We Had Some Church Today

I can remember time after time leaving the church service on Sunday, hearing one of the older saints in the church yell out that “we really had some church today”, or actually “chuch” would be the more accurate vernacular. Typically that meant that when the believers had gathered together, everything was right on point. WorshipContinue reading “We Had Some Church Today”

The Death and Ressurection of Christ

Interviewed by J.R. Briggs

I had the privilige of being interviewed by J.R. Briggs (author, blogger, and pastor) on the subject of race. He is a good dude and it has been a pleasure connecting with him recently. He asked me lively and curious questions that delve into theological, ecclesiological, and sociological arenas.  I invite my readers to jumpContinue reading “Interviewed by J.R. Briggs”

Holy Week…

If anyone knows me, they know that I believe that this time ought not only be about remembering Jesus on the cross, but the cross of Jesus ought to be shaping how we live our lives too.  Our lives now ought be continually marked by love, sacrifice, submission, and service to God and others!

A Run through the Black Experience in America

Check this video out (and yes this seems to have been made right when Obama becomes President, which is why he is such a huge part at the end.) What do you think? (This post is not meant to be political about Pres. Obama, but the black american experience in totality)

Not Different but Faithful

I had a great conversation with some friends and our discussion found its way to the discussion of church. I know, me talking about the nature of the Church, surprise surprise!!!  Anyways, one friend knowing my long term goal to do a church plant, asked how I would ensure that I did not fall intoContinue reading “Not Different but Faithful”

What is Missional?

I know I have thrown out the term Missional at various times on this site, with out spending the time to define what it is.  While I have critiqued aspects of it as a movement, and how it has been lived out, I tend to agree with the overall theological foundations and assumptions. A friendContinue reading “What is Missional?”
