To Go To Nicaragua

Kids Playing in Nicaragua God, please send someone else. This is what Moses said to God in Exodus 4:13 when he was asked to lead the people out of Egypt into another land. When I was first approached about Nicaragua back in January 2016 my reaction was similar, and I quickly came up with more…

M25 Mission Camp in Atlanta

There are several entries that have been sitting in my drafts for a while that I've trying to get posted, and this happens to be one of them. M25 Mission Camp is a youth missional organization in Atlanta that works with the homeless in a way I've rarely seen over the years. It wasn't the…

Senseless Act of Poetry

As the Newtown “anniversary” approaches I came back to this poem I wrote on the day of that tragedy. It seems our world is confronted with the realities of these shootings almost every day now. The likes of Newtown, Roseburg, or just this week the San Bernardino shootings, are all too frequent. For most part,…

Five Reasons The Behemoth is Art and Poetry in Theological Prose

The Behemoth Magazine You may not understand The Behemoth’s orthodoxy because you are viewing art and poetry, not a theological exegesis or apologetic argument.I have not been all that excited about any particular faith-based magazine publication in a long time. Even so, I do read many of the most popular ones in some form or…

Christian Musings on Doubt on a Quiet Saturday Morning

While I watched the sun come up over the trees today I started my Saturday with a cup of coffee and the newspaper, i.e. a read through Facebook and Twitter. This is something I haven't done much lately for various reasons, but today I came across this article from @BuzzFeed via @jessmisener who wrote about…

Thoughts on @AUTigerBaseball and Game 17. #WarEagle

Game 17, Auburn vs Coppin State. Jordan-Hare Stadium is always looming large in the background over Plainsman Park. Majestic concrete pillars hibernating until fall with one reprieve in April, A-Day, coming soon. It is always the giant in the room, the most powerful, with the most money, the biggest following, and a stadium that changes…

A Great Journal Introduction by Jim Elliot

I have been writing in some form of journal for the better part of 20-25 years now off and on, sometimes with purpose, sometimes with without any at all. Some things inspire more than others. Lately, thanks to the people over at Bloom with the Day One App, they have inspired my digital journal into…

Learning to Seek First the Kingdom Everywhere

I've been living in this phrase, "seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness," found in various places in scripture, trying to determine it's sway and meaning for me personally. Ever since I wrote this post about my idea of what 2013 would look like, I've been asking myself the question, how... and where? It's…
