biscuits of grace

this morning before we headed down town to have our weekly breakfast with our homeless brothas and sistas we hooked up for prayer. well, while i was praying i had a thought ...."what if one of these guys that i may talk to today is right on the edge and ledge just waiting, hoping, and praying that something could change....that something could break? what if just one conversation, one handshake, or even one smile could be the very thing that pushes them right over the edge and ledge right into the depths of God's grace? what if todays their day of salvation?

so as cheezy as it may sound i began to pray that these biscuits today would be more than biscuits. that they would be God's grace extended toward them. you never know....they may be one biscuit away from experiencing the life God intends from them. might sound crazy but ask "Thadeus"(a guy from this morning) about those bisquits....he went over the edge today....he gave his life to JESUS. mmmmmmm biscuits of grace with a side of SALVATION. yeahya

if you "do life" here at HPC then you prolly noticed the massive structure that is erupting from the ground (also known as the HPC ARENA which is the new worship space we're building. well, just in case your wondering WHY we are building this massive building i thought i would remind you with a picture i took this past weekend of a purple chair being reserved "g-town" style with a coat hanger.WOW! seats are scarce at HPC and thats why we are building because we need more seats because every chair=a person and every person matters to God. at hpc we just wanna reach more people and if we have to build 50 more buildings then we'll do it because "they" are worth it and HE is worthy. until then...bring your coat hangers cuz you might lose yo seat.

o new address is So, change my link on your roll sucka!

Jesus wrecked my life

i love it when people share their
story of how their life was a complete wreck and then God saved them
and made their life all better. BUT, lately i think i've really kinna
been captivated by those people who tell their story about how they
came from a nice, conservative family, went to a nice private school,
then went off to a nice little college and finished with a nice little
degree with a very nice-promising future. you know, those pep's that
just have it all together AND THEN GOD.....wrecked everything. i love it! abandon all the nice stuff to live this radically different life from the culture we live in. God all thru the scriptures wrecked pep's lives and not one person ever regretted it. WOW! my prayer is that when my life looks nice that God would completely wreck it. YEAHYA

danger at the deli

so today i was grabbin a lil lunch with a buddy of mine at Jason's deli when suddenly i almost got beat down by this dude wearing a pair of cajun reeboks=white shrimpin boots and rockin a sweet mullet. well, to make a long story short...all of you bloggers know how it is, everywhere you go you are constantly coming across something cool and your 1st thought is "l've gotta take a pix andblog that' right? well today it almost got me killed cuz i was following this guy all thru J-deli and i couldnt get a shot off with my phone-cam. 1st i followed him to the salad bar but twice i missed the kill shot then finally at the fontain drink machine he busted me. so i did what any hardcore blogger would do...i sat right behind him and this was the best shot i could get. i took about 50plus snaps but this dude was all over the place. GOD BLESS THE MULLETS1

sharing life

just a little update on my good friend marc who was once homeless. he now has an apartment, a bike and above is a pix of him filling out a job application. funny thing is that he put me down as a reference with my cell numbered and since he doesn't have a phone he also put my cell number down as his contact number. so the boss at this place called me as a reference and then 2minutes later called me thinking i was marc telling me i got the job. SWEET huh? keep marc in your prayers. i got it wrong for so long thinking that the gospel was just me sharing my message...i definitely haven't arrived but God is steady teaching me that the gospel(good news) isn't me just sharing my message but its sharing my very life with those that need a tangible gospel. i love how the apostle Paul candidly put it.....

"We loved you so much that we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well, because you had become so dear to us." -1 Thessalonians 2:8
