Text for the Week: Iron Sharpens Iron

Titus 2:1-14 But you should talk in a way that is consistent with sound teaching. Tell the older men to be sober, dignified, sensible, and healthy in respect to their faith, love, and patience. Likewise, tell the older women to be reverent in their behavior, teaching what is good, rather than being gossips or addicted... Continue Reading →

Peter’s Deconstruction and Restoration

It is time to remember Jesus' death and that means at some point soon most Christians will hear the story of Peter denying Jesus as he stands outside of Jesus' trial (Matthew 26:69-75, Mark 14:66-72, Luke 22:54-62, John 18:15-27). Most people are aware that prior to being arrested Jesus makes a prediction that Peter (like... Continue Reading →

Who Am I?

“The greatest hazard of all, losing one’s self, can occur very quietly in the world, as if it were nothing at all. No other loss can occur so quietly; any other loss - an arm, a leg, five dollars, a wife, etc. - is sure to be noticed.”― Søren Kierkegaard, The Sickness Unto Death: A... Continue Reading →

A Theology of Digital Church

To stream or not to stream that is the question—Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to sufferThe slings and arrows of separated cyberspace,Or to take arms against a sea of isolation,And, by opposing, end it? A Modern Hamlet I had a notion to rewrite the entire soliloquy but I thought readers would get bored. The... Continue Reading →

A Jumbled Mess

This week I read three articles which sparked a tangle of thoughts about both my faith and my relationship to the wider Christian culture. Though I do fit a standard definition of "evangelical" (at least by the National Association of Evangelicals definition), I never feel comfortable using the word to describe myself. My hesitance to... Continue Reading →

What’s in a Name?

Today, after much controversy the Cleveland Indians baseball franchise is officially changing their name to the Cleveland Guardians. I have been a fan of this team since the late '80's and ridden the highs and lows that come with cheering on any Cleveland franchise. While I will admit I am more excited than sad about...

What Are We Saying?

Cringe worthy church signs are all too familiar, the person behind this sign probably did not even give it a second look because obviously "Jesus cares". (If you are looking for good church signs try here.) This sign represents a real problem in Christian circles-- sometimes we simply do not know how to communicate. There... Continue Reading →

Not Many of You Were Wise

“Brothers and sisters, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth.” 1 Corinthians 1:26 The phrase “not many of you were wise” has stuck with me the last few days as I continue to hear...
