So in a couple weeks (on February 5th), Mark Driscoll is coming o talk about some of the nitty gritty goodness from Song of Solomon. The people hosting the event are having a contest for people to answer why it’s important for your friends to go to the conference. There are three contest winners, and those lucky three get a backstage pass to meet Mr. Driscoll as well as receive a DVD-boxset of the conference.
Here’s the catch — you’re supposed to answer the question in a Facebook note of 100 words or less. I did that, but I also made a video! I still recite my 100 word answer; I just added a few things to it. Here’s the video, which is why my past two blog posts have been shorter than usual:
Needless to say, I really want to win!! Winners are judged on creativity (I think I got that one down… I mean, who else is going to make a video!?) and traffic/likes/comments on the original Facebook note.
I guess you could say this is my first video blog? I am definitely thinking about doing them more often. Let me know what you think.
Here’s an encouraging passage I’ve been meditating on this week. It never gets old, but it often gets overlooked because of the popular verses just ahead of it. Have an awesome week.
Ephesians 2:1-7 – “And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience— among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind. But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.”
