On Worship: An Insightful Glimpse into the Mind of Dustin Lau

Ridiculous Mercy

If you haven’t heard of Dustin Lau, you will. His new album has not left the confines of my car speakers since his new solo album released. Clashing Indie sounds with sweeping worshipful lyrics, his songs and their lyrics stick with you. One can’t help but fall into worship while listening.

The Gospel According to Gaga: A Modern Commentary on Jesus, Judas, Betrayal, and the Human Propensity Toward Evil

lady gaga judas

On boisterous bikes rolling down the highway, Jesus led his pack of biker-disciples all garnering embroidered leather jackets with skulls and holy names. Such is the image Lady Gaga paints of the twelve disciples in her new music video and single Judas, in which Gaga herself plays the role of the famed harlot and repentant prostitute Mary Magdalene. The video itself is a conglomeration... Read More

The Wonder of the Cross: Reflections on Nails, Wood, and Blood

Cross and Sin

Good Friday, a day when Jesus was nailed to the cross for us and our sins. Many wanted nothing to do with Him, His teachings, or the life to which He called others. His price was high.

He wanted them to serve and sacrifice in such a radical way that society would either... Read More

I saw their video, “God Is Not a Man” there and I was wondering if you’d like to write an article on it? I faceplanted into my keyboard.... Read More

The Radical Reformission: Reaching Out Without Selling Out

Radical Reformission

Years ago I saw my former room-mate reading “The Radical Reformission.” I took a quick glance, thought it might be worth reading, and added it to my “to read” list. Unfortunately the book sat under 100 other books that I would read before getting to this book. Oh how I wish I had read this book right then. This book has completely changed the way I think about ministry,... Read More

Pastor Dad: Scriptural Insights on Fatherhood

Pastor Dad

When I became a father, so much more of God’s heart for His children and His creation was revealed. Our Father in heaven loves his children much like how I love my daughter—and infinitely more.
