Welcome to the Monday edition of the Surf Report.
.: God :
On Sunday nights, my church has been going through a series called P-52. Two weeks ago, our speaker for the evening, Brent, talked about the concept of silence. Brent talked about how we are constantly bombarded with audio and visual noise. He said that this noise can serve to distract us from our relationship with God, specifically in the area of prayer. I don’t know about you, but I struggle with prayer. I’d much rather listen to something on my commute to work than sit there uncomfortably and talk to God. Why?!? This is another one of those areas, in my life, that requires discipline.
I want to encourage you to take some time to be silent.
.: Life :
Life is complex. My wife and I are on the brink of making several decisions which impact our future in a great way. These decisions require us to step out of our comfort zones and trust God. Is God who he says he is? Prayer would be awesome.
.: Gaming :
Fire Emblem: Awakening and Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood have been my distractions lately. I finally fired up AC and completed the Passion Play mission. That finished off Memory Sequence 7 which leaves me with two more sequences to go until the game ends. Best $20 I’ve spent in a long time.
Fire Emblem has become my go to lunchtime game. I love portable games! I’ve been plugging my 3DS into my car’s stereo and gaming the lunch hour away. Good times so far.
That’s it for this weeks Surf Report. Make sure to comment below and have a good week!

I just spent the weekend at a men’s retreat and spent 90 minutes (reluctantly at first) in solitude and prayer. It slowed me down and let me see what God is doing in my life. I don’t have to go away to the mountains on a retreat to experience such profound love, I wonder why I don’t seek him more often like that at home?
Hey Ted, thanks for stopping by. 90 minutes of solitude and prayer sounds hard. I can barely do 5 minutes without needing to check something. What was the topic of the men’s retreat (if I can ask)? Anything good?
