For to such belongs the kingdom of heaven

If you’ve ever had kids (or have been a kid), and attended a Sunday morning worship service at a church, you know the struggles involved in placing a child into an age-old, but not necessarily age-appropriate environment. I took at stab at that sometimes-prickly subject over at my church’s blog in a two part series:

Part One: Why Take Our Kids to Worship

Part Two: How To Help a Child Attend a Worship Service

2014 on a sermonic note

My extremely gracious family at Occoquan Bible Church gave me the opportunity to preach the occasional Sunday sermon in 2015. Even more audacious is the fact that they recorded them.

Should you possess similar audacity, these can be listened to here.

Strong-arming the truth

My thoughts on the downfall of Lance Armstrong are up at The Gospel Coalition:

On a rainy May morning in 1996, I woke up early and drove to nearby Bristol, Virginia, to watch the start of a stage in a conspicuously branded professional bicycle race called the Tour DuPont. For a young East Tennessee amateur cyclist, this was about as close to the red carpet as I had ever been. There were a handful of famous European pros on hand, but I really wanted to get a glimpse of America’s next great hope—a scrappy young Texan named Lance Armstrong.
