Welcome to my new blog site!

Here it is, the new Love is an Orientation Blog! Before I say anything else, I have to thank Adam McLane because he designed 100% of this new site! Not only that, but he has taken the time to try and teach an inept student of websites how to use this new and exciting (yes, confusing) technology. I could not have asked for a better friend. Adam:

Thanks, and I love you very much.

If you’re new to my blog, here are some of the most viewed posts from my last site.

1. Why God Doesn’t Answer Prayers

2. Hard Lessons of Forgiveness 

3. Political Temptations

4. Most Humbling Review of Love is an Orientation

5. Validation vs. Affirmation 

6. The Culture War

7. Gays in the Military

8. God Lost in Sexuality

9. Strange Last 48 Hours

10. The three YouTube videos to the right as well.

I hope you enjoy the new look and accessibility (including the Live Chats, dates will be finalized soon), and I look forward to engaging! I will be starting my new posts next week, as this weekend I will be preaching all 3 services at Newsong Church in Irvine, CA. So if you’re is So Cal, stop and by and I’d love to meet.

Much love.
