Holy Laughter: A Review of Stuff Christians Like

Acuff, Jonathan. Stuff Christians Like. Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 2010. Admittedly, I was nervous to read this book. I had seen and read my share of in-house Christian satire and found most of it unhelpful, even spiteful. It’s easy to make fun of interpretive dance, church potlucks, framed Bible verses, homeschooling families—all the things that are [...]

Waiting Women

Long long ago… a weary woman went to the well vexed with her worthless life to quench her thirst what a surprise she had  when the Messiah she met who gave her Living water turning her into an evangelist.

Humans, it is cliché but true to assert, are social creatures.

With this as a given, what then do we make of an institution’s deliberate and formal attempt to create community? [...]
