Symbols & Idols

I was thinking about making this one of my podcast episodes but honestly, those are somewhat “off the cuff” and more freeform in how I do those and I felt like this one needed to be a bit more calculated in my approach. We happen to live in a time when there are countless things an individual could pick to write on or share an opinion about…natural disasters, talk of nuclear war, healthcare, immigration reform, the new iPhones…just to mention a few. Despite all of those important issues, I’d like to share my thoughts on the current reactions over professional athletes’ peaceful protest during the national anthem of The United States of America.

NOH Podcast is HERE!

Posted on April 20, 2017

S1E1 of the ‘Neighborhood of Holy’ audio podcast is up! Go here to listen and check it out.

Thanks for your help already!

Here’s what I’m thinking about when I think about 2017…

Overshadowed

It’s just been in the past few weeks that I’ve realized something and for that, I need to apologize. It has just recently become quite apparent to me that 2016 has been an incredibly difficult year for a number of individuals. Many of you and/or individuals you know, are not tracking the days until Christmas but instead are counting down the days until this year walks out the door.

This Is Politics

We could discuss the difference between talking about things that are immature, crass, offensive, and things that are criminal assault and deception. There is plenty that could be said about respectful (or lack thereof) discourse. We could say much about the intersection of faith and politics or the rise and fall of “the evangelicals.” I don’t want to talk about any of this here.
