(A deep dive into Getting Things Done with a smattering of Everbook)
The third of four sessions delivered to the students contemplating seminary education at Christ Academy on the campus of Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, IN, during the summer of 2019.
Taking a break from dogmatic and exegetical theology, we spend on hour on the “practical,” digging into the often-overlooked first-article//fourth/seventh-commandments “natural” law of time, information and personal self-management. “For if someone does not know how to manage his own household, how will he care for God’s church?” (1 Tim 3:5.)
If you follow me you know I got a lot of email about the LCMS National Youth Gathering this year. I try not to be too parochial here, but it was hard to ignore the questions entirely. So, I was even more pleased when a young lady named Emi reached out to me in order to talk about her experience at the NYG this year. I think you’ll find the conversation surprising on many levels, some good, some less so.
Pastor George Borghardt is pastor of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Bossier City, LA, but you probably know him from his work with Higher Things, an organization dedicated to daring youth to believe in grace alone through faith alone for the sake of Christ alone.
At a recent conference, I had a chance to sit down with him for what was supposed to be a one hour set. Instead, we talked for two hours, covering a gambit of topics from the most controversial hotbeds of distraction to the way the near loss of his daughter seventeen years ago changed his life and set him free.
Yeah. And I think I kind’a like it. Walk with me on the road as we talk about the virtues of both anger and insanity, and learn how to say “bull poopy!”
Safe for work, but you should probably wear headphones or else your cube-mates will think you’ve started drinking Khoolaid. Or, maybe, you’ll start to realize that’s what they’ve been doing all along……
Episode 5 in “The Strong God” series with Pastor Adam Koontz, we get back into Ezekiel specifics; you know, like burning poop and shaving your whole body in public. That kind of stuff. It’s one of my favorite episodes in a long time.
Both of my books in one hour and fifteen minutes. No joke.
This was the first of four hours of presentations given at Christ Academy on the campus of Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, IN, the summer of 2019. The remaining presentations will be released at this site in due time.
