Working For Dad

Working For Dad

Just in time for Father’s Day, this one was written by Julian Brooks. My first summer home from Bible College left me with four months to get to work and save some money for the year’s upcoming tuition. Thankfully I had a job lined up and a place to stay that would allow me to […]

An Un-Earnable Love and the Tragic Death of Performance: "Emotional Stuff" on <i>3 Mics</i>

An Un-Earnable Love and the Tragic Death of Performance: “Emotional Stuff” on 3 Mics

This reflection comes from Julian Brooks. Lately I’ve been on a standup comedy binge thanks to the power of Netflix, and I recently stumbled upon Neal Brennan’s special, 3 Mics.

Confessions of a Viking

Confessions of a Viking

Here’s a post from our favorite Scandinavian seafarer, Julian Brooks. It took me a long time to give it a shot, but a few months ago my wife and I finally started watching Vikings on the History Channel. I remember seeing the preview for it a few years back and hearing Awolnation’s song “Sail” for […]

Previewing The Revenant: Justice vs. Mercy on the Western Frontier

This one comes to us from Julian Brooks: The other night while binge watching some Hulu, I came across a preview for the upcoming movie, The Revenant. When I saw that both Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy are in the film, I thought it might be another Christopher Nolan masterpiece. The Batman Trilogy, Inception, and […]
