As most of you probably know, Phil Robertson of the uber popular reality TV program “Duck Dynasty” made some news-stirring comments yesterday about homosexuality. To quote the most cited comment, Robertson said: “It seems to me, a vagina—as a man—would be more desirable than a man's anus. That's just me....
By most standards, NBC’s The Office has been dominant for the early part of the 21st century. Some would say the show is past its prime—I would argue otherwise, though I would acknowledge that its best seasons are probably behind it—but The Office is now in its eighth season...
If that title got you interested, you’re either under six years of age (in which case you probably can’t read) or you’re a young parent. If you don’t fit either description and are reading anyhow, keep going! There are spiritual lessons to be gleaned from unlikely sources. My oldest daughter...
This post is a response to one of the suggestions we’ve received on the blog. Here’s the question: “How does a Christian respond to the popular YOLO (you only live once) philosophy? Do you only live once? How many times do you live, if not? One? Three? I've heard some...
