by Jason Hess on April 10, 2014

Every Christmas some of my family, and occasionally a few friends, get together to play a game of the tabletop roleplaying game Call of Cthulhu. Well, several years ago I sat down and put my mind to bringing the Time Lords from Doctor Who into the Call of Cthulhu game. So, I began working on a way to create a Time Lord character.

An Adjustment in Content (minor site update)

February 1, 2014

It would seem it has been a while since I last wrote a post…not so much for lack of thought but rather lack of direction. This blog has been an interesting critter to say the least. I initially started it to be my virtual pulpit since at the time I wasn’t (and still not) back […]

Ever feel like you jumped the gun and made a mistake? After realizing you’ve made a mistake have you ever hesitated admitting it for fear of appearing indecisive, double-minded, a leaf upon the wind? Well, confession time. I made a mistake. For the past three years my family and I have attended an independent, non-denominational […]

Tonight while scrolling through my feed on facebook I stumbled across the above picture as well as a selection of verses from the The Kingdom New Testament: A Contemporary Translation by N.T. Wright. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, perhaps this picture will evolve your thinking. If we would only look deeply […]

While I don’t usually promote crowd-funding campaigns via eckSermonator I feel compelled to this time. Frankly it’s because my family and I would, and still could, greatly benefit from this project. Truth be told over the years my wife and I have found ourselves being drawn to the roots of the Christian Church (which is […]
