In The Darkroom

In The Darkroom

I wasn’t feeling well this past weekend, but it was my week to bring the message at church. I knew it was going to be a message that someone needed to hear, because I needed to hear it myself. But, I did not expect to get the number of personal responses that I...
Holy Is Your Name

Holy Is Your Name

I recently started writing songs based on The Lord’s Prayer. I am captivated by the fact that the Bible does not record the disciples asking Jesus to teach them anything other than how to pray. They asked why they could heal in a certain case. A couple of them...
Seeing Is Only Part Of Getting There

Seeing Is Only Part Of Getting There

In January, 2013, three men took a weekend away to seek God together in prayer. Their goal was to pray for their leaders, families, and each other. I’ve been thinking about that prayer retreat lately, and dug into the blog archives to read what I had written. It was...

It’s Monday

It’s Monday

It’s Monday. Family has gone back to their homes and the work week begins. It was just yesterday that we were celebrating Risen Christ, but is today any different than last Monday? How can it be that we so soon go back to the daily grind of life? If we have...
Mercy and Grace

Mercy and Grace

I don’t think there is ever a calm feeling when there are red and blue flashing lights in the rearview mirror. Think about when you’re driving down the highway and you see a police car checking everyone’s speed. Instinct kicks in and you probably...
The Shoes We Wear

The Shoes We Wear

Perception is reality. At least that’s what I’ve been told, and I’ve said it to a number of people as well. As I’ve led a team over the past few years, one of the things that has often come up in conversation is perception. How we present...
