Every once in a while, a topic pops up that I immediately shy away from. It’s not that I don’t have an opinion because I do. Instead, I would call it wisdom by attempting to choose my battles. Some topics have easy answers, while others tend to be circular. We can argue, debate, and discuss our stances but inevitably circle all the way around to the beginning without ever finding a place of peaceful agreement. Then why have I chosen... Read more

Why do people raise their hands in church? I mean seriously. Does God not understand that we can worship in our seats? I’m tired. My arms hurt. Did I shave my armpits? Did I put on an appropriate amount of deodorant? If raising your hands is expected… isn’t that a form of man-made religion? Which means I don’t have to lift my arms. Why should I lift my hands into the air in church? Are you telling me God doesn’t... Read more

“The Day of Salvation is our Independence Day.” What does that even mean?  A bit on the nose, is it not? Clickbait? Am I trying to sucker you in with a relevant topic? The truthful answer is yes.

Disaster, conflict, and a deep-seated need for rescue from life’s circumstances. There comes the point when... Read more

All of us are familiar with the upcoming holiday Father’s Day. A day when we celebrate a masculine role model. Often, the role is filled by a paternal figure. Fathers, grandfathers, uncles, and brothers have traditionally held the position. For some of us, women have stepped up and stepped into the vacant roles in many children’s lives. But we would be remiss if we didn’t look at the ultimate depiction of fatherhood.  Our heavenly Father. So carefully set the daddy-sized... Read more

What does that even mean? Am I cheating on God? Are we skipping our spiritual leg day? Or did we turn the holy cheat meal into a cheat day? Did we give a flirty wink to the waitress when we were in a relationship? Confused yet? Don’t worry because I am your pilot through the insanity.  Okay, worry a little bit. Today we will look at 3 metaphors with parallels in our Christian walk. Are We Being Faithful? Everyone remembers... Read more
