Brian McLaren and Ramadan – What’s Really Going On Here?

(This is an OLD one.  I didn’t realize I had this one laying around in the “Draft” bin.  Oh well.  It’s a  rant about Brian McLaren, so that’s always in season even if the subject material is about four years … Continue reading

Being a Christian Centrist in a Politically Polarized World

Once upon a time I was naive enough to think that “the best candidate” wins in an election. I’m not kidding.  I was so sold-out to the notion that every vote counted and that the political system could help solve … Continue reading

More Proof Mitt’s Heart is With His Money, Not His Brothers & Sisters

I’ve said it before. I’ll say it again. Mitt Romney is NOT a follower of the one Lord, the only Son of God, God in human form, Jesus Christ.  Mitt worships at a place that may “include” the name of … Continue reading

The Occupy Movement: What Happens When Christians Lose Their Voice

What the “Occupy” movement captures is not so much a clear sense of what it “wants” as a clear sense about that which many in America now wrestle… A growing sea of economic disparity that exists between “ultra-haves-in-perpetuity” and the … Continue reading

I Must be Dreaming

I’m a pretty simple guy.  Once I find something that works for me I rarely deviate from the plan.  Take our cars, for example.  It took me years to realize that all the Fords, Chevys, and Dodges we were buying … Continue reading
