As someone who speaks for a living, I rarely find myself at a loss for words. The older I get, however, the more I realize the value in asking questions and listening to the thoughts of others. To better understand I put out a few, what I call “Thinking Differently” articles, last year. These articles are the result of interviews with people that have experienced the subject matter. To date, we have covered single Christians, ...

Social media has fundamentally changed the way we interact, specifically we feel we must respond to or have an opinion on everything. To make matters worse, these responses are often met with responses of their own. Respond too quickly and you are guilty of someone trying to score “internet points”, respond too slowly and you are charged with not acting quick enough, respond with nothing and you are labeled as someone who call...

It is amazing how fast change occurs. Over the course of a week we watched as our plans quickly eroded away in favor of social distancing. This sudden shift in the way we live our lives due to the Coronavirus is, in many ways, a path that has been walked before.

The children of Israel found themselves home one day and in Babylonian exile the next (2 K...

How often do you read or listen to content that you know you will disagree with? You may wonder why I would ask such a question, but this practice of consuming content you know you will disagree with is a practice I’ve found to be helpful in many ways:

- It helps me to better understand “the other side”.

- It helps me to better understand and articulate my own positions and ideas.

- It provides perspectives or scenarios I hadn’t...

For the most part, the way Christians have responded to COVID-19 has been amazing. The attitude for many has revolved around what they can do to love their neighbor through this time of difficulty.

On the other hand, there are those that have made this issue one of faith over fear, and while I'm sure there are Christians afraid of what may happen, this does not mean that all those who remain home from worship/class are guilty o...

We’ve done the book of Genesis a terrible disservice. In the minds of many Genesis is nothing more than the place we go to for Christian evidences or a greatest-hits collection of Bible characters like Abraham and Moses.

This is a travesty because Genesis is a theologically rich text that not only sets us off on our biblical journey, but also serves as a source of understanding for who we are, who God is, who He wants us to be...

Legendary artist and controversial figure Kanye West released his highly anticipated gospel album Jesus is King this past week and it has been the subject of conversation and scrutiny ever since. When something hits the culture this hard there is inevitably something Christians can learn from it, this is especially true regarding Jesus is King.

Christians, We Need to Set a Better Example

On the song “Hands On”, Kanye raps about...

The ability to have civil discourse left our society long ago. We malign the presence of “safe spaces” and boo when certain speakers are deplatformed either online, in the real world, or both.

Ironically, many who cry over the fall of our culture’s ability to have discourse are the very same who eliminate discourse in the churches of Christ.

Christianity has long been a religion of logic and reason. The biblical narrative is ful...

The family of God, like any other family, is one that comes with its share of struggles. In the church, Jesus brings together young and old, male and female, rich and poor, black and white, and unites them in the spiritual foundation of the cross. Sometimes though some of the groups get lost in the shuffle. 

A few months ago we read from some Christians who are single about how they feel they are treated in the church. Today, w...

It was all so very businesslike that one watched it fascinated. It was pork-making by machinery, pork-making by applied mathematics. And yet somehow the most matter-of-fact person could not help thinking of the hogs; they were so innocent; they came so very trustingly; and they were so very human in their protests - and so perfectly within their rights! They had done nothing to deserve it; and it was adding insult to injury,...
