You know you are a Methodist geek when ...

You purchase two John Wesley "bobble heads."

The first was sold by Cokesbury during annual conference. I purchased after seeing pics on Instagram. (I was at camp following the conference on twitter and Facebook at night.) Totally worth the $23. (it's nice when you are friends with the bookstore manager on Facebook.

The other is an app. Yes, I also found it after a friend joked about it on twitter. Ah, the power of social media.

I Love the app Especially when it talks back to you when you move Wesley's head. I love the quotes it spouts off. Yes at least one review in the app store was negative, but that didn't stop me for two reasons.

When my students saw both, they thought it was for George Washington. So I had an unexpected teaching moment as I told the,about Wesley.

The other reason? Both simply make me laugh.

Honestly, the app developers did have a side motive. They wanted a way to highlight four adults who impacted the Nazarene Church. It worked. I learn about their efforts for the church (and even watched the history lesson video).

Are these for everyone? Probably not.

But if you are a Methodist geek, with a sense of humor, check them out.

To find it in the app store, search for NazHeads.
