The Myth of “Practice Makes Perfect”

I was seven years old when I went to my first piano lesson. For ten years, my mom drove me to a country house ten minutes from our own where my beloved piano teacher would teach me theory and technique and remind me of the secret of every great pianist: “Practice makes perfect!” These three words were loaded with promise. I remember hearing them when starting a new and challenging piece. It was intended to motivate and encourage, and there was certainly some truth to the words. It inspired me to...

You Have Permission to Change Your Mind

My hands hovered over my laptop keyboard, trembling. I could blame it on the fact that it was past eleven in the morning and I’d only had coffee, but it was more likely due to the fear bubbling inside of me over what I was writing: my resignation letter. I was quitting my job in journalism and moving onto something else. I just had no idea what that “something else” was going to be.  My stomach flip-flopped with anxiety — not because I felt like it was the wrong decision, but because the gr...

‘Habit’ Review: Models and Musicians Play Dress-Up in a Puerile Campfest

“Habit” stirred controversy (and a petition to block its release) last year when conservatives caught wind that Paris Jackson was cast as a female Jesus Christ in it, with a purported lesbian coupling adding to the blasphemous offense. Well, it turns out that was much ado about almost nothing: There is no such sex scene […]

Antigay activist banned from Canada is absolutely losing it over how gay Netflix has become

It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Peter LaBarbera. The antigay activist hasn’t made too many headlines since he was denied entry into Canada back in 2014 for being too much of a bigot. But LaBarbera, or “Porno Pete” as some people refer to him because of his strange obsession with talking about the graphic details of gay anal intercourse, is back! Basic, common sense truths: Men cannot be women. Women cannot be men. There is no such thing as a “pregnant man.” 2 dudes cannot truly be “ma...

The Sign-Up Sheet for Demo Day

I clenched my phone in the palm of my hand after sending a text that set up some emotional boundaries I knew weren’t going to be well received. The text thread went silent, and I held my breath, swallowing a sob welling in my throat. I wasn’t expecting nearly a decade of friendship to end here in a hotel hallway, untethered by a single text. My thoughts skidded through the past few moments as I tried to process the string of texts that became the epicenter of a friendship breaking apart. Last ye...

What Is Logos in the Bible? A Short and Extended Answer

More than the name of this blog and our Bible study software, logos (which we pronounce LOW-goess . . .  and LAH-gahss) is an important Greek word in biblical and theological studies. “ Logos is arguably the most debated and most discussed word in the Greek New Testament,” writes Douglas Estes in his entry on this word in the Lexham Bible Dictionary (a free resource from Lexham Press) . What does logos mean, and why is it significant for Christian theology and biblical studies...

The Great Stores of God’s Provision

I recently read an account of one of the world’s most dangerous and demanding races. Over the course of a week, participants must run nearly 300 kilometers over scorching desert terrain. Once they set out, they are expected to remain mostly independent and to follow a track that has been staked across flatlands and dunes, dry river beds and infrequent oases. To ensure participants have the provisions they need, the race organizers leave stores of food, water, and medical suppl...

Receive the Eucharist & Become Eucharist for Others

Jesus’ audience grumbled about Him because He had told them, “I am the bread that came down from heaven.” Jesus responded to their grumbling in two ways. Firstly, He pointed them to His Father’s open invitation to all humanity in every time and place, “Everyone who listens to my Father and learns from Him comes to me.” Secondly, He provided the true life-giving bread in His own flesh, “The bread that I will give is may flesh for the life of the world.” Jesus invites all and provides all that...

Wise Up! Children’s Sermon: 1 Kings 3:3-14; Ephesians 5:15-21

This message aims to describe for children what wisdom means and where it comes from. Young people might think of wisdom as mere knowledge or “head smarts”, but true wisdom comes from the heart. Wisdom is something that we should desire because God wants us to have it and practice using it. The message uses practical objects and misconceptions to elaborate on what wisdom is. Law/Gospel Theme: God wants us to act as wise and not foolish people. However, He gives us the tool...

Wise Up! Sunday School Lesson: 1 Kings 3:3-14; Eph. 5:15-21

What is wisdom? How do we know what choices are best? Can we make ourselves wise? Young students may or may not have encountered such considerations in their lives, but they are worth discussion. Kids should understand what wisdom is and where it comes from. They can learn the importance of discernment, even at an early age. The story of King Solomon is a great opportunity to contemplate wisdom and recognize that it is a treasure from God.  Lesson focus: This lesson focuse...
