I’ve been reading Thomas Kuhn’s The Structure of Scientific Revolutions and realizing it’s applicability to the ongoing conversation regarding Biblical truth. Kuhn was no philosopher or theologian, he was a scientist, but he proposed scientific paradigms should be allowed to change through a term he coined as “paradigm shifts.” A paradigm shift would occur when […]

The Biggest Temptation of the Modern Christian is Self Righteousness

I am grateful Jesus didn’t intimidate people with his righteousness. When Jesus left his home land (saying a prophet is not honored in his own home) he went to Galilee. And do you know why the Galileans accepted Him? It was because they’d been at a feast with Him, at a wedding party, and at […]

Every decade or so, the Scottish band The Trascan Sinatras release another album.

The classical violinist Stephen Nachmanovitch, in his book Free Play says that Perhaps the most radical sociopolitical invention of the past four thousand years was the sabbath. I think he’s right.  I often sit for hours at my desk without a break through. And then on a walk, it will come to me. Creativity is […]

How a Consumer Thinks
Donald Miller

I’ve written a great deal this year about the way of a creator, but the creator has a journey of thought a creator has to go through, and that journey begins as a consumer. There is also a middle territory, and that territory has us playing the critic. A consumer wakes from their ways and […]
