Some Ramblings on Our Fairly Normal Shared Christian Experience

Some Ramblings on Our Fairly Normal Shared Christian Experience

I have this theory that as a 20-30 something evangelical with a fairly normal upbringing in a fairly nominal Christian home, having gone to a fairly normal evangelical college, and lived life thus far with fairly normal experiences by and large, I share a brand of faith that could be transferred to other 20-30 somethings with very minor modifications required. In other words, I suspect that most people share the beliefs, doubts, questions, passions, fears, and concerns that I have…

Kids without Filters and the Genesis Theory

Kids without Filters and the Genesis Theory

This is a follow-up post to the Personality Theory post I wrote yesterday. We are presently in the Bahamas, serving Jesus under the hot, hot sun; daily obligated to swim in the turquoise waters and walk the majestic beaches in order to draw closer to our Lord.

When My Son Becomes Me: Stubborn Vulnerability

When My Son Becomes Me: Stubborn Vulnerability

We’ve got two kids and they’re both pretty ridiculous. Cameron is 3 – and will be 4 in June. Graham is 1 and will be 2 in August. I put them to bed about half an hour ago and Graham is still chatting away from his crib, interrupted every few minutes by his big brother across the room yelling in frustration, “Go to sleep!!!” (being a big brother that big brothers are), only to have Graham burst out giggling –…
