In 1997 I was running my first website: Geocities "Voice in the Wilderness." It seemed appropriate then since I was serving as pastor to churches in the Nevada desert. I bought the domain name in 1999. Mostly on and sometimes off, I have operated the website since then.

Those visiting this site will notice it is running on a new platform now and most of the content from the first 17 years will be restored as opportunity permits. Changes to the GCO ministry will soon be shared in this space.


HAYSTACKS #7: Counter-cultural


Genders, Rights, and Freedom of Speech

Critically important presentation for understanding where gender and free speech are headed.

Although this presentation is 54 minutes long, it lays out the issues and trends very, very well. It also marks one of the key points in the break-out of Jordan Peterson into internet popularity. Peterson is the University of Toronto professor who refused to submit to transgender pronoun speech compelled by law and created an uproar for his resistance.

Jesus Gatherer

Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, the way a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were unwilling. Behold your house is being left to you desolate! For I say to you, from now on you will not see Me until you say, 'Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!' (Matthew 23:37-39).
