0 Comments 30 September 2013

  I’m surrounded by weddings right now. Officiated a ceremony Saturday, started pre-marital counseling for another couple Sunday, and will soon be headed out the door traveling to another wedding this weekend.

  Another year has ended. It’s time to name the best books of 2012. As I’ve said again and again, choosing early on to read for spiritual growth was one of the best habits I’ve ever formed. I hope one of the books I mention here tempts you to read for spiritual growth also. I [...]

Inconsistent

4 Comments 17 July 2012

  I am inconsistent. Sometimes I do really well. Sometimes I don’t. For example, this blog. I intend to write content every week. Sometimes that happens. Sometimes it doesn’t. For several weeks. In a row. To the point I’m a bit embarrassed to start again. But this isn’t about writing. In every part of my [...]

Love is a Trip to Branson

  Joe passed away in January. He and his wife were in the 6th decade of their marriage, and in that decade, they had begun a tradition of driving to Branson, Missouri once or twice a year to hear a particular singer perform. All the way there – about 7 hours – they’d play her [...]

Why It’s Okay To Be More Than ‘Just a Christian’

0 Comments 26 January 2012

  You know that one relative who asks you the same question at every family gathering? Or that guy in the office who regurgitates what he heard on sports-radio all day, every day?
