wolves

I’ve always been fascinated by predators. I mean, maybe it’s the caucacity (white people audacity) in me, but I feel like they all want to be my friend. Whether it’s a big cat at the zoo or a shark in the ocean, I’m fascinated and drawn to predators. And wolves are the same way. I’ll…

the way home

I did something a couple of days ago I hadn’t done in quite some time. I opened up my Bible. Now I know this probably comes as a huge shock to many of you, especially if you knew my previous vocation. But honestly, the last couple of years have been filled with a lot of…

the greatest of these

Look at those kids. They had no idea what was coming. Perhaps they thought they knew what love was. After all, they had seen the movies, read the books, listened to the love songs and had even just expressed love and vows before God, family and friends. I can still feel the heat and humidity…

I don’t know about you, but I’m not the biggest fan of living through history. Granted, I think the age of technology makes this all the more intolerable as 24 hour news cycles berate us with the latest happening and tragedies. But I think we will all look back on these days of living through…

dear first love

First of all, I want you to know I’m doing okay. There was a time where I wasn’t, but I think I’m okay now. And this is a hard letter to write. Mainly because this is the first time in my life I can safely say, it wasn’t me, it was you. But it definitely…

I hate change. And it’s not just a pithy sentiment for me. I am 1000% a creature of habit. I love a good schedule. I practically eat the same breakfast every morning and know what I’ll be preparing for lunch and dinner for the family. I wear only one brand of jeans and I own…

us vs. them

I’m tired y’all. And it’s probably not what you think. You see, I love politics. I even love talking about them and having a good old-fashioned debate. But I am thoroughly exhausted in our demonizing those who don’t agree with us. You will sometimes even hear people say, “I don’t want to get too political,…

black lives matter

My son is black. This is a reality that I live with everyday. Yes, those of you who know him see him in much more complex ways. You may see his amazing smile and his joy for life. You will often see the way he loves deeply and cares for everyone he meets. You may…

separation and good friday

Every year as I walk through Holy Week I try to have a fresh perspective. This year it has been thrust upon us all. And yet, there are still those determined to recreate the norm, defy scientific advice and endanger their own and those they come into contact with. I’m honestly at a loss for…

holy week

It’s weird right. I mean, here we are entering into the most important time in the Christian calendar and it just doesn’t feel right. There was no procession of children waving palm branches on Sunday. There is no preparation for foot washing, communion, stations of the cross, Tenebrae, or even Easter Sunrise services. Although, we…
