Christmas Anyway

This Is no Hallmark movie. This hurts. You had high hopes for the holiday and something spoiled it. Family conflict. Financial tension. Physical distance. A million things can go wrong. When it happens at Christmas, it’s amplified. And at Christmas it’s all the...

Cataclysmic Blessing

One of the best things God can do for you is drive you to your knees. Jesus is so counter-intuitive, so counter-cultural, so counter ME. It took a massive blow to my heart, mind, and soul to get my attention. And it ain’t over yet. In the fall of 2019, a close...

Right Here. Right Now.

The Jesus Music

It was with great anticipation and high hopes we saw The Jesus Music movie, the documentary film about Contemporary Christian Music, from its humble origins in the early 70s in Costa Mesa, Cali., to the multi-billion-dollar industry it is today. We weren’t...
