Sometimes I wonder if my current method of repeatedly whacking myself like a kid with a stick at the ground is really the best way to test my limits. Why do I have to hit a wall before I stop? Why do I have to flop before I see I’ve been drowning, gulping, spitting, lu...

I never expected to be a middle-aged man. Since I’ve been born, I’ve been on the world’s slowest stopwatch, ticking one year at a time for thirty-three years almost now. I’m looking ahead, and I can feel the hourglass tilting, the stopwatch pausing, the New Year’s ball...

I know traffic is a silly thing, a thing we pooh-pooh and slough off and banter about when there’s nothing else to talk about. But it’s a thing. It’s a thing in my day that works like a pH tester for my soul, testing the condition of its waters, telling me which diseas...

You may literally want to rip my head off when your done reading this post. In fact, you may want to do it a whole nother time after that.

One awesome thing I’ve come to learn about the English language is that words are important. I’m not trying to flout...

A couple of nights back, Oprah donned once again her mantle of America's gnostic pope, and addressed the issue of women's equality. No spoilers here, we expected that. She gave a stirring account of both her inspiration as a child in seeing Sidney Poitier's recognition...

"Who Lynched Willie Earle" is designed to equip preachers to address racism from the pulpit. Written by Duke University's William Willimon, the book is compassionate, well-written and insightful. Here, I've distilled a few key insights I took from the book (I would lov...

Scorsese's "Silence" was one of those films I was terrified to watch, for good reason. It unearths secret questions I've long buried. It takes a bald, raw look at the most terrifying potentials of human nature. It doesn't give clean answers. The evangelical in me hisse...
