Honestly, there is this weird tension in me right now. I’m sad that I’m saying goodbye to being the main contributor on this blog, but I feel a since of relief. As you can probably tell, I haven’t had the time to devote to this blog as I did when I first started it several months ago. Because of that, I’ve become overly guilty and stressed. I love beer, and I love the friends that I’ve made through this blog.
What’s the best way to ultimately enjoy your beer. The only way you can truly enjoy your beer is if beer isn’t your ultimate joy. What this weeks Beer Tip of the Week for more on this thought.
I’m sitting at the MVD waiting for my number to be called bored out of my mind. So I thought I would pose the question that has been rattling in my mind the past few days. Did Jesus ever get a buzz? I think we would all agree that Jesus drank. It’s hard to be accused as a drunkered if [...]
As for the rich in this present age, charge them not to be haughty, nor to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy. – 1 Timothy 6:17 Paul drops this simple phrase at the end of this verse like a bomb on my feeble mind. Everything that God [...]
We all know the story. Jesus is a huge wedding party. People are eating and drinking and having a great time. But all the sudden the booze start running low. Jesus’ mom pleads with him to help out. Jesus being the man that he is takes over 100 gallons of water and turns it into the best wine these people [...]
I end each Beer Tip of the Week with the verse, “whether you eat or drink, do it all to the glory of God.” But what does that mean…how do we drink to the glory of God? How can someone be a God glorifying beer drinker. I hope that I have given you some insight into this arena here already, [...]
Thanks to Fr. Daniel.Â I came across this hilariously sad story about a christian couple who took over the management of a pub in London.Â The couple, “banned gambling on horse racing, took down the dart board and put up a sign outside the tavern reading “No Swearing.””Â First, it’s not a sin to be a manager or owner of [...]
As I was sitting here enjoying my day off, some quick thoughts came to mind.Â so I thought I would share them with you.Â I have been looking forward to today all week.Â My job at UPS has been CRAZY!Â I was ready for it to be Friday on Tuesday (yeah that bad). We’re going to Shannon’s boss’s house tonight [...]
A few weeks ago, I wrote about how I could care less what a legalist thinks about my drinking habit. In fact I would go to the point of taking a shot in front of one. But I think there are definitely situations where we need to abstain from alcohol. Drink for any amount of time (shot you don’t even [...]
I have to say thanks to Clayton, CJ, and Ross for their help last week while I took some vacation time to spend with Shannon and Asa.Â It was great knowing that I didn’t have to worry about this blog while I was enjoying time with family. If you missed the posts, here is a quick recap. Clayton Bell reminded [...]
Today’s guest post comes from Clayton Bell in Tallahassee Florida. Clayton is the author of Clayton Bell Online where every week he give great cultural and spiritual insights ( an Hot Links of course). Clayton recently left his job at Moore Consulting Group to become the Family Pastor at Every Nation, Tallahassee where he will be overseeing Childrenâ€™s Church, middle [...]
Have you heard about the church in Charlotte NC that fought to keep a Coyote Ugly Saloon from moving in across the street from them? I first read about it in an article from the Charlotte Observer last week (no I’m not subscribed to the Charlotte Observer…I just have a Google Alert set up to send me anything with the [...]
Just read the following article that I got from this web site. MINOT, N.D. â€” Jack Crocker, a beer-loving machinist and “part-time Christian,” finally agreed to read Proverbs with wife Reanna. He’s glad he did. “I’m a Proverbs 31 husband all right,” says Jack, then quotes Proverbs 31:6-7: “Give beer to those who are perishing, wine to those who are [...]
Let’s get it clear from the start.Â Christians can drink alcohol.Â There are boundaries (be of legal age, don’t get drunk, and don’t get someone else drunk), but ultimately we are free to drink.Â Alcohol was given to us by God to enjoy, but I think more importantly to spread the gospel. There are those out there that will say [...]
