Join with me in suffering, like a good soldier of Christ Jesus. No one serving as a soldier gets entangled in civilian affairs, but rather tries to please his commanding officer. Similarly, anyone who competes as an athlete does not receive the victor’s crown except by competing according to the rules.

Ghost Riding

Good day everybody. I just learned about this new craze called Ghost Riding. What a riot this is. Have you heard of ghost riding? It apparently originated with the Hyphy rap music scene in the Bay area of California. For you geographically-challenged - that is Oakland and San Francisco.

The way ghost riding works is this:
1) You "crank up the system" in your car.

2) You put the car in idle.

3) Everyone in the car jumps out on the street or on top of the car and dances while the car is slowly moving down the street.

***Disclaimer - I am NOT recommending you do this dangerous activity!***

It is so funny to see videos on YouTube of ghost riding. Mandy and I have a new favorite viral video website that shows people ghost riding all kinds of vehicles including electric shopping carts, horses and even tractors! It's hilarious - Check it out at These guys are from Lillington, NC near Fayetteville. No garbage on their site, just funny videos. Enjoy!

I know that this post is totally pointless, but do blog posts really have to have a point?

Hope to see you and your friends and classmates at our T.O.R.C.H. meetings in February. We will be studying TRUE LOVE WAITS. This study will be for everyone from 6th-12th grades even if you already signed the TLW commitment last year.

By the way, CONGRATS to the Lee's for winning the O' Tacky Tree, O' Tacky Tree contest. Jessica and Madison were co-winners (and unofficially Sam also). They won a movie pack including a Blockbuster gift card, popcorn, drink and snacks. Thanks for all who participated!
