Which Road Are You On? You Should Spend Some Time On “The Road to Edmond”

The Road to Edmond

Which Road Are You On? You Should Spend Some Time On “The Road to Edmond” Just finished watching “The Road to Edmond.” It’s been over a decade since I’ve watched something that centers on telling a “Christian” story. I just don’t have time for stories with two-dimensional characters where the only “honest” people are the brave Christians who, in the

Believing in Evolution – Unexpected Bedfellows

DailyRandomShit for 2016-05-06 When this video came across my social feed I was pretty amazed. It was posted by a number of Christians as a proof against Evolution. Wow, it’s very refreshing to see Evangelical Christians promoting and agreeing with a Muslim.

In Bad Faith 11: A Mentoring Nightmare: The Dead Hippie Preacher

I used to think that part of my disfunction as a Christian leader was because I never really had a constructive mentoring relationship with my pastor(s).

21st Century Christianity Hidden Under 19th Century Robes

This has been a week of change for me. I finished my first course at Full Sail and started my first course as an Assistant Course Director (ACD) for someone else’s course. I also decided to update my profile info in e-Harmony and restart the long dormant “find me a match” process. I also decided last night that I should

“With One Voice” Reflections

Saturday Afternoon, The Theater at Avalon Island, Downtown Orlando. The speaker shared his insights into what he called the seven concentric circles of spirituality or mysticism. I’m usually leery of anything that looks like a kind of spiritual “system.” But then as I listened I was reminded of my first year of university, at LMU, taking a class on Christian

How Other Religions Think about Jesus

When NPR‘s Terry Gross interviewed New Testament scholar, Bart Ehrman, she asked him, in view of having documented his journey from Moody Bible institute to Agnosticism in “God’s Problem” and “Misquoting Jesus,” whether he has ever thought to check out other Faiths. Ehrman said that he knows that Buddhism has a very different attitude about suffering, but in the end
