It's Maddening I Tell You

It drives me CRAZY to know that there are now two people who have things that I really want and not only do I not have them, I can't even get them. The first is the new Hillsongs United album. Tim has had it for at least two weeks, and I can't even get it until April 4. Right now I'm not liking Tim very much! (Actually I like Tim a lot...it's hard to stay mad at him long!) Actually I have friends in Australia right now...I wonder if their cell phones work... The second is the new Brian McLaren book. Brian has it. In fact he's already read 2 chapters, and again I can't get it until April 4. (I'm coping though...I just started Paker Palmers, Let Your Life Speak this morning which will lead to a lengthy post sometime in the future). April 4th...why do you mock me so! Where are the "I would like an advance copy please" lists. Where do I sign up? I know I don't rate very high on the "important people in the evangelical community" list, but I think I'm a nice guy. I don't even mind paying! I'll probably even plug both resources to my vast audience on this blog (okay, it's probably not THAT vast, but I'll still plug it!) SIGH...it's snowing in Illinois...on the second day of Spring...I'm acting quite curmudgeonly...but it's all in good humor. (yes, sadly, this post smacks of envy!)

hey man, its Ben from Nexus. I have a blog now, its swishthedish.blogspot.com

I actually just posted my 2nd post (a milestone in my blogging career) and it kind of deals with Brian McLaren. I'd love to hear your thoughts on it if you get a chance to read it, but if not, no big deal man. God bless

Why do you have to wait until April 4? I saw it today (March 29) at the Border's in downtown Indianapolis.

the original street date said Apr. 4, but after this post we did some digging and found out that it had been released early
