Like me, I’m sure you’ve lost many hours of sleep wondering why NASA only ever launched space shuttles from Cape Canaveral, Florida. Space is up, right?  I don’t think I’m wrong about that.  If you ask a person to point to outer space, they’ll start by pointing up.  So in terms of getting from Earth to […]

I like meditating on details in the familiar stories of Scripture.

**–originally written for publication on another platform.  I’m not sure if it will ever run there, so I’m posting it here so that it can at least see the light of day.  Also: I am radically unqualified to write on this topic.

**Originally for publication elsewhere.  I’m not sure if it will end up getting used on that platform, so I’m putting it here just to let it see the light of day.**   One of the fun ways that American evangelicalism has served the global church- and I use the phrase “served” with as much sarcasm […]
