Mission

If you are loveless, you will be sightless


Prayer, Race, Mission

Hello friends. In this little window to make a post, Facebook asks, "What's on your mind?" Well, that's a loaded question, and I imagine you could answer in lots of ways right now. This week the murder of George Floyd has been heavy on my mind. As I have been grieving and lamenting this tragedy and the repeated nature of these things in our country, it occurred to me that when we are loveless, we are sightless, in ways that blur our vision of people as image-bearers of God. While I was contemplating all of this, the Lord called out some of my own blindness, ouch. But at the same time, he also gently reminded me that he came to give sight to the blind. I know this video is a bit longer than my usual devotional thoughts, but if you have 10 minutes, I hope you'll take a listen, perhaps it will help you. I love ya, and I'm praying for you.

Focus on the Mission, not the Model


Leadership, The Church, Mission

Hello Friends! How are you doing? I've noticed lots of people looking backwards these days. Now please don't hear me wrong, remembering and learning from our past is a good and helpful thing. Our challenge is not idolizing our past so much that it prevents us from moving forward into what God might have next for us. Hear these words from Isaiah 43 and commit to being #futureoriented. Have a beautiful and blessed day! I love ya.

On Having Conversations


Soul Care/Emotional Health, Leadership, Mission

Hello friends, how are you doing? My encouragement for you today is to observe and listen to others closely, so closely that you'll be able to engage in real conversation rather than distancing yourself and condemning (or appearing to condemn) those who think and live differently than you do. Paul gives us a nice picture of what this looks like in Acts 17 when he talks with the people of Athens about their idolatry. He opens a door rather than slamming one shut. I have faith you and I can follow his lead and be people who open dialog instead of shutting it off. #starttheconversation
