My company name—Old School—is not just a name to me, as I have said. It is an all-encompassing idea, that references the timeless,… Read the rest

Sincerity is the Wrong Question

  • by
I was talking with a friend this week about Kanye West, and if his Jesus is King! album and open embrace of Christianity is “real.” My take is that, from what I can see, Kanye is sincere. I’ve seen a number of his interviews, and I really like the innocence I see in him, and the free nature of his… Read the rest

My Podcasts Are Now Available on Apple Podcasts and Google Play Music!

  • by
As you’re likely aware, podcasts are hugely popular these days. I believe there are at least three key reasons for this: #1: Commercial radio has gotten too ridiculous with all of their ads! Enough already! And the customer rebelled. In this day and age, with so many choices for information and entertainment, it’s a huge mistake for any business to… Read the rest

What Happened to Jeremy (“Linsanity”) Lin?

I’m a big fan of Christian athletes. I root for them. I want them to succeed. I want to see better role models in the culture. We can sure use them these days. I’ve always rooted for Tim Tebow, and through all of his trials, tribulations, and injuries, I still believe we haven’t heard the last from him. Which brings… Read the rest

The Real Health Manifesto

  • by
When I ask the question, “what is health?”, what do you think of? My guess is that you think of living relatively free of debilitating illnesses, injuries, etc. That is certainly one aspect of health. But I want my posts and site to be about much more than that. Real health begins with spiritual health. There is no health without… Read the rest

What’s More Important Than News and Politics?

“I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” —John 10:10 KJV Let’s get this out of the way up front—news and politics are VERY important. We should care about what is going on in our world. The “news” keeps us on top of what is well… new. And politics is merely the… Read the rest

“America Was Never That Great”–Tell That To My Dad

I’ve often said that my parents were “New Deal” Democrats. Products of the Great Depression, they believed–rightly or wrongly–that Franklin D. Roosevelt “got us out of the Depression.” They voted Democrat all their lives. There was a time that a reasonable case could be made that the Democrat Party was “the Party of the little guy.” The purpose of this… Read the rest
