Making Books in France

I don't know if I spend my days making books or selling them. I'm split between editorial work and marketing. I like the tension, but wish more people were passionate book-lovers. In any case, since I'm not writing anymore (for the time being), enjoy this video:

This Book Looks Good and Unfashionable

Tullian Tchividjian. That sounds like a good name. Almost as great as my own name…
This short video presentation of his book, Unfashionable, makes me want to read it. I suppose its the subtitle that gets me. I mean, I know a lot of unfashionable people (including myself), but just because we don't know how to dress doesn't mean we'll make a difference. Tullian's subtitle is "Making a difference by being different". Yeah!

Jérémie Finally Got His Clothes Dirty On the Logos Hope!

I'm off for a weekend at the beach… I hope you are all jealous. But relax this is a northern beach. I don't expect to even see the ocean. It's all part of an Easter weekend Church gathering. You can be praying that we would spend quality time together and grow closer to one another through this time.

Take a few seconds to see what Jérémie has been up to onboard the Logos Hope. Click here or on the photo to understand why he's got a mask on.

Celebrating God's Death

Every year at Easter, we celebrate the death of God. But how few of us know this? Again today, in English class, the teacher asked the students what they did at Easter and what it was about. Notice that I was in class on Good Friday. In France we don't even get a holiday.
These past two weeks I've read through the gospel of Mark with a friend. Our goal was twice each week. There are so many mentions in Mark about the deity of Jesus. I would encourage us all to read through a gospel this weekend and stand amazed at Jesus.
Below is Mark's account of the crucifixion of God.
And the soldiers led him away inside the palace (that is, the governor’s headquarters), and they called together the whol battalion. 17And they clothed him in a purple cloak, and twisting together a crown of thorns, they put it on him. 18And they began to salute him,(X) "Hail, King of the Jews!" 19And they were striking his head with a reed and(Y) spitting on him and(Z) kneeling down in homage to him. 20And when they had(AA) mocked him, they stripped him of(AB) the purple cloak and put his own clothes on him. And they(AC) led him out to crucify him.
 21(AD) And they compelled a passerby, Simon of Cyrene, who was coming in from the country, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to carry his cross. 22(AE) And they brought him to the place called Golgotha (which means Place of a Skull). 23And they offered him wine mixed with(AF) myrrh, but he did not take it. 24And they crucified him and(AG) divided his garments among them, casting lots for them, to decide what each should take. 25And(AH) it was the third hour[d] when they crucified him. 26And the inscription of the charge against him read,(AI) "The King of the Jews."

Ending the Recession is Easy (Child's play)

My 11 year old brother Nathan came up to me last week with a revelation. "I wish I could talk to the president 'cause I know how to stop the crisis."
Interested in knowing what this would be (admittedly with a bit of condescension) I listened to his miracle plan. "Its simple, money is what caused all this, so we should give up money! People should work hard and work for food"
Indeed that is simple. I'm nearly ALWAYS opinionated, but I'll spare you tonight.
