sitting on a residential street, or a truck sticking out of (and through) a house.

P.S. I still don't like fish ;)

my week at summer camp

Well, I just got back from a crazy week at summer camp. I got the opportunity to speak the entire week as well as run most of the media/video stuff with Nathan. All in all, I think that the week went very well. We learned what it means to be a Catalyst and learned how God wanted to change us so that we can in turn change the world (turn the world upside-down).

We have tons of pictures and video from camp and I'm going to publish some of it in the next week or so. If you would like to see any of it, visit our camp website:

Just as I get settled in this week, I'm gearing up for another crazy trip to New Orleans. Our church is taking a mission trip to help those in New Orleans deconstruct and reconstruct their homes. Please be praying for us as we travel starting next Monday (June 19-29th).
