How Do You Explain the Trinity to Children?

I think the reason this question resonates with so many parents is precisely because we adults can’t adequately explain the doctrine ourselves.

The Slippery Slope Emerges

The idea is a simple one: if you take one step on to a slippery slope, you may find yourself sliding all the way down the hill. Culturally, it means that if you rationalize doing something from a particular philosophy or set of values, you may want to consider how that same rationale might apply to other, less popular, concerns.

Four Questions

During a jog on our annual study break, I was praying to God for self-evaluation; how I could improve, do better, go to another level in my life and ministry. As I continued down the trail, four questions formed in my mind that penetrated to the heart of not just improvement, but the kind of ruthless self-assessment that leads to substantive life change.

You and Your Church

Let’s talk instead about what any single individual person, in any particular church, can do to help their church reach its full redemptive potential. In other words, let’s go after the lowest-hanging solution-oriented fruit.

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.

Good News for Bad Preachers

Great preachers are the ones who preach really bad sermons. The difference is that they preach really bad sermons when they’re young, and are sharpened for life by critique.

Sanctification Is a Community Project

The measure of the Christian life is growth in holiness. We grow in holiness, at least in part, by putting sin to death. We put sin to death by exposing it to the light.

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.

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").
