The Best Movies You’ve Never Seen from Black Directors

(Welcome to The Best Movies You’ve Never Seen, a series that takes a look at slightly more obscure, under-the-radar, or simply under-appreciated movies. This week we give a nod towards Black History Month with a look at some of the best, little-seen films from black filmmakers.) Great films and filmmakers are worth celebrating all year round, but we live in a world that likes to categorize and quantify, meaning February has been designated as Black History Month (and Women in Horror month too f...

God is Almighty (Lesson #1 in What is God Like?)

When you think about what you want your children to learn at church, what’s the first thing that pops into your mind? We’ve all been there. With so much truth in the Bible where do we start? Why not start where the Bible starts. No, not necessarily creation, but GOD. Who is God? What is God like? What does God do? C.H Spurgeon once said, “The highest science, the loftiest speculation, the mightiest philosophy, which can ever engage the attention of a child of God, is the name, the nature, the p...

On the Smugglers’ Radar

“On The Smugglers’ Radar” is a feature for books that have caught our eye: books we have heard of via other bloggers, directly from publishers, and/or from our regular incursions into the Amazon jungle. Thus, the Smugglers’ Radar was born. Because we want far more books than we can possibly buy or review (what else is new?), we thought we would make the Smugglers’ Radar into a weekly feature – so YOU can tell us which books you have on your radar as well! On Ana’s Radar: First up, a bo...

Blaze Bernstein’s killing one year later: How his death has impacted Orange County and beyond

On Jan. 10, 2018, Orange County Sheriff’s Department investigators found 19-year-old Blaze Bernstein’s body in a shallow grave near Borrego Park in Foothill Ranch. Officials determined he had been stabbed 20 times, killed in an act of rage. Bernstein was gay and Jewish, the grandson of a Holocaust survivor. And for most of 2018, a year that saw a surge in anti-Semitic hate crimes including the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting that left 11 dead, and hate incidents against members of the LGBT communi...

7 Excuses for Not Doing What God has Called Us To Do

There’s always an excuse if we’re looking for one. I’ve made so many excuses in my life. For years I may have sensed God was calling me into vocational ministry, but I knew I had to provide for my family. Also, I would be leading with the limps of previous failures – how and why would God use me? I didn’t have the most pastoral qualities either. For example, I’m far more of an organizational developer than I am a caregiver for the sick. There were a dozen others. If anyone had an encouragement f...

God Does Give You More than You Can Handle

This week the blog is sponsored by Tyndale, and the post is written by Jason Hague, author of Aching Joy.  I am richly blessed in the community department. Not everyone is so lucky. Like others who are in the throes of crisis, autism parents often seek comfort from friends, but all too often, they get inspirational platitudes instead. Those platitudes aren’t malicious, of course. Just unhelpful. Here’s the most common example: “God never gives you anything you can’t handle.” ...

Dark Horse’s ‘Black Hammer’ Comic Series Being Adapted for Film and Television

There are a handful of names whose presence on the cover of a comic book ensure that I will pick up that issue. One of them is writer Jeff Lemire. Now Black Hammer, one of his most popular series, is being transformed into a “multi-platform, interconnected universe” spanning film and television. Black Hammer, created by Lemire and artist Dean Ormston, debuted in 2015 and found instant critical and commercial success. The series was nominated for eight Eisner Awards (AKA the Oscars for comic ...

Erik Michael’s Refining Moment: New Single – “You Are All I Need”

For a young hard working man, Erik Michael earned a steady, comfortable income in sales as well as achieving a platform in music and ministry many might envy. However, life has a way of peeling away what symbolizes our security. Soon, Erik met an empty refrigerator each night. The choice to pursue helping a church plant while supporting himself with contract work stripped away his independent streak. His pride was punctured. With the weight of life’s circumstances on his shoulders, “Why God?” be...

God Will Sustain You a Day at a Time

Earlier this year, my arms completely gave out as I was getting ready. I couldn’t even get dressed by myself. I was exhausted, and it wasn’t even nine in the morning. I suffer from post-polio syndrome, and I’m never sure when some new pain is a daily setback or the new normal. I didn’t want to go on like this. What was this day going to hold? I cried out to the Lord, telling him that all of this felt colossally unfair. I ended by declaring, “I can’t live like this for the rest of my li...

Does Your Dog Have a Secret?

Where do dogs come from?It’s a surprisingly big question, and the answers are surprisingly complex.At the micro level, there is the question of where your dog comes from?If you are like more than half of all Americans, your dog came from a shelter or rescue, which means your dog bounced through at least two or three sets of hands before finding its forever home.My wife’s Italian Greyhound, for example, was listed on Petfinder as an adult “Jack Russell-Chihuahua cross”. His origins are a bit...

10 Prayers of a Christian Leader

A leader’s most effective tool may be prayer. For the Christian leader, especially, prayer should be critical to how we lead. I’m 54 and I’ve not mastered this yet – even though I know how powerful prayer is for the believer. Our leader, Jesus was always walking in prayer with the Father. Jesus said I do nothing except what the Father tells me to do. So, when Jesus needed to feed the multitudes, he lifted up the bread and fish and prayed. Just before Jesus was about to be crucified – At the wea...

If God Is with Me, Why Did This Happen?

“If the Lord is with us, why then has all this happened to us?” (Judges 6:13). Gideon asked the question thousands of years ago, and we have been asking it ever since. Haven’t we all asked that question secretly, if not out loud, at some point in suffering? The Israelites were disheartened by the Midianites’ continual oppression. To many, like Gideon, these hardships didn’t make sense if God truly was with his people. They had heard the stories of God’s power, but since they had never ...

Images become traps

Judges 8:27 And Gideon made an ephod thereof, and put it in his city, even in Ophrah: and all Israel went thither a whoring after it: which thing became a snare unto Gideon, and to his house. Gideon seemed to want to serve God. It doesn’t appear that he had any desire to cause God’s people to veer off from serving God. He simply wanted something to remember the great victory. It didn’t take long for people to turn an innocent remembrance into an idol. That idol becomes a snare, a trap, that de...

"Why Public Defenders Matter More Than Ever in a Time of Reform"

The title of this post is the title of this interesting new commentary authored by John Pfaff for In Justice Today.  The extended piece is not readily summarized, so go read the whole thing.  Here are its closing paragraphs: As criminal justice reform becomes more politically tenable, however, there is room for public defender offices to take on a lobbying role as well. They are well-positioned to tell legislators the stories about the costs of excessive and counterproductive harshness, to help...

The Geometry Of Terrier Work

Gideon in a typical shallow pipe. Dog weights go up a lot with a very little increase in size, due to some very basic geometry.

A 4 Step Battle Plan to Destroy Fear
