The Hardest Day.

It’s 5:15am and mum comes in… “He’s heading downhill, we’ve gotta get to ICU”. So we blearily climb out of our beds and dress, last night was a night filled with tears and sorrow, today we have to make a very hard decision. The drive is silent, as we drive the Three Tenor’s play in the…

The Islands.

There are three islands in the world, Average, Honor and Shame. On each of these islands there lives a number of people. Some people start on Honor island, but most of us start on either Average or Shame Island. Average island is where the majority of the population dwells. Our hope is one day to…

I’ve been battling a little with Normal. I just don’t think the measure for normal is correct. What constitutes normal? What makes our family normal? What means that all things at home are normal? Is it health? Finances? Equilibrium? It seems that what is normal varies household to household. Your normal isn’t my normal and…

Grief in Trials.

There needs to be trials and troubles that befall you. Without a doubt we can make a case for based on scripture that trials and troubles will beset you in life. With a new series looming on Peter I was really struck by this passage… In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little…

Imagine that you walk through life carrying two things in your hands. In one hand is a gift, perfectly wrapped and finished with a bow. The wrapping paper is ornate and intricate. The precision in which it has been wrapped makes it simply marvelous to look at. In your other hand is a cup of…

This blog has probably been a year in the making. Every time I sit down to type it out I chicken out. After a prolonged period of healing I feel in a better place to share. These Points for the failure and ultimate close of the church plant are more personal reflection, for personal healing.…

Tension on the Line.

I have felt for a season a requirement to be much more patient than I have been. A season where everything is pushing me to slow, but all I want to do is run. I want to bolt. I want the lines to be loosed and the blinkers to come off. I want to shoot…

Infinite Crisis is what ministry can feel like. That relentless barrage of noise the explodes right under your nose. At any given moment in your community people are at the best and the worst of times. It’s wedding season for someone, and there is crisis. Someone loses a loved one, and there is crisis. If…

Circle Up.

There is a moment right at the end of Joshua when he calls the team together. He details the history of everything that has gone on until this point. He highlights the leading and work of God and then before Israel says. “But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” (Joshua…

A Geyser of Poop.

I watched yesterday as our pipes were unclogged and a geyser of poop erupted about 2ft  out of the ground and in a brown thick stream ran down the driveway. As I sat and watched, what was most likely months of buildup dissipate I couldn’t help but feel like this was some kind of a…
