Good Christian BitchesJune 9, 2013 · 0 Comments
“It’s really strange man. All they can talk about are GCBs.” I’m confused. I’ve heard this acronym before. It was a TV show or something that got cancelled, and then I remember. “Good Christian Bitches?” “Ha! What?! Noooooo….oh man that’s hilarious! Where’d you come up with that?” “It’s a TV show…I think.” “It stands for
Masculinity: Part 2June 9, 2013 · 0 Comments
“Does she ever remember you?” L.A. leans back, takes a sip of his beer, pauses, and stares off into the distance. He’s remembering something he’s long forgotten. A touch. A smile. Maybe the sound of her laugh. I repeat myself and break his trance. “Your wife…..does she ever remember who you are?” This breaks L.A.

“Did you ever kill anyone?” 10 minutes ago I was greeted by screaming friends and family that looked eerily similar to an episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition minus the tanned guy with perfectly groomed hair and highlights. Back to the question: “So did you ever kill anyone?”
The Biggest Lie I’ve Ever HeardMarch 10, 2013 · 0 Comments
Due to some valid points and concerns raised over this post, I’ve written a follow-up piece you can read here. “LOVE the sinner, but HATE the sin.” I hear that crap-tastic comment tossed around like it’s the mission statement of Christians everywhere for the 21st century. Any time I have students that go out and get hammered
How to be a 5 Star GuyMarch 10, 2013 · 0 Comments
“I’m gonna do it man…..I’m gonna tell her Dad” John says this with a pained nervousness in his voice. “….…this is gonna suck…..” “Yes it will John, but you want to be a man, right? Not some little boy that uses women?” I say this to taunt him. “But Sledge! This will be the first
Help! My Boyfriend’s An Idiot!February 7, 2013 · 0 Comments
My good friend, Chad Swanzy, once told me a story about the time he incredibly failed at being a husband. Chad, along with his beautiful wife and kids were heading out on vacation and were going to have to endure a cross-country trip with young children in the car screaming at the top of their lungs
UnShockable Love – The Disciples or the Crowd? (Audio)November 13, 2014 · 0 Comments
Loving people is hard. Loving messy people is even harder. But God’s greatest demand is that we “Love God and Love people” and his claim is that EVERYTHING (the law and prophets) hinge on this. The Barna Group recently did a study on the attitudes and actions of Christians and whether they look like Christ or
Confessions From Your Pastors (Audio Sermon)August 4, 2014 · 0 Comments
For so long I’ve had the message of performance beat into me. If I want God to love me, then I better do what he says. I better not blow it. And when I stumble he’s just waiting to get me. And the truth is, so many of us have had this message beat into us
LEGACY – Desperately Salty (Audio Sermon)May 27, 2014 · 0 Comments
7 Years ago I was battling through a divorce, depression and anger coming home from Iraq, and slew of other addictions. I was a really hard, hard guy to get along with and was not necessarily the best person to be around. I was out to use and abuse people. But during this time I met
The Phoenix – Rising From the Ashes (Audio)December 31, 2013 · 0 Comments
Growing up I felt I got lied to a lot by the American Church. Everyone was pretty. No one walked into church having marriage issues. No one had porn or alcohol issues. Nope. We were all pretty because what would people think if we actually came clean about where we struggled? Wouldn’t that “blow our
