ET’S take a road trip! As I’ve mentioned on social media and here at Theolatte, I’m taking my twins on a Route 66 trip over the next several days. We’re going through the sixty-six books of the Bible on our way. Want to join us? I’ll update the blog each day with the passages and a few tips.
ATCHING “Thor: Ragnarok,” a Marvel movie about the superhero character inspired by Greek mythology (for the uninitiated), my son Isaiah’s response to a scene made me think about Christianity. Stan Lee makes a cameo in every Marvel movie as he is the creative brain behind the galactic enterprise. In this particular Thor film, Lee is a barber who cuts off Thor’s hair in a rather biblical kind of Samson meets Delilah moment.
RTHODOX DRAGONS, who would have thought? I have a number of dragon books I’ve self-published for my kids that are inspired by doctrinal statements. It all started with James, a dragon who lives in the drain in the Josephus Bowl at Southern Seminary. I’m joined today by Micah for whom this story was written (and for his twin brother Isaiah). You can check out the digital flip book here.
OR the twins’ thirteenth birthday part of their gift was a road trip down Route 66. We’ve been planning it since October. We will hit the road in June and we’re all getting pretty excited. In thinking through a Bible study to add to our journey, I decided to walk them through the 66 books of the Bible.
OLEY Moley was a rolly polly. Josiah the Gentle Giant loved to play with him. But some times, the Gentle Giant would squeeze the rolly pollies just a little too much. And they would squish. The following video is a reading of the story I made for Josiah’s birthday in 2013. Here’s a digital flip book version if you want to read it online. Thanks for letting me share!
ERE’S Your Weekend Worldview Reader with links to articles, essays, reviews, & videos I consider to be interesting or important from a biblical worldview. During the summer months I will post these bi-weekly, as I will be joining Carmen LaBerge on My Faith Radio around 7:40AM (EST) on the first & third Fridays of the month to talk about what is going on in the world of worldview.
HE Night the Wild Things Came Out to Play is of course inspired byMaurice Sendak’s classic children’s story “Where the Wild Things Are.” The following video is a reading of the story I made for our twins retelling how April and I used to go to their room, sometimes even wake them up, and have epic stuffed animal fights. Thanks for letting me share!
OTHING makes me feel like the summer season is officially upon us than listening to Will Smith’s “Summertime” while firing up the grill. Every year about this time, following the spring commencement service, I turn my attention away from academics and onto other projects. My summers are usually filled with speaking at youth camps, working on writing projects, and family vacation.
