On Mission for Christmas (2017)

Toys “R” Us wants you for Christmas. The company indeed went into action and the question simply became, “How big can we make this?” Which led me to wonder, how big can we make Christmas? Or, more specifically, Christmas Eve?

A Tweet's Glance into Culture

There are many ways to gain a quick snapshot into culture. One of the more revealing ways is to look at what has trended – or is trending – on Twitter. So for a crash course in all things “now,” check out this sampling of Twitter’s most popular tweets and accounts of 2017.

Your Child on Facebook

In case you haven’t heard, there’s a new Facebook app for children called Messenger Kids, targeted for children ages 13 and under. It asks parents to give their approval so that their child can message, add filters and doodle on photos they send to other children. It’s a clear play for a new generation. It’s also a time to ask some clear questions for a new generation of parenting.

The Rise of the Digisexual

In "Meet Generation Z," I wrote that one of the defining marks of Generation Z was the embrace of sexual fluidity. Since then, a new cultural dictionary has exploded onto the scene dealing with all things sexual such as the rise of the “digisexual.”

The Six Laws of Technology

There is a fascinating article in the Wall Street Journal titled “The Six Laws of Technology Everyone Should Know.” It is based on the writings of Melvin Kranzberg, a professor of the history of technology at Georgia Institute of Technology. They have become legendary among technologists, serving as something of a Hippocratic oath for all people who build things. It’s a fascinating list and worth thinking about deeply.

The Googled Mind

Few would be surprised to learn that Google handles 90% of all internet searches. What would be news to many is that – according to journalist Jack Nicas – the internet giant is increasingly “presenting itself as the authority on truth by promoting a single search result as the answer.” And those results are often wrong.

Thankful for the Fleas (2017)

The barracks where Corrie ten Boom and her sister, Betsy, were kept in the Nazi concentration camp Ravensbruck were terribly overcrowded and flea-infested. They had been able to miraculously smuggle a Bible into the camp, and in that Bible they had read that in all things they were to give thanks and that God can use anything for good. Betsy decided that this meant thanking God for the fleas.

The Declined Debate

I was recently asked to be on a national radio program debate that would pit being “seeker sensitive” against other models of church outreach. They wanted me to be the “seeker guy.” I declined. There were many reasons why.

What Real Men Should Do

Let’s talk porn, shall we? It dominates the lives of too many men (and not a few women), sabotaging the sexual lives they share with their spouses. It degrades and objectifies women. It injects spiritual Novocain into their souls, deadening them spiritually.

The Call for Public Intellectuals

I had the privilege of speaking last week to a gathering of the entire faculty and staff at Colorado Christian University (a terrific school with an on-target new president) on the importance of developing a mind for God. I ended with what might seem like a surprising challenge: don’t be academics! Or, more to the point, don’t just be academics.
