Dear Fellow 1.5-ers,

If God had a favorite word, a case could be made for that word being love or grace or believe.  But, there’s a word in the Bible that communicates more about the character of God and His priorities better than the three words listed above.

What if?

Dear Fellow 1.5-ers,

A refugee from the kingdom of Lost stealthily entered the country of Found in search of safety and life for his family.  He, his wife, and their three small children had been on the move for months dodging alloyed hail and starvation.  They had heard the country

Dear Fellow 1.5ers,

This is a story of redemption.  It includes some embellishments because it’s a hunting story, and like all good hunting (and fishing) stories, lying is necessary for it to be true to the genre.  

I have a city-friend who married a country-girl.  His father-in-law is a

The Sounds of Sin and Singing

Dear Fellow 1.5-ers,

In our home, we have two adults plus three children plus one dog and that equals eternal laundry.  It never ends.  My wife works at it.  Washes it. Dries it.  Folds it.  Puts it away.  Repeat.  Often we keep an Everest-like mound of laundry on our love

The Weed-Killer

Dear Fellow 1.5ers,

"Gentle Power"

Dear 1.5ers,

Then there are those evils that can only be snuffed out by

“Evil Wears a Mask”

Dear 1.5-ers,

Last weekend I won. Not a game. Not a gamble. No, I won parenting. I sat my five-year-old son down, and we watched A New Hope (that’s Star Wars Episode IV originally released in 1977). Together, we hung on every word Luke spoke, and we watched as light

“What’s in a Name?”

I’m calling this weekly blog Adam 1.5 which draws its meaning from Romans 5:12-21 and draws its explanation from Romans 7:14-25. Using these passages, I want to explain what’s “in” this blog’s name, and by doing so, I hope clearly to share the aim of this blog.

Since my name
