Last week was my Fall Break and I had a fantastic week with my wife, daughters, and parents (who were in from out of town). We ventured to an apple orchard, Indianapolis’s gorgeous downtown library, our daughter’s favorite store (Dick’s Sporting Goods), and the Indianapolis Children’s Museum.
What do I want from my students? I want them to push back. I want them to disagree. I want them to tell me where I’m wrong, and to hear where they are wrong.
Christians across America are outraged over the perversion of marriage and perversion of Planned Parenthood selling body parts. Despite this outrage, the Bible says the worst kind of pervert is found inside the church!
On Wednesday, November 18, the Indianapolis Star opinion team sponsored an event titled, “Do I Have to Bake You a Cake?” I was pleased to attend with a few friends and enjoyed the formal event as well as some informal discussion with other attendees after the event.
Our family recent took a long road trip. A few hours in, our 2 year old wanted to know when we could stop to get something to eat. We were coming up on Columbus, Ohio, so we told her that once we got through the city, we would stop for “num nums.” As we approached the city, Emily described what a city would look like so our daughter could know when we were close.

2 days ago, Edmund Brown, Governor of California signed into law a bill that legalizes physician assisted suicide (PAS) in his state. California is the 5th state to legalize such a law. The reasons people favor or oppose PAS are often complicated, yet Governor Brown’s stated reasons for supporting PAS are troubling.
What were your childhood dreams? Did you want to be President? Lead violinist for the New York Philharmonic? A professional athlete? It’s funny to look back at these dreams because many times, they were completely irrational. I wasn’t going to be President, lead violinist, or a pro athlete no matter how hard I tried.
Next summer will be the 10-year anniversary of my trip to Japan. I was part of a construction team that was building a house for a missionary. Throughout our week of work, we only had 2 CD’s (remember those days!) available to us. One was a lame contemporary Christian music album and the other was from 3 Doors Down. Some of my teammates loved that band, so we listened to it all day, every day.
