I can’t tell if I write about theology or if this has suddenly become a travel blog, but let me fill you in on my last weekend in Scotland. My wife and I (along with John and Logan from this blog) made our way up to Scotland for a few days to catch up and […]
With only seven years of church ministry experience, I never saw myself as an expert in anything. If anything, I’m barely starting to hit a stride with my church! By the grace of God, I was invited to speak at the 4th annual Asian American Ministry Conference at Biola University. The topic that I was […]
My wife and I moved to the UK about a month ago and it is going brilliantly. I started a PhD program at Durham and will be here for the next few years. Although my wife and I have been out of the country before, we have never moved to another county. It is quite […]
St. John of Damascus penned the Treatises on the Divine Images in response to iconoclasm which swept across the Byzantine Empire under Emperor Leo III. Throughout his three treatise, St. John of Damascus works to distinguish veneration from worship, and he justifies icons imaging Jesus and the saints. As a modern reader the distinction between […]
How’s your relationship with God? It’s a question many Christians and religious people ask of each other. When I answer this question over the years, I typically work my way through the same cluster of questions—am I praying and spending private time with God, am I avoiding certain sins, am I maturing in my likeness to […]
I was an athlete growing up, extremely competitive both then and now, and never gave up during any sort of competitive setting no matter how dire the situation was.

This fall, God has been generous, and I have been angry. So this was a helpful week. Here’s what I’ve learned, […]
John M.G. Barclay, ‘Food, Christian Identity and Global Warming: A Pauline Call for a Christian Food Taboo’, The Expository Times 121 (2010): 585-93. Over the past couple years I have repeatedly returned to the article listed above. Not because I forget about the main point, but because I find it incredibly compelling. I just keep […]
I just came back from a week-long missions vision trip in the Philippines. It was a whirlwind of a trip, traveling to a new place everyday, but it was a great time of encouragement and eating, meeting and worshipping with other believers from different places. While the Philippines has recently been in the news, due to […]
This past year, I had the privilege to attend the popular Drive Conference hosted by North Point Ministries. It was a time for my colleagues and I to travel and enjoy a wonderful time together. This was my first time in Atlanta, first time experiencing true southern hospitality, and first time experiencing the famous Waffle […]
