The King’s Presence is Like the Sun

If that offends you, please just move on.] Sometimes I feel that Christians miss a lot of the point of their faith because we live in a democracy.

Hidden Geeks

There’s been a lot of talk about geeks and the term geek. Some people think that we throw it around too loosely and we attribute “geek” to anything with fake glasses.

The Myth of Hollywood

I’ve been thinking a lot about Hollywood these days. Especially since my commute to work dumps me out at Hollywood/Highland – arguably the most tourist-trappiest part of Hollywood you can ever hope to visit.
