Old Posts

I’ve converted to a new hosting provider, and they don’t support numeric post titles. So if you’ve come here through a web search or saved link, you might end up at the list of postings. To work around that, here is a crosswalk between the numeric post links and...

Trailer Chains – PSA

This isn’t deep, theological, or anything like that. Just something that I’ve observed a lot lately and thought it might be a good idea to send out a PSA. When you hook up a trailer to your vehicle, the chains are supposed cross each other, under the tongue. Eg.,...

Anonymous

It’s Sunday morning, during normal church time. And yet, I sit at home on my computer, writing my thoughts, laying my soul bare for the world to read. A few months ago, my family and I moved to a new town. While the distance to my job is similar,...

Finesse

This morning I was reading a National Geographic article on Mars; at one point they were discussing some of the geographic topology of the planet and how it had changed over time. That got me to thinking about the Creation story in Genesis, where God spoke everything into existence....

Back to the Future

This isn’t going to be a long post, or an overly deep post. I’m honestly not sure how many folks even read what I write, but for people who do stop by occasionally, you may have noticed that there’s a pretty long gap in my posting history. In all...

Eye Drops

Matthew is going to be three this summer. As hard to believe as that is, it’s amazing to look back on the last several years and see how my life has changed along the way. To be very honest, I wasn’t excited when I found out that Christina was...

Social Justice

I’ve thought about the whole “social justice” thing a lot over the last decade, and my views have changed considerably along the way. I know that they’re not fully formulated even at this point, but I’ve learned a lot, and realized a lot, both through reading, and observing, but...
