A Prayer By Clement of Rome

February 27, 2014

May he who created everything keep the number of his chosen people, throughout the world, up to the strength he fixed for them through his dear Child, Jesus Christ. Through him he called us from darkness to light, from ignorance to knowledge of the glory of his name. We have confidence in you: you were […]

The Greatest Threat to the Church

February 24, 2014

And when he got into the boat, his disciples followed him. And behold, there arose a great storm on the sea, so that the boat was being swamped by the waves; but he was asleep. And they went and woke him, saying, “Save us, Lord; we are perishing.” And he said to them, “Why are […]

A Prayer By Origen

February 20, 2014

The Lord grant that we may believe in our hearts, declare with our mouths and prove by our deeds that his covenant with us has been sealed in our flesh. May men see that what we do is good and praise our Father in heaven for it, through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom glory […]

Four Thoughts on Entertainment

February 18, 2014

Entertainment is big business. We spend billions of dollars each year on entertainment. The Lego Movie made 69 million dollars in one weekend alone.

A Prayer By Soren Kierkegaard

Father in Heaven! Our thought is turned toward Thee; again it seeks Thee at this hour, not with the unsteady step of a lost traveler but with the sure flight of a bird homeward bound. Grant then that our confidence in Thee be not a fugitive thought, a momentary leap, a mistaken appeasement of the […]

Four Things We Need to Understand About Evangelism

February 11, 2014

I used to hear a lot of talk about evangelism, but not so much anymore. I hear a lot of people talking about what it is to be missional, but not much about evangelism. Maybe there are people talking about evangelism, but I don’t know them. I still hear lots of people talking about reaching […]

The Lego Movie

The Lego Movie is one of the most funny and entertaining movies to come out in a long time. It is completely fresh and original. It is a film like you have never seen before. The film stays true to the spirit of Legos. The characters and action all move according to how Legos are […]

What About the Church? Donald Miller started a firestorm this week when he posted to his blog that he does not regularly attend church services. I agreed with some of Miller’s critiques concerning the church, but I found his answers to these problems to be unhelpful. Many people responded to Miller and some of these posts had much to […]

Why Facebook is Hurting Christianity

February 4, 2014

I love Facebook. I have been on Facebook for eight years now. I first created an account in 2006, and I have used it for various purposes. It is great for keeping up with friends, whom I never get to see. I interact with people I went to high school with, and I haven’t seen […]
