During the months of my brother’s deployment, his email correspondence was often my sustenance during a string of bad days. What began as simple ‘catching up’ turned into much deeper conversations, with me furiously typing my faith struggles – those questions that abound in the first year of seminary – tossing doubts and ideas into his inbox. It helped him, he said, because the “outside world” was something he missed. Thinking about»

When I was younger, my grandmother would babysit me when my mom had to work. Every morning when she dropped me off, I already knew the schedule for that daybecause it was the same every day. The routine went exactly like this. As soon as I stepped inside, the smell of strong black coffee would hit my nose. She would have a bowl of Kellogg Corn Flakes with banana slices ready for me at the table. After eating she would have me help her do the dish»

Lindsey Summers had long brown hair, a huge smile, and big brown eyes. To my twelve-year old self, she had everything. There I was at my first middle school dance decked out in my finest khaki pants fresh from the husky aisle at the Duck Head Outlet. I stood in the corner of the gym with all of the other non-dancing young men. I had no intention of stepping on that dance floor despite the blaring Backstreet Boys tunes. I was content to simply st»

This was my greatest fear realized. You see, while I love my father, I am not my fath»

Going into my first year at McAfee, I had a lot of expectations.  I figured it would be different from my undergrad work at FSU. I expected it to be an academic and spiritual place that would help me grow as a young minister. I expected to have late nights reading, studying, and making last minute paper revisions. I expected to make friends with my fellow classmates that were going through similar experiences as me. All of these expectations cam»
