The Killing House – Wm. Paul Young

Behind my desk there sits a clock, crafted by Terry King, a man who has become my friend and who has lived in Unit 2A on Death Row in Tennessee for 34 years. Right before Christmas, two years ago, it arrived unexpected, a gift. The first time I met Terry, it was because of a friend of a friend, who asked me to come and spend a few hours with him. The Shack has had a profound impact on his life, as well as other inmates. Since then, I have tried to visit every time my travels have taken me through Nashville. This blog was written in the last few days in the wake of my most recent visit. I am fascinated at how the Holy Spirit weaves seasons of focus ...

“I turned 18 and left” by Jonny

I turned eighteen and left after the summer. I moved away from home, got my first full-time job and didn’t think about church. There wasn’t rebellion, I had my Christian conditioning administered in healthy doses in a healthy environment. By fourteen I knew Darwin was onto something, my stock answer to “does God forgive gays?” was, “for what?” and Evangelical hysteria looked like a bigger threat to the youth of America than satanic ritual abuse. I grew up at enough dinner theology discussions where no potential heresy was off the table, so I didn’t fear for my soul. So out of habit, I stuck with Jesus. Hedonism looked gross anyway, and ...
