Henry’s Boys

In a church in Georgetown, Kentucky this week, there is going to be a funeral for one of my fellow teachers at the ministry where I serve. His name was Henry. Henry came to our school from a career in ministry, public school administration and teaching. After retirement he lost his wife, and a great […]

The Weekend File 12:08:07: A Must Read Interview with Frank Schaefer + More

Oldspeak is the blog of John Whitehead, who has connections with the Schaeffer story, so it’s no surprise he has the best interview I’ve seen with Frank Schaefer regarding Crazy For God and many of the true, but controversial aspects of the book. It’s a must read interview. On the same subject, Frank Schaefer’s early […]

Brant Hansen + Links on Meds and Mental Illness

While we’re on the subject of telling the truth, Brant Hansen is blogging about his medication, depression, being messed-up, his brain and lots of other great things revolving around taking Prozac. It’s just such great writing and so much needed I’ll just link it, and you can trust me: it’s very good. BTW, Brant is […]

Well Said: B16 On Issues Between Roman Catholics and Baptists

Pope Benedict XVI issued a statement this week noting the continuing conversation between Roman Catholics and the Baptist World Alliance. It’s a good statement, and as a Baptist and a post-evangelical (if you want to know what I mean by that, ask Phil Johnson) I thought it laid down some very good lines worth noting […]

Recommendation and Review: Crazy For God by Frank Schaeffer

UPDATE: This reviewer totally gets it. Crazy for God is available at many bookstores. A really good review and the C-SPAN program link. I just closed the cover on the 400 pages of Crazy For God and I probably shouldn’t be writing anything until I have more perspective, but I want to write now, while […]

Observing Advent and Christmas: Thoughts for the Christian Family

Many of you are on the same journey our family has been on in regard to living out the Biblical story through the Christian year. It can be a challenge, to say the least. Denise and I did a mini-seminar today on Celebrating Advent and Christmas. It was aimed at younger couples with children who […]

Be A Sign

Denise and I were traveling to an unfamiliar church last night, and even with perfectly good directions and plenty of time, we got lost. So I stopped at McDonald’s and asked for help. Asking for directions at McDonald’s for a large downtown “First Baptist” church probably wasn’t a great idea anyway. One guy didn’t speak […]

iMonk 101: I’m Not A Conservative Christian

iMonk 101 features essays from the IM archives. Well, I’ve been trying to post for over an hour. Wrote and dumped a new piece twice. Then this one went nuts. I think I’ll go to bed. I’m Not A Conservative Christian A good post for this political season, exploring the relationship between our political conservatism […]
