More On 5.0
The genesis for the return came at…the skatepark.
If you want to be the coolest dad at the park, bring an iPad and buy pop for the kids now and then. 😉
I sat and watched and listened…to 12 and 13 year old kids talking bluntly about their sex lives.
I listened as they talked and made decisions about drug use, about relationships, and their parents…often the only one in the home.
Their parents were never seen for the most part.
Our kids are at great risk today.
When I wasn’t doing that I was reading and studying about the implosion of a society in Mexico and realizing the seeds for that same travail are planted here.
I searched for work and listened to stories from others doing likewise…with the same result.
I read voraciously about our history, our society, our faith, and our future and what I read frightened me.
I searched for God in all these things…and couldn’t find Him.
This is a very broken and fallen world and I am a broken and fallen man.
I need the church and I need community and I need to both learn and teach others to live in the reality of what is while looking for what is to come.
We try to do that here… and I want to continue.
God gave me a platform…gave us a platform…and I want to use it to facilitate things that look like Jesus.
You may have a story to tell or a word from God that helps you to navigate troubled times…I invite you to share them.
I want to open up the blog to other voices…if you want to write, let me know.
We go forward from here.
