i'm all, like, y'know…

a few mondays ago, i began teaching (with some team teachers) a class on the Christian worldview. what got me interested were some startling statistics… like 80-some-odd percent of church-going freshmen in college were walking away from church by the third sunday in october… never to return. or the fact that only 2% of evangelical young adults can articulate their faith. say what they believe in a way that is non-confrontational, yet truthful and loving. speaking with clarity and conviction. is this a lost art? articulate speech?
i came across this today, and it struck a chord with me. i've often been accused of injecting too many "likes" into my speech. maybe it's all the work/hanging out with high schoolers…maybe i'm just inarticulate, you know?

on an unrelated note, the big, massive storm we were to have ended up fizzling into some snow, much rain and some freezing rain. for all the children interested in making a snowman, i think the window of time for that to happen is rather small, and expecations for a nice, white frozen man may be a bit unreal as most of the snow is realy just a slushy mess.

but it is pretty on the trees. it's neat to wake up to a whitewashed world. it may not be so neat tomorrow morning as they're calling for temps around 16 tonite. that could make for a rather trecherous trek to church tomorrow.


  1. We had a little bit of freezing rain yesterday but no snow : (

    The kids are really anxious to see snow but I doubt it will happen anytime soon.
