Happy Anniversary

On May 21, 1994, I stood on a stage and watched Lorrie Miller walk down the aisle. We thought we were so progressive by not using Mendelssohn's traditional Wedding March, but rather Trumpet Voluntary, but then the trumpet player played it like he had his lips...

Being A Christian In Public

How to express or endorse your faith in public is one of the hardest things to do as a follower of Jesus in the 21st Century. It has always been that way, but given how connected we are as a culture and how globalized we are as a society, it just seems to be...

Bad Ideas for Mother’s Day

My dad was infamous for presenting bad gifts. One Mother's Day he came in from the garage, tossed a brown bag to my mom and said, “Happy Mother’s Day,” and then returned to the garage to work on the car. Touching. Fortunately, I’m a bit better at gifts than he was,...

What Guys Are Actually Saying

We men are not the most articulate creatures. We often have entire conversations with each other that consist of grunts, “dudes" and movie quotes. So when it comes to communicating with the highly intelligent and verbal female gender, we often feel like we are...

Mind Your Manners

If you’re like me, you watch the news at night or go on social media and think to yourself, “the world is just getting worse.” People, it seems, are just out for themselves, are becoming more and more inconsiderate and the things that divide us are becoming easier...

To What Degree Can We Disagree?

I gave some pointers last week on the blog about “how to live in a fragmented world.” I mentioned that just because there is disagreement, particularly within church communities, that doesn’t mean there is disunity. Just because we are unified, doesn’t mean we...
