So I haven’t been posting much as of late. I figured I’d just drop by and point out why. Ready? *Drumroll* It’s because I’m back in school. Yay! I’m working hard at the Baptist College of Florida, and between that, work, and church I don’t have tons of time for blogging. I certainly won’t be … Continue reading "Just A Quick Update"
Who am I? I’m Caleb, a silly, nerdy 20-year-old with an obsessive interest in theology and a (relatively) new family. I’m a student, a learner. I’m young and inexperienced, but nonetheless feel the constant need to try to wrap my head around things real adults have worked on for thousands of years. I have no qualifications unless Google … Continue reading "Apology: Who I Am, What I'm Doing, and What I Should Change"
Ashley and I always feel compelled by the reality of the world and the grace of the Gospel to give. We simply don’t see a way out. Scripture teaches generosity, and not only that. It also teaches care for those in need, justice for those oppressed, and mercy to those suffering. All of these causes can be advanced through … Continue reading "Going out to Eat for Pure Religion"

For a long time there has been a necessary tension between writing for … Continue reading "The Nicene Noggin"
If you know me in real life, you probably already know this, though you might be left in the dark for some reason. At 2:03PM, on July 16, 2014, my wife gave birth to David Nathaniel Smith (aka Nathan), my son. (And yes, I am 19. And yes, he was an entirely post-nuptial pregnancy.) He … Continue reading "The Baby"
If you didn’t know this already, I’m a bit of an introvert. And I, like my introvert pals, sometimes do things that don’t make sense to other people. Socially unusual things. They are easy to misinterpret. I’m pretty sure people frequently get the wrong idea. So here’s a basic guide to weird things we do. … Continue reading "#JustIntrovertThings"
There are few things more expected from a blogger than some kind of post for a major holiday, including New Year’s. Also usually expected is a post about New Year’s resolutions, especially from people who blog about personal stuff. Most people don’t follow through on most of their New Year’s resolutions. In fact, I’m pretty … Continue reading "Yes, This Is A New Year's Resolution Post"
