What I’m Reading – “The Rise and Triumph of the Modern Self.”

By | Blog, Pastor David's Blog | One Comment

“The Rise and Triumph of the Modern Self: Cultural Amnesia, Expressive Individualism, and the Road to the Sexual Revolution” by Carl Trueman. In reviewing Trueman’s work, I want to begin not with Trueman but with Walt Disney: “Have faith in your dreams and someday Your rainbow will come smiling through No matter how your heart is grieving If you keep on believing The dream that you wish will come true.” Cinderella Both Trueman’s book and the review you are reading now are a bit dense (though not as dense as some of the people he interacts with). Truerman’s 426 pages…

Through the Bible – 2021

By | Blog, Pastor David's Blog | One Comment

For a little over five years I have been listening, on a regular basis, to audio books. More specifically, I’ve listened to about 50 of them. Many of them have been quite long. I would guess, off the top of my head, that they averaged about 25 hours in length (for those counting, that means a lot of them were very long!). I have come to really enjoy the format. I find that I can focus on most of them quite well when I am engaging in various tasks. This year, I have decided to add a new audio book…

Service Update – November 18, 2020

By | Blog | No Comments

Dear Friends, This is a brief update as to our services at Sunrise Bible Church. You can also find a video update here. We are not going to hold services through Thanksgiving. We had hoped to be meeting this weekend, but we are going to hold off one more week. The primary reason is that we have additional members or attenders who have either tested positive or are showing signs of the virus. More specifically, the virus has struck my own home. My wife Casey has tested positive and has been fairly sick for over a week. As a result,…
