Garments of Salvation

Another in my series for Quivering Daughters “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of […]

Modern Medicine (The Doctor Song): Rare Video!

Here’s a little treat for those who enjoy the sillier side of my music. “The Doctor Song” was composed many years ago and has often provoked laughter from unsuspecting audiences, but some have denied its existence since there was no recorded proof of it. Last weekend at a party for artists at a friend’s house […]

"Quivering Daughters" Around the Web

“Quivering Daughters” Around the Web

I expect most of my readers are already somewhat familiar with Hillary McFarland's beautiful book and website Quivering Daughters, to which I've been honored to contribute as a writer. It addresses the spiritual and emotional abuses of women and children in the "Biblical Patriarchy" movement, though even people with no experience in that particular movement […]

Return of the Christian Album Covers!

Return of the Christian Album Covers!

Just when you thought it was safe to go to the thrift store…. They’re back!  Yes, you remember those hilariously horrible old Christian album covers I found in one of my old silly posts? Unbelievably tacky pictures from a bygone era of people who were trying to be really cool, and failing dismally, and thinking they succeeded? […]

Cause and Effect

Now pay attention, children: if you practice the piano just 20 minutes every day, do you know what will happen?… …You will grow up to be humiliated by a second grader. (Tip-o'-the-hat: 22 words.)

Recommended Reading: Have a Nice Doomsday!

(A Round-up of Several Good Posts on the Phony Rapture Prediction and What To Do About It) As you've probably heard, self-styled "prophet" Harold Camping and his organization Family Radio have spent massive time and money publicizing the notion that the Lord is coming back on May 21, 2011!

The Things We Want to Sing About

The Things We Want to Sing About

This is my contribution to Rachel Held Evans’ Rally to Restore Unity. Read about it at the link. Augustus Toplady was, frankly, a bit of a jerk. He was an evangelical Anglican clergyman with a strong Calvinist bent. If he lived today he’d certainly be one of those Calvinists, the kind who write annoyingly combative blogs ranting […]
