Sometimes I preach: Advent, John 1:1-14 (SSUMC 12/7/14)
Before anything was, when there was only darkness and chaos, there was the Word, and through the Word, God spoke and from the Word came light. And God saw that it was good. When there was only darkness and chaos. There was the Word. This is where John’s sto...
Before anything was, when there was only darkness and chaos, there was the Word, and through the Word, God spoke and from the Word came light. And God saw that it was good. When there was only darkness and chaos. There was the Word. This is where John's story begins.

#Guyturns27
My favorite boy turned 27 two weeks ago, which is convenient since that means his birthday weekend fell over the holiday weekend!                                                  Though Guy doesn't take birthday nearly as seriously I do, I still wanted to m...
Then after church on Sunday, we drove to Chattanooga Bend State Park for a picnic and hiking alongside the river. I might have vandalized a little bit. But it seemed worth it. After hiking we drove to LaGrange to spend the night. We ate at Brickyard Grille and Tavern in downtown LaGrange.

Tom the Turkey (My Short Thanksgiving Post0
Seriously, if you have 15 minutes today, you should listen to this hilarious true story about Tom the Turkey and his demise. (It starts at 14 minute mark)  "He lived like a bird, but he died like a gangster."

The Bible is not a love letter written directly to you
"The Bible is God's Love Letter written just for me!" Seriously, guys. Stop saying that. Stop thinking it. Stop pinning things about it. Because when you say stuff like that, the internet produce scary pictures like this one. I blame you for this image.  Tr...
Because if the Bible was actually was God's love letter written to me personally, I might think that somebody needs to explain to God what exactly love letters are supposed to look like... Because this "love letter" has genocide in it. Floods. Destruction. And a whole bunch of gore, ...

Sometimes I Preach: Walking with God (Back to Jerusalem), Luke 24:11-35 (SSUMC 8/24/14)
Because we believe that God walks with you down the road, surrounding your whole life with grace. We proclaim that before you took your first steps, God was with you. Even when you’re walking away from the place you should be, God meets you on the road. And...

Spring 2014: An Inadequate Overview
Back on February 15, I looked ahead at my calendar and had an overwhelming feeling of excitement, followed by a tiny bit of panic (no weekends=rough end to semester) But almost every weekend from Feb 21 to past weekend (May 26) was filled by something wonde...
So that was a brief brief glimpse into all the good parts of my semester. It was filled to the brim with people that I love. There was also lots of stress as the final papers refused to write themselves no matter how hard I begged and working at church as more paperwork than anyone would guess.

Sometimes I preach: When Jesus Says Things We Wish He Wouldn't, Matt 5:21-37 (SSUMC on 2/16/14)
Warning: I complain about the weather because let's face it. Winter is terrible, even not that bad Georgia winters.  " The Jesus I picture in my head wears sandals all the time so obviously, he couldn't have been cold, right? And it was strangely comforting...

You won't remember the day you got baptized. You won't remember how so many of the people who love you gathered with your mom and dad in the back of your church. You won't remember the white christening gown you wore, the same gown your sister wore less than two years earlier.
