When I was growing up, dating Christian girls was impossible. It felt like every Christian girl back then was dating Jesus. I didn’t even know what that looked like. Would they pray to their boyfriend? Would He pay for dinner just like He paid for our sins?
Almost every Christian guy who had their eye on a girl in their youth group ran into this problem. Imagine pursuing a girl who was taken- by Jesus. We stood no chance. My brother and his friends were so frustrated by this predicament that they wrote a book about it. They called it “Christian Girls for Dummies.” We were planning for it to be a New York Times Bestseller, and I was going to buy the first copy.
That book wouldn’t sell much now days. The Christian dating world has changed with the millennial generation. I don’t hear of many girls dating Jesus now. Either Jesus was dumped (imagine what that would look like) by hordes of women, or something new is arising within Christian relationships.

I’m not a patriotic person. I don’t know why. Maybe, it’s because I’m Indian or not that spirited. But whatever the reason might be, patriotism just does not resonate with my core of who I am.
Now don’t mistake my words here. This doesn’t mean I don’t support the troops. This doesn’t mean I’m not proud to live in America. What this does mean is that I am more than capable of being one of those people who bashes patriotism in the church.

My body cringes every time I hear politics mentioned in the pulpit. This is not because I am disgusted with political discourse. It’s because our political rambles often drift into talk that distracts from the Gospel. And then at the end of the day, talk is all our political discourse in the church amounts to. No action. Just the same old meandering on political hot topics. Continue reading →
A friend once told me that sacrifice is essential for success. I didn’t believe him. I was at that ripe age where I still felt entitled, I still believed that greatness was within my clutch, and I was still prideful in who I was and where I was going. Sacrifice was unnecessary. Continue reading →
Those words stung something deep in my soul. It wasn’t until I walked away that I could clarify the feeling. Those words- they made me feel alone.
My friend told me that because I had an idea. The idea was simple. I was going to reverse the deprecating stigma that engulfed our school by holding a campus-wide worship event right in the heart of our campus. That wasn’t radical. It was insane. Continue reading →
Jon Acuff states that there are five stages on the road to awesomeness: learning, editing, mastering, harvesting, and guiding. As a twentysomething, I am caught in the learning phase- the stage of life where you are exploring and discovering new things about who you are and who you were made to be.
An older gentleman asked me the other day what problem does the millennial generation have with faith. I told him that I don’t believe the millennial generation has a problem with faith per se. They just see faith in an entirely different lens.
The church is evolving. Millennials who picture the faith differently are now stepping up to the forefront of Christianity and are taking their place as leaders. They are leading the institution into the unknown, where growth is bound to happen.
