_to write darkness

A man can no more diminish God’s glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, ‘darkness’ on the walls of his cell. _c.s. lewis

What does your billboard say?

Posted by abramjanson on October 29, 2009

89The theme for Club and Student Leaders for this week was this question: What does your billboard say?

A billboard is simply a form of advertisement.  It projects a message to those who read it.  It conveys an idea… it persuades… and it raises awareness… its a powerful form of advertisement.

The way we act, speak, respond, how we dress, the way we treat others, spend our money and time… all convey a message of who we are.  These aspects begin to define our existence.


So the question I pose to you and myself is this: Is the message we are advertising an accurate representation of 1.) who we want to be and 2.) Christ and his Kingdom?

my name is abe. i’ve had a safe and secure life. on a journey of discovering who i serve.  i believe there’s purpose in life. i love thunderstorms, bon fires, and ice cream. i’m cynical and apathetic. i care too much about what people think of me and too little about what matters. i love my family. i have been blessed with great friends. i feel like i take more in relationships then i give.  i love rafting. i have a severe weakness for looking up cheap plane tickets online. i am prideful. i am blessed.

Don’t worry, I forgot too.

Posted by abramjanson on October 21, 2009

I know you forgot I had a blog… no worries though.  I forgot too.
Actually… I don’t think I really forgot… I just simply consciously decided I had nothing good to write… at least nothing worth reading… and therefore nothing worth writing for it wouldn’t be read.  (I’m in philosophy class right now… hence why i sound so philosophical… and by philosophical I mean everything sounds the same and is redundant but somehow possess more than 4 different meanings…)

Anyways… I’m going to attempt to get back on this horse.

I have a lot of thoughts… many of which I don’t write down and therefore I feel 1.) I either forget or 2.) I don’t fully engage them.

Both are true.

The summer ended well. Loved it. Loved it. Loved it.

The semester has been full of school, soccer, and campus life… All of which have been great. Like anything… There are good and great days… and not so good.

Anyways… thats all for now.  Cheers to pursuit of writing down my thoughts.
