The Heart of All Anxiety: Fear of Loss

I got emails from my mom and uncle about Nana, my last living grandparent. The news isn’t great. She’s struggled with dementia for some years now and hasn’t recognized me the last several times I’ve seen her. But while her mind has been betraying her for a while, it’s her health now that seems to [Read More...]

More Sh*t Emergent Christians Say

My friend Travis Mamone posted a follow up video to his first, Shit Emergent Christians Say. Check out his new video below, and you can also keep up with him as co-host of the Something Beautiful Podcast HERE. [Read more...]

If It’s Armageddon, Do I Have To Do My Homework?

My son, Mattias, was in a religious school in town for a while for preschool. We knew going in that their beliefs did not align in a lot of ways with ours, but there are limited options in a town the size of Pueblo. I’ll admit it was pretty funny the day we got a [Read More...]

More Church Sign Epic Fails

obamaosamabrothers

The bad church signs were quite a hit last week, so I thought I’d share some more of my favorites. And if you didn’t see the first batch of bad signs, check them out here. I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit. Anyone who can guess what part of the [Read More...]

John Piper Hates on Gays via Twitter

It’s bad enough when Christians sit silently by while LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer) folks are marginalized, ridiculed, abused, raped or even killed for who they are. It’s another when Christians actively engage in the exclusion of people based on their identity or orientation. And then there’s John Piper. It seems Piper has [Read More...]

Evangelical 2.0: The Deception of Driscoll’s Acts 29 Network

I’ve written quite a bit about churches like Mark Driscoll’s Mars Hill and the concerns I have about a lack of accountability, given that they’re not part of a denomination or other larger body of oversight. Churches led my ministers like Driscoll and John Piper seem to be independent, yet pressing a surprisingly consistent agenda [Read More...]

Mules, Sex and Rick Santorum

Mule SNout

As a blogger, I could not ask for a more interesting presidential candidate than Rick Santorum. Not only does he exhibit latent ambitions to preach from the pulpit; he also LOVES to talk about sex. While most candidates will talk around matters of sex and sexuality, Rick goes right for it. He takes on sexuality [Read More...]

Sh*t Emergent Christians Say

My friend, Travis Mamone, did a short video about all the stuff emergent Christians are prone to pop off about. Yeah, he pretty much nails me in it. Check out Travis’ blog at the link above on his name, and, dig the Something Beautiful Podcast where he’s a co-host. [Read more...]

Dust In the Wind: A Lenten Tribute (Fashion FAIL)

A ruffled-tuxedo, big-fro, cho-mo, super-bangs reminder of what Ash Wednesday is all about. I actually did this song with Michael Collins, an old friend of mine, at a high school talent show, but there’s NO WAY we were this awesome. And by awesome, I mean reminiscent of a troupe of mutant circus freaks. [Read more...]

My Boy’s Legacy of Obsessive Behavior

I write about Mattias a lot. There’s plenty of material there. It’s become particularly interesting since we’ve discovered in the past year that he has Asperger Syndrome. We’ve also realized, though non-medically, that I most likely have many or all of the same traits. And really, if you look back through the guys in my [Read More...]
