Labels and Lies

July 31, 2014

I have asked a few of my friends to write posts on the labels Christians use. This post is by Peter Horne. Confession: I like to use labels. Labels break the world down into bite sized chunks. If you’re from a particular state, or city, I feel like I know certain things about you. If […]

What Label Would Jesus Choose?

July 30, 2014

I never got into the WWJD craze a few years ago. I never had a bracelet or a t-shirt.

July 5, 2014

The Lego Movie I cannot recall the last time a major Hollywood studio put out a movie this funny and original. The Lego Movie is visually stunning, meaningful, and a great time. The film invites you into the creative world of Legos (Transformers take notes) and makes you feel like a kid again. It has […]
