ed. note: sorry i haven't been very attentive to the blog this week. i know that there are many of you who check it daily, and i usually try to make every effort to be daily with new materials, but with the thanksgiving holiday combined with the passing of our beloved family dog, i haven't felt much like doing any more than absolutely necessary. thank you for your words of sympathy and compassion which we have been so blessed to receive. last night at our church as we continued our journey through the not a fan study, we had a great conversation about the supposed dichotomy between religion and relationship. this is a huge cultural epidemic, and while you may think you haven't heard of it, i'm fairly certain that you have. it is rampant in our culture, and, by result, in our christian subculture. let me explain. you have heard it said in our culture, if you've been paying attention, that people are choosing to be "spiritual, not religious."
a collection of words about God and life and art and baseball and football and hope and my family and my ministry and music and the immense joy in each moment of all of it. it's a record of being human. welcome.
