What Is Beautiful Worship?

A couple of weeks ago, I chaperoned a field trip to the Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption in Covington, Kentucky. Built at the turn of the twentieth century, it was modeled in the Gothic style after the Abbey Church of St. Denis and the cathedral of Notre Dame,... read more

Are there other gods?

As we’ve been reading through the whole Bible as a congregation, I have fielded a few questions about Scripture’s apparent references to divine beings other than God. The answer to the following question on that topic has a lot to do with worship, so I’m sharing it... read more

Christians Worship

Worship is fundamental. That may sound mundane, but let me explain. The fundamental nature of worship became clearer to me in a conversation I had in November with a man named Scott, whom I met on the disc golf course. He said he came from a Christian family, but when... read more

Why I’ll be writing on worship…

In March 2014 I began writing monthly ministry newsletters to supporters and friends who were interested in the work Dani and I were doing for the kingdom of God. For about five years, this meant writing on my work as a campus minister at Indiana University. Then, in... read more

The Grace of Shame: Censored on Amazon

The Grace of Shame has been censored on Amazon. Just like that. And no, we weren’t notified. It just happened. Now, if you try following a link to what used to be the product page, instead of finding a book on biblical sexuality which reviewers had given an... read more
