Bod for God and my weekend

This is a new one, Pastor Steve Reynolds from VA has a new lecture out entitled, "Bod for God." I saw a clip of it on the Daily Show, and in this clip, Reynolds claims (in response to the question if God really cares about someones wieght) that, "the two basic things in the bible is to eat less and exercise more." HAHA, I could get really upset with this one, but it's just too easy. I guess one thing is that he's making money off of this, another thing it helped me realize is that he's not the first. I myself have never focused on the dietary requirements of Jesus when dealing with being "in shape" and never have I thought it to be such a pressing issue, especially when you consider the state of the human spirit and the world today. Apparently Pat Roberston even developed a weight loss shake to help fellow christians lose those pesky pounds, because we don't already have that on the market right? But I guess there are certain believers who just don't want to buy into the vain and secular world of weight loss and fitness products. Ughh. I suppose at a certain point in a pastor's career, it becomes a challenge to find new things to preach about? Or maybe he thought this issue was so important that he did indeed have to market it with a catchy slogan and interviews on FOX? What world do they exist in? What amazing world do they live in, in which the problems facing Christians are so minimal, inconsequential or merely exhausted, that a topic such as "turning to God to fill up this yearning instead of the refrigerator," is a focus. "About 40 percent of you need to lose weight," he told his congregation at Capital Baptist Church. "When you love potluck more than God, it's serious." Wow. It's all business I suppose. I'm gonna go eat a hot dog. Just google the name Steve Reynolds for more information, or "Bod for God."


Anyway, we just got back to VA yesterday from our weekend jaunt to play two college shows. This was a fun trip, I drove down a day early to test out my new car on the open highway, I was mighty impressed with the fuel economy. Our first show was in Florida and I saw some friends, ate sushi and had technical difficulties. From Florida, we drove up the 301 through the northern part of the state. It was a road that reminds me of how (maybe) time and money only affect certain parts of the state, while others seems to get caught in this blackhole of backwood despondance (because there is no "value" or "real estate opportunity"). But the funny thing is, it was all visual and superficial, I could not accurately describe the spirit of such towns, which may be quite abundant. And I mean no offense to those who find such towns refreshing. So I guess I'm admitting that my description of such a town is that of a passer bye, a passer bye that has been suburbanized and drunken on commerce since his first trip to Hollywood. Perhaps I should go back and live in that town to put my hands in the dirt and come back to some kind of earthly reality, grow my hair long enough to take root. I'm waiting for my "truman show" epiphany. (pop culture nod) Moving on..the next show was at Chapel Hill in North Carolina. This show went well, I loved it. The first band , a band called "The Old Ceremony" was really good, and everything (depsite the sterile auditorium) felt very warm. Talk to you guys and girls later.

Happy birthday Darth Delkins.

I don't think complaining about weight and making cute slogans will really lead to many people losing weight on a lasting basis. I admit I could probably stand to lose a few pounds, though... well, maybe more than a few. The thing I saw that made the most sense was a program someone did on the satiety value of different foods. I think I'm waiting for the list. LOL ;)

Anyway, just as an aside, I loved the movie The Truman Show. It's just so different from most of what's out there. I'm now thinking I'd like to watch it again.

I'm also rather a suburbanite. I don't want to be too far from all the amenities, nor too close the the center of the masses. lol Besides, I'm addicted to concerts. There aren't that many in the type of area you mentioned.

"Bod For God"... priceless. It seems organized religion wants to talk about anything but what truly matters - walking as Christ walked.
