Reconstructing My Heart

I honestly don’t know what’s happening to me these days. But something is going on. I reached out and talked to the man who was my adversary after my fall, Phillip Townsend. We made up after I humbled myself. I’ve written letters to my former in-laws and apologized to them. After my fall, they were all very angry with me,… Read more »

I Hate Humility, But I Love Transformation

So much has happened in the past week. Just when I think my story is over, something else happens. I just can’t believe this is happening to me. But, it is. I blogged about dreams last time. I haven’t had a good dream in over a year. I had one last night. I’ll get to that some other time. Cynthia… Read more »

My Weird Dreams And A Hope For Reconciliation

Dreams. They’re weird for me. Always have been. I don’t have normal ones. Maybe you do. If you do, you’re lucky. I’ve got several theories about how they work and I’ll get to them in a minute. Theory means that I don’t have a clue why or what dreams are. I have several recurring dreams that have nothing to do… Read more »

The Difficulties Of Writing

I’ve always loved writing. Ever since I wrote an extremely short story in first grade called “George Washington and the Purple Polka Dotted Measles,” I learned that writing was in my blood. My mother wrote a lot and was published. She wasn’t nationally known by any means, but she did it for the enjoyment and to help others. She encouraged… Read more »

Everything Else Follows Preaching

Cynthia and I visited the church of a pastor friend of mine today. We’ve been there before. Angel Falls is a nice town. I would leave here, but Angelica and the kids are still here. I’ve told you before and I’ll tell you again – Angelica and I have a great relationship after the divorce. We get along better now… Read more »

Book Writing . . . Maybe

I’ve met about 150 people in my life who were “writing a book.” Know how many of them got published? Two. Both of them were self-published. Good for them. Except no one ended up buying books from them except their family. Anyway, I’m writing a book. I’m sure it’ll turn into absolutely nothing except a huge waste of time. It’ll… Read more »

Tale Of Three Churches

A quick update before I start rambling – Angelica and the girls finally moved out of the parsonage at Angel Falls Baptist. She stayed there almost a whole year after I got caught. Which is great for her, I guess. We actually get along wonderfully. People ask me frequently how we get along. “Great,” I’ll say. “Better than we did… Read more »

The Hypocrisy of the Sunday School Lesson

I’ve been thinking too much lately. Blame the medication. Blame my never ending search for a church to join. Or just blame the cynicism that is inherent within me. I’ve been thinking about the faulty way we read Scripture. It’s worse than I thought. I’m just as guilty as anyone. Maybe worse. Even worse than when I pastored. I think… Read more »
