The Ramble

Welcome to The Ramble. What is The Ramble, you ask? It’s whatever we want it to be. The Ramble is short-form pieces. The Ramble is random recommendations from our staff. The Ramble is all this and more. We hope this will become a bi-weekly or monthly feature on Rambling Ever On. If we don’t hit that goal, let us know.

Jesus Eating with Sinners – Gowdy Cannon

There may be those people who believe that Jesus “hung out” with sinners and did so in an attempt to bond with them and not judge them. And the typical response from biblical Christianity is that Jesus hung out with sinners to lead them to repent, not affirm their sin.

Yet a question we should be asking is, “Are we spending time with sinners around dinner tables to do the same?” This is a huge model from Jesus’s life, with Matthew and Matthew’s friends, and with Zaccheus. Perhaps we underestimate how powerful mealtimes and hospitality can be in witnessing to the lost. We surely share meals in homes with family because we love them and know the value of eating together. Jesus did this with lost people.


Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves (Review by Phill Lytle)

This won’t be a deep dive into this movie, as there are plenty of those out there. This is intended to be more of a recommendation than anything else.

I do not play Dungeons & Dragons. I know very little about that world of dice, quests, and magic. On the other hand, I am a big fan of fantasy and epic adventures, so I hoped this film would work its magic on me. To put it plainly, it did. I went in with low-to-moderate expectations and walked away with one of the most entertaining and enjoyable movies I have seen in quite some time. At its heart, Dungeons & Dragons is a film that simply wants to entertain. No agenda and absolutely no hidden messages.

If you enjoy films with plenty of humor, engaging and likable characters, dynamic action sequences, brisk pacing, and surprising amounts of heart, there is a good chance Dungeons & Dragons will work for you.

New Music!

Benjamin Daniel is an independent musician who has been making amazing music for a number of years. He has a new album coming out very soon and has been slowly releasing various songs from that album. “Lights Out” is the latest release and it’s amazing. Check it out and if you like it, be sure to listen to the rest of Benjamin’s music.

Middle Age is Weird – Phill Lytle

Middle age is weird.

You watch your parents age, and you fully remember when they were your age with so much time ahead.

Your children are becoming adults, and you can distinctly recall when your entire life felt like hope, dreams, and potential.

Middle age is the weird in-between stage of life. That place delicately positioned between the beginning and the end.

I want to sit with these truths for a while. I don’t want to brush them off or bury them deep in my subconscious. I want to feel the brevity of life and the cyclical nature of existence.

I hope this pushes me toward contemplation and thankfulness. Even though life is short, change is inevitable, and death comes for every one of us, the stuff that happens in those margins is beautiful and life changing.

Teach us to number our days, O Lord. And in that accounting, let us find our rest and joy in You.
