Boycotting Fear? 4

Oh Facebook, you always seem to like to show stuff that I find myself disagreeing with. I’m sure it has something to do with the amount time I interact with said post and the amount of comments I put forth, but that’s here nor there. The latest such post to show up in my News ...

Some Solutions for the “ACM” 3

In my last post, The Anti-Church Movement, I gave some observations on what I perceive to be an “Anti-Church” movement within the Church. I won’t go into all the details here – you can read them in the other post. Prompted by a comment (thanks, David!) I’m writing this post in hopes to come propose some ...

The Anti-Church Movement 14

I’ve noticed a trend lately. Mostly from postings and blogs I’ve seen shared on social media. Gotta love social media.  I don’t have a better term for this phenomenon, so I’m titling it The Anti-Church Movment, or ACM. Don’t get me wrong. This isn’t some secular movement. No. It’s an internal movement within the Church ...

Coming Full Circle 2

I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase “coming full circle”. This weekend I experienced the reality of that term. If you’re not familiar with my story, here’s a nutshell version of what happened to me two years ago. On and around July 24, 2013 I experienced a massive manic episode. A complete breakdown. This resulted in ...

Where Do I Fit In? 1

Have you ever wondered to yourself, “where do I fit in?” Well, good news, you’re not alone. At least one other person has – yours truly. I’ve detailed my manic episode I experienced in July of 2013 here and over at The Marriage Fight (a blog Danielle and I coauthor). You can read those for some information ...

Same Love

So, if you listen to Top 40 radio, chance are you’ve heard Mackelmore’s newest song – The Same Love. It’s a lyrically interesting song, for sure. And Mac, if I may refer to him as such, makes some good points. We’re all God’s children Stereotypes are bad Preaching hate, especially from the pulpit, is always ...

Rage Against my Beliefs? 8

Recently Danielle sent me an article from Rage Against the Minivan regarding the issue of marriage equality and Christianity. I, of course, read the article and couldn’t wait to post some thoughts. The author’s main beef is that they perceive Christians as trying to push their religious beliefs on others / use their religious beliefs to ...

Dear Glennon 49

Glennon, I guess I should feel honored (maybe?) that you would “call me out” on a blog post. Since I love a good debate, I figured I’d respond here and maybe clear up my position a bit. I get that we don’t all have to agree, really I do. Would I like you to agree ...

The Suggestion Box

As a fan (and I use that term more and more loosely lately) of The Office, I remember a scene where Michael Scott had a suggestion box that was supposed to be used by the staff. This box, in theory, was to be checked by Michael to take everyone’s concerns into consideration. Thing was, he ...

Jesus and Tiger Woods

You might think Jesus and Tiger Woods have pretty much nothing in common. Hopefully by the end of this post you’ll see they their stories are intricately intertwined. I’ve been thinking on the topic of why Jesus came – why He did what only He could do this week. It is Good Friday and all. ...
