Waiting is never easy.  Rarely would we choose to wait in a long line, or for a service to be performed, even for a child to be born—if we didn’t have to.  We generally don’t like people who make us wait, or things that “just take too long.”  We live in a high speed, fast-food, instant “everything” society.  Whi...

How much of your glory do I miss each day?  If you told me, I‘m afraid it would be too much to bear.  Some days you are so convincing and visceral, when it seems creation worships in unison or when strained relationships are mended.  Some days you’re obvious to me in fresh peaches and constellations and stranger...

Almost twenty years ago I saw the Eagles Reunion Tour.  I was in my late twenties when I heard Don Henley sing, “Learn To Be Still”. I liked it then and I like it now. But wow, there is a vast difference in the way it speaks to me in my forties than the way it did back then.

 

Now I hear in Henley’s voice the echo...

Books have played an important part in the lives of almost every great leader in history, and it is no surprise to find that they played such a significant role in the life of C. S. Lewis. Long before he made the study of literature his chosen profession, books had been a major part of his development. Even had...

 

Football season is underway.  This time of year, the National Football League offers us astounding athletic skill sets put to the test week after week. This is no joke. These guys are strong, fast, and capable of delivering and withstanding physical trauma the likes of which we don’t see in many other sports. W...

Through the years, I’ve become an expert at feeling bad. And New Year's Day puts my expert skills into overdrive. I assess my plans & goals over the past year and review the things I've accomplished and the things I didn’t. I feel great about my successes. The things I’ve failed at, forgotten, or left unfinished...

The season of Christmas is one in which we emphasize how God comes to us. Immanuel. God with us. Or perhaps, as we tend to think of it, God with us, rather than we with God. And so God comes to us, embodied in Jesus.

 

But it seems the minute Jesus gets here, he starts turning ta...

Most of the time, my hope is in Jesus. Other times? The ones I hate to admit, yet still occur? I hope for Jesus.

 

Which means that most of the time I believe He is right with me—by my side—His Holy Spirit filling me. And then there are those “3:00-In-The-Morning-And-I’m-Going-To-Die” moments. (Ok, hours)

 

The hour...

At the conclusion of Winter 2015, the team got together over dinner and reflected on all we learned, witnessed, and held in our hearts that weekend. The conversation was loud and lively and filled with the richness of a time spent reflecting on peace and all it means. Here is a glimpse into some of our conversat...
