from YPulse:Millennials have been positioned as a fame-hungry generation for years, and have developed a reputation for wanting 15-minutes in the spotlight whether or not they have any talent. But how true is the idea that the generation prioritizes being famous? When we asked 14-29-year-olds for their thoughts on fame, we got a much more complex picture of their desires:(ht: YPulse)»

I was watching a movie the other day.  It doesn’t matter what the name of it was, especially since I wouldn’t recommend it to you.  I find that the case with most movies I watch, but, as I am apt to do, I digress. One of the characters in the movie was taking guitar lessons to impress a girl.  He was terrible, maybe even worse than I have described my mandolin playing ability in previous posts.

Last Thursday I had the opportunity to see Ragamuffin, a movie about “the true story of Rich Mullins”. Wow. I did not know much about Rich’s story going into this movie (I’m not a fan of that genre of music). So I was surprised—in a good way—by how deep the film was. It’s incredibly deep I felt on the edge of crying through most of the movie Before I go any further however, I want to address fame. Readers of my blog may not be aware»

I have the privilege of posting over at Her.meneutics today with a deeper look at Christian celebrity. The post is titled, “Even Jesus Didn’t Live Like a Christian Celebrity.” Here’s a snippet: The kingdom of God is upside down, counterintuitive. Jesus stooped. He left the nirvana of heaven to hang out on this dusty earth. He made himself nothing (though he is everything) in order to rescue us. And his kingdom didn’t inaugurate via star»

This is a reworking of a past post. I felt it needed to be said more boldly. This verse, oh this verse, sticks to my ribs. “We serve God whether people honor us or despise us, whether they slander us or praise us.” 2 Cor. 6:8a NLT I get the part about despising and slander. I’ve made choices in my walk toward Jesus that cause that sort of thing. Not easy, but sometimes inevitable, particularly when I write things that folks don’t like. Th»
