I wrote something on my friend Steve Wiens' blog on the importance of time. Appreciating it, celebrating it, not feeling rushed by it and learning to just be present.

I wrote a guest blog for my friend Steve Wiens' blog today. It's on the meaning and liberation I have found in my bouts with anxiety and depression.

Great debate with Greg Boyd on the history of Jesus and if he is who he says he is.

Amazing video by Greg Boyd on the slippery slope of literal interpretation of the Bible.

Yup, I think one's identification with the free-church heritage is also part of that house of cards, even though this "heritage" has as a matter of fact subtly taken on premises derived from Constantinized Christianity in their expectations...

I wrote this for a friends blog. How do we embrace grace within disorder? How do we learn how to live mess lives?

Been listening to his podcast. Can't say I always agree, but good stuff and always challenging/ stretching. At least he's radically following Jesus as best He understands the call of a disciple!
