A few years ago I was asked to write an essay for a newsletter. The purpose of this newsletter was to inspire and encourage people to trust God with their lives. The editor asked me to write about the first time I tried running four years after my legs had been severely injured in an […]

Why you should date your church (a blog post)

posted by mpt

One of the church’s long-standing dirty little secrets is the weird dynamics of membership. People have debated the necessity of church membership for centuries and continue to do so today. Books like “Stop Dating the Church” scold those with commitment issues, insisting you cannot really be part of the body of Christ unless you join […]

Speak up (you’re not alone)

posted by mpt

The following post is by my friend (and frequent reader of this blog) Alise D. Wright. If we met in real life, within just a few minutes you would realize that you will never, ever have a problem hearing me. I have what some might call a distinct voice. Most will probably just call it […]

posted by mpt

This is a guest post by Nish Weiseth They said this would happen upon reentry. The shattering. Erik and Rowan picked me up at the airport.

Whipped into Shape: Trying to Reconcile the God of Peace with the Rhetoric of Violence

Four months ago, when I traveled to Seoul for some vacation time (a visit that included going up to the DMZ and stepping into North Korea briefly), I visited the Korean War Memorial. It’s a gigantic monument, with a large […]

New England has Christian musicians?!

Well, sort of. Yes, there are Christian musicians in New England. But not many… and I don’t know if I’m a Christian musician necessarily. But I am definitely a Christian and a musician… if that makes sense. My name is […]

A GUEST POST: Why I believe in ‘The Church’ again (a post about YOU)

This post is written by my friend Aaron Reddin. Let me say this: 2009 thoroughly sucked.  And when I say it sucked… I mean… Well, it just sucked, OK? There were some really amazing things that took place, but their […]

A BLOG POST: The Gospel of Time

A GUEST POST: Unfree in Christ…
