Feeling Restless?

We are truly curious beings. Restless actually, aren’t we? We’re not made to sit still, isolated, disinterested. We like to look for something more and ask the big questions of “why” and “how.” In fact, it’s what keeps us going - it keeps us moving forward. It’s a healthy dissatisfaction, a zest for life and what it can offer. It’s what keeps us alive, both in the most primitive and practical sense, but also in a more existential and teleological sense.

What If This Changes Everything?

Like the rest of us, I don’t know what the future holds with the current crisis we face. We watch the worrying news unraveling day by day–how the coronavirus spreads, what decisions governments are making to try to contain it, the resulting economic hit. Our way of life is being and will continue to be changed.

If Timothy Had Instagram... (Part 4)

“Substance over influence” (1Tim.4:6-16)

I recently got an invite to speak somewhere that made me nervous. I sensed a weight of responsibility and found myself asking whether my inner life matched the opportunity of influence I was being invited into.

If Timothy Had Instagram... (Part 3)

“Your public profile matters” (1Tim.2:8-10; 3:1-13)

This is a big one - possibly the largest challenge and most important theme when it comes to our social media engagement. How you portray yourself publicly matters. The impression you give to others matters.

If Timothy Had Instagram... (Part 2)

“Broaden your social media reach.” (1Tim.2:1-7) 

Recently, we released a podcast discussing social media addiction. There are certainly a lot of challenges in navigating the fast-moving waters of our times, but should we, as followers of Jesus, be part of the online conversation or not?

“We all have a hunger” - that empty feeling inside us, that loneliness, that weight with which our heads hit the pillow at night, when no one else knows. It’s part of being human, as if we’re born with something missing, something beyond us and beyond this world. Sometimes this heartfelt need is expressed in honest art, when an artist is bold enough to speak out.

“Avoid the idle talk, post what really matters.”

Don’t Conform!

Challenging times, these. A lot of what we see in pop culture, mainstream news, the entertainment industry, and our social media feeds promotes views and values that often seem incoherent, void of hope, or immoral. We get confused about what morality even is today, and whether anyone knows right from wrong anymore.

Tradition of Rebels

It was a good year for Imagine Dragons. With their hits “Believer” and “Thunder” earning nearly a billion combined plays between them on Spotify, they are considered 2017’s most successful rock band. Stormzy, king of grime, did alright, too: from his freestyle video filmed on a mobile phone in a park hitting 70 million views on YouTube, to collecting three Mobos, the Q Award for best solo artist, and BBC Music Artist of the Year.

Is a Kitchen Sink Enough?

Twenty One Pilots, Depression and Suicide.


Without a doubt, we’re facing a crisis of purpose, and suicide has become an increasingly more prevalent theme in pop culture. Whether it be Netflix series like “13 Reasons Why,” nihilist meme trends on social media, or the growing number of hit songs addressing it, there’s no doubt this is an issue on our minds.
