Need More Jiggawatts!

mad scientistI’ve had so many ideas come and go, and I’ve tried everything from journals, emails, to-do lists, etc. to keep track of them. So I am going to start a blog category called “brainstorm” and use ye old blog to post these ideas – mainly for ministry. I think this will be good because then I might get some good feedback from the blog world. So feel free to comment away every time this category come up, and steal away too, just let me know if you do – I’d love to know.

This idea actually comes right from my brother, way out in Virginia:

I’m not sure why this popped into my head but I have this series idea. It basically comes from the concept that sometimes in order to move forward you have to look back and deal with stuff from the past first and learn from it. Personally I think we all go through those times. Also, biblically we can learn a lot from the OT and also the way the church was established in the NT.
The Israelites being delivered from Egypt and then forgetting what God had done for them and wandering for 40 years is a perfect example of a people that refused to look back.
Anyway, I think if it was a series then it should be called Back to the Future. What do you think?

What do I think? I think that’s a great idea! Awesome way to introduce what some people really consider scary and boring: the Old Testament (oh yeah, there’s actually 39 other books in the Bible). I can see the graphics already, and if you wanted to you could do some great stage props, Universal Studios style.

    Hey man, thanks for your reply on Erin’s blog. I amtotally new on this stuff. Anyway, I think the Bck to the Future thing is cool. You could probably run quite a few lessons from it. I think there are always things in our past that we need to visit and deal with before we can really move on in the future. Also it is always reassuring to know that God is always in our future, and the present. -I guess He could be the flux capacitor- that really takes us where we want to go, as long as we include Him.

    Maybe that was a stretch with the fluc capacitor thing but whatever right, gotta try?

    Like the site – Brandon
