Our culture is filled with anger, depression, rage, and quick emotional reactions to even the smallest of events. Why? Because we’ve forfeited too much authority to other voices who are living rent-free in our heads. You have a unique mind, soul, and place that was specifically crafted by the Creator. You were made in God’s […]

The powerful Netflix documentary, “The Social Dilemma” delivered a barrage of troubling information and insights from the very same people who designed the various social media channels to which we are addicted.

The timing had to be perfect, right down to the minute. The journey, covering hundreds of miles, was fraught with potential roadblocks – both literal and figurative. The very best case scenario, where every element fit together like the inner workings of an antique grandfather clock, would result in my arrival for a speaking engagement with a flop sweat-inducing three minutes to spare.

Matthew 7:12 – In all things, do unto others as you would have them do unto you. There can be no debate that the discourse of our culture has taken on all the class and dignity of an Andrew Dice Clay routine from the 1980s. Otherwise educated and professional adults have morphed into spewing factories […]

Phil. 4:8 – Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

Newspapers and magazines are desperate. Really, really desperate. They’re begging and pleading. The offers are becoming so outlandish as to be both laughable and sad at the same time.

Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction… – Galatians 6:7-8 We have a problem, you and me.

Ever heard of the “rubber chicken” circuit? It’s a commonly used term among those who are frequently involved with planning and participating in a multitude of charitable banquets.

In January of 2017, Hobson Media – under the banner of Hobson Digital – launched a podcast network featuring an array of programs ranging from Marriage to Homelessness (no correlation between those two topics is intended).
