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.

Worthy are the Worthless

Sometimes I like to get down on myself. I like to just go through certain periods and really, REALLY tell myself that I’m a miserable failure, a mess, and that I’m just going to die alone in a desert. I mean, I’m an awful sinner who constantly falls short of my goals and God’s, so…

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 – Trying

I get emails sometimes about this little column. Quite a few, actually. Some people write me and tell me about how they enjoyed what I wrote, and people write me and call me a blithering idiot because I mis-read some scripture or that my entire premise behind a column was flawed. But sure enough, they…

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…

Spiritual – March 2013

By Kendall D. Aaron Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. –Proverbs 3:5-6 So I’m not getting any younger. I asked my grandfather one time what it feels like to be 84, and…
