On Community

I think I’ve realized that I thrive being in community…in work, play, and life in general. When I don’t spend time processing with other people, getting feedback, sharing ideas and frustrations, and being around others I start to misfire. I just feel funky and out of sorts. Even going days with a lot on my…

Writing to myself

Well…I think it’s official. I am writing on this blog for myself. It’s been neglected, unmaintained, and I am all alone with my thoughts and reflections…and in fact, this post has taken me 3 different times of sitting down to finish! So, with that being said… This morning I was reading about time and what…

Above All?

I’m teaching a bit from the book of James for a group this Sunday night…because I want to get the context right, I’ve decided to read through the whole book a bit. I was surprised when I came to 5:12… “But above all , my brothers, do not swear eitehr by heaven or by earth…

Searching for a Savior…

This morning I watched the Obama inauguration and to be honest, it was moving. This is a historic moment in world history and I am thankful to be alive to experience it. (I think that hype and celebrity may even make this historic event too much about pop-culture and some may miss the true global impact of…

Random Reflections on Relationships…

I really just got the urge to write…this has been rare for me as you can tell by the serious lack of posts lately.  But I wanted to write about relationships…just some random, semi-unconnected thoughts I really love relationships with people when I have a history with people. Don’t get me wrong, love new friends…but…

Looking Alike

For some reason the line from Acts 4 ‘they recognized that they had been with Jesus’ has been on my mind a lot. In the context of Acts it was Peter and John’s boldness that provoked this statement. They were ordinary people, fisherman, yet their wisdom was bold and it was apparent that there was…

Another Imperfect Person is Elected

  No, I don’t know who won the election already because I live further east…I wrote this title in past tense because it is simply a future reality.  It seems on Facebook that everyone is using their status to communicate something about their opinions on the election, but that’s just not enough room for me!…

Remember the days when…

Remember the days when the simplicity of the Gospel was protected, taught, and fought for? Remember the days when leaders would rather stand alone with the Gospel, than stand in a crowed with a shade of it? I read Galatians this morning and let’s just say…Paul really brings the pain here. Not in a, “You…

Simplicity

I’ve been reading through 1 John the last few days. Today this part stuck out to me: 1 John 3:23 This is [God’s] commandment: to believe in his Son, the one named Jesus Christ, and to love each other as he commanded us. Those who obey Christ’s commandments live in God, and God lives in…

Home…

I think that I’m realizing something more clearly now than ever: I miss the feeling of home. I miss ownership of space. I would have thought this was weird more than a year ago, but after this season of life I am finding myself wanting to sit at my own table, clean my own kitchen,…

Nervous…

The last few months have been a blur…since deciding to return to Europe and follow God’s call in our lives there we have had a lot on our minds. Easily, the most weighing issue on my mind has been our support. Over the past nine months we’ve lost, oh…just a bit…sarcasm.  It’s amazing how much…

Content being a suburban idealist

I love cities…I think it’s because I love people and there is no shortage of people in cities. I love the energy in cities. I love the sounds. I love the bustle. I love the diversity. I love the density. Sure, this can all get old, but for the most part it gives me energy…

I want to be a worship rock star

I’m in one of those moods. So, forgive me if this is too much pessimism…and if this resonates with you…let’s move from beyond complaining to figuring out some real answers and some real ways to frame worship…enough disclaimer.  So, my brother-in-law and I were watching some worship stuff on tv by a really well known…
