Millennial Musings


Trigger Warning

This post might trigger you, you might get mad, maybe you won't... I honestly don't know anymore. The world is weird ya'll, and church folks are being all kinds of unpredictable. But First, a Word From Our Sponsors I wrote a book, which is why I have this website,...

Being a Millennial on Memorial Day

It shouldn't be a thing worth mentioning, but it definitely is. I grew up with a healthy respect for the armed forces. In fact, I talked with a couple different recruiters while in high school and thought about joined one or two different branches myself.  I didn't...

This isn’t helpful

Millennial stereotypes... They are SUUUUUUUPER fun... If you couldn't tell, that was sarcasm... forgive me. Seriously though, I am over this. Parents are taking their kids to court to force them to get a job and move out. The news is all too happy to perpetuate the...

Facts are facts… unless we don’t like them…

At least that's what the TV said. Facts are now whatever you want them to be, just as long as they support your worldview. I don't know if I have ever heard the term "alternative facts" until Kellyanne Conway said it about Trump’s inauguration audience size. What...

Promise That You Will Read This First

I have had requests to put Millennial Jesus (or Hipster Jesus as some of you call Him) on a shirt. I thought long and hard about it and spent more than a couple moments in prayer. Truthfully, I hate the idea of monetizing Jesus which made this a struggle. What I...

On behalf of the Church, I am sorry

Sorry guys, this post won't be a super fun one. Today was a bad day for me, and really for the church. No, it's not because the Patriots are in the Superbowl again, but that obviously didn't help. It's also not because I personally did something that I need to make a...

Follow up on the whole “Not being a Jerk” discussion

I've been thinking a lot about why people are jerks. I wrote a little something about it yesterday and you can read it here. In my pondering, and through discussions with people I respect I have come to some conclusions of where maybe some Jerk-itude (that's the one...

Don’t be a jerk

Don't be a jerk. Cool? Cool... For real though, being a jerk ruins stuff. So why do we act like jerks so often? We complain about jerks all the time, you would think it would teach us something. We see it cross-generationally, bad behavior that is learned and then...
