A Disembodied Head? Part 1

Today I want to begin a series on my theological journey. I will not go into great detail here on some of the history of the theological journey, but I want to give enough of the story along the way to show how I’ve come to my current place, and show the Scriptures that helped […]

The Unity of the Body of Christ?

My friend Rob Martin posted this image at his blog (Abnormal Anabaptist). I think that there are reasons why we may disagree within the Body of Christ, but shouldn’t we be able to join together for the sake of advancing the Kingdom? I do think there is a discussion that could be had about whether […]

Messiah College Adds New Sports Option

  Messiah College has recently announced the opening this fall of a new Disc Golf course (think Frisbees). Here is a bit from the announcement: Messiah College, recognizing the diverse appeal of the sport, decided to build its own course on the college’s 471-acre campus. The course, free and open to the public, has a […]

Want a Good Career? Consider Math/Stats!

Yet another ranking of top jobs has highlighted careers in Mathematics and Statistics as among the very best career options. I’m not sure exactly what to make of the ranking, since the graphic they used at the top doesn’t seem to correspond to the piece, and there seems to be a ranking on the top […]

Ted Davis on Theistic Evolution

In the debates on the origins of life, it is easy to argue with each other without understanding each others true positions. In that vein, Dr. Ted Davis, my colleague at Messiah College, offers his take on the tenets of Theistic Evolution as part of a series at the BioLogos Forums‘ site. He will eventually be […]

Congrats to a Messiah Alum

Congrats to Alex Lentz on his chance to fulfill his dream of playing professional baseball. Here is a tidbit from the York Dispatch: The York Revolution became a bit more “political” this week. Of the 42 hopefuls who participated in York’s open tryout on Saturday, 24-year-old Alex Lentz is the only one who earned an […]

An Impressive Word of Encouragement

Thanks to several of my Messiah friends and the Messiah College Facebook page for pointing out this video this morning from Joni and Friends. In the video, Joni Eareckson Tada speaks about the work of the Collaboratory, and how they’ve partnered with her ministry to reach out to people with disabilities around the world. Check it […]

We’ve Got Great Alumni

Here is the latest example of our great alumni in the Department of Information and Mathematical Sciences here at Messiah College. In the controversial rankings of 4th through 8th grade teachers in New York City, class of 2005 alumna Kelly (Toolan) Hudson is listed as the 10th best mathematics teacher in the city. She’s also […]

Advice on Parenting: Let Your Kids Fail

Thought I’d come back from a somewhat extended paternity leave (more on that at some point) with a post about good and bad parenting. Over at the Huffington Post’s parenthood portal, Mickey Goodman asks if we are raising a generation of kids who are essentially helpless. As a professor here at Messiah College (and even […]

I Knew Him Way Back When

I don’t usually turn to CBN or the 700 Club for my news, but they had a nice piece on microfinance  yesterday that featured my college friend Peter Greer and the microfinance organization he founded, HOPE International. We were in an outreach group together back in those days at Messiah College, but I don’t think […]
