Happy Birthday Jesse!!!!!!!!

Today my son Jesse is 12 years old.  I look at him and am just so amazed.  So amazed at how big he is and cool he is.  I’m amazed at how gentle a soul he is.  Amazed at his level of caring and impressed by his firey need for justice in the world.  I […]

Trusting God

I woke up with the simple thought that, in any given challenge, perhaps a good question is: How am I trusting God in the midst of this?

Superheroes and God

I came across a fascinating blog post by a guy named Kevin who discussed the rationale behind stories of superheroes in a Biblically true world.  I tried to write a response but it didn’t go through.  So, I’m just going to put it here: Great thoughts!  I’ve pondered this long as a fanboy of the Superhero genre’ myself.  […]

Jesus of the resurrection!

This week much of the traditional church is celebrating what is called “holy week” (which for most of you is a big Duh…but just in case others don’t know).  It is the week that Jesus returned to Jerusalem knowing full well what he was in for.  Knowing that he would suffer and die.  Isaiah says […]

Unbelief

I was listening to Think on NPR today.  And Krys Boyd was interviewing a guy who is an astro-physicist.  And it was a very interesting discussion.  But Krys asked a question as to what the fellow thought about God.  And he answered that he was pretty sure that there isn’t a God.  He said that […]

Choosing joy

I woke up with great joy this morning….which is cool.  But you know what I’m also realizing? Joy isn’t just something that happens to you.  It’s kind of like how you don’t really fall into love.  You don’t fall into joy either, imho.  You choose to be joyous.  So maybe a better way of saying […]
