The Piatts on the Road

piatts on the beach

Next Wednesday, May 2nd, Amy, the kids and I will leave behind us the city, the church and the home we’ve enjoyed for the last eight years. It’s felt like getting ready for another birth, making all of the plans for our move to Portland and everything that comes along with it. And in a [Read More...]

My Most Recent Video Project (Water 2012)

This really has nothing directly to do with theology or family, though its message of resource awareness and conservation certainly aligns with my feelings on environmental stewardship. Anyway, this is a project I worked on recently for an organization in Colorado called Water 2012. Their goal is to engage average citizens in the important movement [Read More...]

On Asperger Syndrome and Broken Hearts

Our son, Mattias, is eight years old. Everyone thinks their kid is special, and in a lot of ways, he’s just a regular kid.

And yes, though the winning streak led by Tebow has been buttressed by a generally [Read More...]

Jesus Needs a Background Check

Free Child Care

As I pulled in to church this morning I saw the sign in this photo across the street in an empty lot. I’m guessing I don’t have to explain why this creeped me out, but just in case… Who offers free child care? Why are they motivated to do this? Are they a cult? Pedophiles? [Read More...]

Sex is Dirty; Save It for Marriage

Three generations of women in my family left the house this morning for a women’s tea at church. My wife, Amy, and a few other women started this monthly tradition a while back at Milagro (the congregation we founded in our house seven years ago) when we realized we had a number of young girls [Read More...]
