Our conversation this week about hometowns led us to a familiar subject in eulogizing the people around us...to their faces and while they're living! Healthy hometowns take time to make sure that others know how God is using every part of their lives and stories. We talk about that, how healthy hometowns prepare us for God's planned adventures, and....Christmas Movies, apparently!
It's everybody's favorite random fact for the week!! DId you know that Beethoven went out of his way to ensure his morning coffee was made with exactly 60 beans per cup? I can relate to this type of obsessive nature with coffee....
IN THIS WEEK'S EPISODE, JOSH AND NATHAN DISCUSS "PROBLEMS" -- DEMONS THAT TRY TO CONVINCE US THAT THEY AREN'T THERE. "My Problem knew that the only thing worse than chains was loneliness." THat statement is a haunting one. When we isolate ourselves and hide our problems, our problems will hide us. Let's agree to work hard to bring our problems into the light of Jesus!
Today's random fact hurts a bit more than others (haha). Did you know that The word dude originated in the 1800s as an insult to men overly concerned with the latest fashion trends? Yeah, I didn't until just now! Gonna have to re-evaluate my "dude" terminology...
The little man is trying to get his point across! That said, I don't think that Jesus was trying to get us to listen just because he wanted cupcakes before dinner. On the contrary, Jesus said, "Listen!" As Lyndsey pointed out, that exclamation point is pretty important to see just how he was talking that day. Do we miss out on what Jesus is saying because we're not listening? Or do we hear jesus, but fail to obey? Lyndsey and I discuss the importance of listening and how it affects our church and our communities on this episode of Table Talk!

Happy Wednesday everybody!! Did you know that ketchup was sold as medicine in the 1830s? Will these random facts become a blog tradition? Who knows!
Prepositions and conjunctions are generally throw away words in today’s English. However, this causes us to miss out on really important meanings and applications when we read our Bibles. The keyword from this week was “with”. If discipleship could only be defined by two words, it would be “with Jesus”. Jesus appointed the 12 so that they could be with him, so that they could be sent, and that they may cast out demons. Whoa. Let’s talk about that, but even more, let’s be challenged by it and become better disciples and disciplers.
