3 Non-Vocal Reasons I Love Voctave

If you haven’t heard the a cappella group Voctave, you need to.  Seriously. This group “happens” to have some of the same singers as the Voices of Liberty from EPCOT. (There’s legal reasons for the distinction, I’m sure.) As a listener, I...
Our Thoughts on Modern Hymns

Our Thoughts on Modern Hymns

There are a lot of opinions flying around these days about what constitutes a hymn. Because I write, study, and speak about music, I frequently come across questions about what hymns are and whether we can write and sing modern hymns in the church today. I’d like to...

I’m Not Afraid to Admit It

Is it hard for you to admit you’re wrong about something? It can be for me, but over the years I’ve learned that its easier just to be honest if something comes up. Many of you know that I have grown increasingly suspicious of social media, especially...
3 Reasons I’m Excited About Millennials

3 Reasons I’m Excited About Millennials

Bashing Millennials has become a favorite pastime. Just today I was scrolling social media and came across an ad for a “dry bar comic.” His entire 5 minute mini-routine consisted of making fun of the generation born between the early 1980’s and the late 1990’s. I know...
Hezekiah, the Times, and Gandalf

Hezekiah, the Times, and Gandalf

In family devotions last week, I went over the story of Hezekiah. He had been a godly king, and had established a tremendous track record. But now he lies dying. Isaiah tells him to put his affairs in order. Hezekiah cries out to the Lord and begs for more time. God...

The Exodus Starts Today.

The Exodus Starts Today.

We’re doing something that may cost us in the short-term. Social media has incredible upsides. We all know this. The grand-daddy of them all, Facebook, has done an incredible job of intertwining itself with the fabric of life. Facebook made it easy and free (at...

BAM! Books-a-Million

Sometimes you just need to find a place where you can relax. The local BAM (Books-a-Million) is one of those places for me. Home is great to be sure; but sometimes you want the feeling of being “out somewhere” in order to get your mind refreshed. A lot of...
Word Studies: At Their Best When Coupled with Context

Word Studies: At Their Best When Coupled with Context

One of my favorite tools for digging into the Word is the simple word study. It was the first Bible study method my dad taught me. I can still remember hours spent at the kitchen table with Strong’s Concordance and a couple of commentaries. It was the first book...
