Memo to CNN and Bill Nye

CNN recently ran an article about the YouTube slam on creationism, "Creationism Is Not Appropriate for Children," by Bill Nye -- also known as TV’s "Bill Nye the Science Guy." I felt it worthwhile to address this.

Marriage Under Fire

There’s an old line that goes, "It’s like saying you want to marry someone, but still date around." Who would think of marrying someone, and then act as if it was okay to date? It was an easy point to get. Not anymore.

Reaching Out to the Unchurched

I want to make sure that churches understand their models. And specifically, that if you want to be a church for the unchurched, you understand what that means.

Our Snarky Selves

"Snarky" is a relatively new, mostly British slang adjective that means "critical," "cutting" or "testy." It can refer to a person, or mood. Or, in our case, a culture.

The latest edition of The New York Times Magazine features a cover photo of a young girl with long hair in a long, flowing pink dress decorated with flowers. Only it isn’t a girl. It’s a boy.

Church Hopping

A working definition: church hopping is going from one church to another without committing to any one church for any significant period of time (which makes it different than legitimate church "shopping").

Always On, Never With

There are several fallouts from a culture that is “always on.” For one thing, it's made us impatient.

It's All About Tolerance

Have you scratched your head over the last few weeks and thought, “What in the world is going on?” What’s going on is a massive divide about what is meant by “tolerance.”

The Chick-fil-A Mirror

Every now and then an event comes along that offers a unique reflection of our world. A mirror, if you will, of what our culture has become.
