Moments in the Middle


In the early 90’s, the band Live released a song entitled “Lightning Crashes.” The song paints a very interesting and emotional picture for the listener. Throughout the song, the artist paints a contrasting picture of two major life experiences. At one moment, he sings of the potential and hope present at the birth of a new baby. The next, he turns his attention to the loss and finality felt at...

Competitors or Collaborators


Our society thrives on competition. There seems to be no end to the means through which our competitive streak runs. It can be observed in academics as students and parents alike tout the many accomplishments through the wonder of social media. It can also be seen in athletics on the local, national, and international level; not simply through the actions and attitudes of participants, but also...

Clear a Path


Winter arrived in southern Indiana in dramatic fashion this past weekend! Like most other folk, I found myself questioning the veracity of the forecasts coming from the host of meteorologists. In a scene closely mirroring the story of The Boy Who Cried Wolf, the “experts” have been prone to sensationalize the forecast in recent years. This has incited multiple runs on local grocery stores for...

Make the Play

Sure, I threw the ball with my friends in the neighborhood and played the occasional schoolyard game, but I never played organized ball with a team. It was one sport that was never available to me.

The advent of the smart phone is forcing us to evaluate and redefine how life is lived in our current age and for years to come. Not since the invention of the printing press has humanity experienced such massive changes. Every aspect of life has been touched by this new digital revolution, but...

Best News Ever!


I love the gospel. I truly believe it is not only good news, but the BEST NEWS EVER! As I consider the reality of who Jesus is (the sinless Son of God and God made flesh) and what He did to make a way for us to be in right relationship with Him, I am humbled, convicted, and overwhelmed with hope and gratitude. It is a truth that excites and energizes me. It’s not enough for me to experience and...

Church Camp


When I was a kid, church camp was the highlight of my summer. The church I grew up in was rather large. As a result, the children’s and youth ministries were big enough that our summer camps were self-run. The church would rent the entirety of a camp facility for our weeks of camp. We would bring in our own camp staff. From directors to counselors, from cooks to kitchen help, from crafts to kids...
