links for april 3

so last night the raptors got robbed in atlanta. i’m not even going to talk about it because it just ticks me off. but you can read about the shot clock problem here. apparently colangelo may be protesting the mistake to the league, although i’m not sure what would happen. can the league go back and change the outcome of the game giving toronto and win?


i came across this article on the 101 most useful websites.


on the topic of handy sites, here are two that i use quite often: da font (almost 8,000 free fonts to download for both PC and mac). the other site, that i just came across but am loving is keepvid. it gives you the ability to download to your computer videos from sites like youtube etc. all you do is plug in the URL and hit download. and the best thing is it literally only takes like 2 seconds. presto!


N.T. Wright has been getting loads of press in the last couple months for his view of heaven. wright strives to understand the biblical language of resurrection as opposed to basing his theology of the after-life (or, life after the after-life!) on philadelphia cheese commercials. i like. here are two recent articles on the topic.


there’s tonnes going on in the office/community lately. i’m currently in the midst of directing and putting together a trip we’re doing this summer with the youth. we’re heading out to glace bay in cape bretton, nova scotia to serve with dave sawler. in total there are 13 of us, and we’re driving! WHOO-PA! should be sweet. also, we’re running a sports camp for kids in the community for a week in the summer and we’re currently in the marketing stage of that as well as pulling together all the volunteers etc. also, i’m working with a group of students at a local highschool to figure out creative ways to be salt and light there and thats really neat!


this past sunday (march 30) was the youth service at ACC. we took over the entire morning service so the youth did everything. it was really cool. i also got a chance to preach for the first time at an ACC sunday morning gathering. i aimed for 40 minutes and ended up going for 63. eff. i spoke about the Church and our role in new creation. if you have 63 minutes to spare you can check out the talk here. enjoi.
