Blind Spots

July 22, 2009

I delivered the same message to each campus beginning 3 weeks ago at Centreville. My focus was on “Leading by Example” and I referred to a Bible verse, which I realized was the wrong reference after the fact. The reference provided in each sermon was Numbers 22 when referencing Solomon’s sin, which he was apparently […]

Read this if you get tired of the journey

July 16, 2009

John Wooden, Basketball’s Coaching Legend once wrote: It’s the road to getting there is the very important part. The end in some ways, it’s exhilarating in some ways, it’s a let-down.

Seeing growth

July 1, 2009

Sometimes growth is easily measured. Our son, Caleb, turned 13 last week. He played his last game of regular season baseball. Overnight, he’s shot up to be as tall as his 15 year old sister! Other times, growth happens underground. The roots grow deeper, but tree appears the same. Logan, our youngest, played another season […]
