Great to see you, how are you? Oh, on second thought, I don’t actually care. As a pastor, public speaker person, and one who loves engaging in community building, I love talking to people. I enjoy hearing about their experiences[…]

Back in the day, Saturday morning was for cartoon watching, but alas, times are a changing and it’s all video clips all the time. So if you harken back for those days and you don’t happen to be one of those “consultant”[…]

UPDATE: Didn’t even make it a week. Typical. *SMH* Every year about this time, bloggers, photographers, and others embark on a journey of sharing a thought, an image or a prayer each day of the year. And while I have no[…]

Q: Should all of My Social Media Usernames be the Same? A: YES!!!!!!!! On first glance it seems a little silly to think too much about the names we use for Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, etc., but if you are serious –[…]

If you are in any way connected to the mainline-emergent-hipster-people-of-color-post-evangelical-christian world, you have probably caught a whiff of the kerfuffle that Christian Piatt started with his Top 25 Christian Blogs You Should Be Reading results: Readers’ Choice and Editor’s Picks.

Holy moley there are a ton of social media sites out there! Seriously, how the heck can anyone keep up with them all? After all, some of you church types have to do things like visit people in the hospital[…]

Props to my friend and colleague Tom Hay, who staffs the Presbyterian Church (USA)’s biennial  national gathering, General Assembly, and  for his openness to post this.

A few weeks ago at one of my “offices” – we’ll just call it Philz Coffee on 24th and Douglas in Noe Valley in San Francisco – when logging onto the wireless network, a different window popped up. As one who[…]
