A Minute in Minutiae

WOW! It has been a long time since I have updated this blog but today I was compelled to write.

Today, I felt myself getting caught up in minutiae of life.  I mean I was thinking about something that got me really upset. Then I had to catch myself.  I should not let someone's opinions get me down.  There is no need for it.  There are so many other things to think about and be concerned over.

However, when you spend to long in the minutiae several things happen:

- mood changes
- unchecked emotions
- erratic or unadvised statements or actions

I found myself falling into that trap and I was not satisfied with that.  As I came to a realization of where I was at I stopped.  Unfortunately, I had to spend sometime composing myself and normalizing.  Well I am back now and ready to go and have a great time at life.  I will love hard and enjoy living.  Therefore, I will not spend anymore time in the Minutiae!

Orange Think Tank Hangout: Social Media (with @xp3students)


So if you have been around me long enough you know I am really into Social Media.  I think its the new frontier.  In this medium there is so much to be tapped into and chartered.

Another thing that I am really passionate about is Student ministry.

Therefore, it was pretty cool to have an event to merge the two.  

I was invited by some of the leaders from Orange's XP3 Student Curriculum for an online hangout with few Student Pastors and Leaders from all over the world. 
(To Learn more of XP3 click here)

The topic of the hangout was "Social Media: Best Practice in Youth Ministry"

This online event was simply awesome.  I loved that I got to see and hear what other student ministries were doing in regards to Social Media.  

Well check out the whole thing here.
