Halloween: Delightful or Diabolical?

It’s that time of year. Leaves falling, temperatures dropping (barely here in the sunshine state), football in full swing, and everything scented or flavored pumpkin. Tagging along with the fall is that delightful or diabolical (depending on your vantage point) holiday known as “Halloween.” It’s the day that causes costume-clad children to rejoice and Bible-belt […]

Why Thursday worship?

Leveled my direction numerous times since our leaders began openly chatting about our new weekend worship gathering this spring has been this inquiry: why Thursday worship? It seems folks can wrap their heads (and hearts) around Saturday worship or an additional service on Sunday evenings, but the thought of gatherings to adore Jesus with His […]

Why this Pastor Loves Atheists

Yes, I do in fact legitimately love atheists. In a culture that has produced and promoted many lies in the name or for the sake of love, perhaps the most glaring is that to love someone is to accept all that he or she is, including beliefs and practices. This is the height of absurdity. […]

When Love is Gone

“What do I do when love isn’t there?” The inquiry came from a young man who approached me after I had pulled the pin and chucked the grenade of the “love chapter” during my Sunday sermon. The thought-provoking, soul-convicting body of 1 Corinthians 13 had apparently thumped a nerve with this gent prompting him to […]

Seven Ways to Father Well

For the first couple years of being a dad my running mantra to other fathers was: “Here’s what I think…but then again I’ve been a father for about 5 minutes.” My advice, however solid, foolish, or naive, always came with it a disclaimer. I had forever chuckled at parental advice from those without children, and […]

Confidence, Vision and Hope for the Future

I still vividly recall a specific moment during my junior year of high school basketball. We were playing a rival school to our north and I had been in a shooting slump all game. Nothing felt right, and as I adjusted my shooting mechanics, and the ball continued to evade the hoop, my confidence plummeted […]

When My Heart is Overwhelmed

On Sundays I have begun a journey with my church family through scenes from the life of David. This means that much of my week has been spent studying the grand king of the Jews and immersing myself in the Psalms he composed. I love his adoration, confessions, Divine descriptions, desperate attestations, and his raw […]

BLDG 28 is merging…

I would like, for just a moment, to lay before you a picture. Imagine with me a military company, bedecked in weaponry and trained for battle. The force has a boldly declared objective and a clearly defined mission. Stretched before the company is a path that leads them ever forward as they march toward that […]

Answering the Call of Church Planting

Through a collection of eclectic ragamuffins, naive to the grit of Gospel-planting, disenchanted with “the way church had become,” and boldly impassioned to see north Pinellas and the greater Tampa Bay Area reached with the message of legit Christianity, God birthed BLDG 28 in the spring of 2011. With a name that more closely resembled […]

Condemnation and Affection?

“How could a loving God condemn…?” The email inquiry came from a concerned mother. It was not at all a new question but the subject matter stilll caused me to bite my lower lip as the angst of that mother is shared deeply by this father. In a culture that adores, preaches, and rationalizes from […]
