Like The Hypocrites

Lately, I am praying more. Others' experience of having quiet time with the Lord made me want to pray more. I want the peace that goes beyond all understanding. I want to follow Jesus more. The problem is that it is boring.

Now, I am not saying that Jesus is boring, or…

The Age Old Problem of Millennials

In my day, when I went to Fuller Theological Seminary, we had to walk six miles up hill both ways, while fighting both the 100-degree heat and four feet of snow. When we got there, we were glad for the thimble full of wine and the piece of…

The Hot Afternoon of Soul

Afternoon.I feel as drained as a ghost town bathtub, cobwebs growing from the rusting faucet. Yes, a black tarantula makes its way across my mind, after a numbing week at work. Or did I make myself numb? I look for signs of life in the abandoned buildings of/…

Lamenting the Loss of Cool

When we were approached by the 141st Air Refueling Wing and Make a Wish about making our son, Tito, their Pilot of the Day at Fairchild Air Force Base, I was apprehensive. I have nothing against the Air Force philosophically. Like many males, I think being a pilot would be cool./…

Church Lock-ins and Growing Faith

You wonder about the inventor of Church lock-ins. What fool, I mean genius, put down the ingredients of a church lock-in and then thought, yes this will be good. Let’s start with a bunch of kids ranging in age of 7 to raging hormones completely out of control. For those…

If The Shoe Fits, Eat it


I had a friend who after the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church's annual Greek Fest,wanted change his faith from his Roman Catholicism to Eastern Orthodox. They had better food, he said, smiling. Of course, he had yet to find out about the Eastern Orthodox Lenten Fast. I think you are allowedRead full post »

There is really nothing funny about church potlucks. Okay, there is. Jell-O. Actually, the great purple Jell-O wave of the 50s,  60s, 70s and 80s has faded into nothing but a joke about predominance of Jell-O at church potlucks. Jell-O is harder to find at today’s church potluck…

Mother's Day Poem for My Wife

 
 
Here is one my first attempts at Video Poem. The theme I was working is how words are first learned before speaking them. I admire how my wife is so bonded with our four year old. Is there anything stronger than love between mother and toddler? Read full post »

I love Winnie Cooper

Actually, I don't love Winnie Cooper, but I thought the writing of this post on the New Yorker was so good that I had to share. The bitter sugar of nostalgia mixed with a longing. What Winnie represented is possibility in the promise of the future. We all grew up with…

His name materialized out of the breath of a Christian who I respect and love. It caught me by surprise, as I had not heard this poet's name in a long time. Charles Bukowski, what a strange name to come from such a committed Christian. My friend, a…

Shaping Love beyond Legalism

 Her eyes clouded ash gray as she told her story. A deep sadness would invade her spirit; a melancholy could command her for days. She was a mother and a wife of a successful doctor. All her needs were met, but some days the darkness descended upon her. Her church, one…

The Ballad of Mitt

The Ballad of Mitt

Once their was a serious candidate for president.
Push by a bunch buffoons in the Primary,
he had to accept many political positions of silliness.

When finally bumped off the last fool, a Political hack from PA,
he though he could shake his crumpling image clean.

Tra, tra, tra ... Live for Today

An argument broke out between them, though argument maybe rather too harsh a word. The two twenty something artists were much to attracted to each other’s spirit and work to have a fight or argument.
