A mother took her little boy to church.
While in church the little boy said, Mommy, I have to pee.
The mother said to the little boy, it’s not appropriate to say the word pee in church. So, from now on whenever you have to pee just tell me that you have to whisper.
The following Sunday, the little boy went to church with his father and during the service said to his father, Daddy, I have to whisper.
The father looked at him and said, Okay, just whisper in my ear.
A Minnesota couple decided to vacation to Florida during the winter. They planned to stay at the very same hotel where they spent their honeymoon 20 years earlier. Because of hectic schedules, it was difficult to coordinate their travel schedules. So, the husband left Minnesota and flew to Florida on Thursday. His wife would fly down the following day.
The husband checked into the hotel. There was a computer in his room, so he decided to send an e-mail to his wife. However, he accidentally left out one letter in her e-mail address, and without realizing his error, he sent the e-mail.
Meanwhile.....somewhere in Houston, a widow had just returned home from her husband's funeral. He was a minister of many years who was called home to glory following a sudden heart attack. The widow decided to check her e-mail, expecting messages from relatives and friends. After reading the first message, she fainted.
The widow's son rushed into the room, found his mother on the floor, and saw the computer screen which read:
To: My Loving Wife
Subject: I've Arrived
Date: 16 May 2003
I know you're surprised to hear from me. They have computers here now and you are allowed to send emails to your loved ones. I've just arrived and have been checked in. I see that everything has been prepared for your arrival tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing you then! Hope your journey is not as uneventful as mine was.
P.S. Sure is hot down here!
Troy and Doug,
I really appreciate your method of ministry. The way you explain the Bible verse really gives me a better understanding. I don't read metaphors well and rarely take anything more than EXACTLY what is written away from my studies. I grew up in the church, but have always felt lost. I have always been a backslider and a poor example of a Christian. I think God has used you (Troy) to convict me, as well as give me comfort. You have touched on several of my personal struggles in your testimonies. It is such a relief/inspiration to hear a good Christian man that has gone through some of the same things I have. I have always called myself a Christian and yet have always felt out of place around other Christians, at church or otherwise. Some of my unspeakable thoughts leave me feeling like its hopeless and I will never be good enough, but your testimonies have helped me see otherwise. Please don't worry so much about going off on a tangent because those times you do are always my favorite parts of the show. I always get a lot out of them. I listen to the old shows over and over while waiting for the next.
Doug you did a great job with the show last week. I spent some time living outside Ft Valley and working in Perry several years ago, so I'm familiar with your neck of the woods.
In closing I too hope I didn't ramble too much, but I wanted to let you know that all of the work you guys are doing through God with the show is impacting/renewing my spiritual walk. Thank you and God bless.

Yup, still atheist, and still listening, not every week, but you guys do have some great topics. Thanks for the shows Mark
Weekly Bible Verse Romans 9:11-26 (ESV) “though they were not yet born and had done nothing either good or bad—in order that God’s purpose of election might continue, not because of works but because of him who calls— she was told, “The older will serve the younger.” As it is written, “Jacob I loved, but Esau I hated.” What shall we say then? Is there injustice on God’s part? By no means! For he says to Moses, “I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.” So then it depends not on human will or exertion, but on God, who has mercy. For the Scripture says to Pharaoh, “For this very purpose I have raised you up, that I might show my power in you, and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.” So then he has mercy on whomever he wills, and he hardens whomever he wills. You will say to me then, “Why does he still find fault? For who can resist his will?” But who are you, O man, to answer back to God? Will what is molded say to its molder, “Why have you made me like this?” Has the potter no right over the clay, to make out of the same lump one vessel for honorable use and another for dishonorable use? What if God, desiring to show his wrath and to make known his power, has endured with much patience vessels of wrath prepared for destruction, in order to make known the riches of his glory for vessels of mercy, which he has prepared beforehand for glory— even us whom he has called, not from the Jews only but also from the Gentiles? As indeed he says in Hosea, “Those who were not my people I will call ‘my people,’ and her who was not beloved I will call ‘beloved.’” “And in the very place where it was said to them, ‘You are not my people,’ there they will be called ‘sons of the living God.’”
Great book series I’d recommend God Built by Steve Farrar
Bundy Ranch Standoff/Federal Government Overreach What started the standoff to start with Does the federal government have the right to take your property and hold it captive. Do the people have the right to defend themselves against a government that is out of control. What kind of precedence does this set for future altercations.

NRA Armed Citizen Billy McCall, 78, was at home when he heard his wife scream. McCall grabbed his .380-cal. handgun and went to his wife’s aid. He found that a man had forced his way into their home and seized his wife in a choke hold. The armed intruder fired at McCall striking him in his stomach. McCall returned fire, causing the intruder to flee. The assailant was later dropped off at a local hospital where he died. He had sustained gunshot wounds to his abdomen, leg and chest. McCall is reported to be in stable condition and is expected to survive the gunshot wound he sustained during the home invasion. Mrs. McCall was reportedly uninjured.
