If you’re a regular Rambling with the Barba follower you were expecting a Photo Friday post here jammed packed with oddball photos from my current home country Paraguay, in the heart of South America. Have no fear faithful, Photo Friday will return to its regularly scheduled channel next week.
Today however, I’m guest posting over at Stuff Christians Like by Jon Acuff. Many of you are familiar with Jon and SCL as well as his other blog JonAcuff.com. Jon is the author of the fantastic book Quitter and Organizer of the Quitter conference series. If you haven’t read Quitter you gotta get on that.
If you moseyed on over here from my post at Stuff Christians Like feel free to take a look around. You may be interested in my Jesus Junk category of posts. I commandeered the term from a post appearing on SCL ages ago. I thought it fit the type satire I was writing in that series.
By far the most popular post I have written is an adaptation of the Dr. Seuss classic Green Eggs and Ham. It’s called Folks with Sin. Maybe you’re wondering how we got here in Paraguay as missionaries. The How to Make a Missionary series is a comical look at how God shaped us for this work.
Some of my personal favorites:

Here is an excerpt from today’s post:
Have you noticed over the last few years the alarming rate at which the average church-goer uses the word Amen in place of the word Yes? Who instituted the “Amen for Yes” lexicon upgrade? With the ever-filling church calendar, the average church attendee finds flipping back and forth from Amen to Yes exhausting.
All that Amen-ing may get you in the affirmative with your congregation but it doesn’t travel well outside of the Christian environment. Unless, of course, you live in the South (Bible Belt country) or Branson, Missouri, you may find yourself wishing you had a guide that alleviates this stressful decision making conundrum. Wish no more. To keep you from the embarrassing dilemma of the Amen Religious Affirmation Syndrome, I have written a few pointers. These are sure to help you navigate the often turbulent seas of positivity.
