What We’re Up Against

posted by rgaffney

There’s a lunch I go to when I can at another ministry house on campus. They gather to eat mostly organic local food, and It’s free, so win/win! But the Spiritual Director had hoped it would foster just a bit […]

The Power Of Yes

If you’ve been reading for any length of time it should not surprise you that I’m something of a rule breaker. I believe that Jesus was Neutral Good not Lawful Neutral and I also care about rules only in so […]

The Ultimate Testimony

I don’t have a good testimony. Most people hate it when I say that, but it’s really true. Some people have awesome testimonies and some peoples testimonies are boring like mine. The great testimony goes something like this: “I was […]

Work

Today Was A Good Day

People often ask me what an "average day" looks like for me as a minister at KSU. My answer is always the same, "there's no such thing" In the field, every day is different, and in the line of service […]

HOLY $#/+!

I want to talk a bit about some f***ing profanity. I feel strange doing it. I find myself asking “Really? This is the most important thing to talk about right now?” But I honestly think it is. Not as an […]

I had no idea, not the vaguest hint, yesterday morning as I woke up, I would be saying goodbye to my 1995 Toyota 4Runner I had been worried about a sore throat that I felt was coming on, which would […]

Christ’s Alignment

It’s clear to me where Christ stands on the scale of Alignment he is obviously Neutral Good, The same alignment as Dirty Harry, the same as Spiderman, Luke Skywalker, The Boondock Saints, and The Doctor. Jesus cares about others more […]

Serve God and Die

"They called me Mr. Fun" said Mick, as he sat there on stage. We all understood what he meant, periodically the community would need something to break the tension or the monotony, a game, or a joke, maybe a song. […]

Storage Unit

Today I bought a storage unit so I could move out of the apartment I've been renting and make way for a new tenant. I'll just couch surf for a couple of weeks until I'm ready to move to Kansas. […]

Voy A Mexico
Today I am leaving for Monterrey, Mexico. People keep asking me if it’s a mission trip or a vacation. I like that they have to ask. It’s mostly a vacation. I have a friend down there, and I live nearby, and I like tacos. But the more I think about why people keep asking me if it’s missio

Don’t Believe Everything You Hear About “Troublesome Lesbians”
There is an article Here (I hesitate to link it lest I help propagate the popularity of the article) it is titled “When Two Lesbians Walk Into a Church Seeking Trouble” and features the story of a wonderfully loving and accepting church and how their Christian nonjudgementalism softened the hear
