Cool: YouTube TV is now available in my area. Not cool: no apps for Roku or Apple TV. Hey Google, call me again when you have support for the platforms I’m invested in!

Positive Politics: Education

Mon, 11 Dec 2017 20:00:06 +0000

None of the topics I’ve teed up for my Positive Politics discussions are easy ones, but in the interests of easing into things I’ll try to take one that’s maybe not super-controversial to start. (Of course, as with anything political, I may be surprised by what becomes controversial.) So let’s talk about education. For my […]

Andrew Sullivan on the Gay Wedding Cake Case

Fri, 08 Dec 2017 14:56:11 +0000

I miss Andrew Sullivan. I’m glad the guy detached a bit – the pace of his daily blogging was incredible, no surprise it wasn’t sustainable – but he has a unique and important voice on issues of our time. So it was no surprise to me that his weekly column addressing the Gay Wedding Cake […]

Positive politics: a little bit of foundation

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 22:00:52 +0000

Before I start in on specific political topics, I want to lay out some foundation that will lie under the specifics. First, I’m a Christian, so my approach is necessarily rooted in Christian values and a belief that the Bible gives us God’s direction for what is best for human flourishing. Second, the Bible provides […]

Thinking in more positive terms about political issues

Wed, 06 Dec 2017 13:41:03 +0000

From time to time over the past year when I’ve been tempted to write political rage posts, it has seemed to me that even though they’d be cathartic, that wouldn’t be all that constructive. And while I haven’t studied political theory or public policy much, writing helps me work through my thinking on issues. So, […]

Really happy for Scott Frost

Sat, 02 Dec 2017 22:54:38 +0000

Really happy for Scott Frost and impressed to see him take UCF to an undefeated season. Will be even happier to see him on the sideline in Lincoln wearing the Big Red N next year.

Unexpected benefits…

Apparently one of the benefits of a social media fast is that my friends start texting me to say hi! It’s been a nice surprise…

Jesus’ Appeal to Human Emotion and Reason

Wed, 29 Nov 2017 13:25:14 +0000

Some really fascinating thoughts from Richard Beck this morning on Jesus’ appeal to human emotion and reasoning as a part of His teaching: Jesus also used human experience as a hermeneutical and theological tool. In Matthew 12 Jesus enters a synagogue on the Sabbath and finds a man with a withered hand. The way the […]

A Social Media Fast

Tue, 28 Nov 2017 16:05:50 +0000

The holidays aren’t typically a time we think of fasting… but it was time. I’ve been a perpetual user of social media for just about as long as that media has existed. I had an account on Facebook they day they opened it up to more than just college students. I was an early adopter […]

I have heard it said…

Tue, 07 Nov 2017 16:31:28 +0000

I have heard right-wing types say, approvingly, that if you’re younger than 30 and not a liberal, you have no heart; and that if you’re older than 30 and not a conservative, you have no brain. However, this tweet captures a sentiment that seems much more true to me: How can anyone over 40 be […]
