You say Tomato, I say Tomato...

I was reading this article on the new "Christian" movie Fireproof the other day and something caught my eye. (and no it was not Kirk Cameron's stunningly good looks.) Throughout the article most reference to Christians are either preceded or proceeded by the word Evangelical - i.e.

An atheist growing up, Cameron became an evangelical Christian at the age of 17 while he was playing Mike Seaver on the popular sitcom “Growing Pains.”

Cameron has an evangelical ministry called “The Way of the Master” with evangelist Ray Comfort, along with a camp for terminally ill children, Camp Firefly.

But then right after this last statement it drops the evangelical for the more contested Fundamentalist tag.

He has starred in three movies adopted from the “Left Behind” books, a series of apocalyptic novels that is popular with fundamentalist Christians.

So what does this mean? Are evangelical and fundamentalist simply interchangeable to the 'non-bias' media? Or is it that ONLY fundamentalist Christians like the 'Left Behind' books? Or are they just sneakily calling good 'ol Mikey Seaver a Fundamentalist? Or is this me reading too much in to something - Perhaps my mind isn't Fireproof enough...

On Eggs

So working on the blog header got me thinking about Eggs. I don't know why...but it did. Anyways, here is what I was thinking about. WAY back in high school a group of friends and I thought it would be "fun" to go to the store, get some eggs and use them in a non traditional way. That's right we thought it would be fun to juggle! And by juggle I mean go egging. I know, I know. How could I do such a thing?! I blame it on being an idiot. Cool? OK, so we thought it would be fun to go egging. Now my friend lived in a heavily wooded area next to a road - perfect place to hide out and let the eggs fly. And fly they did. That night we laughed, threw eggs, and got chased through the woods! Looking back on that night - I can't believe I was involved in such debauchery - but you know what? Like my buddy Earl says "Karma is a funny thing." You see, about 5 years ago my wife and I were driving home from a friends house on Halloween. We had just enjoyed some delicious pumpkin pasta and good company. All was well. That is until we passed a car, heard some shouting, and then watched as an egg splattered on our windshield. "What a bunch of punks!" was my first first thought....then as my past collided with my present...literally - I tipped my hat to Karma and said OK - now we're even.

I Need a Revelation

This about sums up where I am right now...

Give me a revelation
Show me what to do
'Cause I've been trying to find my way
I haven't got a clue
Tell me should I stay here
Or do I need to move
Give me a revelation
I've got nothing without you

How do I measure the success of my trip to North Carolina?

Is it by the beautiful mountains that my kids got to see for the first time?

Is it by the really cool waterfalls that we got see?

Is it by the natural water park that we got to play in?
Sorry. No.

Is it by my fridge being filled with glass bottles of Cheerwine?
YES. Yes folks it is!
