Who am I?

Most of us answer with, “I am what I do.” We shouldn’t.

My wife and I are partners

And it’s preposterous for us to think God’s dissatisfied with this way of life.

From libraries to launching pads

Today’s seminary students can’t commit their time and lives to an educational institution. That’s going to require a shift in assumptions about theological education.

Why the world needs ‘Glee’

If the church wants to transform culture by offering a platform, theology and worldview for people to live into, then it can learn critical lessons from Fox TV.

Churches this Sunday will give out a rose and clap for the oldest mother in the sanctuary. They will sing songs about family and pay no attention to the females who haven’t birthed a baby. They will preach children’s sermons that center on obedience and adult sermons that challenge everyone to call home. This Sunday, Christians across America will be challenged to honor their father and mother.
