Big thanks to Peter Philips for sending this my way via Catholic Memes. There's just so much to love about it. As a bearded man, obviously I love the baby beard...even if it does make for a slightly creepy baby Jesus. But my favorite part? The "everyone allowed" sign on the heavenly tree house. ...Read more
Tragedy of all tragedies, I had forgotten all about this guy. Then by chance (or was it the prompting of the Spirit?), I stumbled across one of his videos today (cause I'm a loyal subscriber, I mean how could I not be?!) and now my day is 1000% better and yours will be too after you watch this clip. You've heard of CrossFit, Insanity, and P90X, right? Well, they're all scams. If you really wanna get in...Read more
(H/T)I'm a history guy. And us history folks sometimes enjoying playing a game of historical "What If?". As in, what would the world be like if the South had won the Civil War or if the Allies had lost World War II? What would have happened if Kennedy had never been assassinated or if Jimi Hendrix hadn't...
(H/T) We all have our struggles. Some of us procrastinate. Some of us eat too much. Some of us drink too much. Some of us are greedy. I’ve become increasingly aware that my biggest struggle is with other Christians. Seriously. There are few people or things in the world that get under my skin more easily or spark my anger more quickly than other Christians. Jesus said “love...Read more
Did you ever see The Blair Witch Project? I remember being stuck in the middle of a row of a theater with my head buried between by legs, sure I was gonna puke at any moment and panicking because I couldn't get out to the bathroom. Ugh, shaky cameras. Anyway, The Blair Witch Project started the so-called found footage genre of movies, films that claim...Read more
(H/T) I was going to do a year in review post, but I figured 1) it's more than a bit cliche and 2) trying to predict the future is a lot more fun. So, I'm gonna try something a little different. I'm going to tell you everything (American Jesus related) that's going to happen in 2014!! More or less. I will keep with the cliché, though, and offer up...Read more
I'm in the midst of frantically trying to finish my final paper before Friday. (How you'd you like that alliteration??) But, I wanted to offer just a few very brief thoughts on the plight of Phil Robertson. Emphasis on brief. My Twitter feed and the news feed on my Facebook page is quickly filling up with reactions to what the Duck Dynasty star had to say about homosexuality...Read more
Ever been to a living nativity? You know, where actors stand in place of plastic figures to reenact the scene of Jesus' birth. I remember there was a church in Nashville when I was growing up that went all out and recreated the whole story of Jesus' birth in a drive through experience. They had tons of actors, elaborate sets, even camels. But you know what they didn't have? You know what every living nativity scene is missing that would...Read more
