Tomorrow is finally our last day of school which means that summer will finally feel like it’s really here.  Unlike our friends in the south and pretty much anywhere but New York, our kids finish school pretty much at the end of June.  But we’ll take it and the end of school officially means the […]

David Alex Perrin. The one who introduces me to new things, who brings out my best, who pushes me farther than I ever thought I was capable of going, who drags me out of every comfort zone I have ever created for myself, who cheers for and encourages me, who teaches me about J, and […]

Oh, and Another Thing

The original language copies of both Jewish and Christian Scriptures exist in quantities that put Homer so far at the back of he bus that he needs a belt to stay connected to the handle on the outside of the rear exit. OK that’s colorful, but reasonably accurate. The ratio has multiple zeroes. The original […]

I lived in Santa Monica for close to one month.  This is where I ran back to God.  The first time we met, I was in college.  We were briefly acquainted many years ago when I first started getting fever blisters and my brothers would pick on me mercilessly. Standing at my window looking outside […]

June 26,  2019 – JC Angelcraft – Today in history I recall my first rescue of a dog.  I was a little boy who wanted a dog and so I found a stray dog and made a closed area for him inside our apartment.  When my mother got home, she said I could not keep […]

When I was growing up, my parents were diligent about teaching us to memorize Scripture. Memorization was easy for me and my mom always made it fun, so even as an adult I still have a significant amount of Scripture left in my memory. I always intended to do the same with my kids. I […]

Having a designated “Mass bag” can be a game-changer for many families. But once you have one, what should you put in it? Maybe last week you optimistically packed a Matchbox car or puzzle, only to have your two-year-old launch it as a projectile three pews in front of you. Deep breaths, mom and dad. […]

Five hundred years after the artist’s death, Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper has continued to inspire both believers and non-believers alike. The artwork seems to have tapped into in our collective consciousness. How so?  One of the least explored and under-acknowledged elements of the artwork is that it was painted on a wall.

Text: More than 3500 people at  Scottsdale Bible Church are reading through the New Testament together over 8 weeks.

These are three stories, all supposedly true events, which are often repeated separately with pride by many Scholars as a proof of virtues of women and the kindness of the Messenger of God.

My roommate and I have experienced movies with Vin Diesel as the lead unintentionally. We stumbled across parts of the Chronicles of Riddick and XXX while channel surfing a few weeks apart. Our conclusions were similar. There is no fucking way this guy should star in a movie. I don’t want to look at him. […]
