The End of the Circus

News broke recently, literally racing around the world, that after 146 years the final curtain on the “greatest show on earth” will fall in May. An era has symbolically ended. What does this have to do with church and culture?

Scorsese's Silence

Few would argue that the greatest living film director is Martin Scorsese. And I would argue that his greatest film to date is the newly released and deeply spiritual Silence, a movie I would strongly recommend everyone see.

Meet Generation Z (2017)

I know some are still trying to catch up with Busters, or Generation X, or whatever we called those who followed the Boomers. Or maybe you leapfrogged over all that straight to Generation Y (Millennials). Let me save you some time: Drop everything and start paying attention to Generation Z, who now constitute 25.9% of the U.S. population.

Predictions That Didn't Come True

The Wall Street Journal ran an interesting article recently titled, "10 Media and Advertising Predictions that Didn't Come True in 2016." I don’t know if anyone put forward a similar list of predictions for the interplay of church and culture at the start of last year that have been proven false, but I know of more than a few that were heavily circulating through the corridors of conventional wisdom that we now know have not proven accurate.

Discipleship matters. The goal is not a crowd, but rather a core of committed Christ followers who are fleshing out the life of Christ at work, in their marriage, their parenting, their finances, their thinking, their politics, their… everything.

New Year's Resolutions for You and Your Church (2017)

It’s that time of year again. We make resolutions because we want to bring change to bear on our circumstances. But what would a set of New Year’s resolutions look like for you and your church, your role as a leader, or simply as someone who wants to live a life of strategic Kingdom investment?

The Year (2016) in Review

This is the time to recap the year that was. There are a number of ways to do it, many of which are interesting. You can look at a year in terms of notable deaths, viral events, political rises and falls…. but I would argue for two words: Google searches.

Best Toys Ever (2016)

Wired magazine ran an article on the five best toys ever. Wired is one of the most innovative, bleeding-edge publications you’ll read to learn about all things technological. Which is why, at first, the list surprised me.

Closed for Christmas (2016)

Many churches, finding that Christmas falls on a Sunday this year, are choosing to scale back their services or even cancel them in light of the holiday. For many years, Christmas Eve has been the day of choice for the communal celebration among Christians of the birth of Christ.
