The New Blog Website

Hey everyone, I have great news! Not only are we about to move into a brand new building called "The Block" but we also have a brand new blog. It's way better and way cooler and it's just for you! It has a brand new look and feel with much of the same information along with a lot more. Your parents will like it too because it will have more info for them as well! Jonathan Claytor is an expert in creative design so I think you are going to like what he has done!

However, the new blog is still so nothing has changed there. The next time you come to this blog, you will be at the new one! Feel free to look around, explore, and let us know what you think!

It's poll time

Sunday, February 22, 2009

On Friday, I went to Hudson Middle School and saw them put on the play "The Wizard of Oz." They did a great job, but this had special appeal to me because I've always had a little obsession with The Wizard of Oz.

This morning at Edge we talked about identity and it actually makes me think of the characters Dorothy meets in Oz: the scarecrow, the tin man, and the lion. Each of them desperately wants something they think they lack. The scarecrow wants brains, the tin man wants a heart, and the lion wants courage. What these lovable guys don't realize is that they already have those things in abundance! And they unknowingly use them to help Dorothy get home.

For us humans on this side of Oz, I think one thing we all desperately want is to be loved and accepted. But the truth is that God has already give us the greatest gift of love and has accepted us into his family if we choose him. How sad if we, like Dorothy's friends, went through our journey without realizing what our true identity is: we are children of God, loved beyond what we can ever comprehend.

Last night at Edge we talked about hope. My definition of hope was "wanting something that you know you are going to get." As a believer in Jesus Christ, our hope is heaven. We want it and we know we are going to get it. If you know Christ, you have a hope inside of you that no one can take away. I hope you remember that and that it changes the way you live your life today!

Don't forget, last night was the last Wednesday Edge at HCC! Next week, there will be NO EDGE, and on MARCH 4th, we will meet at the Block for the first time. For more information on The Block, CLICK HERE!

Tough Stuff

Most of you know by now the situation that happened with Mr. May from Hudson Middle School. This morning at Edge, I talked about how we should respond to what happened. Here are a couple things for you to take away.

1. This if our chance, as Christians, to shine. It's our chance to have the courage to stop rumors and not make judgments about anyone.

2. It's also the perfect chance to encourage the boy who turned Mr. May in. It will be tough for him, but he did the right thing...stand up for him and love Jesus.

3. Remember that Jesus never promised a life without problems or pain. But he did promise that he has overcome the world. Don't forget that!

John 16:33
"In this world, you will have trouble. But TAKE HEART! I have overcome the world."

Edge Recap

Last night was our second night in the series called "SO WHAT?" We talked about how the Christian life is so far from boring! Some people think that before you are a Christian, you look like this first picture and then once you become a Christian, you look like this second picture. Not true at all! When you begin to follow Jesus Christ, you only just start to live. Remember, you are someone that has gone from death to life!

Remember the line from the Transformers clip. "50 years from now, do you want to look back and say that you never had the guts to get in the car?" 50 years from now, do you want to look back on your life and regret that you never surrendered your life to Christ? Live the adventure today! You will never regret it!
