Taylor Swift Hype

If you have a young girl in your household (as I do) then Taylor Swift is a name that you have probably heard a time or two. I've been pretty impressed with this young girl's reputation as of late. But I still have questions about her and the person I trust the most regarding culture and youth is Jonathan McKee. Click the link below and read his take on this most popular young singer.

How Should a Leader Respond to Criticism?

'Twitter Bible' Converts Scripture into Mini Messages

Saw this article this morning and was wondering what your thoughts were regarding a Twitter version of the Bible:

The Christian Post reports that the Bible is now available in a new translation -- Twitter. The German language book, actually titled "And God Decided to Chill," summarizes the 31,000-verse Bible in fewer than 4,000 tweets. Each "verse" of this "Twitter Bible" is under 140 characters long, leading to some paraphrased verses. For instance, the Genesis account of God resting after creation reads, "Thank God! It's Sunday!" Melanie Huber, portal manager of the Protestant Web site, which launched the project, said about the initiative: "We want with this action to encourage a debate about the Bible and to simultaneously show the modern possibilities that exist to receive and make known the Word of God," according to Ecumenical News International.

I'm a fan of Neal Boortz and though I don't agree with everything he has to say he does cause me to think. This was mentioned on his show recently and he posted in his "Boortz Blast." Read it and give me your thoughts.

We've all heard the tragic story of Lindsay Lohan - an actress with a promising future, however, a life spun out of control. What could have caused such a drastic turn? Dennis Rainey of Family Life posted this music video by Lohan that just might have the answer.

Articles of Interest

Sorry for not posting much the last few days. I've been reading a lot of blogs lately and have found a few articles that I would like to suggest you take a look at.

  1. Criticism 101 It's hard to deal with criticism and I thought Mark Batterson's article was very good.
  2. Make Some Money Chris Brogan is a well known social media guru and if you are needing some advice on making money on the web this is a great article.
  3. How Much Influence Does MTV Have? Jonathan McKee is a youth specialist and I've used his site for many of my own youth messages. He also takes a good read on the teen culture.
  4. Dan Brown's Loss of Faith Do you ever have one of those "what if" moments? What if Christians had a better handle on what we believe? Maybe Dan Brown would be writing good Christian fiction.
  5. 11 Quick Tips to Enhance Your Facebook Page I love Facebook!! I'm connected with a lot of old friends from high school and college plus I've made quite a few new friends. I found this article to be very helpful and I hope to use some of the suggestions very soon.
  6. Rob Bell Defines 'Evangelical' What does the term "evangelical" mean to you? I believe the term has been hijacked and it's lost the original meaning.
There's a lot more but I thought it might be "information overload" and there's already a lot here. Enjoy the articles and let me know your thoughts.
