How the Truth Sets Us Free

June 14, 2017


“Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:32 NIV) This is a common saying among many believers and non-believers alike. I’ve used it many times. Though, to be honest, I just thought it sounded good…and spiritual. You know, Jesus said it, so it must mean something. But I […]

The Mark of Brokenness

November 4, 2016


Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. (John 12:24) Winter is coming–very slowly here in Texas, I must add, but it is coming nonetheless. All the life that came with Spring all […]

I’ve had the opportunity to read about half this book so far. Lacking all the contemporary hype surrounding all the “things” and “its” of the Kingdom, this work […]

A New Fire for Christ

April 20, 2010


If you have read the About Me section of this blog, you will know that I recently moved from Dallas, Tx., to Gainesville, Fl. to be part of what is called “Organic Church.” We don’t have a pastor, paid clergy, programs, a big budget, or a building. Nor do we meet on Sunday mornings. We […]

“From Eternity to Here” by Frank Viola (Book Review)

April 15, 2010


I recently finished Frank Viola’s From Eternity to Here, and I must say, “Bravo!”. In this book Viola takes the reader on a journey through the grand narrative of the bible, God’s Eternal Purpose, and our function as humans in this glorious story of God. The book is broken into three parts: Part 1: The Forgotten Woman: […]
