Wastebin-Inspired Wrath

Since the day after we were married, Hayley had been asking me for a nicer trash can. She really, really, really wanted an aluminum trash can to replace our wimpy, unattractive little plastic one. I had no clue how expensive these things were, so once I discovered this reality, I had to turn her down – a task that no one should desire. She can be quite persistent. This request Continue reading...

Three views of worship

One of the questions I’ve been asking internally (and externally) lately is “What is the point of worship?” For most of life, I’ve been taught that worship isn’t about me – it’s about God.

What really is going to push me over the top is my tagline: The fast food restaurant for people who don’t like fast food restaurants. You see, we’re going to be different than all Continue reading...

I’m back?

Two months have passed since my last post. My experiment to see the importance I played to the success or failure of the Internet has come to a close, and I must say the findings are disturbing at best. After two months of nothingness from ToddBlog.net (the very blog you’re reading now), the Internet still functions as it always has. For two months, a corner of the interwebs that formerly Continue reading...
