So Why Are You Doing This?

Posted on Jul 1 2021

As I write this, Tuesday of the previous week I arrived as part of a group of people to the public library of Plymouth to publicly disagree with the holding of a Drag Queen Story Hour for children. Friday I was called by people that heard on our local radio station that another such event […]

Trayvon: What to Tell Youth About Confrontations

Posted on Jul 16 2013

Watching many videos giving reactions to the George Zimmerman trial I came across one that is from the soon-to-be-reborn Crossfire show, with Newt Gingrich and Van Jones debating. Now, I like Van Jones, though he is politically the opposite of me, because he’s thoughtful and intelligent. What he said shocked me, though. He said, as […]

Missionary Dating

Posted on Mar 14 2013

When I was in high school active in our church’s youth group, there was a phenomenon we called ‘Missionary Dating’. This referred to a Christian dating a non-Christian. I was somewhat sensitive to this subject, given that I was the ‘nice young man’ that Christian girl’s parents wanted their Christian girls to date. That was […]

Of Rand Paul, Dogs and Cats Living Together

Posted on Mar 12 2013

I don’t ordinarily write here, or preach, about political things, but Rand Paul did something last week of Biblical proportions. Biblical proportions? What do I mean, “biblical”? “Old Testament, Mr. Mayor, real wrath-of-God type stuff! Fire and brimstone coming down from the sky! Rivers and seas boiling! Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes! The dead […]

An Amazing Story About George Washington

Posted on Mar 4 2013

Recently I began to read the book ‘America the Beautiful’ by Dr. Ben Carson M.D., who has been gaining a lot of attention lately since he most recently spoke at a National Prayer Breakfast. Many of us who saw the video of the speech appreciated his unabashedly Christian message, and how he tied it to […]

Some New Year’s Resolutions

Posted on Jan 3 2013

I had been looking forward to the Christmas-New Year schedule, and suddenly it’s January the Third, and past time for some traditional New Years resolutions! Where did the time go? Such resolutions are often desires to make changes in our lives that we’ve been meaning to do for some time. I do resolve to spend […]

How Did An Alabama Baptist End Up A Cape Cod Anglican?

Posted on Sep 27 2012

I’m told my accent gives me away, which might lead to the title question, and an old high school friend who ‘found’ me online after I came here certainly asked me how I ended up here. The basic answer is that I discovered the rich worship in Anglican liturgy. As a child my mother at […]

Anglican Bishops Call for U.N. Ban on Blasphemy

Posted on Sep 25 2012

As I read the headline reproduced in this blog post’s title, my heart sank. I read the news voraciously and notice when Anglicans get mentioned. It was a response by four bishops from Egypt, Cyprus and the Gulf, North Africa, and the Horn of Africa. It is a response to the wave of protests which […]
