I’ve got things for cat people and dog people, and people who love naps in this weeks’ Snack Pack.
In the VlogBrothers video below, John Green shares about the only Psychiatric Hospital in Sierra Leone and its 199-year history.
It made me think about churches, missions, and non-profits and the ways we, as the church, can make a difference in the world.
Seinfeld recently celebrated 30 years since its first episode aired back in 1989. It’s been lauded as one of the best TV shows of all time, despite being a show about nothing. Seinfeld is also my favorite sitcom of all time.
One of my pastor friends recently published an article on the Youth Worker Collective blog about what youth ministry leaders can learn from Seinfeld. So I thought I’d write a similar article for other church leaders—especially those in church communication.

Few aspects of modern worship are as often mocked as lighting. Frequent comments range from “What is this? A rock ‘n’ roll concert?” to “You all are going to hell!”*
But I would contend that the lighting is very important, as it helps to create an atmosphere in which (most) people are able to focus on God, not themselves and not those around them. To the people people who argue that a fully lit sanctuary is more holy or at the very least more appropriate for the solemnity of a church service, answer me this: how lit do you think church services were in the first through to nineteenth centuries?
This past weekend, Jeremy and Eric were able to meet face-to-face for the first time!
Yes, that’s right, they’ve known each other since 2011, but it wasn’t until 2019 that they finally met in person.
This week they share their experience, thoughts, and reflections over online vs face-to-face friendships.
An article on portion control for our consumption of things on the internet, and a video about cooking recipes from Breath of The Wild, really put the “snack” into this week’s Snack Pack.
