I really comprehend the fact that some of what I have to say sounds a little weird. But the more and more I purge myself of the stuff that had my focus so turned away from God, the more I shred myself, the more I have a greater connection to God. And what I know now that I didn't know then is that's why I'm here.
We are not trying to reinvent the wheel; we are just trying to bring God and the Bible to the kids in a hard-core way that they can relate to. There is almost nothing out there in the Christian marketplace that the kids can connect with! This same idea holds true in the Mainstream marketplace where the kids will start to see that the faith-based culture can be MORE hard-core.
I've had a great time. I've had a great career and I've obviously had a very radical conversion in my life. It's very tangible. It's very real. It allowed me and enabled me to become the person that I couldn't on my own. Which is the most powerful part of this whole equation for me. And now I want to do whatever I'm supposed to do to continue to be obedient to that.
