Great Story: Jason McElwain

This kid played basketball in Rochester New York, my kind of hero. Sports needs more stories like this one.

  1. That was a very uplifting. I have spent the last several days watching A Rod give excuses for his dabble in steroids, or whatever he calls them, and the medias absolute dogged determination to pursue the story and massacre him. It got me thinking of something. Sabathia and this other pitcher that the Yankees aquired are getting paid right around one quarter of a Billion dollars for thier services. Based on an inflated anuall salary of 50,000.00 dollars and an estimated 5,000 dead in Iraq, Both Sabathia and this other guy are going to make as much money as all our dead in Iraq. Forget my disgust as a Veteran. I’m curious to know what we think of this almost “Circus Maximus” extreme, at a time when we see layoffs in the hundreds of thousands, and the economy in shambles. And then I see something like this,and for several moments it allows me to forget something that I have absolutely no control over and really enjoy the simple and pure. Great video thanx.

What's TheTempleBlog?

The TempleBlog started as my personal blog in October of 2006 with my first post: John Stott – it was a listing of John Stott quotes.

Now it is a different place. I mostly write about two of my convictions: Pacifism and Racism. But I also offer resources: both digital and personal. 

If you need Bible Study materials, want to take a more serious look at theology via an online course, or want to dialog with me about ministry and what I call Spiritual Construction, fill out the form here and we can connect and see where the relationship goes. 

SBK Productions is your online source for Homeschooling Resources and Art History Curriculum. She also offers several unique devotionals which incorporate Art History with the Church Calendar. Check out her upcoming Christmas Devotional series which would work for individuals, families, small groups, and churches.

Other churches have chosen  a middle ground approach: modified meetings in public. Others have chosen to simply meet.  Surrounding the challenges and variations  of Sunday
