Coming Soon: A Biblical Response to Witchcraft

Concordia Publishing House was gracious enough to invite me to work on another tract, which will be coming out mid-October. Fittingly enough, this one is A Biblical Response to Witchcraft. From CPH: No fairy tale fantasy, witchcraft is a real, contemporary practice that has been growing in popularity over the past decades. Whether driven toContinue reading “Coming Soon: A Biblical Response to Witchcraft”

Tuesday’s Tidings: October 5, 2021

Watching: Amadeus (1984) Jonathan and I watched the classic film Amadeus recently. It definitely took some liberties with the historical reality of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s relationship with fellow-composer, Antonio Salieri. But it was a really good movie. I loved the costumes and the just overall “look” of the movie. And at a stout three hours,Continue reading “Tuesday’s Tidings: October 5, 2021”

Matt Richard’s Minute Messages: A Great Devotional Resource

I wanted to write a quick note about Rev. Dr. Matthew Richard’s newest book, Minute Messages: Gospel-Filled Devotions for Every Occasion. I had the joy of reading an advance copy in order to write an endorsement for the book’s inside cover. I’m a big fan of Pastor Richard’s (you can check out his blog, PMContinue reading “Matt Richard’s Minute Messages: A Great Devotional Resource”

As always, it was such an honor to write for CPH and I had aContinue reading “A Simple Explanation of Angels”

Tuesday Tidings: September 14, 2021

Sorry for the lack of posts lately! A combination of a migraine attack and a glut of work knocked me out of my rhythm, but I’m more or less back to normal now. What I’m Reading: A Shepherd Looks at Psalm 23 by W. Phillip Keller. I’ve been working through this little book on everyone’sContinue reading “Tuesday Tidings: September 14, 2021”

Tuesday’s Tidings: August 10 2021

This week, I’ll be starting a new weekly post on Tuesdays. It’ll be brief, just an overview of what I’m up to, enjoying, and thinking about. This week’s focus is settling in. We moved for Jonathan’s vicarage (like an internship) a couple of weeks ago. The boxes and whatnot are all unpacked (and have beenContinue reading “Tuesday’s Tidings: August 10 2021”

Tune Your Harps to Cheerful Strains

There’s a famous dictum that comes out of the early days of coding and computer building: garbage in, garbage out. In its original context, it had to do with a phenomenon where poor input data resulted in flawed outputs. Growing up, though, I heard it most often applied to music, of all things. Most ofContinue reading “Tune Your Harps to Cheerful Strains”

Where have you been?

If you are reading this blog post, there is a good chance you have noticed (or are now realizing) that I have gone on a rather protracted hiatus from writing on this blog. You may well be asking, “Where have you been?”, a question I have been posing to myself a lot over the pastContinue reading “Where have you been?”

A poem (or hymn) from the evening

I made myself a little corner of quiet the other night and wrote a little poem, or hymn, depending upon how you look at it. I hope that it gives you a moment of comfort, consolation, and peace. My Lord has written His sweet nameUpon my feeble heart;His promise every day the same:Never from meContinue reading “A poem (or hymn) from the evening”
