The Search For Identity
Who am I? Self-assessment: I am 51 years old. I am a second career
pastor. I am an ex-business man. I have struggled with a broken past. I am a
husband. I am a father. I am a child of God. There are many things that “I am”. Growing up, I listened to
The Who...

Shadows dance across the freshly fallen snow. Shadows are always around the light, but never reflecting it. By not reflecting light, a shadow is a form of darkness.

Share The Gospel. Meet The Need. Repeat.
Pelicans are amazing birds. I learned reading National Geographic that most can hold up to three gallons of water in their beak. I think one way hey are amazing is because they don't try to get through life alone. Often times they fish in community and gath...

The Land of Vitamin D
Jacksonville Beach, FL Moving to Minneapolis a year ago, my family and I learned
the value of Vitamin D. For those of you that don’t live up north, a lack of
Vitamin D can have dramatic effects on a person, the least of all depression
known as cabin fever. ...

The Deep Freeze
The frozen Minnehaha Falls, Minneapolis, MN Frozen in time. Being away from writing for six weeks, you would think that thoughts would be frozen in time and roll off the fingertips as I sit to begin blogging again. That isn’t quite the case. AsI sit here th...

Alike But Different
We are all created in the image
of God. Do we see each other that way? What does it mean to be created in God's image? “So God created man in his own image, in
the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.” Genesis
1:27 (ESV) I remember ...

Seeing Clearly Matters
Picking up your glasses with a towel hanging from the earpiece doesn’t work out very well. It sure didn’t take much to snap that arm right off my glasses and make for an interesting Sunday preaching without glasses. I thought about what that message was tea...

The Waiting
Waiting often seems like a long
road that leads to nowhere. I’ve now seen all of the
gifts in the gift shop, drank coffee from two different coffee shops, eaten
