Do You is an interesting combination of insights, humor, reflection and insight.
Russell Simmons (the godfather of hip-hop) parlays his 20+ years of experience in the music and fashion industries into a handbook of success.

Even though there are numerous references to yoga and Buddhism, I found his spiritual convictions to be both inspiring and a little unsettling. It would be interesting to see how a Christian would act with the status and influence that Mr. Simmons has.

Overall I thought it was a good read. Some of the chapters could have been condensed but most of the information was thought-provoking and enlightening.

let’s go

Posted by dturn on June 29, 2007

Lately it seems like I’ve been searching for answers to some burning questions.

Fortunately for me, I’ve been getting answers that are a blessing to me.

I want to make an IMPACT on my community and this world.
I want to be known for making Jesus known.

I am on my way.

Too many people overvalue what they are not and undervalue what they are.

fathers day

Posted by dturn on June 18, 2007

I had a great weekend celebrating my birthday Saturday (41!!) and Fathers Day yesterday.

My wish yesterday was to go to Johnny Rockets with my sons and my wife.

We went and it was awesome!!

Nothing like a good burger and a great family to make me feel special.

Why does it seem difficult for the church to show and share the love of God?

We don’t have a problem preaching at people.
We don’t mind being judgmental.
We love to sing and dance in our buildings.
We like to dress up on a given day of the week.
We’re experts at biblical gymnastics.

When was the last time someone outside the church experienced the life-changing love of God?
When was the last time you got outside your church?

I don’t mean witnessing on some street corner.
I mean sharing Love.
Water to those who are thirsty.
Food to those who are hungry.
Friendship to the lonely.
Hope to the hopeless.

I once heard somewhere that Love is a verb.
It propels us to action.

Make plans to share the Love of God today.

peace

irreplacable??

Tony Morgan has a great post about a woman who had her position at her job replaced by a vending machine.

I wonder if that is how most people are living.
Are we really living or are we easily replaced by some inanimate object?
