Ultimate Dad n Lad!

Bryan and I have been doing "Dad n Lads" for a long time now. We've done a number of events and outings: Bookstores, movies, video game nights, White Castle, Waffle House, Big Steaks, the mall, concerts, Moe's, Pet Stores, etc. Just to name a few.

Tuesday night was yet another Dad n Lad...we went to the Yum Center in Louisville to see Rush. Our faces were rocked off...we high-fived, cheered, yelled and screamed. Great night! Great concert! I hope I'm kicking like these guys when I'm sixty!

Beezer...I love you...hope we go to more concerts like this! I just love spending time with you.

March Madness

The madness has begun and it is March. If you know me or follow this blog, you know that I'm a pretty BIG Louisville Cardinal fan. Lot of folks ask why...well, that's where I grew first Cardinal basketball game was with my dad when I was nine years old, I have great memories that go all the way back to 1980 when the Cards one their first NCAA title.

This basketball season Holly and I have had a ball watching the games (no pun intended!). We don't miss too many of them...the ones we can't watch, we are either listening on the radio or following them on our phones. We're big fans! Football and basketball!

The Cards are in the semi-finals tonight of the Big East Tournament. After routing Marquette last night...they'll meet up with Notre Dame tonight. Ought to be a good one.

The Big East Tournament is always held at Madison Square Garden in NY City. We have always wanted to go to the tournament...thinking of doing so next year. We'll see...

In the mean time here's some pics of our side is a media / TV room...the other side is the Cardinal den. Again, we're BIG fans!

Go Cards!

One of the many exciting things that I get to be a part of as a pastor is baptism. Over the years I have had the privilege and honor to baptize many...I really wish I kept a record of these from day one.

I'll never forget my first baptism. I was serving as the youth pastor at Broadway Baptist church in Lexington, KY and one of our youth made had become a believer and wanted to be baptized. His name was Chad and he stood 6 feet, 4 inches...a tall, lanky teenager.

To prepare for my first baptism I thought that I needed to practice, so I called my good buddy Andy Eldeen (he stood 5 feet, 11 inches). On a Saturday night before Chad's baptism I practiced at the church with Andy. I think I dunked him at least ten times that night! Dude, there will be some extra jewels in that crown for that! But it was so helpful...they don't teach you these things at seminary!

Everything went very well the next was such an honor to baptize Chad. I remember being so nervous, I didn't want to screw this up. But the important thing is that Chad followed in the footsteps of Jesus and publicly shouted to the world that he belonged to God.

Since that day I've baptized many...and I'll tell you this, every time that I have the opportunity, it is such a humbling experience to be a part of. I will never take those moments for granted...I'll always celebrate baptism.

Some of those that I've baptized since Chad??
-My son Bryan...can you say emotional?!
-Robert Coffey, one of my best friends in the world
-Husbands and wives together...
-Hundreds of teenagers as their youth minister...
-College Students...

Talk about a pastor perk! For me it's a very moving moment that I pray I'll never, ever take for granted.

The things we take for granted

Take ten minutes and watch this video of a community of Christians who are recieving the New Testament Bible for the very first time.

It's my prayer that I would thrist after scripture like these people are doing.
