As the world’s top diplomats, military strategists, and political leaders continue to construct a punitive global response to Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, the internet is offering another diplomatic possibility: charm Putin and just ask him to stop.

Christians, COVID, and The Fallacy of Twosideism

Fine, Here is What I Think About the Vaccine

Okay, fine, I’m vaccinated. I’ll admit it. As a writer, there is always a temptation to open with caveats, to carefully identify your location on the contours of the controversy you are about to wade into. You’ve probably done the same in countless conversations. And let me remind you, it’s the holiday season, so there...

The World is Dangerous

Comfort has Cost us Character and Moral Clarity

While we were preoccupied with petty disputes and celebrity headlines, Twitter threads and Facebook drama, we became naive. From C. S. Lewis’s The Screwtape Letters, we are reminded of how a world of comfort lulls us into a loss of moral clarity and how real danger calls us back to conviction and charcter. The world...

How Bread and Games are Robbing us of a Hunger for God

And why the next 12 months are the greater risk.

According to ancient historians, most of the Jewish families sitting on that Galilean hillside listening to Jesus teach would spend every day of their lives on the edge of hunger and starvation. Some days were better than others, but they never escaped hunger for long. By some estimations, as much as 85% of a Galilean’s...

Smite us all. Expose us all. Save us all.

We the people who don't know how to be people.

The Sadducees brought Jesus the most complicated question they could craft against him and his talk of resurrection. They imagined a family of seven sons in which each died passing along their wife to the next brother. They asked Jesus, “In this coming resurrection, whose wife will she be?” Jesus’s answer was simple, “You are...

Leadership Savvy Doesn’t Make a Pastor

Published by The Gospel Coalition

I’m grateful to the team at The Gospel Coalition for publishing some of my thoughts on leadership and the identity of the pastor. I never liked the title “pastor.” My plan was to practice law and pursue politics. I was fascinated with leadership, and all those career tests told me I had a knack for...

C.S. Lewis on Times of Fear

And A Much Needed Psalm

As a pastor responsible for a congregation of believers, it’s been a tough week. There are hard decisions to be made and challenges to serving those who are most in need. It has been shared widely, but these words from C. S. Lewis have been a wise reminder of how Christians live not just in...

The Essential Masculine Virtue

Finding The Strength Between Aggression and Disengagement

Previous Post in This Series: The Two Ditches of Toxic Masculinity: Noah and The True Complexity of What is Wrong With Men The Bible warns of man’s tendency to over-identify with his impulses of aggression and passivity, a topic I’ve explored at length in a previous article. But the Bible is also careful not to...

Christ Was Born Into A World Divided

Politics, Power, and the Nativity

This articles was taken from my Christmas Eve message to Bent Oak Church: December 24, 2019. My kids have a little wooden nativity set that each year we assemble beneath our Christmas tree. This time of year, you see them everywhere—plastic ones illuminated in front yards, wooden ones set up in front of McDonald’s, some...

The Two Ditches of Toxic Masculinity

Noah and The True Complexity of What is Wrong With Men

Previous Post in This Series: A Good (Definition of) Man Is Hard to Find: How We Define Manhood and Masculinity I’m aware; toxic masculinity is a phrase of extreme controversy. Wrapped up in the phrase are hotly debated ideologies, fueled by very different perspectives on what a man is and should be. At the center...

  • It is a good year for our apple trees and this girl who loves to eat them.
  • Grateful for the chance to be on set with the 700 club. The video will play throughout the day and should be online this afternoon.
  • Thirteen years ago Ashley and I got married in this chapel. Last night Charlotte had her first voice recital on the same stage. She was the youngest performer. She sang about how time with God casts fear away. Made this dad very very proud.
  • Next Friday, I'll be talking The 5 Masculine Instincts live on The 700 Club with Andrew Knox. Looking forward to it.
  • So it begins.
  • Fair Life. You haven’t completed summer in the Ozarks until you’ve been to the Ozark Empire Fair.
  • Great day sailing.
  • New strings, new neck adjustments, and same old mediocre talent… my kids are still just young enough to think I’m good and my 90’s country is cool.
  • We came, we ate, we lost. #rallyhat
