I had the privilege of preaching last Sunday on the Gospel text of the week, Luke 24:36-48. I have only preached a handful of times at Hope, and I’ve been experimenting with different styles of preaching: preaching from manuscripts vs. outlines, doing verse-by-verse exegesis vs. theological explorations, and so on. This time I preached from […]
Maybe no one else experiences this, but my life seems to run in cycles of varying levels of contentment and productivity. The majority of the time I feel like things are clicking along, life is in order, things that need to be done are getting done. Recently, however, I have been in one of my […]
I wrote a few weeks ago about the new Vigilance WordPress theme I switched to recently. Until yesterday I was running the theme pretty much as it came and finally got around to tweaking it a touch. I’ve changed up the font, link color, and added a few random pictures I found in Flickr to […]
I dropped the new WordPress theme I added to this site a few weeks ago because I just didn’t like it enough. After going back to the old theme for a while I came across the Vigilance theme and loved it. I haven’t customized it at all yet, but plan on doing a few tweaks […]
I said in my last post that I might create a dedicated site for my family’s motorsport hobbies and decided to do just that. The only content so far are some picture galleries and a write-up about last October’s 24 Hours of Lemons. More to come, though. Check it out if you’re intrested at CleaverMotorsports.com.
Remember that ugly BMW that I wrote about in November? Well, last weekend was the race, the 24 Hours of Lemons Houston Gator-O-Rama. I may write some detailed posts (or start a dedicated new site) about the journey the car has taken from an almost-junkyard-heap to an almost-race-winning performance machine. As for now, I will […]
I’m trying out a new blog theme to see what I think. I need to make a few adjustments to get it how I like, but I think this might work out.
I’ve been in St. Paul, MN for a little while taking an intensive class for my M.A. degree at Luther Seminary. Last night a few of us decided to go to Solomon’s Porch for our Sunday church experience. I mean, if you don’t have a home congregation you might as well go somewhere “hip,” right? […]
All of the above has kept me busy and/or in bed. Sometimes both at the same time. I’ve been sick for about two weeks and can’t seem to shake this crud I’ve got. It’s not something that makes me bedridden, but I’m just exhausted all the time. I bet I could sleep for 14 hours […]
The blog has been dormant for about a week due to a special project I’ve been working on. This October my younger brother Drew was a driver in the Houston race of the 24 Hours of Lemons, an amateur endurance race for cars that have been bought and race-prepped (excluding “safety” items) for $500 or […]
