I have been in Waco visiting Graham at Baylor University before he graduates next month and have had a blast. This is a great city.

Giving Tuesday (and Beyond)

You've probably been overwhelmed with online "deals" over the past week and a handful of "Giving Tuesday" options today. Everyone has a cause and an ask, but for whatever it's worth I thought I'd share a handful of organizations that mean something to me personally and that I've seen amazing work come from.

  • Love Does. I have always been thankful for the work that Bob, Debs, and company take part in. By providing a safe and fun environment for kids to learn in, they create future leaders who break cycles of poverty, restore hope in their communities, and spread love wherever they go.

  • Bro-Am Foundation. Not only are the guys some of the best guys you'll ever know, but their heart to make a difference in the lives of deserving yet underprivileged youth is so awesome.

  • PastorServe. PastorServe is a ministry I know, trust and personally support. This year, PastorServe is dedicating Giving Tuesday to serving Haitian Pastors impacted by Hurricane Matthew. Go to their website to find out how you can help Haitian Pastors by giving Haitian pastor couples an experience they will always remember.

  • Young Life. Through a handful of really important people in my life, I have learned from multiple sources how important Young Life is to introducing people to Jesus.

  • Show Hope. I love how Show Hope paints the message of the gospel with the story of adoption.

  • Preemptive Love. These people are going to really hard places and loving people anyway, regardless of circumstance.

  • Nations Foundation. I am a new Nations super fan. On top of donating, buy the journal!

  • Charity Water. I really appreciate what Charity: Water's attention to detail and care on the mission of providing clean water to people who need it on a massive scale.

On the for-profit side, I have been very impressed over the past few days of the messages sent by Patagonia, Miir & Soma about how to be conscious consumers.

We made it back after a fantastic month in Brooklyn. So much good there: good people, good food, good culture. We loved it.

  • Congrats to Nick for the amazing film and the Vimeo Staff Pick:

  • Ran across this C.S. Lewis quote this week which I've loved! "Before we can be cured, we must want to be cured." You feel that?!

  • In honor of a great dude now being the official bassist / member of Local Natives, had to post this great La Blogotheque video they put out recently:

  • Here is a good reminder for the week ahead: "God never hurries. There are no deadlines against which He must work. Only to know this is to quiet our spirits and relax our nerves." -A.W. Tozer, The Pursuit of God

  • Denison Witmer has a new record out! Support good music.
