So why write a blog anyway? 

I’ve started this to be an ‘add on’ to some of the things we already do. Sometimes I’ll write about something I am about to preach on or just did, sometimes I’ll write about what something relevant in the culture, and sometimes I’ll just answer your questions!

What’s the deal with the name ‘Lamp and Lantern’?

I was thinking about our logo, the lighthouse, and how maybe I could come up with a cute play on the theme, hence a lamp and lantern. I was thinking about how in the ancient world (unlike modern lighthouses that act as a warning) lighthouses were actually to be a beacon to bring ships home to the safe harbor. In this way, I think it is appropriate that a little thing like a blog can be a tiny shining light, guiding to the safe harbor, Christ himself.
