Noel’s World Famous Roasted Pumpkin Seeds Recipe

Each year during the Halloween season, as a Public Service, I repost Noel's World Famous Roasted Pumpkin Seeds Recipe.  You are welcome.  It's truly the least I can do. I am bit of a Pumpkin Seed Purist. I don't like anything to get in the way of their lovely taste. My recipe, therefore, is incredibly simple. Step 1) Take the seeds out of the pumpkin. This is ...

Learning Theology from 80′s Christian Music (Seriously)

When I was in Jr. High, every square inch of the wall beside my bed was covered with magazine covers from CCM magazine, which was the premier source of information about Contemporary Christian Music in the 80's (a quick Google search confirms they are still around...amazing). Looking back, I realize a lot of my theological formation began with the musicians that ...
