The Prosperity Gospel

If you haven't seen this already, you should. The prosperity gospel creeps into my thinking on a daily is so woven into American Christianity (and third-world from my missions experience). Forgive us Father.

Get Smart

My wife and I finally got smart and for the first time hired a babysitter to watch our girls and put them to bed for the night. The key being put them to bed. Having the babysitter put the kids to bed means that mommy and daddy get to stay out past 7pm.

For dinner, we sat at a bar because the wait for a table would have meant that we missed our movie. We enjoyed a nice meal (I had a beer) and just talked with the warm breeze from the open windows in our face.

After dinner we went to see Get Smart. It was kinda cool to sit there, together, and laugh at the same stupid jokes. No, it wasn't a "great" movie, just a fun one. I recommend it. It had a little something for everyone. A little romance and some things blowing up. Although, sorry ladies, the "hunk" in the movie is not so much a hunk but the babe in the movie was indeed a babe.

After the movie we walked into a house (after 10pm) that was not only quiet but responsibility free. We paid the babysitter and soaked up the moment.

Get Smart= 3 stars
Using a babysitter = 5 stars
