The Greatest Compliment

September 30, 2009

Saturday afternoon and evening Laura and I kept a little girl so her parents could celebrate their anniversary. At one point Emma asked, “Can I just ask you questions about the Bible?” (Is the Pope Catholic?) “Tell me about the princess who found Moses in the river.” “What was Joseph’s wife’s name? Was she beautiful?” […]

Looking Like Jesus

September 25, 2009

Next week, “Lord, Save Us From Your Followers” opens in our area. If you haven’t heard, this film is a documentary about a guy who traveled America interviewing people about Jesus and his followers – Christians. My immediate response is, “Why do we need another reminder that Christ followers don’t act like Christ?” Later, I […]

Boldness Revisited

September 23, 2009

I was out in Indiana a couple of weeks ago. Didn’t want to be there. Oh, I like Indiana just fine. All the family is there. But I was in town to do the funeral for Bill, my brother-in-law. Tough stuff. But I find it’s easy when I’m doing my “minister” thing to spot the […]

Big Week – Pray Big Prayers!

This week we will be meeting with bankers about a loan. The banker we are working with is a Christian man with long time […]

Feeling the same need for change, they have started The Civility Project. Self-described on their website, The Civility Project is a voluntary, grassroots movement of people from diverse backgrounds who agree […]

New Life: A Place to Belong

September 17, 2009

Our mission at New Life is to “create safe places where people discover God.” So, for me to say that we are a place to belong makes sense. If you visit New Life and aren’t a Christ follower we want you to discover God – God wants you to discover God. We also want you […]

Who You Talking To?

September 15, 2009

It’s Tuesday. It’s life group. It’s God using His word to give us a little shot across the chops. Acts 11. Yeah, we were there last week, but at least we’re in the second half of the chapter. Now, Peter has just reported to the folks in Jerusalem about this Gentile fella, Cornelius, who has […]
