“you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone”

But when the video ended.. i was pretty sure that I not only knew what was gone, but was pretty stoked that it was..

Yeah, that wasn’t a publicity stunt at all. Every single one of those star-struck tweenage girls was there for Jesus. Every. Single. One.

Also, good to know wee Sir Jonas has that worship-leader-speaking-with-an-artificially-emotional-voice-in-a-rhythmic-cadence-over-the-impromptu-musical-bridge thing down. And the khakis on Easter Sunday. Very important. Job security after the boyish good looks fade?

“no further comment from me”. Hmmm. I wasn’t quick enough to see the post that caused you to say these words! Darn it anyway! I’m more attracted to smaller (much smaller) crowds. Because that is what this is; a crowd. Not a congregation. Not the Body of Christ. At least IMO.

Now that’s funny (and painful). Come to find out – you were right a month ago. Jesus unfortunately had NOTHING to do with that little performance. “Just make a decision that illness won’t slow you down, and you’re good to go.” Wow. Again, good call MPT.

who makes these decisions? who chooses to prioritize in this way? i want to think highly of the leaders that organize a service such as this and i want to believe that there’s a “back story” i’m missing. i really want to find that i’m making assumptions and jumping to conclusions. because…if i am, than i can confess my shit and get myself straightened out. but still my heart aches.

simple. Jesus….in the middle of all of this still loves and cares and has compassion and asks us to forgive and pray and love. it’s just so hard sometimes. ~sT

      God is quite used to my shit….you can trust me on that one. that’s not the miracle….the miracle is He keeps finding ways to love me and occasionally even provoke me behave like Jesus. there’s one things worse than making messes that look like shit…it’s pretending we don’t.

      now…with all that said….if you were just yankin’ my chain….i’m really going to feel stupid like a pile of shit ;-) ~sT

“Make the commitment” – to what? To whom? Can it be more unspecific?

I was wondering if they were going to play their own songs or sing some Hillsong United.
I am even more confused now as to what the point of this all was.
I can just imagine sitting in the crowd already upset that we were having easter service at a baseball stadium and then having to listen to the jonas brothers sing, that probably would have pushed me over the edge.

    hey kyle….i hope your “edge” isn’t really that fragile. it may be hard to believe this, but i’m convinced Jesus was still there in that crowd — in the eyes of young girl who’s hurt because her folks are breaking up as she makes a new friend with the older lady who lives in the apartment above her….in the hands of young gay kid who helped lift his mom who’s dying of cancer out of the wheel chair and into her seat….these events are just vehicles. Jesus…amazingly enough, still manages to ebb and flow into the lives and hearts of all of us, if we’re just willing to live and love even when leaders and organizers of these silly things give us plenty of reasons not to. ~sT

      Are you saying that Jesus needs vehicles like the Jonas Bros in order to change peoples’ lives?

        posted April 6, 2010 at 10:26 am

        nope. “need”? definitely not. uses? you bet. it’s pretty incredible how He’s able to step in and make amazing things happen even as we do our best to make messes of everything. if you knew my life, you’d understand what i’m talking about. i’ve done a lot of crappy things that have made a mockery of the Jesus in me — and somehow, some way….He’s managed to use this “vehicle” of me in spite of myself. that’s all….there’s no question that seeing things like this hurts and even get me pissed off. but if I don’t love….I simply become a “noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.” does that help explain a bit better? i hope so. ~sT

I just watched the fundamental girls singing and then this back to back. I hate them both and they are at opposite ends of the spectrum.

That isn’t singing; it is more like musical whining. I could only make out every other word.
