If I redid the video tomorrow, I’d keep the overall message, but would articulate, elaborate, and expand on the parts where my words and delivery were chosen poorly… My prayer is my generation would represent Christ faithfully and not swing to the other spectrum….thankful for your words and more importantly thankful for your tone and fatherly like grace on me as my elder. Humbled. Blessed. Thankful for painful growth. Blessings. Continue reading.

FYI, if you haven't picked up Fr. Pontifex's recently released album, "Ordained," DO IT NOW. Here's an interview I did with him about it: http://www.integratedcatholiclife.org/2011/10/perceptions-an-interview-with-priest-and-rapper-fr-pontifex/

This is an awesome video...definitely the best one I've seen. :) Thanks for sharing.

Just thought you might be interested in reading this conversation between Jeff Bethke and a Gospel Coalition writer...it's really beautiful and humbling. http://thegospelcoalition.org/blogs/kevindeyoung/2012/01/14/following-up-on-the-jesusreligion-video/

"You can not have Christ without the Church. You can not have the King without His Kingdom."
That is my quote of the day.

"Those who sit in the pews and refuse the good news..."
Now that's my rap song of the day :p
