Justin Bailey

I am currently a student at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, a Starbucks barista, and a part of a great church in Imago Dei. I moved to Wake Forest, NC from Pineville, LA on June 1, 2011 to start school and be a part of the planting process of Imago Dei here in North Raleigh. Most of my musings will be from the vain of one of these three aspects of my life along with other things thrown in there.

Amusing Ourselves to Death

Denny Burk comments on how 9-11 revealed what entertainment truly is and how we use it to distract us from weightier and more eternal matters. “Given everything that has happened in our national life since the attacks, this moment seems less like ten years ago and more like a hundred years ago. Nevertheless, there is … Continue reading

Biblical Authority

Not Your Typical Surprise Party

From TheResurgence and TIm Chester’s new book “A Meal With Jesus” Tony Campolo of a time when he was speaking in Honolulu, Hawaii. Campolo lives on the east coast of the United States so his body was six hours ahead of Hawaiian time. At three o-clock in the morning it felt like nine o-clock to him. … Continue reading

Losing My Wallet and The Glory of God Displayed

Last night I was able to enjoy some dinner and fun at a friends apartment. After all the excitement of dinner and a show from their little boy, playing air guitar on a tennis racquet, we decided to go outside and kick a soccer ball around. We just kicked around with each other for a … Continue reading

New Town, New Blog, New…well a lot of things (pt. 2)

I realize it has been a long time since a post, but I will be returning to the world of blogging fairly soon. This time a little different goal in mind. So as the title says…Coming Soon.

World Cup Thoughts

So I will be the first to admit that I have done a horrible job keeping my goal of commenting on the World Cup. I haven’t written anything since the US-England game. O.k., quick side note because I feel like this needs to be said… I was reading the other day a blog by an … Continue reading

Thoughts on United States vs England

So let’s start from the beginning… ABC started coverage at 12:30CT so they could continue to milk the 1950 goal miracle that has been flooding ESPN and Sports Illustrated, so I decided not to watch most of it. When the players took the field you could see a noticeable difference between England and the USA in their faces. England, … Continue reading
