Greg always says that when you travel overseas you need to shave your head (he says it’s so you don’t have to worry about your hair getting knappy, but I think it’s just to look cool 😉 So, Kristy, Nance, and I had a farewell party to my hair…

March 25th, 2004 by Jason · Comments Off on power point fluff

I have been spared power point fluff for the most part during my life. In college I only had a few teachers who used it (and it was mildly helpful in those classes since the teacher talked a mile a minute).

They took the Scriptures […]

naked before the Lord

March 1st, 2004 by Jason · Comments Off on naked before the Lord

It’s important that I love myself. Sound like a blurb from a self-help book? Or the mantra of pop-psychology? Certainly not the topic of a sermon in an evangelical church. Why do Christians, and especially evangelicals, react so strongly against the need to love oneself? The idea is met with skepticism, raised eyebrows, and sometimes […]
