I have to admit, I’m kind of a sci-fi nerd. Growing up I loved Star Trek, and when I got to college, I fell in love with Star Wars too. Then a couple years ago I was introduced to Doctor Who and my training was complete. But it’s not just the TV shows I like, […]
Recently, the first plane of Syrian refugees arrived in Canada. It landed in Toronto at Pearson International Airport. More will be coming; some will land in Toronto and some in Montreal. In all, the Canadian Government has committed to taking in 25,000 in the coming months, most of whom will likely land in the GTA/Southern […]
I had a conversation with a family member recently, she was talking about the difficulty she was having finding a new rental home for her Girl Guide troop. The problem she was having was that some of the churches she was approaching were asking so much money that the troop couldn’t afford to rent any of […]
Pastors have a 2000 year old job description. In all those years, what we do hasn’t changed in any substantial way.

I was in church a couple weeks ago with a friend of mine who has a background in first century military history and the topic of the shield of faith came up. What he told me woke me right up, and blew my mind. I’m sorry if that sounds like click-bait, but it’s 100% true.
My blog is called “Salt-Seasoned Faith” but what do I mean by that?
There’s an old saying: “If you take the King’s Shilling, you do the King’s bidding.” Essentially, if you work for the king, if he pays your salary, you do what he says. There’s been a lot of chatter online about a certain county clerk in Kentucky. Much has been said about Kim Davis on in […]
I’ve been a dad for a while now. “A while”, of course, is a relative term. My daughter was born four years ago, my oldest son turns two this fall and we just added another son a little over a month ago. So to some who’s parenting experience stretches into the decades and involves dating, […]
