Sometime You Have to Buy A New Home To Start Over

BlueJeanTheology Has Come To An End…

…but not really.  BlueJeanTheology has been a great way for me to share information about my faith, family and tools for years now, but recently I’ve been feeling the itch to create something similar but different.  Today I launched MatthewRathbun.me which will be my new site  to engage folks into conversations and share a bit of what’s on BlueJeanTheology, but more “lifestyle” stuff.

Why an entirely new site and name?  Easy.  It was time to start over.  BlueJeanTheology just has never really flowed for me as a name and the site design was dated at best.  A lot of the content that was here will be on the new site, but it will be more eclectic than just writing about faith.  I’ve always tried to be “real” online, but there is more that I’d like to share.  Believe it or not, it was easier to start all over than to reconstruct this site and I got to do things right from the beginning.  I was so new to blog design when I started BJT so many years ago that I made a lot of mistakes.  That’s fine, it’s part of the learning.  Now it’s time to move on.  I hope you’ll bookmark and subscribe to www.MatthewRathbun.me I think you’ll like what I have in store!

Funny and True: Shoot Christians Say

by Matthew Rathbun on June 1, 2013

I’ve often quipped about the “Christianese” that we’ve developed.  The funny thing is that people will speak Christianese with other Christians and then speak like a normal person around everyone else.  I’ve even found myself doing it, even through it irritates me. This video is pretty funny and calls a lot of attention to our religious vernacular.

Beauty By Train

May 23, 2013

Something New I travel a lot… I mean a lot.  This month alone I’ve been to Haiti (for missions) and the Bahamas for work, and everywhere in between.  I travel by plane most of the time and I’ve done every mode of ground travel you can imagine from Haitian Tap-Taps to chauffeured limos (very rare).

Congress, Commonsense and Apple [RANT]

May 23, 2013

I honestly try and stay away from politics on this forum, but this has got me baffled… Ok, so… Apple has created 600 US jobs and pays THIRTY percent of their domestic income to US taxes. That’s 30 percent or almost 1/3 of every dollar in US Taxes so that the US can put it […]

The Most Powerful 9 Minutes You’ll Spend Online

April 21, 2013

I book-marked this awhile ago, and hadn’t listened to it until tonight.  This was one of the most spine-chilling; emotional nine minutes I’ve every spent online.  I’d love to see this be broadcast at a service and then just let people sit for awhile and dwell here.  Powerful.

Grace Church of Fredericksburg, VA – Alpha 2013

March 23, 2013

We’ve been with Grace Church for a long time, but one of my favorite events has been the Alpha program.  For three Sundays, our church transformed the worship center into a fellowship hall where everyone was asked to invite friends and enjoy breakfast, a short sermon and then a chance to talk to one another […]

Leave Weekend Parenting to Big Brothers and Big Sisters. Be a Man

March 18, 2013

I was recently talking to a guy who is separating from his wife, because they “no longer got along”. He was explaining, with some resolve, that he was getting his kids every other weekend so that he could “keep being a dad”. That’s not being a dad. Playing with children every other weekend makes you […]
