A quality church sign.” Then, on the real advertisement inside, it said: “This is the sign that reached the family and brought […]
I made a potentially time-consuming discovery the other day: TED.com. It’s pretty much one big happy convergence of brilliance. The ecclesiolgy pointed at in the video below makes it one of my favorites. Go to the site and enjoy. In the meantime, I’ll be trying to figure out how to get my hands on a […]

As someone who has been exposed to differing denominations (non-, Baptist, Lutheran, some 2nd-order Presbyterianism), I would like to burst the bubble of those who are lifelong adherents to a particular denomination. It is common across denominational boundaries that: No one sits on the front row. Coffee flows like milk and honey. Food and pot-luck […]
Chances are there won’t be any new posts until the Monday after Thanksgiving. I’ll be busy visiting families, getting ready for our monthly Sunday night service, taking vacation, blah blah blah. If I do post, just consider it a gift.
