Dear Dr. King

A favorite memory of mine–among many with Dr. King–was his annual Christmas party, my sophomore year at Montreat. We were doing the normal things English majors do at any Christmas party: namely debating and discussing our favorite literature and playing “Guess the Famous Author” over a delicious spread of cheesecake, ice cream, and coffee. It […]

New Assumptions

A large number of churches in America have lost their way in worship.  This is due to a regrettable level of biblical and theological ignorance concerning the history and patterns of Christian worship practices.  We are without excuse regarding this lack of knowledge and it has resulted in obliviousness.  The history of our worship is […]

The tattoo artist, sleeved from wrist to shoulder in his own art, was no stranger to first-timers, and quickly fell into a comfortable rhythm of joking and intense concentration.

Film Review: The Artist

When was the last time you played charades?  That’s the party game in which players take turns miming a word to their team.  Were you any good at it?  I gave it my best shot and was still mediocre.  Miming had its origin in ancient Greek theatre where an occasional silent character acted only with a mask and gestures.  […]

Film Review: Captains Courageous

“They don’t make them this good anymore.”  How we like to say that and hear others say it.  Babe Ruth set his homerun record without steroids.  Rock music of the 1960s was the most original.  The golden era was the best; technical advancements have spoiled audiences for the grand old style.   That is how […]
