Hurricane Harvey Relief

By | Blog, Life | No Comments

Whenever I see the catastrophe of Hurricane Harvey, I’m immediately filled with emotion. It reminds me of coming home from the battlefield of Iraq and immediately being greeted by Hurricane Katrina. I went to a young adult beach retreat in Destin, Florida while watching the horror unfold in Louisiana. Catastrophe happens here. And even though we have a stronger ability…

What happened in Charlottesville? That question has ping ponged through my mind all week. I have read news story after news story trying to piece together what happened and what the response of the Christian Church should be. Let’s talk about what happened and what the response should be. What happened? Here is a pretty good video to describe what…

Whose voice are you listening to?

By | Blog | No Comments

Back in my early 20s I went to a church in Fayetteville, NC. Village Baptist Church. Great church. Had the old school choir of about 50 people in it who sang their hearts out every Sunday. And I decided to join it. I’ll never forget as I was leaving the sanctuary one morning, and older man walked up to me…

Search for Significance on a Saturday Morning This morning my two year old son Jett woke me up around 6:30am begging for brexfast. We made our way downstairs and I pulled up a chair for Jett to stand on while I worked on the ingredients for chocolate chip waffles. The smell soon wafted upstairs and my sleepy eyed four year…

Pitfalls to Faith

By | Blog | No Comments

In the book of Luke Jesus encountered a Roman soldier whose faith made him marvel. That is impressive. Only guy in the Bible that gets that kind of reaction from Jesus. Now faith is the way we have access to God and it is also how our access to God was broken. Do you remember Adam and Eve? Satan visited…

Reflecting God to our Kids

By | Blog, Life | One Comment

Being a dad is one of the most incredible things I have ever experienced. I mean I love it. I love being a parent.

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…

Athletics or Smarts Identity Crisis

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…
