We love this community, and are so glad to have each and every one of you here. But lately, we’ve noticed some alarming trends in comments. Rather than just not approve the comments without an explanation, we thought we’d do a quick explanation of a few things.
First of all, many of you are worried about being “impersonated” on the blog. We have taken steps to make sure this stops, or at least happens less frequently. Because of this, we can now see when you are posting as different people. Please keep this in mind when you are posting, as we can also see when you are having conversations between your usernames. If we don’t know which username is telling the truth, we can’t approve your comments. Because it causes confusion, we will no longer allow you to post under multiple usernames (and we’ve updated the Posting Guidelines to say this).
Second, we have noticed a lot of unkind comments on the blog. This is not a place of negativity, and if you post something that Whit or Connie wouldn’t say, we cannot let those comments through. We cannot approve comments that are unkind or inappropriate. Please remember what it says in Luke 6:31: “do to others as you would have them do to you.”
We try hard to make this a safe place. Any comment that has identifying information beyond your state will not be allowed to post.
Lastly, please be patient and kind to your moderators. Moderating is not our full-time job, but we do it because we love this community and want to help. If a post is taking a long time to come through, but meets all the guidelines, it’s probably because we are working hard to bring you new Adventures in Odyssey episodes! All comments will be moderated as soon as we have time.
Thanks for being a part of this community – we love reading all of your comments, and we regularly pray for you. Have a great day!

Whether he’s inventing a new machine to teach about the Bible, sharing wisdom with the kids at Whit’s End, or behind the counter making a World Famous Chocolate Soda, John Avery Whittaker is a man of many diverse talents. And if there’s one thing that Whit has never been, it’s predictable. Whit is always creating new ways to engage with kids and get them excited to learn about God.
So what’s he up to now? Whit’s latest adventure may be as surprising as he is.
Whit is challenging the mascot of DudePerfect to a trick shot battle. Who is DudePerfect? They’re a great group of guys who have become famous by making videos of themselves doing hundreds of amazing and innovative trick shots. Every once in a while the Dude Perfect mascot, Panda, takes a few trick shots of his own. Will Whit’s challenge to their mascot be answered? Only time will tell.
In the meantime, enjoy seeing another side of everyone’s favorite ice cream emporium keeper.
