When I was a child, we sang a song at church about feet.  I thought it was odd at the time but everyone else was doing it so, "ok".  Don’t get me wrong, I loved songs about body parts. “Do your ears hang low” was one of my favorites and even a song abou...


One of the great laments of modern Christianity is that it has become a noun.  Much of what I read abut faith, is about the what rather than the how.  To be a follower of Jesus has gone from following Jesus to being a follower of Jesus.  The point of thi...
