Mind on Tuscaloosa

April 27, 2011 is a date that will not soon be forgotten here in Alabama. The most devastating series of storms in the history of the state. In all, there were nearly 350 deaths across the southeast from the outbreak. Close to 250 of those were in Alabama alone. There isn’t a single person I […]

Back in the Saddle

I’ve often heard that once you’ve done something, you’ll always be able to do it. “Just like riding a bicycle,” or so the saying goes. I really hope this is the case. In a new town, at a new church, with a new pastor, I’m getting back into leading a student ministry. From the ground […]

Finishing.

I feel like I’ve been neglecting the blog for a couple months now. I’ve started several posts about different things, but the priority to finish those hasn’t been incredibly high. I can always go back to wrap them up, and eventually, I will. The reality is that I needed to step away for a few […]
