Weekly Thoughts 3

Locke, Right and Wrong, and a Theological Imperative The other night I watched Locke, a 2014 drama starring Tom Hardy. Locke focuses in on one man who makes an instant decision and in an hour and a half car ride sees the results of this decision unfold before him as he works through it in various phone calls.

Summer Love?

(I entered a writing contest this summer, it was for short stories and had to be about a summer experience – needless to say I did not win, so I decided to try an experiment with what I wrote. Below you can read the story or you can listen to my edited and recorded version of it or you can do both at the same time! Enjoy.) My first true summer camp experience was spent trying to avoid the girl I had a crush on. I was 15 years old,… Read more Summer Love?
