The Genuine Jesus

I spent some quality time with my buddy Photoshop a few weeks ago, and this is what came out. It’s a title graphic for the series we recently started on Sunday mornings at the Front Porch called (as you can see) “Rav Yeshua: The Genuine Jesus.” I struggled with the choice of image to represent […]

Bridezilla of Christ

I’ve had weddings on the brain lately. Mainly, because four couple-friends of mine recently asked me to marry them. But also because two new bridal shops just opened on the same block as the print shop where I work (in addition to the two already in our neighborhood.) Occasionally I’ll wonder what it’s like to […]

Dogma

I’ll admit to being way behind on this one, but I just saw the 1999 film Dogma for the first time last night, 11 years after the Catholic League boycotted it, and 10 years after the controversy was completely forgotten (as it always is… think about the anti-semitism accusations surrounding The Passion of the Christ.) […]

ALL NEW Wednesdays!

So the FroPo has been closed for a few weeks (although, during that time we’ve had three Sunday Gatherings, two going-away parties, a birthday party and a generalized get-together. Maybe “closed” is the wrong word.) At any rate, most of our normal weekly activities have been on break, along with the students. But before we […]

Reality Calling

“Why don’t you stay here with me?” “Why? Because you’re not Real.” So goes a dream-state dialogue toward the end of the movie Inception, starring Leonardo DiCaprio. Although I’m not an avid movie watcher, I have noticed a recurring question amongst psychological thrillers lately; the question of: “What is Real?” Another example is provided by […]

Magic Phrases

I have two feet firmly planted in two different occupations. One is what they call a “day-job” where I’m the production manager and graphic designer at Traders Printing. The other is my a-vocational ministry, where I’m the pastor of The Core Fellowship. One thing they have in common is the importance of really good communication. […]

Community Christmas Dinner

This Saturday, December 4, represents The Core Fellowship’s first big multi-church project. We’re teaming up with Emmaus Church, Canvas Church (both downtown) and East Sunshine Church of Christ to put on a big Community Christmas Dinner at the Veridian Event Center (a brand new place across the street from the Front Porch.) It’s a gorgeous […]

When a W’s not a W

I have the rather dubious honor of calling myself a Kansas City Chiefs fan. As of yesterday, we have earned 5 W’s, and 4 L’s, and yesterday’s L was a particularly difficult one, seeing as how we gave the W to the Denver Broncos, of all teams, and we allowed them to do it with […]

Don’t Call the Pot Black

Special interest groups are throwing around millions of dollars of secret money to drag each others’ candidates through the mud. But California might LEGALIZE POT! Probably the most interesting issue of the upcoming election is marijuana. It’s just a shame that only a fraction of the population gets to vote on it. Because, unlike most […]
