Living Liberation through Family: Orphan Care
If you’ve been tracking with my blog for long, you know that orphan care through foster care and adoption are near and dear to my heart. My family includes two adopted kids.

Family. What comes to mind when you hear this word and contemplate what it means? For me, as I assume is true with most of my readers, there are multiple layers of meaning. Of course, I first think of my wife and our kids. I then think back and remember growing up with my parents […]
A Disembodied Head? Part 3: Judgement
It is finally time to begin looking at the change in my theology due to an increasingly Christ-centered view of Scripture. I’ll start with one of the first things God started working on in me, but one of the toughest to really defeat: Judgmentalism. The Evangelical environment in which I grew up seemed to think that […]
A Disembodied Head? Part 1

The Power of Introverts
This is an amazing and powerful talk from Susan Cain at TED this year about the power of introverts. She suggests that our current education and work environments have shifted from catered toward introverts to heavily favoring extroverts. She asks for us to provide space for both. This is worth the listen, and consideration for […]
A “Proud Papa” Moment
With the arrival of my fourth child coming tomorrow (Friday), I can’t help but brag a little about my oldest. Last night amid the falling snow I ventured out to shovel the front walk. My daughter, who had been playing in the back yard saw me come out the back door and grab my shovel. […]
