Last weekend, a very sick young man entered First Baptist Church, Sutherland Springs, during their regular Sunday morning service and opened fire killing 26 churchgoers and wounding 20 others making it the 5th largest mass shooting in US history.

How are you, today? No, really. How are you? If you are like me, you’ll probably repeat that phrase (notice I didn’t say ask that question) several times today, and probably tomorrow, too. It rolls off of our tongues as quickly as our standard robotic response… “I’m good” or it’s equally familiar, “I’m fine”, which

The late author and lecturer Phyllis Tickle supposed that the church goes through a “rummage sale” every 500 years or so and throws out the old forms of spirituality and replaces them with new ones.  Some of the most notable “rummage sales” over the last 200 years include Constantine in the late 4th century, early

I’ve never been one to do something half way. Whether it’s reaching for the stars or sticking my foot in my mouth, I tend to be all in. There is no more important area in your (or my) life to be all in than in our faith and walk with God. We see all through
