• About Bruce

    A web programmer by day, I somehow still spend a lot of time thinking about relationships, God, and the significance of grace and love in daily events. I am old school in the sense that I believe in the reality of sin, and in the need of each human heart for deliverance to the Divine. I am one of those who believes that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and that you can find most answers to life's pressing issues in Him and His Word, the Bible. I ain't perfect, and a lot of the time I ain't good, but by God's grace and kindness, I am forgiven and free.

    Soft Dawn

    My guess is we all have those moments when it feels like the walls of life are pressing in on us. Or, rather, the walls of being alive press on us. Decisions squeeze us, and choices ask for a decision. Sometimes, it’s the wheeze of mortality heard way to close to us, through a...

    I was delighted to see my cousin Kevin Scruggs’s company, Bro Corp United, had this video posted on its Facebook timeline today. Evidently, Terry Bradshaw hosts a show called “Today in America” which is billed as “the first show of its genre… that’s geared towards the educated, affluent viewer… Today in America successfully blends...

    Things were getting a little kooky this afternoon as much of the world (or at least a few people in the U.S., most specifically in Miami and Cleveland) were getting amped about LeBron James and where he would land next year in the NBA. I ended up coming across this tweet that said locals...

    I don’t know what I ate the night before, but Thursday morning I woke from one of those lucid dreams wondering what I had done. The dream, from what I had of it still in memory at the time, went something like this… I’m sitting in a lobby to the training room in an...

    “Be patient, then, brothers and sisters, until the Lord’s coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop, patiently waiting for the autumn and spring rains.” - James 5:7 Growing up as a Southern Baptist kid in the evangelical tradition, I didn’t go to a church that was all...

It’s a series about Peter the disciple, but today Todd talked about the moments you and I encounter infrequently where we make single decisions that impact the course of our lives. Similarly, I finished Steinbeck’s “The Winter of our Discontent”,...
