New JSS Post + Podcasts + Notes on Carlin + Cornerstone

I have a new post at Jesus Shaped Spirituality called “Jesus Says Cross the Line.” I have all the stuff with me for a podcast, but it’s hard to do podcast production when you are on the road. I’m sorry to not get something out this week, and I’ll do my best, but this is […]

Sabbatical Journal: Baseball Week

It’s Thursday of “Baseball Week,” and I’m in a library getting some of my Cornerstone talks polished off before heading for central Ohio to meet my daughter and son-in-law. Sabbatical is certainly rushing by. Yesterday’s day game gave me a really nice case of sunburned knees. Knees. It’s so much like my life to get […]

Thank You George Carlin

Done. Thanks. Wikipedia has a very complete Carlin entry. Comedians and those who knew the man discuss Carlin’s life and contribution. When I heard that George Carlin had died, one of the first thoughts I had was how he had, in his own way, lived a life devoted to the “word,” i.e. the comedic word, […]

Pray at the Pump: A Meditation on Jesus and Economic Discipleship

Here’s the current post at my new blog, and an example of what you will be reading there in the future. Several days ago, I posted an invitation to discuss Jesus and Gas Prices on this blog. It’s a topic that, to a large extent, will reveal how much we really can engage our imagination […]

Jesus Shaped Update: How does the New Testament Speak of the Church?

The latest post at Jesus Shaped Spirituality is a basic discussion of how the New Testament speaks of the church. Remember that most of my writing- aside from podcasts, book reviews and a few odds and ends- will be moving to Jesus Shaped Spirituality. The current address is www.jesusshaped.wordpress.com, but JesusShaped.com will be available soon. […]

Sabbatical Journal: Wheaton and RZIM

I’m on the campus of Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois at the Ravi Zacharias Summer Institute. Outstanding conference. I am especially enjoying the teaching of Dr. Chris Mitchell doing an overview of the entire Bible. Our sessions have all been in the massive Billy Graham Center. Part of this building is a Graham Museum, which […]

iMonk 101: Big Money for a Little Piece of Paper (Dedicated to “Dr.” Johnny Hunt)

Since new SBC President “Dr.” Johnny Hunt is having a bit of an academic credentials crisis, I thought it would be a good time for me to say I understand the feeling that drives us to do things like order a Ph.d from the back of a comic book. So here’s an essay where I […]
