Breakfast and Jesus: Take It In

In the past week, I've written the majority of a feature length screenplay that I'm working on. I have no idea what I'm doing, but I'm doing it really hard. I didn't get as much work done this weekend as I would have liked to, but that's okay because I was volunteering at a film…

Passionate People

There are few things I love more than going for long drives filled with some major car-singing and deep thoughts. The amount of thinking that takes place while I drive is so overwhelming that it probably isn't safe. I might be a hazard to myself or others on the road. Living in the city makes…

You Can’t Go Forward

I think I'd probably pay someone actual dollars to ensure that the Duck Dynasty discussion doesn't happen, but…

“I Like Your Christ. I Do Not Like Your Christians. Your Christians Are So Unlike Your Christ.” -Gandhi

We sang this really awesome new song by Hillsong at church last Sunday. It's called "To Be Like You," and here's what the entire song pretty much says: Jesus, all I want is to be like you. Shocker. It's an awesome song. It really is. If you're into the contemporary Christian music thing like I…
