Presence

One of my favorite bands as a teenager was Caedmon’s Call. If I were to play one of their albums right now, I could probably sing every word to every song, but few of them stick with me in the in-between times. There is, however, a line in the song Center Aisle that comes to mind early and often. The song is about a young woman who took her own life. The vocalist hauntingly sings these words…...

To Be Continued…

TO BE CONTINUED… When it comes to literature, movies, television shows, and other storytelling forms, is there a more annoying phrase in the English language? There are few things as frustrating as investing yourself fully in a story only to be confronted by these soul-crushing words. You ride the storyline all the way to the top of the climax. You invest yourself fully in the characters, in...

Help Wanted

H

The first time I applied for a job was soon after my fifteenth birthday. I had gone through the process of getting the required waiver and was certain of my ability to find gainful employment at one of the very respectable purveyors of fine foods in our area. My first choice was the gallery of culinary artistry known as Subway. I chose this particular establishment for three reasons. First, at...

Give it a Try

G

This morning as I was preparing my morning coffee, I listened in on an interaction between my wife and my son. My son, who is only 11, was very concerned with his ability to maintain his energy levels for the day. He has several opportunities today to engage in athletic activity and he wanted to make sure he did the right things before heading off to school to pave the way for success in all of...

Home Renovation

H

Home renovation shows are all the rage these days. If I were to be completely honest, I do enjoy some HGTV when I get the chance. We don’t have cable at our house, so when we are on vacation we spend a good amount of time observing the latest trends in home decoration and design. Recently, while I was binge watching copious amounts of this mind-numbing goodness, I began noticing some...

Bird vs. Window

B

A few weeks ago, I was working in my office writing when I heard a loud thud from the window to my right. I looked out the window to see if I could figure out what had happened. I carefully observed the window and the ground under the window, but there was no evidence to indicate what had actually hit the window or where it had made contact. I surveyed the parking lot to see if someone had driven...

Inspiration in the Obvious

I

There are many things professors attempted to teach me throughout my years in academia that have long been forgotten. Honestly, I’ve probably forgotten about as much as I’ve remembered. There were, however, several nuggets of wisdom offered that were immediately imbedded deep in my mind. One such piece of advice was offered during my junior year at Appalachian Bible College. The professor said...

Beautifully Broken

B

Every year for Spring Break, my family and I make the trek down to Florida to enjoy some fun in the sun. We spend most of our time at Solivita, a 55+ community where my in-laws spend the winter. This community is much like a resort and is located close to Orlando, so the majority of our time is spent in the middle of the state. However, it would be nigh unto sinful to get so close to the ocean...

Over/Under 30

Sunday programing on the television was almost unbearable when I was a kid. I remember having very few options of what to watch as the world around me napped. Bowling and golf seemingly dominated the airwaves; but certain channels offered the opportunity to watch old movies. There were seldom few movies that held my attention on those lazy Sunday afternoons, and even fewer that I can remember...

When the Silence is Deafening

W

One of the most formative events of my high school career was a summer event we called “Wilderness”. “Wilderness” was our version of church camp for high school students grades ten through twelve, college and career, and adults. Every summer the church would send multiple crews up into the Algonquin Provincial Park in Canada to spend a week in the middle of nowhere. If I were to give someone...
