What Books to Read?

What Books to Read?

But What Kind of Books? I received an email today from Quora, the single most insipid and stupid site on the Internet. Forget the cornavirus. That Quora continues to exist makes me fear for humankind. If you're never been there, and want to do so now, I plead forgiveness, and ask you to gird your [...]

Book Review – Destiny by T.D. Jakes

Book Review – Destiny by T.D. Jakes

Destiny, Step In To Your Purpose, by T. D. Jakes I admit it: like most Americans, any exposure I had to T. D. Jakes was on the Jesus Channel. He’s another pastor with another huge church who write tons of books for a huge audience. But, on those times I would pause on the channel, [...]

Crumb – Pandemic Economics: How It Works

Crumb – Pandemic Economics:  How It Works

You might think the economics of a pandemic are esoteric and complex. Not so and I am here to offer to offer a brief explanation. *** I had to do some banking on Monday. An easy task except that my bank couldn’t make enough money from the humble folk where I live and closed the [...]

Crumb – Grown Up Lesson

Crumb – Grown Up Lesson

We had a lesson at home this week that broke my heart. It’s silly, yes, but when the Megalotto hits about a hundred mil, I’ll buy a ticket for the family. At first, my wife and I thought this was a fun idea: go and buy the card as a family and check the numbers [...]

Crumb – In With The Old, Let New Be New

Crumb – In With The Old, Let New Be New

A woman made a comment in Sunday school yesterday, and I completely agree. Call me an essentialist, a traditionalist, a conservative, or a liberal: so be it. That's your label, not mine. Someone was talking about a new Bible that rewrites passages to include many of our modern ideas. The old is out and the [...]

Facebook Kazooers

Facebook Kazooers

You've seen the Facebook Kazooer advertisement. Apparently, it works. It works on me anyway. In the advert, a hapless and unknowing professor is at the board writing, his back to a hall half full of students. A girl squirts a noise on a kazoo and another answers back. They both look like, “You know what? I’m [...]

Seattle and The South. Differences. Part 1 of 1,000,000. The Saab.

Seattle and The South. Differences. Part 1 of 1,000,000. The Saab.

I live in the South and drive a 1990 Saab Turbo: both on purpose. Recently, an experience highlighted the intersection. I shutter a little every morning on my forty-minute drive to work knowing that, if anything happens to the car, I’m toast: just finding a mechanic who knows how to lift the hood is a challenge. [...]

My False Pride?

My False Pride?

In one way, I don’t know how we get around it. How do you tell stories about yourself without elevating yourself as the center of the story?  It’s the cornerstone of the Christian testimony. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve heard a story in Sunday School or from the guest pulpit, that is [...]
