Randy Alcorn's Blog: Fun

The Things Dogs Teach Us About Life

Golden Retriever PuppyThose of you who follow my blog or Facebook know that Nanci and I love dogs. She and I like to talk about our resurrection (post-bucket) lists, consisting of all the things we look forward to doing after we die, and in particular, after the resurrection. Nanci’s post-bucket list includes her dream to spend a lot of time with dogs.

The Panda, One of God’s Creatures

PandaGod says He reveals His attributes in His creation. Check out and enjoy just one of thousands of His creatures—the Panda. 

When the Dog Stays at Home Alone...

Our dear friend Diane Meyer, always alert to dog videos, passed this one on to us, and we enjoyed it. Also for cat lovers, though the cat has only one action scene.

Dogs, Human Ingenuity and Delight in God

Maggie GraceOur Golden Retriever Maggie got a kick out of this video, and so did we. Makes you smile, and I believe it makes God smile. It’s a little tribute to human ingenuity, as God’s image-bearers, and to canine adorability, both reflecting the creativity and beauty of God. 

A video that celebrates people, dogs and laughter (and in doing so celebrates our Creator)

MaggieGod gives us greater and lesser reasons for laughter, but the lesser ones are a gift from Him also. Here is a video that works in any language—and that shares the delight in the universal language of laughter. Nanci and I loved it. I don’t think our Golden Retriever Maggie could quite pull this off, though she would love to be given the chance. 

Do I think the team with the most Christians will win the Super Bowl?

Driscoll interview with Seahawks playersIf every player on one team were an atheist and everyone on the other loved Jesus, I would never assume that the team with the believers would win! :) It’s funny, because that should be a given, but I think many people actually feel the opposite. And others assume that I think that way. 

Sharing Christ’s Love at Comic Con

Jesus with superheroesIn superheroes we see a secondary and dim reflection of Jesus, who is the Primary, the Light of the world. When superheroes “save the world from evil,” it’s that dim reflection of Jesus the Rescuer intervening to redeem His people.  (I can’t find who to credit for this cartoon with Jesus, the Hulk, Spider Man and Captain America, but I like the point it makes.)

Using the Platform of Professional Football to Honor Jesus

Chris Maragos with Randy's grandsons Jake and TyThere are athletes who are Christ-followers on many professional sports teams. The National Football League has a significant number. I’ve had the opportunity to meet some of them, including Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, left tackle Russell Okung, free safety Chris Maragos and long-snapper Clint Gresham. I recently had the opportunity to talk and pray with these guys and others the night before a game. Here’s Chris Maragos with my grandsons Jake and Ty.

The Gift of God-Honoring Laughter

Randy and Nanci AlcornNanci and I laugh together every day, often hilariously. Sometimes we can’t stop. When our now-grown girls were young, there was always a lot of giggling and laughing and carrying on at the dinner table, and Nanci and I were in the thick of it.

Som Sabadell Flash Mob and the Gift of Music

MusicI love the transcendence of great music. God, the Creator of Music, gifts His image bearers to praise Him, some knowing Him, some not.
