Know this song??

It’s from the movie the Pirates of the Caribbean: a pretty popular film that I also enjoy.  The song you just heard (if you clicked the play button) is called “Hoist the Colours”.  The title is a pretty simple phrase and a command that basically means: “raise the flag” or “raise our banner”.

These words are used in the movie, but more significantly these are words that have been used all throughout history. Continue reading

Here’s the results for 2014!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,900 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 32 trips to carry that many people.

When I think about the crucifixion, I normally react in a couple ways.  First, it normally makes me sad that Jesus died.  And not just that he died, but how he died just blows my mind.  If you’ve ever taken a good look in the Bible or seen the movie “The Passion of the Christ” you know what I’m talking about.  His death was brutal!  He was tortured.  And sometimes it just brings me to tears.

And other times, maybe even at the same time, I just get angry.  I think about that Jesus didn’t do anything wrong.  He didn’t deserve to die.  He never sinned, yet people hated him… and murdered my Savior.  That makes me mad! Continue reading
