Get Up and Walk

Sometimes I write scripts and something special happens. I originally wrote this script to introduce the “sacraments of healing”: Reconciliation and Anointing of the Sick. We decided to tell the famous story of Mark 2:12 because it includes both the forgiveness of sins and… Continue Reading “Get Up and Walk”

The Mercy of God

Though I’ve been delinquent in updating the site, Outside Da Box and the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston are doing a great job by creating new videos every month to help teens understand a different element of the Catechism, and I’ve the honor of writing the… Continue Reading “The Mercy of God”

The Good, the Bad, and Theology of Noah

I had the chance to see the movie Noah with my new friend Jon Blevins while I was in Manitowoc, WI, this past weekend doing a parish mission at St. Francis of Assisi Parish. My love and prayers to everyone who attended: I had… Continue Reading “The Good, the Bad, and Theology of Noah”

Eros and Agape in Disney’s Frozen

The Friday of Thanksgiving weekend is traditionally a “movie” day for us. This year we split the family: 12-years-old and over went to see the new Hunger Games, 11-years-old and under went to see Disney’s new animated movie, Frozen. Having seen Hunger Games already, I… Continue Reading “Eros and Agape in Disney’s Frozen”

BTW, the new CD is available (and so are some old ones!)

I’m pretty stunned I haven’t made a bigger deal of this. My new CD, “The Gospel Accordion to Bob Rice,” came out a week before Thanksgiving, but with NCYC, Thanksgiving, the last week of school, and now I’m at parish mission in Hiawatha! Iowa,… Continue Reading “BTW, the new CD is available (and so are some old ones!)”

The Little Ukulele Boy

Did you know in Hawaii that the story of “The Little Drummer Boy” is re-told as “The Little Ukelele Boy?” Probably not, because I just made that up. But if there was a story about “The Little Ukulele Boy,” it would star Kyle Heimann.… Continue Reading “The Little Ukulele Boy”

A Great Advent Book for Kids

I don’t normally do this, but sometimes you come across something too good not to share. And when it’s made by people you know, that makes it even more special. Theresa and Charles Pobee-Mensah just wrote a book together called, “Bible Characters for Advent.”… Continue Reading “A Great Advent Book for Kids”

I’m fasting from myself

When people ask me about my music, my usual joke is, “I’m a big fan of me. I have all my CDs.” The truth is that I rarely hear my own music unless 1) my kids ask for it, or 2) it comes up… Continue Reading “I’m fasting from myself”

Crazy. Busy. Good. (With cool video at the end!)

  Life. Is. Crazy. But in many ways, crazy good. Bobby just got out of surgery yesterday for his leg. Those who have followed by blog might remember that in February he broke his femur because of a weakened bone. So they put a… Continue Reading “Crazy. Busy. Good. (With cool video at the end!)”

I Got By With A Lot Of Help From My Friends

Regular readers of my blog (as well as Facebook friends and Twitter followers) know that for the past two months I’ve been fundraising for my newest CD, “The Gospel Accordion to Bob Rice.” It ended at 11:59 PM last night and the final total… Continue Reading “I Got By With A Lot Of Help From My Friends”
