Performing Contradictions

Rarely a day goes by where a post on social media characterizes the only available actions to thwart ISIS is to bomb them off the planet. Christians re-post this with regularity. It is performing a contradiction. (more…)

Doing Without In A Culture of More or, A Mashup of Sacks, Micheli, Kriz, and Rohr

We train our children early how to expect more. Later we prod them to temper their appetites and do with less. Unlearning what it feels like to have more poses more of a difficulty than we realize. The same is true when after establishing habits of more we hear Jesus' call for less. (more…)

Cancer and Tamed Cynic or, Jason Goes On the Offensive

I don't know if he has a face for radio, but he has a voice for preaching. It was the voice I heard on a podcast some time back that caught my attention. His words did not hurt either. But it was the voice. (more…)

Friday Photo – Introducing Oikoshandmade

I want to be creative. I try to be creative. But alas, most of the time the best I can do is enjoy those who are and celebrate their gifts to us.

Our two girls inherited their mother’s creativity. And, that is a good thing. Our oldest, Kimberly, has taken to crocheting like a duck to water. Since Cohen was born she has found herself buying yarn and making hats, shoes, and more for him. That branched out to items for we who are a wee bit bigger.

Last month she launched a website, Oikoshandmade, telling the story of her family – Craig and Cohen. She also has found that her handmade items are quite popular. She opened up a “shop” over at Big Cartel. Obviously we are proud of her. So, if you have a little one – your own or a grandson – click over, check things out and get your order in. Or, you may seem something that would “fit” you.

Right now she has a contest going on. There is still time to enter and win.

Enjoy. We do!
