My Brother

Is there a church out there for my brother?
He is skeptical of everything from the existence of God to the reliability of the Bible.
He doesn't necessarily need answers; he needs people who are willing to ask questions.
He works with his hands; he needs to see the church practically meeting needs.
He needs relationships with other guys like him- guys who go snowboarding, play paint ball, enjoy concerts, and love the outdoors.
He doesn't need pressure to look or act a certain way.
He needs the freedom to ask questions where no one gives pat answers or gets defensive.
He needs to see with his own eyes why spirituality matters.
He needs opportunity to serve others.
He is 26 years old, lives with his girlfriend and has the kindest, most selfless spirit of anyone you'll meet.
He drinks occasionally.
He used to smoke.
He drives fast and really likes his car.
He likes Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne, and The Hip.
He looks after our mom.
He worries about money and having enough of it.
He loves animals.
He can fix almost anything.
He respects the planet and recycles.
He owns his own kayak.
He already has lots of good friends.
Is there a church for him?

hmm... i don't suppose he happens to live in or near richmond, va! i would like to think that our church is that church... he sounds too much like us for it not to be :)

Canada?!! Dang! No, can't say that I know of anyone OR that I want to move there... but then again, God has sent me to every place that I've said I didn't want to live, so one never knows! :)

As for the cake, yeah... I used the Pampered Chef bowl. I thought I had covered all of my bases with getting advice from several different people, but I apparently chose the wrong one to listen to! Oh well... she still loved what we ended up with!


Simile Metaphor Collection

Elijah on urination: Pee is like horses galloping out of the gate. Once they get started you just can't stop them.
Elijah: If school were a human I'd give it a wedgie.
Elijah: I am like a hot rod and I just want to be a plain old Ford
Elijah on the fruits of the spirit: I've got them all covered except self-control. Its like a tiny green tomato and the rest are all big ripe ones. Especially love. Its like the biggest tomato we saw in the garden tonight.
