Worth Dying For

What is it that you find so valuable in your life that you’d not only live for it, you’d die for it? It’s been on my mind lately…those things that I cherish so much that life seems relatively unimportant in comparison. “To me, to live is Christ and to die is gain”…I agree with Paul’s …

Memorable…Portable

I don’t know if anyone knows this, but the address to this post contains the phrase “value God”. It’s a Vision Statement for a community of believers that are linking arms and doing life together. To know that if we have Him, we have all we’ll ever need…or as it was so intimately expressed in …

A Bundle of Joy

I’m sitting here thinking about what it means to be a father for the 5th time. “Incredible” is the word that comes to mind to describe how I feel about it…though no way it covers it. When I think back to the night last week when Kathy shared “our BIG NEWS” with me for the …

Belief and Tradition

It’s early on Monday morning and I’m sitting here with a coffee and a computer thinking about what to jot down in this post. Not that there’s nothing to write about…too much to write about. The Sunday before Wild Week was an incredible day filled with new friends; intimate (yet so vibrant) worship music; laughter; …

Wild!

The Friday and Saturday before Wild Week have been a crazy blur. In fact this has been a pretty “wild week” altogether, but as it comes to an end and I take a moment to reflect…wow! I already know this is going to be a pivotal time for us as a church as we get …

Crucified!

When I read about the crucifixion I shudder at the suffering…the agony…the pain…the loss. Every moment, every aspect of Christ’s ordeal during the crucifixion as well as the hours leading up to it are horrific. Why then would Paul so boldly proclaim that he has been “crucified with Christ”? What possible reason would he have …

An Enduring Light

Did anyone see them last night? I have plans to go again tonight, but I saw the night-before-the-fourth version too. It was a very good 16 minute firework display (somebody told me that’s how long they lasted…interesting that you’d be timing that sort of thing). During the presentation, my kids kept yelling “Smiley Face!” It …

Still Processing

It’s Tuesday morning, and I’m still processing Sunday’s corporate worship. Between you and me, I’ve named our time together as we pour our hearts before the Lord. I call it “Worthy”. He’s always worthy of the praises of His people…of His children dancing, dancing, dancing in His presence…for His glory…His delight, but I’ve never seen …
