Josh, the preacher at Arnold has put me onto a web site that is new to me. is an online presentation tool that one can use to create a presentation using flash. After the presentation is completed it can be downloaded or viewed from the web site. I have really enjoyed using it. It defiantly is better then PowerPoint on a few things but on the other hand it is limited in other ways. I guess the best is the open canvas to work on. There are no slides or animations to choose from. It is so easy to use that I started using it without any kind of tutorial (although there are tutorials if you want to watch them). Further more, the teens seem to be responding to it well. Best of all it is free to use! Now if only I had a Smart Board...

I have put together two presentations, check them out and feel free to comment on them.

Well I am not sure how many people saw it or if there is still a way
to see but as I tested a mobile blog it also posted my contact info as
well. Oh well it was only my phone number. I guess at worst I will
have some randome calls I do not want.

I know I have said this before but a renewed effort to post on this
blog as well as the Arnold church of Christ blog will be made. Any
words of encouragement would be nice.

On the way back from the beach tonight I witnessed a rather large gathering of Palestinian protesters . I feel cultured. I am not sure of my opinion on the bombing of the Gaza Strip but I do know it only took one event (9-11) for the USA to pick a country to blame. One does have to admire Israel for the amount of patience they have demonstrated over the past years. We are living in scary times. Pray.

Street View

For those of you that still read this I would like to encourage you to pick up a Windows Mobile powered device. After you do so go to on your phones browser or to Google Mobil on your computer and download google maps for you phone. If you have done so and have not gotten the recent update that includes street view than I highly recommend you update the program. I just did and am amazed. Google has gotten me out of some tough spots around St. Louis and street view will only be a further aid. The next time I am north of the Arch in St. Louis, I will not only be able to look out at the bombed out buildings through the window of the truck but be able to confirm that I have ventured into the DMZ of St. Louis via my Tilt.

By the way North St. Louis is only second to East St. Louis but you have to cross a bridge to get to the east. North is far to easy to wander into in my opinion.

Arnold church of Christ

We have a new program at the Arnold church of Christ. Over the next couple of weeks and months we will be updating our technology department. With this update we have started a blog that I will be posting on. The blog address is and you can link to it from this page. Josh Robinson, our new preacher is responsible for this so you all should thank him. He will also be posting on the blog and already has. So head over to the Arnold church of Christ blog.

Iraq War

After viewing this video I was literally stunned. I have spoken to several men who have been to Iraq and know a couple personally and have heard the same thing this guy is saying. I do not post this in support of McCain but it is defiantly anti Obama.

I think it would be more meaning full if it didn't have the little "support McCain" slogan attached to the end but it is none the less powerful.

You can view the video here

After you view the video I hope all will realize the truth to this. It is true of our country but also true of our Christian walk with Christ. No victory comes with out sacrifice.

Paul tells us in I Thessalonians 4:11 esv "that you also aspire to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your own hand as we commanded you." Also see Titus 3:1. Remember the persecution the first century Christians had to go through and suffer by the Roman government. I struggle with verses like this in the bible that are telling me to be respectful and obey governments that may or may not be in step with the bible. I know that God's law is higher than man's (Acts 4:19-20) and should obey God first. We are charged with the duty to respect the governments that rule over us (Rom. 13:1-7) but keep to the law of God first.

Having that said, if you are a Christian and slander our governing authorities (this included both Senators from Illinois and Arizona, Democrats and Republicans, past, present and future Presidents). Combining what the bible says about respecting authorities and participating in our constitutional rights of protest, freedom of speech, and voting rights is possible. It is possible if we do it with respect. I feel the above linked video is respectful; but slander, crude jokes and such are not.

As a Christian my first prayer is just what Paul says in I Thess. 4:11 (as quoted above). If we keep our same freedoms of worshiping God the way he tells us and continue to have a whole host of other freedoms than we should count our selves blessed over most countries in the world.
