Gigi and I have been doing “The ATTIC” together for a year now. We have learned so much about ourselves, teenagers, Jesus, technology, PR, whimsy, tenacity, and had an incredible time. We’ve met some famous folks along the way, and talked with some teenagers who have hearts of pure gold and passionate purpose to change their world, one person at a time.
It has been a BLAST!
This website will continue and there are talks of other Internet radio opportunities in the future, but for now, we will take a break. I will take the next few months (including the Summer) and focus my efforts on building a dynamic youth ministry in Centreville, Alabama, and in the meantime, Gigi and I will discuss the best option for The ATTIC.
THANK YOU for your incredible support and please stay connected here and on Facebook and Twitter.

Can you imagine what the older brother must have thought that day…
They’ve been working the fields all day. It’s hot. That humid kind of heat, where the dust sticks to ya and adds an extra layer of nasty to your already filthy body. He’s hungry, but he knows it’s a few days until payday and the cupboard is pretty bare. It’ll probably just be a peanut butter and jelly sandwich tonight.
All the hired hands have followed the older brother in from the field and they are standing around the front porch, talking to the old man, his father, when all the sudden, his father stands up and sends someone to grab his binoculars. Someone is coming.
“Someone is coming!”
“Who could it be at this late hour?”
“Who is that, limping along, up our driveway?”
And as he puts the binoculars to his old, tired eyes, he immediately recognizes the face of his younger son. Battered, aged, and equally as tired (for a multitude of different reasons), but he knows that is his son.
The old man drops the binoculars and his cane and takes off, as if he were running a forty-yard dash. As the son limps, the father sprints.
Can you imagine what the older brother must have felt?
What if this wasn’t the first time the younger brother has left and returned?
Is this the third? The fifth?
Is he a repeat offender?
“Are you freakin’ kidding me?! That loser is coming home?!”
And as father and son, arm-in-arm, make their way back to the front porch, the old man asks his eldest, faithful son, to go and announce that they will celebrate tonight with a feast!
“I guess we’re not having PBJ’s.”
Are you the older brother?
Tired of giving second chances to someone close to you?
Have you begged your mom to leave your dad? I used to.
Is it your younger sibling? The party animal? “When will they learn?!”
Who are you tired of forgiving?
Are you the ever-faithful child of the Wonderful Father, who is sick of sitting on the sidelines, while the wanderers get all the attention?
Who is beyond a second chance in your life?
Be even-tempered, content with second place, quick to forgive an offense. Forgive as quickly and completely as the Master forgave you. And regardless of what else you put on, wear love. It’s your basic, all-purpose garment. Never be without it. Let the peace of Christ keep you in tune with each other, in step with each other. None of this going off and doing your own thing. And cultivate thankfulness. Let the Word of Christ-the Message-have the run of the house. Give it plenty of room in your lives. Instruct and direct one another using good common sense. And sing, sing your hearts out to God! Let every detail in your lives-words, actions, whatever-be done in the name of the Master, Jesus, thanking God the Father every step of the way.
