Here is a section of my recent newsletter that didn’t make the cut. My editors thought it was a little gross for most people’s tastes. So I’ve preserved it here.
They say insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting a different result. So how many of us stay in our dysfunctional patterns, sinful ways, and foolishness, and keep reaping the same results, year after year?
Destin Sandlin of Smarter Every Day decided to solve one problem we all face – poop splash. Using play-do, it’s not a gross video. Go check it out his solution. Forewarned is forearmed.

And the health and potential of this ministry is in no small way dependent on how well I am willing to rethink how I do things.

Cleansing is just the way he works.
