I thought about this question the other day and have been chewing on it since. It would seem obvious, but maybe it isn’t? I’m not talking politics here. (Everybody has sucked all the fun out of talking politics lately.) I’m asking the question should Believers in Jesus care one way or another if the President … More Should the Church Want a Godly President?
There’s plenty to argue about in this election. And there’s part of me that loves arguing and a part of me that hates it.

But with 45,000 churches in America, it’s time to write a letter or send a telegraph to your Pastor to go down to … More Top 10 Reasons Your Church Should Start Snake-Handling
Well I’m certainly not on the cutting edge here. I’ve tried to do more listening than reacting lately (and just trying to keep my kids alive which is harder than the 2 full-time jobs I normally work.) But I’m going to make a case for why churches need to start opening up. I know many … More The Case for Why (Most) Churches Should Open
So the stimulus check just hit my bank account, and man does it feel weird to be a thousandaire. Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m still net-negative when you count my debts, but man, do I feel rich in this moment. I probably fit right into the middle of American families. (i.e. I’m not wealthy … More Read This Before Spending Your Stimulus Check
Chapter 1 – Gold “Get up Mary, we have to go.” Joseph calmly, but seriously, exclaimed as he started rolling up supplies in an old canvas cloth. “What’s going on?” I said still half-asleep. “I had another dream. We need to get out of here. Fast. Pack whatever you and Jesus need, but we need … More Gold, Frankincense & Myrrh: A Short Story
Let me start out with what I mean by “supporting” President Trump. I don’t like politicians in general.
