In February 2001, an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer entitled “The Body” aired. It was the episode in which Buffy had to deal with the fact that her mother had died, and she found the body, and it was a devastating, amazing episode.
That episode had a particular resonance for me, because I ha...Read more of this blog post »

My heart is still so full with this book, which I genuinely believe is the best time to write this review. It is about so much in our world, even though it is fantasy. It follows a stereotypically Hero’s Journey trajectory, yet adds a lot to the genre. And the characters are pretty much sure to s...Read more of this blog post »
We didn't bother to dress up for it, but we did get Lilie a pirate bandana, and she loved the attention wearing it got her. Here are a couple of photos of her wearing it:

You realize, of course, that when we hit the Top 20 in these poll results that I’ll be doing a board book a day. Woohoo! Can’t wait for that to begin. Then again, there’s much to be said for these countdowns by 5s. Where else could you find such an eclectic array? Starting, of course, with this o...Read more of this blog post »
The fear of men losing their jobs because of automation has continued since the dawn of the industrial revolution. Even in our lifetime, robotic counterparts are replacing human workers and jobs are being lost.
Can you imagine the fear this must have instilled in the man of 1860 who made his lif...Read more of this blog post »

This is a post about Brexit.
I didn’t mean to write it, honest.
But I keep on having nightmares.
Proper waking at 6 a.m. cold sweats.
And because my brain is wired to write, I know sometimes that I’ll only get back to sleep if I do that.
So here we are. Sorry….
My night-terrors keep on spinning round...Read more of this blog post »

Traktat przeciwko marchewce
Już samo istnienie czegoś tak potwornego jak marchew stanowi niezwyciężony oręż w rękach ateistów. Marchew, jej sataniczna obecność na stołach i w warzywniakach bezdyskusyjnie przeczy istnieniu miłosiernego Stwórcy troszczącego się o dobro swego stworzenia. Co najw...Read more of this blog post »

I’m out of town again, speaking at the Virginia Public Library (that’s in Minnesota, not the east coast) and spending some time with the dogs in a cabin on a lake.

We have rightly described church planters as risk takers.
They start churches. They often have little funding. They typically have no building to begin with. Many have no members at the onset.
So, church planting is indeed inherently risky.
But I would argue that church revitalization must be risky...Read more of this blog post »
