presidential polls



let me draw your attention to the poll on the left hand side of my blog. over the last several weeks i have run many different polls and it appears that the majority of you feel that obama would be better than mccain at such things as wii, hungry hippos, hair-dressing, health-teaching, and so on. in part i have been running these polls just to bring some levity to an otherwise harsh and, at times, painful campaign season, as if asking which candidate is the better hungry hippos player has any meaning whatsoever. it doesn't. i don't need a president who can eat more hot dogs than the other guy. what we need, i think, is a president who can lead with clarity and conviction and integrity. we need a person who models a leadership that serves others rather than expecting to be served. we need a leader who is willing to take some risks, including the great risk of being honest. i don't know if either one of these men is that guy, but in less than a week we will elect one of them to give it a try.

now is your chance to participate in the highly respected and authoratative agentorangerecords presidential poll. the poll closes at midnight on monday night, just as the real election begins. the votes are anonymous, so don't worry about what anyone else will think. who do you think would make the best president of these here united states of america?

Pedro is not an option

I think Pedro would be the best president. He has a really sweet 'stache.

i will give you a new name

in our church, we are continuing with a series called "letters from Jesus," in which we are looking at the seven letters in the beginning of revelation addressed to seven churches in asia.  we are imagining what it would be like if we were to receive a hand-written letter from Jesus to our church.  what would it say?  how would we be encouraged?  how would we be challenged? 

we've looked at three of the letters now.  this week we looked at the letter to the church in pergamum.  the letter to them includes some harsh criticism of some of their behavior, but it also says that Christ understands how difficult their situation is.  and in case they feel like they are stuck in their sinfulness, Jesus says something amazing to them:  i will give you a new name. 

the world gives us so many names, doesn't it?  our parents, of course, give us our birth names.  but the naming doesn't stop there.  it continues right on through elementary school, high school, and into the …

running uphill in the wilderness (one step at a time)

back in early june, as part of an overall effort to get more healthy, i started jogging.  i was just kind of walking and running a couple of miles to start off, but over the last 4 months i've been staying consistent, which has helped me to run faster and further, lose some weight, and just generally be healthier.  on fridays, which are my day off, i try to run a longer distance, and i've been adding a mile every other week or so, which meant that today i ran 9 miles in about 99 minutes, which isn't great, but it isn't terrible, either.  mostly, it just feels good to be doing it, and to feel healthier in a general sense, physically, spiritually, emotionally, and so on. 

but there is one area that i haven't felt great about.  professionally, these last 8 months have been, without doubt, some of the most difficult in my 21+ years of full-time ministry.  now don't get me wrong: i love my job.  i really do.  it is so much more than just a job for me, but a vocatio…

Milinovich Family Christmas, 2019

merry Christmas, yinz guys.  we've been marking our advent journeys with an annual video now for the last twelve years!  for this latest installment, we used the Tractors' version of "Run, Run Rudolph," as a metaphor for all of our running around, and i hope it shows that we've had a real blast this year, preparing for Christmas.  you'll see scenes from getting our tree, making cookies, concerts, impromptu dance sessions, making snowflakes, and much more.  enjoy.
