Prepping for the Huckabee Show A funny, blessed day: yesterday morning, after a little online banking and email correspondence for the farm, I surfed Facebook a little, pondered a few bold points to make with Governor Huckabee on the show that night, and I registered some little micro-chunk of pepper or sesame seed (it couldn’t..

The Director of MOO (Ministry of Outcomes) Congressional Testimony Opening Statement (Sometime in the not too distant future) Members of Congress thank you for allowing me this time to address what has become an embarrassing reality for the 15,000 federal employees who have given their lives to MOO. As you know, Congress established MOO, the..
“It’s not the same when we do it” On modern American race relations, I have come to realize I have been too innocent, linear and naïve. I always thought it was a straightforward reality: never judge an individual and certainly never discriminate against an individual based on their broader associations – race, religion, ethnic group,..
Easter, Roundabout In a few weeks, Lord willing, my wife and I will take a first class vacation across the country in celebration of being married thirty years. I look forward to this, inordinately, in much the same way I looked forward to school starting in the fifth grade, and the yearly ritual of new..
The Content of Our Character? I find this startling: polite company, these days, apparently allows you to make sweeping, racist commentary about white men over fifty.

A multitude of counselors Unable to sleep, in the wee hours this morning, a Facebook red square blinked across the room at me: An old friend and former employee was concerned about a YouTube video he had been trying to process. Issues of history and family and salvation were at stake, so I hit the..
In which I claim John Piper is too stupid, or evil, to be a man of God.. When you’re trying to divide and conquer, foment racial tension, and thereby shore up a voting block anxious for more goodies, it never hurts to have a reformed mega-pulpit like John Piper’s on your side. But it still..
The Occupying Church and the Dying Church Life is too short for things that don’t work, and that includes your church fellowship and your theology. I tried to identify two broad divisions of the faith yesterday, and why we really shouldn’t have to choose between the two, even though, in practice, our choices are limited. ..
