Follow-Up to "When Complacency Is Complicity"
Preparing Your Children for the One True Fairy Tale
A recent article I wrote on the late-term abortion controversy in our culture began trending and subsequently led to a wealth of feedback. Although it’s impossible for me to answer every individual question and critique, I have some follow up thoughts that I think are warranted, particularly as the abortion debate continues to intensify and is sure to be a central issue in the 2020 elections.
As I started writing my response, three separate ones began to emerge.
Holy Week, Part 5: Friday
To Harry Potter, or not to Harry Potter: that is the question.
Holy Week, Part 4: Thursday
Jesus has been convicted of high blasphemy by the Jewish courts—claiming to be the Son of God. The penalty is death.
Holy Week, Part 3: Wednesday
Jesus and His disciples gather to celebrate the Passover, but Jesus is about to change the meal forever.
Holy Week, Part 2: Tuesday
After the uproar of the past two days, the religious leaders have had enough of Jesus and His antics.
Holy Week, Part 1: Monday
Jerusalem is still frenzied over yesterday’s drama and controversy, but Jesus isn’t done.

Yesterday Jesus fulfilled what the prophet Zechariah had long ago promised, “Rejoice! … Your King comes to you, humble and riding upon a donkey.” But what is the purpose of His visitation?
MLK Weekend? Or Sanctity of Life Sunday? Jesus Says Both.
The United States is one of only seven countries that allows for elective abortions after 20 weeks (the point where it is conclusively proven that unborn babies feel pain). In fact, our federal law allows for abortions through the stage of viability (22-24 weeks) all the way up to the birth canal of a full-term mother. And this past week, in particular, the often-ignored reality of late-term abortion became front and center for all to see.
Who's Afraid of Halloween?
When American churches gather this Sunday, it will be a unique window into our cultural divide. Being MLK weekend, many churches will decry the prejudice in our land. But in this year’s calendar, Sanctity of Life Sunday is also this weekend, and many other churches will decry the killing of the unborn. But very few churches, I’m willing to bet, will do both.
Can I Get an Amen?
Should Christians participate in Halloween?
What's the Right School for Your Child?
No seriously, can I get one?
As many of you know, our session voted for me to serve as Trinity’s interim Head of School for this academic year. While I am excited about this opportunity and trust the Lord is using it, there is one question, in particular, that has given me caution: What does this communicate to the families of TCPC that have not chosen Trinity as the best option for their children?
