Interview: Jonathan Ogden

I recently had the opportunity to converse with Jonathan Ogden, the front man for the UK-based band, Rivers & Robots. The band is a personal favorite of mine and earned the top spot in my 2014 and 2016 Christian music reviews.

This is the first audio interview I've done for the site, though I hope to do more in the future. I can't make any promises regarding frequency of uploads, but if you'd like to subscribe, you can do so here:

I hope you enjoy the interview. Find out more about R&R here: riversandrobots.com

When My High View of God Offends You


It's hard to offend people these days; that is, unless you have strong convictions about God.

I don't know much about William Paul Young (Wm. Paul Young, the author of The Shack). I know that he is really good at bad exegesis in short periods of time. I know that he has a new book coming out in which he explains how the statements, "God is in control," "You need to get saved," "Hell is separation from God," "The cross was God's idea," and "Sin separates us from God" are all lies. I know he went to Western Seminary. And I know that The Shack, his book-turned-movie, is proving to be another litmus test for the Christian culture.

Serve your spouse

Last time I wrote to the husbands, letting them know that they've died. That was Lesson 1. The truth is, both spouses who are in Christ have died. And they're both called to serve.

In a few weeks my first book will be published. It's an exciting time. It's also a challenging time. The book is for young Christian husbands (like me) who need advice for living out a godly marriage (like me).

That's what my book is about and that's what these posts are about as my book's release date approaches. Here's the Lesson 2 for my fellow Christian husbands and their wives.

Free Resource Friday: Bulletin templates


When you're a part of a small church (especially a church plant), there are many little things that can get in the way of the big things. Bulletins can be difficult to design and organize for those who don't like that sort of thing. Because of that, I've got four bulletin templates that you can use free of charge.

You've died, Christian husband


In a few weeks my first book will be published. It's an exciting time. It's also a challenging time. The book is for young Christian husbands (like me) who need advice for living out a godly marriage (like me).

I desire to be the husband I describe in the book and I know I fall way short of the standard. Christian living is a difficult topic to write about because no one is perfect at any aspect of it. Take the subject of humility for example. What human among us is the most qualified to tell others how to be humble? Somebody's gotta do it.
