I know how to party, regardless of what my friends say.
Here I am at the 2012 Faith Bible Church student summer camp. In the video, watch for some of my moves like Jagger including: Charlie’s Angels, washing machine, Sonic the Hedgehog, and serpentine. All of this was in order to avoid paintballs, while minimally wrapped in bubble wrap and duct tape. Headgear included more bubble wrap and some broken sunglasses. The footage, editing, and sunglasses are thanks to @CLove37.
Hard to believe, but I was also a human target for paintballs at the 2004 FBC summer camp. I’ve got the picture to prove it.
Over the last month, a few bloggers I follow have posted this video of the Kimyal tribe receiving their very own copies of God’s Word for the first time, and I finally watched it. With tears.
I really enjoyed this twenty minute classical music experiment from Benjamin Zander. The primary take-away observation for me was: leaders with enthusiasm, excellence, long-view, and laughter can’t help but be contagious.
In this 18 minute video, John Piper asks and answers five questions about the importance of the Bible.
- What would happen if it did not exist?
- What would you give to have it or keep it?
- What does it make possible?
- How does it weather critics and detractors?
- How much effort should be given to spread it and preserve it?
He also references the ESV and why our loving of God and others depends on our thinking (about Bible truth).

In this video, Tim Keller answers the question, “What is the Bible really about? Is the Bible basically about me and what I must do, or is it basically about Jesus and what He has done?”
(via Justin Taylor who provides more details about the video as well as a transcript of why the Bible is all about Jesus, the true and better)
Absolutely spectacular. Here’s even more from after the storm.
