Liar or Lover?

I have some favorite words.  I’m sure you do too.  There are a lot of words I like for the way they sound, like STEADFAST!  What a great word!  I want to be steadfast.  There are other words I like because of what they represent like “breakfast.”  I’m a big fan of breakfast – anyContinue reading “Liar or Lover?”

Real Faith ALIVE

There are two statements that have stuck in my heart this as I listened to Jesus Manifesto, a book I had previously read. “Jesus didn’t come to make bad people good.  he came to make dead people live.” -Jesus Manifesto “It’s possible to serve God without loving him, but it is impossible to love GodContinue reading “Real Faith ALIVE”

It satisfies my longings as nothing else can do. My recent ambition to write comesContinue reading “Tell the Story”

Every day you live, you can Make A Difference.  Each day holds new opportunities to do good.  Opportunities which are different for each of us and have specifically been designed for us.  In fact, you and I have appointments today with people whose names we do not yet know.

Love Deeper (oh to be the kind of worshiper the Father seeks)

Have you ever sat in a restaurant and, overhearing the conversation at the table next to you, wish you could pull up a chair and listen, or even join in? Today, at lunch, I overheard five men who were engaged in a conversation regarding the worship at their church.  Scratch that. Two men were talkingContinue reading “Love Deeper (oh to be the kind of worshiper the Father seeks)”

The Tongue (caution! hazardous when in use)

Beware of the backhanded complement.  Yes, I mean you… and me… and all of us.  This is a caution to anyone with a tongue. Pastor Joe was right on Sunday! Boy, do I need to hear that sermon everyday!  Note to self; Speak Sweeter!  I’m not saying that I’m a foul mouth, though I couldContinue reading “The Tongue (caution! hazardous when in use)”

Bonhoeffer

Well, I finally finished reading Bonhoeffer. It is a long book, but it didn’t feel long. Eric Metaxas did a wonderful job of giving it flow and of course, Bonhoeffer’s life itself kept me turning the pages. I was equally enlightened and challenged in my faith and my call to interact with my world aroundContinue reading “Bonhoeffer”

The Centrality of Jesus in Worship

Thank you for allowing me, this past Sunday to share with you about worship. I’ve heard it said about me that my passion is worship. Let me amend this assumption, by saying that my true passion is WHO I worship – Jesus. As I mentioned Sunday, our worship starts with Jesus. As we reach outContinue reading “The Centrality of Jesus in Worship”

Next Read – Bonhoeffer

Finally finished JESUS MANIFESTO and it was worth taking my time. So full of words that point the soul in the direction of Jesus Christ. As a worship leader, I long to point to Jesus week after week – more so now, after reading this book, than ever. Interesting that in this book were severalContinue reading “Next Read – Bonhoeffer”
