Blue-eyed Jesus?

A friend of mine posted this photo on Facebook recently and I wanted to share it with you along with my comments. Why, you might ask? Do I think Jesus actually looked like a blue-eyed hippie from a movement that bore his name back in the late 60s and early 70s? No, I don’t. He probably looked more like a Navajo or Crow than a white guy. It's the caption that really caught my attention!

The reality is that underneath the skin we all look alike. So much so that Jesus looks like a commoner from every culture throughout the history of humanity. We can disagree as to whether or not Jesus looked anything like this fellow in the photo, but I believe the caption is absolutely true and accurate. He identifies with every one of us and will carry every dark secret and pain we keep concealed in our baggage. In fact, whether you realize it or not, Jesus has been carrying your baggage all along. The mystery of the cross has something to do with this mind-boggling truth. 

You don’t have to lug your "stuff" around isolated and alone. Choose Life and live unencumbered... and journey into freedom with a Companion who bears your burden and knows the way forward!

"Pretty On Top" (Video)

I made a short hike to the top of a rim near my camp on Reno Creek, Montana (Crow Rez). The land belongs to the Pretty On Top family. Seeing clouds linger in the late afternoon gave my the idea that a good sunset might be in the making. So I hiked to the top about an hour before dusk, hoping this would be the case. I wasn't disappointed. It was one of the grandest and most spectacular sunsets I've ever seen! The video I recorded was totally unscripted. Click the link below to view:

3 New Views From the Road

All I can say is precious and beautiful!! (Labor Day feast with the Pretty On Top family at Reno Creek)

I'm very excited about the addition of a new feature called "Views From The Road." I just uploaded three new "views" in this emerging video library of my thoughts, reflections, and biblical teaching from the road. I plan to continue to record these videos as long as the river keeps flowing, and I don't see that stopping anytime soon! My heart and mind are simply bursting with a new found appreciation for the truly good news of the gospel...one that has been abused and misunderstood by many for far too long.

My desire is for this virtual teaching ministry of Uttermost Road to grow and become a major thrust and focus. Being that it's internet driven and available online, the potential of reaching viewers is seemingly endless. This is where you can play a HUGE role in being a partner and growing the outreach and impact of Uttermost Road. It's only by making people know that it exists and where to find it is crucial. So, if what I'm sharing with you in these videos is valuable and worthy of mention, PLEASE tell your friends where to find a "good meal." If you're on Facebook or other social media, consider sharing the link with your friends and followers on those sites. And if you like what you hear, consider inviting me to your community of faith and I'll gladly come to you and share in person what Creator is sharing with me.

Powwow Time

If you've never been to a powwow, you've missed out on a special treat. I shot these video clips at the Circle The Bluffs Powwow near Scottsbluff, Nebraska. This particular powwow was particularly special because I know the Poor Bear family of some of the young dancers.

From the Steens to Southern Utah

This is another photo collection from when I left Mann Lake at the eastern base of the Steens Mountains in  eastern Oregon, to the breathtaking views of southern Utah. While in Utah, I met up with my friend, Larry Krumdiek, and stayed at Kodachrome Basin State Park and went on numerous hiking excursions in the surrounding area. The impressive geological formations seem unending! I'll be posting more photos and stories from the Navajo Reservation in a few days. Enjoy the sights!
