The Moment Before

Why is it that, in Exodus, God tells us that

They created the deaf, the mute, and the blind

yet in Leviticus we turn around and push them aside?

Why is it, in Genesis, that God creates

both man AND woman in Their own image

yet we get bogged down in gender roles

and social norms?

Why is it, in Romans, that we can bank

our entire faith on the fact that Abraham

came before Moses

and so are justified by grace alone,

rather than by works,

yet keep trying to earn our salvation

and set up obstacles for others to jump over to do the same?

God is calling all of us into immediate and total reconciliation with Himself.

Are we bold enough to take Him up on His offer?

Easter Blessing: A Look Back at “I Owe Her One”

Today, Nancy and Patrick gave me a picture frame for my “I Owe Her One” poster, designed by Alexandra Denton. First off, thank you guys! It deserves a special place in our house. The wonderful performances by Joseph Cassidy, Dakota Denton, and Deja Hilvert, as well as music by Brad Weinholtz and direction from Zachary Aro launched Our Kind of Awesome into the deep and wonderful world of dramatic filmmaking. Just goes to show you: without the support of friends (and my amazing wife, Katie), no great adventure is possible. Thank you all. Praise Jesus, and happy Easter!
