Tuesday night I went to The Abbey Coffeehouse (everything has a Myspace profile these days) for the “Emergent Cohort” Meetup. Basically a group of Christians “figuring out how to live our faith in emerging church and culture.” Diverse group of people and interesting conversation. I mostly listened. Check it out if you're in Indy, or see if there is one near you.
I saw “Gridiron Gang” tonight at a sneak preview with some friends. It's a pretty good movie, based on the true story of a football team that was started at a juvenile detention facility in California. Many of them were gang members with multiple offenses, and as you can imagine it was difficult to convince high schools to play this team of convicts. It's an inspiring story of learning self-respect, overcoming bloody rivalries, and even dealing with emotional scars from fathers. I'd recommend seeing it, though maybe catch a matinee (few movies are worth $9+ these days...). Stay through the credits for documentary footage of the actual people the movie is based on.
Is coming. I love it. Even if it's rainy now, I don't care – the cool air feels great.
Until Friday. At which time I'd like to do something. Maybe bowling?
Really digging the new Snow Patrol album. Vast improvement for them.
And it's beginning to get to me
That I know more of the stars and sea
Than I do of what's in your head
