31 Million Second Rule

April 23, 2012

We have all heard of the 5 second rule. This of course in reference to if food falls on the ground there is a 5 second window. If the food is collected then it is deemed safe to eat. My question is this, is there a rule about how long something can go before you eat it?

This past week my wife and I celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary. It was AWESOME to reflect on how blessed I am! One of the coolest traditions is to eat your wedding cake. And by cool I mean it was frozen and then thawed out. The important part was to remember. We were not eating a year old cake for flavor. We wanted to remember about something very special to us. Traditions are a special way to help us remember the significant things we NEVER want to forget.

Here is the audio from last weeks sermon I preached at Statesboro First United Methodist Church. Also the read along guide I mention in the message can be found here.

am i listening?

I love my major. Learning in Communication Arts allows us to learn to think critically and then spit out our ideas of whatever the topic or situation is. It allows us to communicate to the world what we think. And so it helps us in this world we live in where we are suppose to constantly put “what we think” out there. The most popular websites are sites like twitter (you can read mine at the bottom of this page), facebook, and blogs. My question is do we ever really stop to listen? Or are we getting just enough info to fill 140 characters?

There is so much noise around. Ask yourself, am I really hearing anything through all of it? And am I only adding to it?
