Be the stage don’t seek the stage

By |September 8th, 2022|Categories: Uncategorized|

I think Labor Day is one holiday that seems to have lost its meaning. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all in on Labor Day. I have no problem celebrating work by not working. I’m just not sure we know what we’re celebrating. Me included. So I looked it up. Labor Day originated during one of

Two words that can keep you from a rewarding life

By |August 22nd, 2022|Categories: Uncategorized|

There are two words that many people in our culture live by. I might even say most people. We would likely not be able to identify these two words but when you look at how we act and the priorities we have these two words become obvious. Notice me. How much of our culture screams

Setting Higher Life Goals Than Michael Jordan

By |June 22nd, 2022|Categories: Uncategorized|

There’s a word in our English language that we use to describe somebody who has reached the top. When someone is unmistakably great they are an icon. When I researched cultural icons several names surfaced. Harpers Bizarre Magazine called Princess Dianna, “A fashion icon way ahead of her time.” Mens Health magazine named Harrison Ford,

We long for adventure but pray for the boring

A protagonist in a story is the main character of the story. In your life that’s you. God doesn’t just want you to be the main character of your story, he wants you to be the hero of your story. If we are being honest, this is the kind of life that we secretly want.

You cannot live a fearless life. But you can choose who to fear

By |April 25th, 2022|Categories: Uncategorized|

Advertisers who want to sell you athletic gear and shoes and GoPros and soda would like you to believe that you can live a life without fear, but in my experience there is no outrunning fear. When we are young we fear the dark and monsters under our bed and bad guys and snakes. When

I like Easter but do we always have to talk about death?

By |April 14th, 2022|Categories: Uncategorized|

Most of us are uncomfortable talking about death. We’re careful how we talk about death. Even in cemeteries and funeral homes. In the death care industry, certain terms have been changed to help people feel more comfortable. The deceased is never called a corpse, they are called a “loved one.” The vehicle that carries the

My son just turned 29. Here are 2.9 things I’ve learned about parenting

By |April 4th, 2022|Categories: Uncategorized|

My son just turned 29. That means that I have been at this parenting game for almost 3 decades. Before I had children I used to give messages like “10 rock solid rules for parenting,” but after almost 3 decades the amount of things I don’t know far exceeds the amount of things that I

Does God have a solution to the racial divide?

By |March 7th, 2022|Categories: Uncategorized|

As a pastor I would love to say that the answer to the racial divide can be found in church but unfortunately our history would say otherwise. This is the original design specs for the church when it comes to race. Here there is no Gentile or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave or

What if your job could be done more efficiently without sacrificing success?

By |February 28th, 2022|Categories: Uncategorized|

Once upon a time there were two men who lived in the same forest and decided to have a contest chopping wood. The first man was in good physical shape and very muscular. The second man was in good shape but smaller in statute and wiry. They would chop wood all day and at the
