I’ve Seen It All

Dear Sam, I freaking hate going to church because they’re all a bunch of hypocritical pricks. Talk to me. – Signed, almost everybody I meet who knows I went to seminary As they trained me to say when I started raising money for charities, “I agree, I understand.” You always start from a place of…

The Earth Is Flat

I grew up Southern Baptist. Looking back on it, I sort of chuckle. Ladies with big hair setting up the potluck, men always in suits that would say “AMEN” at the end of songs that the choir would sing. But no clapping for some unknown reason. Drinking was for the Catholics, dancing was from the…

NO F***ING GOOD

One of my all time favorite movies is “Scent of a Woman”, starring Al Pacino as a blind veteran that lost his eyesight when he was drunk and start fooling around with a hand grenade. Since his accident, he basically spends the majority of his time sitting in his daughter’s guest house on her property…

Fix Me

My friend Johnny talks to God all the time. He doesn’t do this in the ways that you might think he is “talking” with God such as prayer or devotionals, but he really, REALLY talks to God. Someone will ask him to make a big decision, or they could be asking him to go to…

I Sin

I sin. No, scratch that. I sin a WHOLE lot. Constantly. Every day. All the time. No, I’m not a bad person; I’m just honest about my sin. I understand what it is, and I am resigned that despite every best effort, I will invariably forever be a wretched sinner (and we all are). But,…

God and I Talk A Lot

God and I talk a lot.  That doesn’t mean that I always do as I’m supposed to, or that I even listen sometimes, but we are at least talking.  And for me anyway, that’s important. I was sitting beside the lake not too long ago, and was lying on the dock in the dead of…

Spiritual

Dear Heavenly Father, Please be with me. Please let me feel your presence, and please throw your arms around me and hold me for a little while. I can feel so powerless sometimes, and I need the reminder that you are holding my hand as I make this walk through life. Every time I turn…

Spiritual – Have Faith

You can’t walk on water unless you get out of the boat. This little saying is used in countless circumstances, and describes pretty well the emotions we all feel when taking on a difficult task, or making the choice to do, well, most anything that’s hard. And, obviously, in a spiritual sense, it’s a great…

Art – Said Passion To Death

Ingram, who has found success in a number of different media including illustration, oil painting, and large scale murals, has found passion in his sculpture work. Son of a US Air…

Spiritual – June 2013

Weak = Strong By Kendall D. Aaron | kendall@hillcountryexplore.com So I have a counselor that I see every other week or so. He prays with me and helps me look at problems from a very Christian perspective. I find it highly beneficial to me. Yes, even Christians need help dealing with issues sometimes. There was…

Spiritual – May 2013

But… I’m Perfect By Kendall D Aaron | kendall@hillcountryexplore.com King David was one of the baddest dudes in the Bible. This guy took on Goliath with a slingshot when he was still a young man. He became one of Israel’s most celebrated soldiers, and everyone knew that you wanted David as your wingman if you were…
