blog fantasy football league

Dear blog visitors, friends, subscribers and Sports fan from around the world,

This blog isn’t meant to always be serious.  It’s good to have fun together and talk trash.  I’ve set up a fantasy football league [Salary Cap format] via Yahoo Sports.  The league is called Blog Football.  Group ID# is 6455 and the password is: blog.  If you want to join in on the fun, register here.  Anyone is welcome to join.

Here are the basic rules: 

Each week, you’ll decide which players to start, while keeping your team under a league-wide $100 million salary cap. The better your players perform in real-life games, the more points they score for your fantasy team.  So, everybody draws players each week from the general pool of players.  You can swap your players as less or often as you want.

Several months ago, I also set up a Men’s NCAA Tournament league which was won by a gal at Quest.  Incredibly, she placed 118th place in the entire Yahoo system. 

P.S.  If you are part of Quest Church, there’s also a head to head league that’s set up and we’re looking for a few more players.

    Can’t say no to a game that combines football and economics

  4. Are you setting up another league this year?

In our culture, we can be so obsessed with the "spectacular" or "glamorous." The Church often engagws in thia language and paradigm...but what if God has called many of us to small, ordinary things?

Will we still be faithful?
Will we still go about such things with great love and joy?

I recently came across this picture taken by @mattylew, one of our church staff...and I started tearing up: This is my mother; in her 70s; with realities of some disabilities that make it difficult for her to stand up and sit down...but here she is on her knees and prostate in prayer. She doesn't have any social media accounts, barely knows how to use her smartphone, doesn't have a platform, hasn't written a book, doesn't have any titles in our church, isn't listed as a leader or an expert or a consultant or a guru. But she simply seeks to do her best - by God's grace - to be faithful to God. She prays for hours every day inteceding for our family, our church, and the larger world.

Even if we're not noticed or celebrated or elevated...let's be faithful. Our greatest calling as followers of Christ is to be faithful. Not spectacular. Not glamorous. Not popular. Not relevant. And not even successful in the eyes of the world.

Be faithful. Amen. #notetoself (and maybe helpful for someone else)

At times, we have to say ‘NO’ to good things to say ‘YES’ to the most important things.

We can't do it all.
Pray and choose wisely.
Then invest deeply. May our compassion not just be limited to the West or to those that look like us. Lifting up the people of Iraq, Iran, and Kurdistan in prayer after the 7.3 earthquake - including the many new friends I met on a recent trip to Iraq.

The death toll rises to over 400 and over 7,000 injured in multiple cities and hundreds of villages along the Western border with Iraq.

Lord, in your mercy... We are reminded again and again...that we are Resurrection People living in a Dark Friday world.

It's been a tough, emotional, and painful week - especially as we lament the horrible tragedy of the church shootings at Sutherland Springs. In the midst of this lament, I've been carried by the hope, beauty, and promise of our baptisms last Sunday and the raw and honest testimonies of God's mercy, love, and grace.

Indeed, God is not yet done. May we take heart for Christ has overcome the world. "Without genuine relationships with the poor, we rob them of their dignity and they become mere projects. And God did not intend for anyone to become our projects." Grateful this quote from my book, Overrated, is resonating with so many folks - individuals and  NGOs. / design by @preemptivelove .
May we keep working 
on ourselves 
even as we seek 
to change the world. 
To be about the latter 
without the former 
is the great temptation 
of our times.
