A Few Thoughts on Protests and Sharing a Meal Together

I had the privilege last night of sitting down for a meal with 3600 or so friends and neighbors; people I know well and some I don’t know at all. It was wonderful and, it was powerful. But, it made me think. I had, like so many watched NFL players kneel or remain in the locker...

Q&A about adding a second worship service

1. Why do we need two services? The biggest reason we need to go to two services is because we want to reach more people with the life changing message of Jesus Christ. In our culture and community, when you add options, you add participants. We are nearing our capacity in our...

Top Ten Reasons to Skip Church:

All (yes all) pastors from time to time mistakenly tie their self-worth to how many people are sitting in front of them on Sunday morning. So it always seems a little self-serving to tell people to come to church. But most of the time my heart and the heart of the other great...

Fun with big words.

I’m not what you would call an “intellectual elite.” I did graduate High School in the top fifty of my class, but there were only sixty two of us. I have not yet finished seminary, but I do have a Bachelors of Arts in Outdoor Recreation: a degree that really should be a...

Prayer, a time of pure awesomeness

I was in the Roastery the day after Paddlefest here in Buena Vista – If you are not from around here, Paddlefest is a super fun weekend that celebrates all the amazing fun we get to have here on the Arkansas River. One of the big draws is the freestyle kayaking competition....
