Ragamuffin Soul…ragamuffintops unite

For those of you who don't click through to my personal blog, for the last two months I've been half-heartedly taking part in Carlos Whittaker's ragamuffin top challenge: an online weightloss support blog carnival. How's that for a description? Every week we have to post a picture of ourselves and update the group on how well or how poorly we've been doing toward our goal. I haven't really been working at the challenge..I've been busy playing on the lake. Although…

Gobena Coffee

I know it is kind of pointless to post about something after the Blog King, Carlos Whittaker, posts about it. But on the off-chance that there are a few of you out there who do not read Carlos' blog, I'm going to pass on an interesting find. Carlos tells the story of his friends Steve and Danae, and the adoption of their Ethiopian daughter. In the process of adopting their little Eva, Steve and Danae found their lives changed by…

Ragamuffin Soul Looks Foolish

In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day - Chapter 8 It has been awhile since I've posted a Snowy Day post. Life has been busy! But tonight I was drawn back to Mark Batterson's book, and we are now on chapter 8: the importance of looking foolish. Let's start with a quote: We try to look like everybody else.

Purpose Driven Network Summit

This is a good one, too. It is on the new media and how it can be used in the church.

Purpose Driven Network Summit – Ragamuffin

Because this is part of our group history...

Purpose Driven Network Summit

Talk about places we'd all like to be! Rick Warren called a "Stealth Summit" calling together top pastors to talk about ministry. In addition, he had top bloggers come to cover the event. Go to Ragamuffin Soul to see the list of speakers and bloggers, or go to the ustream live broadcast by clicking this link. They literally sit down some of the nation's top pastors and start asking them questions over the net and in person. Awesome.

Even Coffee Can’t Give Me Enough Energy Tonight!

I am conviced that the only thing between you and your destiny is one small act of courage. One courageous choice may be the only thing between you and your dream becoming reality. And it may be as simple as placing a phone call, downloading an appliation or sending an e-mail. But you've got to push the first domino. -- In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day by Mark Batterson It has been a long day here…

Some Fun Links

Maybe staying up until 4 AM last night was a mistake. I've been sick all day, and I can't string two words together. So I decided to share some links to some of the cool friends I've met lately, and fun sites I've explored. I know...kind of lame, but I'm a dragging puppy. This is Big John's blog. John was the official bouncer at Q, and he took the time to read so many of our blogs and make great…
