I loved Donald Miller’s Blue Like Jazz. And sadly I missed the movie when it hit theaters. But the DVD is out, so last night my hubby and I watched it.Unlike the book, which is straight memoir, the film takes episodes in the book and weaves a plot out of them.  When young Donald discovers his mom is having an affair with his fundy Texas church’s youth pastor, Donald takes his likable pot-head dad up on his offer to leave and go to Reed Colle»

I read the book Blue Like Jazz several years ago.  When I think about it, I find it odd that I found it in a Lifeway Christian Bookstore.  It just doesn’t feel like something that a good, Baptist bookstore would sell.  Or that a good, Baptist boy would read.  Since I’m not a good Baptist boy, I guess that makes it alright.

My dorm floor at North Central Bible College had a prayer room, Christian friends, and a Resident Advisor who challenged us to grow as men of God. Campus life at UWSP was more like Reed College.Five great questions of life: Life * Love * Learning * Labor * Leadership The Authenticity of Blue Like JazzBy Evan Nehring  Did I mention, sheepishly, that I have two bachelor’s degrees?

I remember a few years ago when I took a few friends to see a Christian play. The play was very good and had a good message, but for some reason the writer of said play thought that it needed a few swear words inserted in the beginning.
