bill gates’ last day

This is a hilarious video of Bill Gates shown at the CES as part of his final keynote speech this past week.  I know that it’s easy to make fun of him because of the haircut, the nerdiness, the sweater, the Microsoft empire, etc. but the more I reflect on his legacy and particularly, his philantrophy and foundation, I’m amazed.  I know many younger folks are drawn to Steve Jobs of Apple, but there’s something very appealing about Bill that grows on me.

Check out the video. He’s got some notable friends…with funny cameos by Spielberg, Bono, Jay-Z, Barack Obama, and many more.

    i do admire what Bill has done for his creation of microsoft as well as what he is doing on the side to help the needy. BUT as you have seen on my previous comments on different topics, i just have to comment on everything…and at times interpreted as abrasive. for those who might be affended, i do apologize in advance. there are more that deserves out admoration as well as appreciating their presence in this world.

    a year ago, i have received an email from my coworker. he forwarded me a local newspaper article and the reason my partner in crime “Todd” will be out for 2 weeks from project management. The article was that of “Todd’s” brother in-law who was a camptain for US special forces. He was based in IRAQ and was hit with IMD while riding in his humvee. He initially survived approx. 2 mins after the hit. He took out a picture of his family before he died, and told another surviving soldier and said “Please, tell my wife and kids i love them, i will always be with them and will be looking down from above” Those were the last words.

    It is great to marvel on those who made fortune and giving away fortunes. however, should we idolize them as many do. There are those that are dying so that you and I can sleep safely tonight. Please support out soldier and pray for them, as they are doing you a favor by dying in Christian-hating country in hopes that we all can be safe.

    I may not be a Bill Gates fan, but that video was brilliant! If a guy like that is going to display his sense of humour, more power to him. I’m also not a Hillary fan, Obama fan, Al Gore fan, Jay Z fan, etc. but it all just added to the hilarity of it. You seem to have a knack at finding the best videos and sharing them here…the Rick Astley music video a few months back was awesome! Nice to find a pastor’s blog that has some comic relief now and then. 🙂 Keep it up!

    Great entertaining fun video…where and who produced it???

    Maybe because of his family ties to Hollywood he will now become a film star..maybe not!

    I belong to the Cult of Mac. Even so, many in the mac community love and respect Bill Gates. The success of Microsoft, his ongoing philanthropy, his iconic contributions to the tech world and of course his history with Steve Jobs…it’s like the relationship between Magneto and Prof Xavier!

    Here is a historical moment from geek heaven: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M3tUkyCRp0A&feature=related

One Day’s Wages

My Instagram

Window seat. For the win. As leaders, we must not see ministry and family as competing commitments.  We must not sacrifice our marriage and kids for the sake of "ministry." How can we? Loving our families IS ministry & good leadership.

And on a side note, we took this goofy photo for Mother's Day last Sunday at @seattlequest. I was shocked! What in the world happened to our kids? Our 13 year old son blocked four of my shots on the basketball court yesterday. He's since been grounded... I fear that we ask God to move mountains, forgetting that God also wants to move us.

In fact, it's possible that we are that mountain. Time flies. The eldest is wrapping up her 1st year in college and the college tours have begun for the 2nd child. The youngest enters high school in the Fall. Can't say enough about how proud Minhee and I are of the kids - not just of their accomplishments but the people they are and are becoming.

But...man...we can't wait to party it up when we're emptynesters. Party at our house. It's going to be epic. Humbled. Grateful. Mindful of God's grace and faithfulness in my life. It's all grace... It's an unexpected honor to be invited back - even with some mini-drama - to @princetonseminary to receive the 2017 Distinguished Alumni Award - exactly 25 years after starting my journey there as a student in 1992. Wow.

Princeton isn't necessarily for everyone. And to say that I loved everything about my experience would be misleading but it was very formative. Ir challenged me to examine why I believed in what I believed. It reminded me that God could handle my questions. It prepared me for a post-Christian context where I am not entitled to be heard but I had to earn the right to be heard, and of course, it taught me that all is good with a Philly cheese steak at Hoagie Haven.

No one is an island to themselves and I am certainly an example of that. Many people - women and men, young and old, and of many backgrounds - prayed, encouraged, mentored, and loved me along the way. Grateful for my professors at seminary, my many classmates, and the numerous fellow staff and co-laborers I've had the privilege of serving Christ with past and present. And of course, I'm forever inspired by my parents, my children, and my wife, Minhee. Thank you for your faith, hope, and love...and oh, for your patience. Only your family will know and see both the best and worst of you. They've seen my worst...and keep on believing in me.

Thank you again, PTS and President Barnes, for this honor. Then, today, and tomorrow...by God's grace, just striving to be faithful to my Lord and Savior...to preach and live out the convictions of the whole Gospel. Amen. So humbled and grateful to be with @catalystleader in Cincinnati to encourage leaders from all around the country about the invitation to Uncommon Fellowship.

Preached from John 4. We can talk, preach, sing, philsophize, liturgize, and spit rhymes about Samaria...but we still have to talk through Samaria.
