Watch This Episode of CHOPPED! — Lance Nitahara, executive chef at CAMP-of-the-WOODS (where I spent many summers on staff), recently competed on a “redemption” episode of “CHOPPED” on The Food Network. The first time he appeared on the show, he lost to the eventual Grand Champion, Madison Cowan. In this episode, four chefs were given another shot to win. I don’t want to spoil the ending for you, but Lance certainly represents COTW very well, and conducts himself with grace at all times.

What are the things our youth groups should be focusing on if they want to make sure their students become truly committed to worshiping Christ in the local church?

Contempt for the Word will lead, eventually, to a contempt of words (Colossians 3:16). Christian discipleship should be marked by Logocentrism (John 1:1-18).”

Speaking of guys who loved words…
