Diversity in Comics

And comics media (shows/movies/etc). Today’s short post is brought to you by the new Captain Marvel trailer. Kind of. It’s been something I’ve been thinking of doing for a while, but some of the reaction to the trailer is what made me decide to do it. So last week Marvel dropped the first trailer for […]

Some worship, a sermon, and some Veggie Tales

Today’s short post is brought to you by things that have been just absolute grace-filled piledrivers for me over the last few days. It’s sometimes the little things that do it (the piledriving), and other times its just the overwhelming reminder of how much the Lord loves us that does it. So here are the things […]

Being Gracious (short post)

Unrelatedly, as I write this, the Zeo Rangers just teamed up with Alien Rangers (the first time Power Rangers could adapt the traditional team up from the Sentai) to fight a gear and a purse monster. Good ol tuesday morning’s on the bus. Onto the post proper. My really cool cousin posted the scripture up-top the other […]

Coffee With Jesus

“Coffee with Jesus” by David Wilke (and the Radio Free Babylon team) is an online comic I first stumbled upon in TPB (trade paperback) form about 5 years ago at the Today’s Teens Conference and bought it on a whim. It wasn’t until a couple of years later that I actually started to read it, […]

God’s Will – Pastor Steve Lambert

What is God’s will for my life?  Have you ever asked that question?  It often comes up in times of upheaval, when we are faced with change or a significant choice that we must make.  When we don’t know what to do, we stop and wonder what God wants.  Sometimes God makes it quite clear […]

No real post, just some plugs

Things have been MAD busy lately, and mostly in a good way. Jill and I got a house (pretty sure I mentioned that), so we’ve been moving and painting and between the house and the apartment. I left one of my two jobs to focus on the other – where praise God, things have been […]

Being Thankful round 2 (FIGHT!!)

I could *not* resist putting that ‘FIGHT’ there. Seriously, as I was coming up with the title I could not stop hearing it (especially in that Mortal Kombat voice (MOORRTAAAALLL KOMBAT!!! Dodododododododo))… Anyways, as I write this I am listening to a strange mix of Metallica and the Montreal Jubilation Gospel Choir, and it is getting […]

A collection of thoughts

So its been a very busy time recently – I got a second job, I’m trying to expand my horizons (job and hobby wise), been sick, had the blessing of being part of a wedding for my awesome brother in law Caleb and his wonderful wife Abbey (wooo new sister in law!). Been posting on […]

Sometimes, we need to lay down our rights and put others first.

This isn’t going to be a long post, it’s something that just kinda hit me while doing a lecture with Gordon Conwell this morning after the speaker (Dr McDonough) addressed it: we need to measure our rights (and entitlements, as these often go hand in hand unfortunately) and put them behind/below our love for others. […]

Pray for our leaders

This is probably gonna be a short post. So this week, premier Kathleen Wynne announced that minimum wage in Ontario will be increased to $14 come January of 2018, and then $15 in January of 2019. The reaction to it has been mixed. A lot of people at my work making minimum wage are thrilled. Others […]
