You Are Here

by on November 17, 2017

I moved recently. Into a house! Not a fourplex, not a duplex, a house. With zero shared walls. I can’t hear the neighbors sneeze, fight or makeup afterward. I have my own yards, both front, and back. I can even have pets there if I ever plan on being home long enough to care for them well. I will not likely get a pet, is what that means. I moved into this place a month ago. I’ve done the settling in, buying and selling of furniture, figured storage out, but I have to admit that there are a few boxes just sitting in the middle of my living and dining rooms. I mostly know what’s in them but I don’t want to deal with them.

On Preaching

by on July 11, 2017

I’ve been reading books on homiletics when I have time because although I don’t think I’m a bad public speaker, I have some room for growth as a preacher. And that’s fine. As long as my people are being fed and ministered to on any given Sunday, I don’t have to be the best. But I want to be the best. So, I’m learning how to do this better.


Angry At God

by on June 27, 2017

“I don’t know anyone who will read a book about being angry at God,” a family patriarch said.

This is a common response I receive when answering the terrifying question: “So what is your book about?” No one expects to hear a Christian admit to being angry with God, much less write a book about such an ostracizing plight.
