  • Easter is for laughing

    When I was a new Christian, I discovered a portrait of Jesus called the “Laughing Christ” at a Christian book store.
    At the time I was attending a serious church, a church where the thought of Jesus laughing was most likely frowned on. Maybe Jesus smiled at babies and puppies, but telling jokes with his friends? God forbid.
    Consequently, because the serious people at that serious church were so serious about their Christian faith, they presented Jesus as serious too. Serious equals somber and sober, which equals humorless and kinda mean.

  • Braves beat the Demons 7-0
  • Preaching still works!

    My junior year of high school was when I felt the strong call of God upon my life. One specific moment during that time stands out amongst all of the rest. It was a cool, breezy night as I was walking across the street from my aunt Seresa’s to my mamaws and I almost got to her driveway when I heard the voice of God, as it thundered in my mind, “If you will preach my word, I will save your family.”
