Mike Cope's blog

Friday, April 01, 2005

I just got off an elevator at my motel in Midland, TX. A man getting on nodded to me and then said, "Your picks are all wrong." This blog thing is out of control. :) By the way, he's picking Louisville. No stinkin' way. Pitino can coach, but he can't play! They'll be whipped by Illinois, who in turn will be whipped by the Heels. Two of my six sessions at "Stream" are behind (the leadership conference part). I'm reminded again that Ken Young is one of the kindest men I've ever known. We make a pretty good team: I tend to be a "the-cup's-half-empty" guy and he's a "the-cup's-half-full-and-after-one-or-two-more-songs-it'll-be-overflowing" guy.

  • Mike, you're a gifted preacher, Thanks for all you do. But I have to say, your basketball picks will leave eating blog pie. But don't worry, we'll be here for you :-P

  • i am really trying to not be too depressed. this is the first stream that i have missed in about 7 years. i have moved to L.A. (lower alabama) and it is just too far and too costly for us to attend. i am bummed.

    i'm also bummed because i had duke and wake in the final, with coach k winning another championship while becoming the winningest coach in the tournaments history! oh well, there is always next year ;)

    i really enjoy your blog. i read it daily.

    oh yeah, can you ask ken when he is going to have the a stream type thing in nashville? i think he mentioned it last year or the year before, i think it would be GREAT!

  • I'm a Duke fan...so for Carolina to beat Michigan, that's fine with me. I was watching Michigan shokingly beat Duke last week when I had a little "heart episode" that put me in the hospital. After multiple tests and hours and hours in the ER, they finally sent me home with a heart monitor, told me to stay away from Chocolate, Caffeine, and Decongestants and eat a banana every day. Whatever...

    I didn't mention to the Dr. that I was eating dark chocolate and drinking a diet coke while watching my team lose.

    You'd think worship ministers would have a stronger heart than that...

  • Your head must be pretty big this morning, Mike "the Greek". Most of the folks who read this are too young to even know what that is all about. I am with you on Carolina! GO BLUE!

  • Great lessons this weekend Mike. It truly is a small, small world!

    (btw, krazy kenny, Ken did mention a Stream in Nashville sometime in the next year.)

  • jenni,
    THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
    i so missed being there this year. i moved to l.a. to be closer to my mother-inlaw, and my parents. my parents live in north alabama, and my mother-inlaw lives in lower alabama. living in texas was tough being that far from them. now it is hard being this far from my other family in texas.
    we had plans for making it to stream this year, but like i said, distance and finances put a damper on that.
    i so look forward to a nashville stream. there are three waiting to attend that one, for sure!

  • I am curious about two of the videos used at Stream (Midland). Can the video of the modernized parable (Jesus and the prostitute) and the "rap" type song about Jesus is ... be obtained or purchased? They were outstanding.
