April 4, 2021 The Resurrection of George Floyd: On the Fullness of the Incarnation of Jesus Christ *The Resurrection of Jesus Christ is the most pivotal moment in the history of the cosmos…not because it is static and unchanging…but because it never stops.  The brilliance of the resurrection beckons to think about all sorts of resurrections.  Jesus said that he would always be incarnate in the least of these amongst us.  I can think of few more helpless senseless atrocious… Read more

Rape Was/Is Never a Joke. (T/W A Good Friday Recollection)   For many years, I haven’t thought about that morning.  I guess one tends to block things like that out.  However, nightmares always seem to find their way back to the surface.   The other night, I was talking to the kids about boundaries.  I didn’t grow up in a world where we ever talked about such things.  I certainly would’ve been better off if I had.   As the… Read more

    “Death is Just a Part of Life.”  WTF?     In the midst of death, people really know how to speak dumbassticity.  Who gives a shit about “thoughts and prayers” when someone’s child has been murdered?  When has “they’re in a better place” ever helped the widow of a suicide victim?  What does “it was just there time” have to offer to the survivor of a fatal car accident?  Where is the “they lived a great life” when… Read more

March 22, 2021     The Woman Clothed in Darkness   Sleep eluded me. I’d sat for hours…ever closer to the coldness of the window…looking out into the density of the mountains. Stars were everywhere.  I guess they helped my search…although I didn’t really know what I was looking for…a search for the unsearchable perhaps.  Just when I thought that all hope was lost…I saw a woman clothed in darkness…slowly she crept down from the mountain.  I couldn’t take my eyes off… Read more

  Context as Salvation: Envisioning Darkness as Light   The End Is Near.   “Fire in the Sky.” “Glaciers Melt.” “Oxygen Depleted.” “Endless Drought.” “Lawlessness.” “Global Suffering.” “Water Evaporates.” “Coast Obliterated.” “Fear Unleashed.”   The End Is Here.   Burning light descended.   The ozone was gone. Pollution and multiple nuclear catastrophes had destroyed it.  Fire was killing everything that was left.  Light was now deadly.  To see was to go blind.  To breathe was to suffocate.  To feel was to… Read more

School Resource Officers: The Bullies in Blue “Few greater dangers face our children today than the police we’re putting in their schools…”   “I’m here to keep you safe…”   Strange smells started coming out of the vents.  Lights began to flash.  Everyone ran to the exits.  Sounds bombarded our ears.  The evacuation was anything but orderly.  Nobody could breath.  Before the day was out, dozens of students received emergency treatment…some of them (especially those with compromised lungs/immune systems in… Read more

    Racist Children Force Child to Drink Urine / Racist Employees Force Colleague to Drink Urine In response to: ‘This Is Beyond Bullying’: Justice Sought For Plano ISD Boy Allegedly Abused By Haggard Middle School Students This is the way the world ends.   You wake up. Tears stream down your face. You know it’s difficult enough to exist as a black man without all of this other bullshit.  You don’t want to go to work…but you know that you have… Read more

March 3, 2021   When a Trailer Park Kid Freezes to Death.   *His funeral was just a few days  ago…   Growing up, I was taught to see trailer parks as the epicenter of trash.  While I don’t remember exactly who taught me such a thing, I know that I wasn’t born with such an idea…therefore…I was taught…right?  I’m sure that I’m not the only one who grew up in such a way…looking down on those who we assume… Read more

February 16, 2021   Eschatology: a Forgotten Theology for Our Perilous Time   Eschatology (the study of the end) still matters.   Matthew 16: 1-3   “The religious leaders wanted a sign.  Jesus answered them, “When it is evening, you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is blue.’  And in the morning, ‘It will be stormy today, for the sky is black and threatening.’ You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you fail to interpret the… Read more

  February 12, 2021 Missions = Disgusting   “How many souls of savages have you won today?”   “If you love Jesus…more than anything else…you’ll be more than willing to get your penis chopped off in the jungle so that others might know Christ…”   “Missions is not about the people that you’re evangelizing…it is about God’s greater glory.”   “You should never let your concern for your own body come between you and someone coming to know Jesus.”  … Read more
