We Are All In Ministry Now

I recently talked (ranted) a little bit while recording on my iPhone on my commute home. I didn’t expect anyone to hear it except maybe my friend Jason. The rant was all about the Table and one particular thing that I wish more people understood about what the Table does and what it means to […]

Christians: All Your Needs Are Already Satisfied

This one’s for the Christian theologians in the audience. If you’re not a Christian, I don’t at all expect you to agree with this. Consider, agree or disagree, and enjoy either way.

A Blessing for Caleb

Last Friday Caleb turned one year old. I am so proud of my boy. I love watching him grow, I love getting to know him, I love seeing his personality develop and start to show, and I even love all the difficult lessons fatherhood is teaching me right now. Well, I usually love those. Especially […]
