Step off the Edge, Feel Your Lungs!

Since I don’t post on the weekends… I am reposting this. This guy is an amazing voice in Christiandom. And, he is a personal friend. I met him while studying in seminary. I know a great deal of intelligent people… he ranks high on that list.

God and Stuff

All churches and denominations have their own brand of bullshit. I’ve been part of the Non-Denominational denomination for my entire life, so let’s focus on that one.

Our church is, technically, Non-Denominational, but is less conservative than most other churches who have applied this particular label to their definition. “Less conservative” might not accurately describe us.  We’re about two notches below snake-handling.

This is a challenging place to be. We are a small church because it’s not a church you can attend to just sit and enjoy. It’s usually far to intense for that. That being said, there is a certain reality of the Presence of God that exists. The thing I love about the church is that we, every week, go after that Presence. We don’t fuck around with a lot of filler or worry about time constraints. I’m not sure I could go back to a church that…

TOTD – Does Your Vote Count? Yes, Yes It Does!

*Disclaimer: I find a great deal of things to be funny, and my sense of humor, I think, covers a broad spectrum. And in that spectrum there lies the sophomoric and the low-brow. I’m sorry, but there are a lot of immature things that make me laugh. So, having said that… I hope this post doesn’t offend anyone. 

I also need your opinion. You cast the vote. Whatever name gets the most votes by the end of the weekend (Sunday night 11:59 p.m., Central Time) will be declared the winner and forever be attached to my life!

Also, I am not responsible if you are offended by the carefully chosen words and/or my mockery of some people. If you are truly offended, I apologize… however, I will add that not only am I sorry that I offended you, but that you also need to not take yourself so seriously and that you should probably smile more. Thank you… come back again! 🙂

Thought of the Day – Does Your Vote Count? Yes, Yes It Does!

by Senator Brett

As many of you know, I am close to my niece, Tessa. Due to some cooking commitments that I made for my sister’s church picnic I spent last weekend with her and her family, and therefor got a lot of quality time with my niece. After a great weekend it came time for me to leave on Sunday night. My niece goes into her room and comes back and hands me a stuffed creation.

Now, don’t get me wrong… Continue reading

TOTD – How To Truly Whiten Your Teeth!

Thought of the Day – How To Truly Whiten Your Teeth

by Senator Brett

I wanted to whiten my teeth today, but the truth is that I am terrified of sharp pointy things directed inside, or even near, my mouth and/or face. So instead of  making an appointment with a dentist I went out and bought my teeth some sweater vests, a Michael Buble cd, then I enrolled them at Alice Lloyd College, went to a Josh Groban concert and took them to a NASCAR event.

TOTD – Give me a “C”… It’s For “Church!”

Okay, so this is an old TOTD…. from a long time ago, as you are probably able to deduce by the sports references I make. I am posting it on here because A) this blog is new so this TOTD is new to you, and B) I have been busy this morning therefore I do not have time to think of new thoughts. I can barely keep up with my old ones!

Thought of the Day – Give me a “C”… It’s For “Church!”

by Senator Brett

If God meant for us to all go to church every week… then why did He put football on Sundays? And if God intended for us to all get married, settle down, and stay faithful to one person for the rest of our lives… Continue reading

TOTD – All The Hot Cakes You Want!

Thought of the Day – All The Hot Cakes You Want!

by Senator Brett

As the majority of us know, the Bible is the best selling book of all time. Hands down. No other book comes close. So, I wonder… why do we have the term, “It’s selling like hotcakes?” Why don’t we just say, “It’s Continue reading

TOTD – My Coffee Habit is Saving The Earth

Thought of the Day – My Coffee Habit is Saving the Earth!

by Senator Brett

Yesterday was Earth Day. And for those of you that know me… you know that I am somewhat wishy-washy when it comes to things like the environment. I believe there is a lot more the human race should be doing to preserve our planet for future generations, but I also drink a lot of bottled water and only recycle when it is easily available. I believe that the oil companies don’t do nearly enough to make up for the devastation they cause in certain parts of the world and their overall impact on our planet; however, if they were to offer me a job making great money, I’d gladly accept. So, like I said… Continue reading

TOTD – It’s Not What You Say… Okay, It’s What You Say!

Thought of the Day – It’s Not What You Say… Okay, It’s What You Say!

by Senator Brett

So, anyway… I was listening to that OMD song “If You Leave” and it got to the part in the song where he sings, “I touch you once, I touch you twice, I won’t let go at any price…” and it made me mad as hell because that song was such a hit in the 80’s… and that’s really not fair at all! Why… just a few years ago I wrote a song a lot like that, and it tanked. My lyrics were, Continue reading

Do You Believe in Angels?

For those of you that don’t know, I am putting together a book of essays and commentaries that I have written, spanning over what appears to be the majority of my life. Not that I feel that I have anything unique or novel to say, but rather because it’s just a goal of mine that I intend to see through to the final end. So, for your reading enjoyment (or lack thereof)… here is the very first essay that I ever wrote, not counting high school papers. I was nineteen-years-old when I wrote this idea out. And, for those of you that know me best, you know that I rarely proof or edit anything… so there’s a good chance that this is pretty much exactly what came out. I’m actually re-reading it today for the first time in years.

To put it into perspective… the person who is the main focal point of this essay is now married and has a new child of her own.

Do You Believe in Angels?

by Senator Brett

When people ask me if I believe in angels I always answer with a definite “Yes.” when people ask me if I believe in a place called Heaven it is the same response. And, most of the time, those questions are generally followed by yet another question. The eternal question of “Why?” And, the answer I give to that question is not nearly as complex as you might think. Continue reading

TOTD – Made in My Head!

Thought of the Day – Made in My Head!

by Senator Brett

I think it would be funny if when people in China buy toys and little nicknacks, when they get home and turn over their purchase… there would be a little sticker on the bottom that says, “Probably made by you” or “Made next door” or “You didn’t take this home from the factory, did you?!”

Anyway, have a good one, folks.

Your Friendly Senator

P.S. This isn’t meant to be racist… I got the idea from turning over about five things that I own and seeing the sticker, “Made in China” on all of them.

TOTD – Crystal Light… All New Flavor!

Thought of the Day – Crystal Light… All New Flavor

by Senator Brett

I am thinking of inventing a new strain of crystal meth. I’m gonna call it Crystal Light. That way, when people try to give you a hard time for doing it you can always say, “Oh, it’s okay. This is Crystal Light. It has WAY less calories than original crystal meth, but still that same great taste!” And people could say things like, “I’m just gonna have to go with the Crystal Light. Summer’s coming and I want to maintain my healthy weight of 75 pounds!”

On a side note… is it just me, or does anyone else think it’d be a great business plan to be a crystal meth dealer AND someone who makes and manufactures false teeth? It’s simple Supply & Demand at its best.

Have a good day, folks!

Your Friendly Senator
