Forever Marriage vs. Serial Monogamy

By | Blog | No Comments

Whenever I meet with couples for counseling, many want to know the secret to a long lasting marriage. They want their marriage to last forever. They will marvel at the divorce rate, see their friends struggling, and wonder if it is possible to actually make it to “till death do us part.” As I have been pondering our next sermon…

Out of Office: Leaving Everything.

By | Blog, Life | No Comments

Out of Office When I read this verse, I think of Levi plopping an “out of office” sign on his desk and leaving. But let’s try and put our heads where Levi was at. Levi was unmarried, probably a young adult. Marriage may not have been his thing. Commitment might have always been a bridge too far. Plus, what father would hand…

By | Blog | No Comments

When I was 12 turning 13 I had a real identity crisis. Although I know that puberty was an identity crisis all of it’s own that’s not the subject I’ll cover here. When I was growing up in Texas, I was a “smart” kid. I built my identity on it. Being the first one done on quizzes and tests was…

MLK Day: Comfort or Christ?

By | Blog | No Comments

Happy MLK day! As a person who grow up after the main thrust of the civil rights movement, I was ignorant to much of the plight of Martin Luther King Jr. and what he sacrificed for his convictions. I looked up his history and found that there were about 9 overt attempts on his life. From a stabbing, to bombings, to…

How do you respond?

By | Blog | No Comments

Christmas has been packed up, the tree recycled, and the decorations put away. There was one thing that this Christmas showed me from my boys. We have to be taught how to respond to all situations. My oldest son, Austin, after the final present was opened, said “More presents. I want to open more presents.” Now he is three and…

Can’t Sleep?

By | Blog | No Comments

  Read Daniel 2 There are a couple things that will make me not sleep. If I take a nap during the day or if I drink caffeine after 5pm, I’m wired all night. Or if there is something bothering me, a conversation didn’t go well, there is something wrong with my wife or sons, that will keep me up….
