For those that don’t know, Campus Crusade for Christ staff members raise their own salary, benefits charges, and ministry expenses.

We don’t see it as just asking for financial support, but as an appeal to partnership.  We want a team of people to reach college students with the gospel.  We volunteer to be the members of that team that go out and beat the bushes on the college campus.  But we need a team of people behind us to “hold the rope” financially and prayerfully.

We Christians get a bad rap for always asking for money.  I realize that.  This is not an appeal for you to send money if you don’t want college students to hear the gospel, or if you aren’t a Christian yourself.  Skip this post and stay tuned for more content that will be decidedly more light-hearted and fun.  But if you are a Christian, and you do want to see college students reached with the gospel, we need you.  Our team is not complete, and with the addition of the new little boy, our needs have increased.  Please prayerfully consider supporting us with your prayers and your giving.  Thank you for taking the time to read this.

The Associated Press: Packer out, Kellogg in as CBS lead hoops announcer

This is the best day of my 28 year life.  Billy Packer is hanging it up.

They make it sound like he is leaving on his terms.  I can’t help but think that his absolute idiotic “This game is over” statement with 7 minutes left in the first half of a final four game has a lot to do with him leaving.

All told, I am exceptionally glad he is gone.  Now maybe we won’t have an announcer who constantly tries to make his pregame “keys to the game” come true, and ignores what’s actually happening on the court.

“Coach is going to have to call a time out” 15 times in 3 minutes is not announcing.  It’s wishing you were coaching.

This could be the best year of Carolina basketball ever.
