I love the discussion. I asked below what we do as a church when it comes to things like radical Islam. Now to the greater question. Is our goal as the church to be mainstream, to be the ‘winners’ in the culture war? Or are we to be the Christian diaspora, that is the ‘losers’ […]
Since the post below about our President seemed to strike such a chord, are there any answers to the crisis in the Mid-East? What do we as Christians do? How does the Church deal with radical Islam? Beyond the political process, are there any answers? Answers that won’t do: Liberals: “Let’s drop butter, not bombs!”Conservatives: […]
The Continental in Denver had a special showing of the original Matrix on its giant screen last Wednesday. I can’t believe we’ve been watching it on the itty bitty screen all of these years. Other than a couple of scenes that were stolen, the experience was old school magic.

Mel Gibson is one of my heroes. My wife and I had just finished watching We Were Soldiers just days before he dropped his DUI bomb. I have followed his spiritual journey from Lethal Weapon through Signs and, of course, to the Passion. Bad timing? Couldn’t be worse. While Israel gets bombed by Hezbullah, Mel […]
“You are special, special, everyone is special, everyone in his or her own way.” My girls were watching Barney yesterday morning, and the ‘special’ song came on. Then I heard Barney explain “You are the only you in the whole wide world.” Barney is just a kids show I know–but he reflects the culture’s emphasis […]
