I've had the opportunity to lead several small groups based of the Francis Chan book "Crazy Love". The discussion questions that come with the DVD study leaves a lot to be desired.

about other people’s affairs, the happier I am. I’m not interested in caring
about people. I once worked with a guy for three years and never learned his
name. Best friend I ever had. We still never talk sometimes.”
“Now, I know I’m
not going to find somebody that’s both aggressively mean and apathetic. April
really is the whole package.”
“You had me at meat
“I’m surrounded by
a lot of women in this department. And that includes the men.”
“When I walked in
this morning I saw that the flag was at half mast, I though, ‘All right,
another bureaucrat ate it!’ And then I saw it was Lil…
After 400+ blog post stretched over 3+ years, I have decided to close down jesusgreek.com. It's not that I don't have any more rants or musings about life I wish to share, I just don't have the desire. Thanks for reading and for all the encouraging and not so encouraging discussion that has been shared here.
