Stories from the Q:  Joey B

The Q Began last March, and though I can’t be sure, I believe that was a year and two months ago.  I have no proof right now, but it’s been warm here in downtown Worcester, Massachusetts for over a week now, and that just doesn’t happen unless it’s May.  Its crazy how one day I can be teaching Math to a bunch 7th grade middle school students at Forest Grove, and the next I’m asked to go home and stay there by my bosses, the media, politicians, doctors, and a bunch of stay at home moms turned infectious disease experts on social media.  So I went home, and for the next three weeks, played X-box with my college friends from around the country.

That time I almost Quit

On a cold December morning in 2017, I met with a group of friends (that I still meet with, though this morning it will be on Zoom) and we discussed our dreams.  Not the kind that you have when you’ve spun through a deep cycle of sleep and are close to waking up, but the ones that spur you on to make it through this life.  The dreams that push you to be better than you are, while at the same time help you be the person you were created to become.

Kingdom Work during the Pandemic

This is a difficult time.  Difficult times do not mean that Kingdom Work is on hold.  In fact, The act of being a disciple is all the more important right now as this is the kind of world the Christian is called to act in ways that are specifically Christ like.  We are not destined to be self-serving, and as such, we must think in ways that are kingdom-minded, and not solely on how to help our own plights.  So after a few weeks of “staying in”, here are some ways you can begin to act with the mind of Christ.

3 reasons the Tampa megapastor should have been arrested

Pastor Rodney Howard-Browne is a name we’ll hear a lot of over the next few days.  His revivalist megachurch in Tampa, Florida chose to have church on Sunday and apparently it was packed.  He claimed it was the safest place around and they would never close because “We are revivalists and not pansies.”  The crowd cheered.  I couldn’t believe it when I saw pictures of their church opened, and then was shocked again when a group text of mine (mostly pastors) posted an article sharing that Howard-Browne had been arrested.  My friends and I talked for a bit about whether he should have been, with good arguments on both sides.  However, I thought I’d share three reasons why I believe he should have arrested A misdemeanor for unlawful assembly and violation of public health emergency order.
