I’ll just wear my glasses, then

There is good reason to oppose the syrupy, squishy, evangellyfishy, Jesus-is-my-boyfriend treacle that we see around us, but we need to follow scripture rather than reacting against the prevailing error. There is a certain aspect of American reformed and Calvinist culture that operates as if our bodies only exist to take our brains to and from church. I’d be lying if I said that I haven’t been influenced in some way by this. We are Christians, not Vulcans. Christianity is incarnational. Both of these ditches have latent Gnostic assumptions and both of them are inconsistent with the Incarnation. If you think you can do theology without it erupting into doxology, your theology is wrong. Period. I don’t care how many fat books with small type you’ve read.

A brief review of The Best Christmas Pageant Ever by Barbara Robinson

This was a read-aloud book to my daughter, which I hope will become a yearly tradition.  I cannot recommend this book highly enough.  The book isn’t just a story about a Christmas pageant; it’s the gospel lived out.  Jesus Christ came into this world to save sinners.   The Herdmans were the worst kids in […]

A Thanksgiving lesson

Janelle and I were up before just about everybody else this morning.  As I sitting on the steps that go down from the kitchen to the den and playing with Janelle, she spied several boxes of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese. “I want macaroni and cheese, Daddy,” she said. Kraft Macaroni and Cheese for breakfast?  On […]

I done wrote me a hymn

It’s interesting how God works things together some times. If any of the following recent events did not happen to me, I probably would not have ended up writing a hymn. 1.) I recently purchased the Academic/Theological edition of Finale 2009, a music notation program from Make Music, Inc., which I wouldn’t have done unless […]

Church membership and the revolutionary mind

Just thinking out loud, which is part of the purpose of my blog.  I’ve had some stuff percolating around in my mind after listening to the 2004 Credenda/Agenda History Conference about Revolution and Modernity.  I had also recently finished Angels in the Architecture by Doug Jones and Doug Wilson. When people choose to leave the […]

It’s been a long time

We’ve been busy buying a house, moving, and unpacking for the last few months.  We are now homeowners in Fuquay-Varina, NC.  We have a basement, which is very rare for NC and very exciting.  Hopefully we won’t be moving again for a very long time.  I don’t particularly enjoy it.  Thankfully, many wonderful people from […]
