“A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up..” It’s been a bone-weary two weeks. I performed Patrick Henry five straight nights last week, and four straight nights this week. We had a county water well inspection this week, several meetings about the farm..

“There be three things which are too wonderful for me, yea, four which I know not: The way of an eagle in the air; the way of a serpent upon a rock; the way of a ship in the midst of the sea; and the way of a man with a maid.” Proverbs 30:18-19 I have..
If your pastor sounds like he’s Taliban, he just might be.. I consider the preaching on the right obscene. Disgusting. Spiritually ugly. An affront to the gospel. He reminds me of General Ripper in Dr. Strangelove, obsessed with “bodily fluids,” except that Reverend Al here appears to have perfected a “crack of the buttocks” version…
Believe it or not, the older I get, the more tender I feel about young and/or weak believers, all full of zeal for God. But I don’t think it’s a good idea to let gross legalisms go uncontested, and when you get in that contest, it usually goes something like this: “This nation needs more..
The poor is hated even of his own neighbour: but the rich hath many friends. — Proverbs 14:20 Want to stay spiritually closer to your kids and grandkids? Start a family business. Money makes for friendship, this I know — for the Bible tells me so. Most folks have a hard time admitting that, or allowing for..
The church is either ashamed of — or too bashful to speak about — real sex. And that’s a real shame. Many believers disagree, but I mean to illustrate by means of scripture, and culture, so follow along. A certain woman I know, someone very dear to my heart, chides her husband about being overly..
Mary and I have been ultra-dedicated to date night once a week, and there’s one part of the journey that almost always sounds something like this: Mary: Where do you want to have dinner? Jim: You pick…
I confess. I find the Doug Phillips story morbidly fascinating. The picture of a home school dad caught at the bedroom window of a young woman not his wife, in the middle of the night, claiming he was delivering her paycheck. My classical education fails me. Is this Greek tragedy, or farce? I find..
I wrote yesterday about someone in my life who is “real,” but it would be a mistake for anyone to think that’s an easy thing to accomplish. We say that so easily, don’t we? “Be real.” “Get real.” “He’s just not the real thing.” ..as though it were natural. As though it were the norm…
Mary and I celebrate 26 years of marriage today, and there has never been another woman to interrupt that matrimony, with the possible exception of Siri — who we both enjoy abusing. We were on our final approach to IKEA Covina this afternoon, the only Southern California establishment selling candles in bulk for keepers of..
