2020-02-26 to 28 Pictures: Charleston, South Carolina

One of the few upsides of having to cancel our Spring Break trip last March at the onset of the pandemic is that we are "stuck" with a rather large voucher from one of those discount airlines. Last autumn, Tricia and I spent a weekend in Savannah, Georgia and had a...

2020-02-13 Pictures: Lyndsey’s 18th Birthday

I am little behind on posting photos. These are some of my favorites from a couple of weekends ago when we got a chance to celebrate Lyndsey's 18th birthday. It's hard to believe that my little girl is officially an adult. It was nice to have the family all back...


Introduction I love working with kids, and I love teaching them hard concepts in ways they can understand. To that end, for years I have been working on a dictionary of theological terms for kids and teens. In sharing those definitions, there seemed no better place to...

If You Want It Done Right

In all likelihood, you know how the phrase ends: If you want it done right, DO IT YOURSELF! This is a bit of a mantra for me, and frankly, something that I struggle with daily both in leadership and in my Christian walk.  In theory, this is easy to accept. ...

What Does God Hate?

This is the little and humble post that started it all. I happened to be reading through my Bible, and this passage impacted me so much that I posted a little blurb about it on Facebook. That was July 28, 2008, and I've been writing and sharing ever since. (Maybe...

I Think I Am Going to Throw Up

With a catchy title and a catchy tune, this one is sure to be popular with kids. When else do you get to sing “I think I’m going to throw up” and “I think I’m gonna hurl” at church?

    I actually love this! My wife does not share my sentiments.

      I agree with your wife. It is too far out there. Most people would find it offensive.

  2. Lin Pearson

    I'm with Jared's wife, I'm afraid.
    I prefer songs that lead the kids' thoughts into more profitable areas. I can just see them posturing like they are going to puke! In my opinon it doesn't really relate to true worship.

    I think it's kind of catchy, and I think kids would like it (particularly boys). It does lack any sort of deep theological sentiment though :). I'm not sure I would I classify it as worship, but I guess if it is done "as unto the Lord" then that qualifies. I do think it's clever.though. Plus, if it gets the boys moving and doing motions, who knows if that may lead to more fruitful worship when you follow this one with a bit deeper song.

    We sing this in Childrens church all the time, the kids LOVE it. Some adults might be offended but than again Childrens Ministry is not for sissys 🙂 If you cant get down to their level and have silly fun with them they will never relate to you and you wont be able to reach them. And we absolutely do throwing up motions LOL and we laugh like crazy then when it says "to the Lord" we raise our hands and praise Jesus. So much fun 🙂
