Musings on culture, Christian community, faith and the human condition.

March 18, 2019

He who is alone with his sin is utterly alone.  In spite of corporate worship, times of prayer, fellowship, and even ministry together, many Christians are still left to their loneliness.  Although the Christian fellowship generally shares fellowship as believers and as devout people, the trut...

In my last post, I spoke of the superficialities of our post-modern culture and the breakdown in true community.  Of course, the breakdown of relationship started long before the Industrial Revolution.  It started all the way back in the earliest days of mankind, when we first turned from God...

We are ghosts in the machine.  We inhabit a soft reality.  Call it the way of the world in the wake of modernism – or Post-modernism.

It’s the way we connect with people without really connecting with anyone.  Facebook friends.  I see only that part of you that you want me to see.  Maybe I...

Movies go better with popcorn for some folks.  Apparently.  Why else do they sell the stuff at every movie theater?  But he found movies unpredictable and therefore eating to be a dangerous activity while watching one.  Especially those movies that pull at the heartstrings.  He knew better tha...

A recent staff retreat forced (I am using that word a bit loosely obviously) us to spend some time walking the beach.  We were supposed to be thinking about a new proposal for Sunday School.  I found the shells a bit too distracting.  After picking up a few shells, some whole and some in piece...

Up front, I will simply state that I believe in the whole metanarrative bit – the overarching story that explains our past and present, that anticipates our future, and that undergirds and informs all our best stories.  I believe there is a “big story” that is the story of mankind.  I also bel...

There are several places in the Bible where the choice between life and death is set before people.  It’s there in the Garden of Eden with two trees – the Tree of Life, and the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil that would bring death if its fruit was eaten.  The book of Proverbs sets up w...
