In 2019 I saw the Double Nickel

What an odd title for a blog post. Yes, I guess it is. Last year I made my 55th pass around the sun. For me that was a bit of an accomplishment.  Several years ago I wrote about one of my greatest childhood heroes, my dad. I was just eleven years old when I watched […]

Expansion – My One Word for 2020 – Part II

Right before the turn of the new decade I declared, “Expansion,” as my one word for 2020. In that post I mentioned I really did not have a lot of clarity for how Expansion will impact my year. In just the few days since then I have gained some clarity.  You can read part one […]

Expansion – My One Word for 2020 – Part I

I don’t have a “one word” every year but on the years that I do they seem to just show up. I don’t go through some exercise to think one up. They could be seeds planted by the Holy Spirit or they could be my imagination. What I do know is when they do show […]

When Everyone is a Heretic

Just over a week ago we had the great John MacArthur – Beth Moore kerfuffle. The complementarians and the egalitarians lined up against one another and waged a great war on social media.

Will You Hold My Hand?

Back in August I wrote a blog post on living a life of grace and mercy where I talk about meeting a homeless man, Eric. Now I want to take a moment to tell you about meeting Chip back in October. Once again I was taking my lunch break to explore the city streets of […]

Effective – My One Word for 2018

I am not sure who started the one word craze but in 2015 my word was “Generous.” In 2016 it was “Focus.” I did not have one for 2017. I am not one to randomly pick a word the word has to come to me. Our associate Pastor was preaching on New Year’s Eve and […]

What is your LifeView?

Many people like to talk about their worldview but one’s lifeview is more focused and has a greater impact on our everyday life. It is a bit of a cliché to ask if you view life as half full or half empty but the old adage explains how you approach your life. When you woke […]

Did Curiosity Really Kill the Cat?

Curiosity is not allergic to failure. Curiosity drives you to the haunted house because the thrills lie in what we don’t expect, not in what’s safe. – Seth Godin Are you curious? When is the last time you explored something new? When is the last time you read a book about a topic you have […]

Have We Lost the Pioneer Spirit?
