I like fiction. I enjoy reading novels as much as the next guy (okay, probably more than the next guy). And not just novels, but plays, poems, you name it. Fiction is a huge industry -- has been for centuries. People love stories, and they especially adore stories whic...

"Summertime,

And the livin' is easy;

Fish are jumpin'

And the cotton is high"

So wrote Dubose Heyward in 1934 in lyrics set to music by George Gershwin for 1935's Porgy and Bess. Those words stood for a mythic, lazy summertime, those three all-too-short months wherein we c...

My first real update to the church blog is about my favorite Bible verse, John 1:14: "The Word became flesh and dweltamong us, and we have seen his glory, the glory of the only-begotten Son of the Father, full of grace and truth." The Word, of course, is Jesus Christ....

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. Shortly thereafter, humans invented blogging.
