Sometimes I feel like I’m asked to be the Dollar Tree…

Have you ever shopped there? It is a store where everything is valued the same, even though we inherently know that everything can’t really only be worth the same $1. Take my time for example: one hour spend mindlessly watching TV is not of the same value as an hour spent with my grandsons. An [...]

Dog Days of Summer?

August used to be ‘the dog days of summer.’ Do you remember that? The temperatures were hot and the summer breezes fled away, and dogs and people sat out on porches relaxing while attempting to stay cool….. So much for that! This August we are all running at mach speeds. School will be back in [...]

Walking with God

Our Walking with God can be full of unexpected adventure and opportunities that we never dreamed of – or not. It can be exciting – exhilarating even – or not. We can either yield to His amazing leadership, or we can say ‘no thank you.’ We can either spend our lives playing it safe, or [...]

Us

Isaiah said, ‘For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given’ (9:6). This morning, after struggling though traffic that was complicated by the first rain in over 40 days, I am struck by the simple word ‘us.’ We live in such a ‘me’, ‘my’ and ‘I’ world; you know, “get out [...]

What We Hold Matters

Glenda and I went zip lining this week. We harnessed up, climbed up a 4000ft tower (OK, maybe 80 feet), allowed a person we have never met to clip us to a steel cable and we stepped out into – nothing. The pre-zip instructions were interesting: ‘you can hold here, (the front line attaching to [...]

New Methods, Same Message

New Methods, Same Message

Years ago I read a book with a catchy title, and I vowed that I would never be one of the people it spoke about. The book title was The Seven Last Words of the Church: We Never Did it That Way Before. It spoke of the need for innovation – and of the resistance [...]

Getting Back to “Normal Life”?

The holidays are over.  I am going to modify my eating habits by leaving behind the days of frozen mocha cheese cake and pecan pie. I have been thinking ‘it will be nice to get back to normal life.’ Then I started the morning with a breakfast meeting at The Marietta Diner. Coffee, orange juice, [...]

The Roman Road

The phrase brings to mind different images and ideas for different people. Historians or archaeologists probably immediately envision the iconic transportation system that enabled Rome to subdue the world and enforce the Pax Romana…the Roman Peace. Evangelists will quickly move to a witnessing pamphlet that outlines a group of scriptures commonly referred to as ‘the [...]

That was wonderful….and here we go again!

I absolutely loved the Missions Conference! I spent a few minutes this morning thinking about my favorite part. I think it was Brian Crow’s question of ‘how do you know when God is finished with you?’ The answer is ‘When you are looking at Him face to face.’ A large part of the purpose of [...]

Listen to Him sing!

Do you ever think that God just doesn’t get it? You try over and over to explain what you need, or want, or demand – and He provides something completely different. That is if you notice that He provided anything at all. There are times when I am asking for chariots of fire or raging [...]
