Easter and Spring

Easter was just a couple weeks ago. But I’m not sure that the Western church has a firm grasp on the significance and the power of what Easter really means.

Mc World redemption?

Yesterday I was at a meeting discussing increasing physical activity in Dallas and an upcoming workshop to do just that. One of our committee’s members mentioned that she had gotten donations of coupons for free chinese chicken salads and work out DVDs from none other than Mc Donalds. After much bad press Mc Donalds is […]

Wake up!

This great image at Hamo’s blog speaks volumes. It says in a single picture what would take me far too long to put into words. What to do once you “wake up”? Sine, Jenkins, and Dreher all have great suggestions.

Good Saturday

My first Spring back in Texas and there are as of yet no blue bonnets. Memories of the bright blue flowers harken me back to Austin where they seem to adorn every available field and patch of land. They are testimony that Spring has come. The death of winter is past! But alas, no blue […]
