The Most Awkward Text I Ever Received

Technology can be a wonderful thing. But, it can also be dangerous. A little over a year ago I received the most awkward text of my entire life. I thought I’d share my story in hopes of protecting you from suffering a similar experience. We were a few weeks away from my youngest brother’s wedding in Omaha, Nebraska. The extended Thorne family is a fairly close-knit group and texts were flying a mile a minute as the wedding approached. Soon, a large family group text began, filled with cousins, aunts, uncles, and my brothers and me. On July 2nd my cousin ...

Manziel: The Quarterback with Average Height

This coming Sunday, Johnny Manziel becomes the starting quarterback of the Cleveland Browns. He's known for a lot of things;  his arm strength, mobility, charisma, and for some reason his height.

But, if he's going to be called "The short quarterback," then I think he should wear that title with honor. Johnny Manziel could stand tall and give a voice to the height-challenged all over the world. If you've ever reached for something and had to ask a friend to ...

To keep his bunker sufficiently stocked, he would make numerous trips to the grocery store every week. But, one morning on his regular, mid-week trip to the store, everything changed. As he ...

Video: Classic Jesus Video Parody

What was Jesus like? I've heard it said the biggest job of discipleship is to bring people to Jesus. Then Jesus can do His work in their life. The problem is many people have big misunderstandings about what Jesus was really like. These 4 classic Jesus parody videos play off those misunderstandings. They're meant to poke fun at misperceptions of what Jesus was like and not make fun of him in anyway.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQeFG6Q87uA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cAb8qoXraGw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pCTAgxsLE3Q https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3hUaMahxXi8 What was Jesus really like?
