TD Fri. – Frumpy Friday/Opening Message – Look Inside!

A throwback “classic” audio podcast from our first Frumpy Friday 4 years ago. Have a listen!

Hi TD,

Prolific social critic, Os Guinness, author of A Free People’s Suicide, has insightfully called America a “cut-flower civilization,” a term he uses to describe a nation that has been cut from its roots and foundations.  While a bouquet of cut flowers may appear vibrant and exquisite for a season, it isn’t long before it deteriorates and becomes ugly.

As a nation persistent in keeping God out of education and out of the public, over and over we are alarmed at the results.  TD, let us respond to the growing cacophony of what’s evil and wrong in our nation by passionately resolving to highlight the One who is Good and Right-eous, and who can bring true life and salvation to rotting and broken souls.  That’s done one person at a time through one genuine, authentic Christian at a time.

Transformed societies come from transformed people, not from those playing at or pretending to be transformed.  TD, we can’t change the world (yet), but we can change our worlds, and that’s where it starts.

Please join us on Friday as I give the opening message of our new theme, Renew: Transforming Our Lives in Christ.  

This Friday, we need you to come … frumpy.  Yep, frumpy.   Please come in ugly, frumpy clothes.  Don’t do your hair, don’t gel it, no hairspray, don’t blow dry it, don’t shave, don’t put makeup, no bows, no hair clips, no jewelry.  Wear your glasses, not your contacts.  Wear flip flops or old shoes you’d normally only wear around the house when nobody’s around.  We’ll explain at TD!

See you there! – Arthur

Join Us For an Open Forum with Ravi & Os on Thursday!


Hey TD!

I would like you to join us in Atlanta this Thursday for RZIM’s Open Forum at Georgia Tech with Ravi Zacharias and Os Guinness!  The theme is: “Unlimited? The Challenge of Human Freedom.”  The event will be live-streamed at, beginning at 4:30 p.m. PST.

I encourage you to use this as a tool to begin connecting with your friends.  Invite them to watch it with you and then discuss it with them in a gracious and humble manner.  It’s going to be an excellent time as they both present as well as answer questions during the Q & A.


We have been having a rich, life-impacting time here, and we are looking forward to being at the open forum.  We’d love for you to join us on the live feed and get sharpened, edified, and inspired.  You may even see us!

Let’s stay in the fight for doing what God made us for, TD! – Arthur
