Weekend musings: Jonathan, Orange County, and scrambled eggs

Hey everyone,

Wow, the video I posted of Jonathan at Prestonwood has created quite a stir. It is really effective to show, especially to young people who were raised in the Church.

Jonathan is not a “public speaker,” per se, at this point. But I asked him to tell his story and he did so honestly and, I think you will agree, poignantly.

I will be going back to Harvest Bible Chapel in Chicago later this month. James MacDonald, the pastor at Harvest Bible Chapel, spoke with Jack Graham from Prestonwood, and Jack told James that Jonathan ought to do this for our screening of Lost Boy: The Next Chapter there too.

So Jonathan will do this again next Saturday and Sunday in the Windy City. Be praying!

New weekly study in OC

We have also gotten a lot of very positive response to our new OC study that will be launching in the second week of March.

People are very interested in the study itself, as well as the web connection that we are going to roll out soon. So stay tuned on that.

“Surviving the Shipwrecks of Life”

I am almost done with my series in the Book of Acts that I have called Upside-Down Living.

This Sunday, I will speak on “Surviving the Shipwrecks of Life.” I hope the message will be an encouragement for many, as I seek to “comfort with the comfort I have been comforted with.”

How to Cook Eggs

OK, now from the sublime to the ridiculous.

As I have shared before, I only know how to scramble eggs and make quesadillas for Stella. People have asked me what my “recipe” for eggs is.

So, in a moment of wackiness and just for fun, we decided to video the whole process. Jonathan also makes a guest appearance.

So if you want to see it, here it is.

Keep it up and maybe you can show us how to make “upscale” cereal…you know…with some fruit like strawberrys or something…oh yeah..and the toast too! LOL.

    Hello Pastor Greg,

    I just finished feeding my family. My son was watching this video clip and now he’s telling me he feels hungry again. Just when I thought I could take a break from the kitchen. Oh well . . . it looked good to me too! My daughter loves quesadillas . . . so I guess will be staying in tune for the next one.

    P.S. My husband knows the cereal recipe too.

    Hi Greg, I really enjoyed your video on scrambled eggs. I do the thing with the salt through the fingers too, for the same reason. 🙂 I’m going to try your recipe, it looks yummy.

    God bless you and your family,

    I want to say that those eggs look good. I’ve been following Christ since I became to the USA 11 years ago now. It is a pleassure to know more about Harvest. I can compare making eggs or quesadillas with how we read the Word of God and apply it in our lives. Everybody perceives the Word differently, but the whole point is how it transforms our lives. Just like making eggs transforms our lives, making us healthy, strong, and helping our brain function better.

    You make cooking eggs so easy! I just have one question. When you break the eggs into the bowl, you know that little white thing attached to the yoke, why don’t you take that off before cooking the egg? I personally always do, only because I think that is the chicken’s umbilical cord. I enjoy watching your videos, and can’t wait for the quesadillas!
