In the summer of 2016, my boys and I took a road trip from Chicago to LA on historic Route 66 (2448 miles). Each day, we created a new 3-4 minute video, and I posted them that night.
I had never finished the final video until I had some down time during a certain recent hurricane. Until now, this video was like my personal version of The Beach Boys' "Smile", or Springsteen's "Electric Nebraska", or (dare I say) Ghostface Killah and MF Doom's "Swift & Changeable" – unfinished and unreleased.
Well friends, here it is. Route 66 Road Trip, Day Eleven: San Bernardino to Santa Monica Pier.

Very proud of my lovely wife @d3d3hunt3r, as she begins another school year – this time, not as a teacher, but as a principal. Love watching her chase her dream, and thrive in her new role.

On this, our 23rd wedding anniversary, I pull out this ol' gem on monogamy from Jamie Smith. "Cultural forces extol the alleged thrill of sexual escapades, the novelty of one-night stands and triumphs of unending libidinal conquests. What they can't know is the unspeakable joy when a woman who's slept beside you for 25 years rolls over in the morning and says, 'I love you.' "Imagine how mind-blowing *that* is: this woman who knows everything about you, whom you've disappointed a thousand times, is still here." — James K. A. Smith
Preaching on Psalm 27 at @citychurchftl this morning.
Our tour guides will be Georges Seurat, Chuck Palahniuk, the B52s, Flannery O'Connor, Leo Tolstoy, Gus van Sant, and King David as they point us to Jesus.
