Your God’s Too Big

Nine days. For nine days our pet German Shepherd/Retriever mix named Chloe was lost to us. I should've seen it coming, though. We moved from an area in West Palm Beach, Florida that provided more than enough property Chloe to sprint and play and dig (I hated that part). Chloe didn't take well to the sights and sounds and smells of the new place — so much so, that she dug under the fence and scampered off.

Jennifer Lawrence, the Irony of Normalcy, & the Righteousness of Faith

She caught our eye in 2007 on a short-lived network comedy. Then, she broke through with an independent drama in 2010 that earned her national acclaim and attention. She flew into the stratosphere and became the mega-star we know and love with a summer blockbuster in 2012, the success of which she’s likely still riding the coattails. If you didn’t already catch it, I’m referring to Jennifer Lawrence.

Fervent Belief

Midweek Bible clubs have begun at my church for kids and teens, from K-5 to 12th grade. Needless to say, Wednesday’s at my church are chaotic — people going here, there, and everywhere, corralling kids of all ages to the right places, disciplining those who are too hopped on sugar, keeping their minds busy through stories and lessons and games, and hoping in the midst of all of this that the Word of God, His gospel, is able to shine forth and sink into these kids’ lives. And for the most part, I think we’re succeeding.
