Being Holy

I was scrolling Facebook on my phone the other day (which explains why I missed the context of the comment that caught my eye), and I ran across a statement that made me cringe. When I went back to read it in context, I have to say that the person who made the comment, in […]

Being Free

We live in a country where we talk a lot about freedom, often equating the concept with our rights. Having been fairly engaged in political discourse for more than a decade now and growing up in the Navy where I understood that most of the adults I knew were serving the nation to protect our […]

God Talk – Wiggles n Things

This series is always a little strange. God calls me here to talk about the struggles often. Sometimes it is other things, but most often this set of pieces involves some kind of struggle I am facing. Tonight it is strange in more ways than one in that He usually doesn’t call me to write […]

Revelations – The Glory in the Process

I have finally hit a place of quiet tonight. I began a new endeavor these last two week doing video captions. It is odd to think such a thing would be an act of obedience that brings with it it’s own kind of blessing. But, one of the things I discovered, among the program tutorials […]

God Talk – Crooked Paths

I sit here tonight, up too late after a day spent with Corey and Jordan watching TV and playing games, with my heart heavier than I would like it to be. It has been a day of joy, remembering our blessings. Yet, Sunday is coming, and as it has the last few weeks, that reality […]

Revelations – Are You Ready?

One of the deepest struggles I have witnessed in my fellow Christians, and within myself over the years, is an unwillingness to accept the answers to our prayers. Prayer is a strange and funny thing. It is the means by which we speak to God, the means by which He speaks to us, and when […]

Revelations – You Will Know Them

One of the most difficult things I have run into in recent days was a comment in a conversation that we cannot know what a person’s walk is like outside the walls of the church on Sunday morning. That for all we know they might spend a lot of time outside Sunday morning being disciples […]

Revelations – Love and Transformation

There is a popular meme going around on Facebook. It’s meant to challenge church teaching that requires us to change our behavior.┬áIt reads that “Religion says God will love us if we change. The Gospel says God’s love will change us.” I have to say at the outset, I hate memes. I’ve probably mentioned that […]

God Talk – A Child Shall Lead Them…

When I set about organizing myself to begin writing here instead of Facebook this weekend, I anticipated writing in the Revelations and God in the Public Square categories here. Those have been the areas of growing pressure to write, and silly as I sometimes am, I figured I would dive right into those without a […]

God Talk – Reflection

For the first time in many years, I am sitting here up late on a Saturday night realizing I don’t have to get up extra early tomorrow. I have no responsibility in the morning except walking into church in time for my son to get to Sunday School. I might even sit in on Sunday […]
