Thursday Randomness

Haven’t had much time to blog since the give-away.  Lots of stuff in Evernote that I want to blog about, as well as random stuff bouncing around in my head.  Here’s a peak (in bullet points):

  • Listening to Caffeinated Faith podcasts this week. Incredibly sincere in their faith. Funny. Raw. Juvenile. Get over it. Listen.
  • Might sponsor a child through Compassion International.  Given before, never committed.  Talking with the kids tonight.
  • Currently reading three books (not counting the bible), have three more I haven’t started yet, and a list of about 30 to buy.  It is frustrating .
  • Support Kevin‘s book “Addition by Adoption” by clicking here for a twibbon.  Quick read, inspiring & proceeds provide clean water in Ethiopia.  Buy it here.
  • Disappointed with Tuesday’s Lost episode.  After the shock of the opening scene, it was too predictable and ended lame.
  • Thanks to Shawn, I dreamed about crashing into a wall on a light cycle last night.
  • Have been inspired to write haiku today, thanks to Brett. – – by the way, Brett the word “haiku” is both singular and plural.
  • Think (hope) Fringe will be good tonight.
  • I like crating links in my blogs.

The Gospel According to Lost

The Gospel According to Lost by Chris Seay

Lost is NOT just a television show. It has become larger than that—a massive story filled with mystery that has garnered over twenty million participants. Some might call them viewers, but one does not just watch Lost, one participates in it.

Ok, I admit it.  I am a BIG fan of Lost.  It is one of the few dramatic series shows I watch with any type of regularity.  So, when I heard about this book by Chris Seay, I knew I wanted to read it.

I found it to be a very easy, enjoyable read.  Drawing parallels between the story and characters of Lost, and real life, Chris brings out some very fresh insights on faith, community & our own tendency to find ourselves feeling “Lost” from time to time.

If you have not watched any of the Lost series over the past several years, you may have a difficult time following some of the examples in this book.  However, I would recommend it to anyone even slightly intrigued by the show.
