The Christian does not think God will love us because we are good, but that God will make us good because He loves us.

Which is why I said I hope that's out of context. It sounds a lot worse by itself than in used to with Lewis. He's one of my favorites.

Read my full review of the new ESV Bible app!
I am loving it! Reader's Mode is killer! You've got to check it out!
For the longest time, the ESV Bible app for iPhone and iPad has been just ok. Of course the translation itself is great and typography in the app was nice, but it was also a bit glitchy, navigation was kind of cumbersome, and the design felt sort of thrown together. To make matters more complicated, … Continue reading ESV fans rejoice–Crosway’s new ESV Bible app is AWESOME.

Best app for podcasts?

I'm avid podcast listener, and almost exclusively on my work-issued iPhone. Wasn't a fan of the Apple app, so I started using PocketCasts which has been really great. Now The Sweet Setup profiles this new app that promises to give me more time to listen to more podcasts!! (with no distortion of sound, no less!).

What do you think? Should I try it out for $5?
There are many podcast clients in the App Store. Our new pick for what we consider to be the best podcast client for iOS is Overcast. Overcast has a very easy-to-use interface, in the year since it was released it has seen frequent updates, and it’s available as a universal iOS app and a web-based …

*Yesterday morning at 10:00 a.m., I was ordained a deacon in God's one, holy, catholic and apostolic church.*

My whirlwind trip to San Antonio began Friday evening at 4:30 p.m., when I flew out of Phoenix with my pastor, Fr. John Dyson. We met up with my brother Stephen late that night and spent some time catching up.

The next morning we participated in the ordination ceremony at Grace Fellowship San Antonio. It was really a fantastic service, full of beautiful liturgy, meaningful music and truth from God's word. 

Bishop Sandy Greene preached a challenging message, calling deacons to be imitators of Jesus' servant leadership. At the end of his sermon, the bishop asked me and Lucy (another ordinand) to stand and charged us to never lose our sense of passion and compassion for God's people, and to also never lose confidence in what God has done in our lives.

He reminded us, "You are here not because you've accomplished anything in yourself and by yourself, but you are here because God has done a great work."

Even though it was a long way to travel in such a short time, it was such a blessing. Everyone at Grace Fellowship San Antonio was so welcoming and kind, and I was so blessed that my brother and my good friends Josh and Anna Tucker were able to be there.

After the service Grace Fellowship provided an amazing lunch (seriously, there is nothing like TexMex, folks. That stuff is good,) and I got to spend a few more hours hanging out with Stephen, Josh and Anna and their awesome kids, and Fr. John. 

We got back to Phoenix last night around 7:00 p.m. This morning I led musical worship and was overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from my home church, Desert Mission Anglican. They even had a reception for me after service (the cake was one of those with a layer of icing in the middle. Such a brilliant idea...like...a cake sandwich). 

The next six months will be further "on the job" ministry training alongside Fr. John and Fr. Scott at DMAC. Those guys know their stuff and I'm so grateful to get to learn from them. God willing I will be ordained a priest in October!

Your continued thoughts and prayers mean so much...thank you!
I am curently pursuing ordination in the Anglican Church, and I need your help. It's been a long road to even get this far. As I look back on my life, it seems God has continually placed me in situations to help others grow in their faith, even when I've not been in vocational ministry. As I've...

I'll show you how to make meditation a habit
https://gumroad.com/products/aALqj/

I created an email course to help you make mediation a habit. 21 emails, full of action steps, encouragement, and food for thought. 
Experience God's presence. Experience God's peace.We live, in fact, in a world starved for solitude, silence, and private: and therefore starved for meditation and true friendship. - C. S. LewisLearn to to become silent, to be still, to practice solitude. Learn to become truly self-aware. Learn to listen to God. Experience joy and peace and community that lasts. Open your entire being to the work of God the Holy Spirit, and be changed by the Trut...

This is a great idea, +Nathan Hale. So many Christians really misunderstand meditation and what it means when spoken of in the scriptures.

Such a comforting thought. We can't always trust ourselves...but we can trust that God is for us when we cling to him and his promises.

Discipleship myths debunked
Discipleship is weak in the institutional church precisely because we buy into false assumptions regarding what discipleship is and how it should be accomplished. Time to challenge some assumptions.
These 5 myths about discipleship need to be debunked once and for all. There is a much richer journey ahead than is often assumed.
