The Right Kind of Crazy

Madness. It reigned over and rained on this city just weeks before we landed this weekend at McCarran International airport. Las Vegas–affectionately dubbed “sin-city”–was shaken to its core when sin made its ugliest darkside known. A thoroughly broken man lit up this city of lights with a semi-automatic weapon, a bump stock and a cache […]

The Chicken Or The Egg

Growing up I had never heard of “Lent”. It was a foreign concept to my low-brow spiritual upbringing. In fact all of the “church calendar” (with the notable exceptions of Easter, Christmas and Pentecost) were seen as the machinations of the elite liturgical church used to manufacture artificial spiritual experiences.

I Thirst

We had just left the opening night of our church’s passion play. The scene that unfolded in the restaurant is still a source of laughter around our house. I was worship and arts pastor at a substantial church bent on authentically reproducing the Crucifixion every year. (That year we nearly killed Jesus by dropping him off the […]

A Different Kind of New Year

We were moving into our new home and throughout both Christmas and New Years when everyone else was partying we were packing and unpacking. Cardboard boxes replaced […]

The Absurdification of Culture

It was a flash of mobile irony. Driving home after dropping off my teacher-wife at school, I was listening to National Public Radio. I enjoy the unique way they narrate the news. The story was about a dog grooming salon in Taiwan where the proprietor/groomer, Xiao Mo, is experimenting with canine quaffs created in distinct geometric shapes. Using skills […]

Numb And Number

My fingers were numb. I couldn’t feel anything. And not feeling is a weird feeling. It happened a few weeks ago when I picked up my guitar after not having played for years. I used to love to play, but piano has taken guitar’s place as ‘my’ instrument. Now I am at that age where […]

A Rude Awakening

A Rude Awakening

5:10 AM Being an early riser by nature, it’s not an unusual time for me to be up. But those particular red numbers from the digital clock are now permanently etched in my brain. That’s what happens when four rapid-fire gunshots so loud they could be in the next room serve as your wake-up call. There […]
