The Bangor Police Department Facebook Page — which has become wildly popular in the past year thanks in large part to the ‘duck of justice’ — is now taking heat for a recent post. Their public service announcement outlined how officers have witnessed panhandlers using sharpies to write messages on cardboard signs to ultimately scam Bangor residents.
Here is the post in question originally published to Facebook on June 4th…
This Saturday, June 6th in Bangor there will be a ‘Missional Discipleship One-Day’ held at the Union St Brick Church, 126 Main St, Bangor. Hosted by Imago Dei Church, this day of equipping is free and open to the public.
If you have a desire to learn more about what it means to “live on mission”, both individually and as a family — as well as meet leading practitioners in the Bangor area in this field — please stop by and connect with the folks at this event.
In our individualistic society, loving our neighbors has tended to go by the wayside. It’s not that we dislike them, but more accurately we don’t even know their names. Sure, we might throw a hearty wave their way when we drive by their house, or while we’re out mowing our lawn, but the relationship more […]

This event is being hosted at Imago Dei’s meeting location at the Union Street Brick Church at 126 Main St in Bangor. Organizers describe […]
I opened up my Twitter feed early this afternoon, and in a somewhat ironic juxtaposition I was greeted with this (see image below) — two tweets from separate news agencies posting two separate pictures from a Vanity Fair photo shoot that resulted in a disjointed portrayal of a man who has made himself into a woman. A confusing picture of a confused human in an even more confusing world.
Rather appropriately, the default twitter prompt was asking me “What’s happening?”… You tell me, Twitter, because it’s times like these that I’m at a temporary loss for words.
Welcome to the re-launch of this blog! Known as ‘Counter Culture’ since it’s inception in the fall of 2012, it has been on my heart for many months now to go a new direction with this blog. The original idea was to write from a faith-based perspective and offer view points counter to pop culture. However, I have […]
This story passed through my social media feed the other day and I couldn’t resist giving it a virtual ‘shout out’.
Discount Mattress and Furniture in the Airport Mall in Bangor currently has their windows decorated with a nativity, and the words ‘Jesus is the Reason for the Season.’ Nothing wrong with that, right? Jesus is the reason for this season after all.
All too often sharing our faith as Christians — if we even do it all — becomes a script that we recite. We do our best to remember to list all the features of what Jesus did on The Cross, before attempting to close the deal of eternal life for just one easy payment of ‘accept Jesus into your heart’.
We reduce evangelism to a ‘Gospel infomercial’.

The local organizers of Bangor’s first ever ‘Day of Hope’ were pleasantly surprised at the turnout this past Saturday on the Bangor Waterfront. It’s safe to say most volunteers were not expecting so many ‘guests of honor’ to be lined up outside the event’s entrance by 9 AM. But the rain held off, and by day’s end everyone involved was simply thankful to have played a small part in the event’s success.
