The Call to Worship

I worship 24/7, 365 days a year (I can even outperform fitness centers that claim to be open all day every day). This includes holidays. Even the minor ones like Waffle Day, Winnie the Pooh Day or even National Hug Your Cat Day (it’s not so fun for my cat, but it’s great for me). […]

Life is Short, So Wait.

Nickelback taught us to “live like you’ll never live it twice” and Alphaville gave us the perennial takeaway that we might as well hope to “die young” or at the very least, “let us live forever.” I wanna be forever young became more than your typical go to song of the night before the bars […]

Its first debut comes in a more illusive form: ‘what do you want to be?’ Fast forward […]

And when you have turned again, strengthen your brothers.” Luke 22: 31-46 If the world truly knew what lurked outside, every alert would be made to dispatch patrol […]

Me through Him

I remember a moment of internal panic sometime in my undergraduate years. Outside of going to my numerous English classes, cranking out literary papers after the other, working out and maybe watching re-runs of old sitcoms, I began to live, eat and breathe through my church community. Everything I did seemed to revolve around the […]
