Church Sign Epic Fails, Volume Fourteen

Yes, kids, it’s that time again already. Seems it was only seven days ago when we posted our last batch of weekly church sign epic fails, and here we are again. So let’s get to it: your weekly infusion of bad church signs. (Oh, and if you’ve missed previous posts, links to all are at [Read More…]

PregMANcy, the Interview (Patheos Book Club Q & A)

I spent a few minutes in the hot seat with Patheos editor Deb Arca who asked me quite possibly the most challenging, soul-searching questions of my entire life. And then when the tape recorder broke, we went with these instead. Enjoy. ***** Christian Piatt’s newest book, PregMANcy: A Dad, A LIttle Dude, and a Due [Read More…]

Hating the Invisible Man (Day Seventeen)

We finally made it to the Oregon Coast yesterday. I took some pictures in the redwood forest that I’ll share soon, but this post isn’t about that. We got in before dinner and were happy to learn that we had a hotel room with an ocean view. Not only that, but it actually is right [Read More…]

Preparing a Home (Day Fifteen)

I’ve become a serious blog slacker, at least by my typical standards. My regular discipline is to post daily, but I’ve actually had to make a conscious effort NOT to keep up that pace while on our trip. And believe it or not, the world hasn’t come to an end without a daily post from [Read More…]

Hispters, Hippies and a Moroccan Mothers’ Day (Day Thirteen)

I’m actually kind of surprised and a little bit proud of myself that I didn’t blog over the weekend. I kind of figured after posting about getting off our hectic schedules to reconnect with our bodies, it would be pretty hypocritical if I didn’t at least try to do the same thing. Granted, I did [Read More…]

Church Sign Epic Fails, Volume Thirteen

Yeah, cause polygamy with God is way better than same-sex marriage. [Read more…]

This Is My Body (Day Ten)

There’s something very grounding about spending an entire day walking. Obviously you’re more connected, literally, to the earth, but the connection goes deeper than that. Little, if anything, passes by without notice. With enough time, nothing recedes into the background. You have time to actually notice everything. There’s also something physiologically renewing about walking all [Read More…]

Don’t Think Too Hard; You’ll Kill God (Day Nine)

Amy and I covered Los Angeles on foot today. This morning we walked from Marina Del Rey to the Santa Monica Pier by way of Venice Beach, stopping for coffee on the pier. After lunch we walked over to a street called Abbot Kinney, which has been rated (by whom, I’m not sure) as the [Read More…]

To the Edge of the Earth (Day Eight)

We just passed through Death Valley (insert 23rd Psalm joke here) and we’re about 100 miles from the edge of the world, also known as Los Angeles. As my mind wandered while scanning the dunes and scrub brush, I started thinking back to the stories about my dad when he left home. As soon as [Read More…]

Are Atheists Better People Than Christians? (Day Seven)

I came across a couple of interesting articles today, both of which other folks sent to me. I get a number of things forwarded to me, most of which I don’t get a chance to read thoroughly. But since I’m on vacation, I had all kinds of time to sit, read and simmer on them. [Read More…]
