Sunday provides us a day to relax, reflect, and refuel. On Sunday’s I like to sit back and ask a couple of questions. Maybe it sounds a little like those awkward games you play with people you do not know so that you can get to know each other better.
Lets just call it Question(s) for You.

You can answer them all or just one

1) I have to ask, what are you doing for Halloween? (if you need some alternatives, check out this post)

2) Did you watch the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear yesterday? If so, what were your thoughts? If not, be ready for a post coming soon on it all.

3) What was your favorite tweet of the week?

Answer them all or just one….these are questions for you.


It is amazing what some people can do.

In this five minute clip of awesomeoness, you have people doing things that you probably never imagined possible.

Check this out:

Seeing the church as stuffy, out of date, and out of touch seems to be a common understanding amongst most, but seeing the church as a place where you cannot speak freely is felt by most but never made known.

In a place that stands under the umbrella of grace and freedom the church has taken on the role of condemner rather then confessor.

Having permission to speak freely in church is about as safe as driving with your eyes close, you will cause an accident one way or the other and someone will get hurt, usually it is you.

But what if the church became a place of openness and healing? What if the church was known for the conversations that took place rather then the condemnation? Anne Jackson decides to put that hope out there in her newest book “Permission to Speak Freely”.

Providing a first hand experience of one sinners struggle to find redemption and healing, Jackson takes you on a journey from a small church in the backroads of Texas to a place of healing in Kansas City. Anne Jackson calls the church to be a place of giving the gift of going second.

Every morning you wake up you start to engage in something. Whether that be a conversation with a family member, the radio, a television show, or a social media outlet or possible God, as soon as your eyes open you start to engage.

Engagement in social media is one of the more important things for brands and businesses, but also for regular web 2.0 users. But have you ever wondered if you were missing out on a channel of engagement? That there is an untapped market out there that is ripe for the picking?

Check out this video below from Brian Solis author of the best selling book Engage! and why he thinks engaging with customers or followers is the most important thing.

I think the use of geolocation tagging is an check-ins will be a huge part of business. Unfortunately most businesses are missing out on the opportunity to engage their customers.

Isn’t that a legit costume.
I think I might be sporting that costume this year.

Halloween is only a couple of days away and I am torn as how to celebrate. The confliction comes in regards to wanting a lot of candy but being 24 years old. And not to mention the whole devils holiday thing.

As a kid I can only remember trick or treating once, and it only lasted for about 3 minutes and 5 neighbor houses. Most of my time was spent at church on October 31st walking around getting candy and playing games. One year I was a football player and I remember specifically trying to bobb for apples and not being able to get my head fully submerged because my shoulder pads were holding me back…those were the days.

As this day is fast approaching, I thought I would give you three halloween alternatives that could fill your time.

Watch this and be amazed

I am always so curious as to how these guys figure out all this stuff. For that matter how they know they could do this in the first place.
