Newbie Number Tags

Thank you so much, Jesus Junk International. We were having trouble separating the "sheep from the goats," so-to-speak. We installed the turnstiles in the parking lots to get a more accurate count of attendance, but the newbies were sneaking through.We really needed a way to avoid another Twitter-gate. Ya' know, social media halts for no... Continue Reading →

Selfie Righteous

After an extended, albeit necessary developmental interlude,¬†Jesus Junk International is back and stronger than ever. A little market research was in order. We wanted our collective finger on the erratic pulse of Christendom to decipher what products were most desired, needed, even necessary. It was a scary enterprise, to be sure, but one we wanted,...

Dine-in Sanctuary

Remember those by-gone days when a refreshing malt was only the push of a button away? When a wheeled waitress would roll her way out to bring your tasty treat right to your seat, or even better, to your convertible? Remember rolling into a movie theater and never having to leave your car? Just grab... Continue Reading →

The Roulette Sanctuary

As a pastor, it is very frustrating, shares Pastor Boreman. People come early to get the good seats. By that I mean the ones in the back, near the door.

To compound this bit of lunacy, I did this accompanied by my wife, my two teenage daughters and my mother-in-law. Bad decision... Continue Reading →

Jesus Junk International believes Conference in a Carton is that strategy wrapped in cardboard box. Pastors realize that tithes and offerings are declining. Members, or Giving Units as they're called, want more bang for their... Continue Reading →

Photo Friday

It's been wacky around here for the last few days. Did you hear? Yeah, that's right we're going back to the United States for a visit. If you want to hear all about this weird mission life we live send me an email. We are making the schedule right now and you need to get... Continue Reading →

Photo Friday

It's been a couple of weeks since the last Photo Friday so it's time to gear up for the next installment of the tour. We have moved recently and I hope this will open up a new area of the city to my cell cam. Sorry, we do not validate parking. We will, however, direct... Continue Reading →

Stuff Missionaries Say…

Context is a funny thing. It can change the very meaning of a phrase or conversation. The longer I live here in Paraguay, the more I realize what kind of stuff comes out of my mouth. Stuff I thought I would never hear myself say. Crazy stuff. Wacky stuff.¬† Stuff, that in another culture or... Continue Reading →
