I just recently picked up the Neil Young ‘Heart of Gold’ dvd. There was a great rendition of this song on it. It’s probably one of my favourite Neil Young songs. Enjoy.


Was he thinking about my country,
or the colour of my skin?
Was he thinking about my religion,
and the way I worshipped him?
Did he create just me in his image,
or every living thing?

When God made me.
When God made me.

Was he planning only for believers,
or for those who just had faith?
Did he envision all wars
that were fought in his name?
Did he say there was only one way
to be close to him?

When God made me.
When God made me.

Did he give me the gift of love
to say who I could choose?

When God made me.
When God made me.
When God made me.

Did he give me the gift of voice
so some could silence me?
Did he give me the gift of vision
not knowing what I might see?
Did he give me the gift of compassion
to help my fellow man?

When God made me.
When God made me.
When God made me.

– I’ve been super tired lately. I think it’s a combination of a) being busier than I would like to be, b) going to bed late and getting up early and, c) not eating as healthy as I’d like to. As a result I’d like to resolve to a) be less busy, b) make a habit of going to bed earlier and, c) eating less merde and eating more health stuff.

– Our Jetta has been in the shop since yesterday and just heard back today. Four wheel brake job including new rotors + oil change + $750 = merry Christmas.

– I’m working on a bunch of stuff for youth at the moment. We have a retreat in early April and then we’re going to Chicago in July for a week to serve with YouthWorks. Check it out HERE.

Should pastors be paid?

The Restless Age played a pub in Newmarket last weekend and kicked arse. Kudos boys!

– I’m going to see the Raptors play the Nets on Monday with big Mike. Vince will hear from us, you can be sure of that.

– I haven’t posted a real post in a little while but I think I shall do that soon.

Grace and peace.

Hey so here are a couple of things you may or may not find interesting:

1) A friend from college and some of his peoples have been putting together a doc on church planting in Canada. Looks cool, make sure you check it out when it drops!

2) Jose and JO are looking/feeling a little tender. The raps have no defense. Bosh is one of only 2 players in the NBA logging more than 40 minutes a game right now. Recipe for disaster?

3) I heard a rumor that Avery Johnson might be available for a coaching gig.

4) What in the world is Mike thinking? Really? REALLY?!!

5) This was super encouraging to read on a Tuesday morning. Good on ya Spungen’s!

6) Friends of mine are having a show/CD release this Saturday night at The Lion and Firkin in Newmarket @ 9:30pm. No cover charge. Check their music out here and the show invite here.

7) I’ve been hoping to go back to school and start working towards my masters for about the last 2 years or so. Tomorrow morning I have a meeting at Wycliffe College and if all goes well I’ll be applying for September 2009 on a part-time basis.

8. I got a new guitar about 1.5 weeks ago and have been playing it ever since. I stopped playing about 7 or 8 years ago but am just now taking it up again. I got a sweet deal on a nice Takamine!

That’s about all for Tuesday.
