Christmas Isn’t my Favorite Holiday (a Truth and a Lie)

Christmas isn’t my favorite holiday. This is the truth but also a lie. It’s the truth because from a Christian perspective Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday edge out Christmas for the holy days closest to my heart. When I share the Gospel, I emphasize the belief in salvation through Christ alone. This makes Good Friday […]

The Accidental Evangelist

The Accidental Evangelist

Last month I took a plane trip to visit my family in Indiana. On the flight over, I decided to use the three-hour plane trip to catch up on my leadership training. One of my assignments was to read a few chapters in Lee Strobel’s The Case for Faith. No big deal, right? Quietly read […]

Irma is Not God’s Punishment

Irma is Not God’s Punishment

This happens every time a major disaster happens. Some crank — sometimes a more high-profile crank than others — claims that the disaster is God’s “punishment” for some perceived infraction on the part of whoever’s getting slammed at the moment. Pat Robertson once denounced my home city of Orlando because of Walt Disney World’s acceptance […]
