It’s a dangerous thing to step outside your door. For once you place your feet upon the road; you never know where it will take you. Though I have not visited anyplace nearly fantastic as Rivendale or Gondor; I can certainly agree with that wise old hobbit, Bilbo Baggins.
If you missed it, the above is a partial quote from Lord of the Rings by J.R.R Tolkien. Like Bilbo and Frodo, I’ve been on a journey for the past few months. Like Bilbo, I am far from dead. Where have I been to? Let’s put it this way. It certainly wasn’t to Mordor or anything like that. Continue reading
For the past few days, I’ve been tracking a debate about video games, YouTube and YouTube entertainers. As I read the tweets found on Twitter, a question formed in the back of my mind. How can I contribute to the ongoing debate?
Outside of Minecraft, I rarely play any video games. I am simply not a gamer or I’d have created a YouTube channel dedicated to gaming. How did I get wrapped up in this debate? Though I’m not a gamer, I follow certain YouTube gaming personalities and I listen to their comments on Twitter.
What can I contribute to this raging debate? For YouTubers, parents and fans, I will point you to this old piece of advice. It’s found in an old letter and its advice is quite solid. How so? Continue reading

Did you know there are hurting people seeking help, with depression or plain stress? Would you believe that Christians can have a powerful impact through something like a video game? Continue reading
A few weeks ago, I got to see “Heaven Is For Real” with some friends. After I watched the movie, it seems a good movie to talk about.
What is “Heaven Is For Real”? It’s a movie starring Greg Kinnear. He plays the father of a little boy, named Colton. Connor Corum plays the role of Todd’s son, Colton.
Unless you have been hiding under a rock, there is a good chance that you have heard of this movie. For me, it has been the subject of many pleasant conversations. It seems a nice move about the reality of Heave; as seen through the eyes of a four year old little boy.
Did you know that this film has stirred up some controversy? I’ll explain it, shortly.
How would you like to take a poll? What kind of poll? I’m conducting a survey on what you like about Inspiration Point? Though I’m sure the site could use some improvement, it would help gather some feedback from you. Continue reading
Last Friday, I attended the Real Hope conference held at Shore Vineyard Church. Bob Hartley and Eddie Boasso were the guest speakers. If you’d like, you can visit the media page on my church’s web site and listen.
I love the practice of beginning a conference with intimate worship music. I’ve just had one problem. My vision and hearing makes this very challenging; as I can’t read the text on the big screen. Sometimes, I will drift into self or I’ll drift into the Spirit.
I, soon found myself standing before a beautiful home. I don’t know, if it was a cape cod or some other style. As I gaze upon the house, I could see the place was a work of art. The builder has chosen to use an array of earth tone colors for the house. Continue reading
What if Jesus came to your town? How do you suppose the scenes from “The Last Supper” would play out? Welcome to Jesus: Table For Thirteen! It is a contemporary musical drama performed at Shore Vineyard Church.
The story takes place inside a fictional Italian restaurant called “The Vine”. The restaurant is in downtown Toms River. What? I thought “The Last Supper” took place in something called The Upper Room in Jerusalem? Continue reading
