So Anthony weighs in, he’s a reluctant Bushie! It’s nice to hear your thoughts, I think you are probably right about both of the candidates. It’s sort of weird for me, I’m not sure how to think these days because my political ideology and theology are both on the table. I believe there is a [Read More...]


You should look at this link posted by N8: http://www.sojo.net/action/alerts/confessing_christ.pdf Interesting advertisement – it’s complete spin, though. Falwell is patently not mainstream, even for conservative Christians. One of the things that really cranks me about both sides of any issue with the ‘us’ v. ‘them’ mentality is that we always exploit the worst in each [Read More...]

Peace, Love, and Basketball

Hey Everyone! For those of you in Kansas City, you’ve probably heard about the new downtown arena. They are deciding today what architecture firm they will go with to design and build this thing. I’m hoping for the group led by Brad Schrock, he goes to our parent church – Heartland Community. Go check out [Read More...]

Bastard Child

I read some Thomas Oden the other day and he totally read my mail. He was trying to describe a group of Evangelical Christians and I thought his insight was worth sharing. All of this is a very loose paraphrase, so don’t hold Oden responsible for my bull-crap! For the most part I’m joking in [Read More...]

almost ready words and music by tim suttle verse one the air was blue, my heart was lead came to love and fought instead and turning circles in the room the smell of salt and your perfume chorus and we were flying, and we were almost ready we were climbing out on a limb we [Read More...]


In the middle of the great snowstorm that wasn’t last week, I was reminded how much we like to know what’s coming before it gets here. As a sports fan I’ve been disturbed to hear that local sportscasts are giving way to weather forecasts. These are the new heroes of the ten o’clock hour and [Read More...]


It’s become a parlance of our time, the immortal words of the great Emerson “the mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation.” There is some dark place in the heart of every person where we decide to live or not to live. There resides within each of our souls a beautiful novel that we [Read More...]


In the 1930’s the American motion picture industry adopted the Motion Picture Production Code. In so doing, Hollywood itself decided what was acceptable to show in movies instead of having an outsider dictate this for them. One of the areas they restricted was the way that men and women interacted in romantic films – no [Read More...]


There is nothing more difficult for those who seek after God than to endure a period where all spiritual things seem lifeless. In our journey we inevitably find ourselves in long periods of time where the things we believe, the zeal of our past, our experiences of God to that point seem quite dubitable because [Read More...]


If you consider the way your day unfolds, you’ll find a rhythm. Eating breakfast, reading the paper, driving to work, checking email, meetings, phone calls, going to lunch, sundown, bedtime – these things make up the rhythm of our lives and will dictate not only the physical aspects of our day but the spiritual as [Read More...]
