Sorry again for my lack of posting.  I've had a hard time getting started, I think because I'm behind and have a list of things I need to write.  It will happen.  Anyway, here is my life as a parent with two sons who are 200% boy and always full tilt.  READ THIS post by my wife at HER BLOG.

Risky Buisness…

We have been teaching a series called "Going Deep" over the last few weeks and it has been an awesome experience for me because it has been shaping me as I teach it.  The thing I have been pondering is how we mostly present Christianity as a belief system instead of a way of life.  Our faith was intended to be a way of life.  God models this for us.  We know 1 John 4:8 says [...]

Going Deep Pt. 1

Last week I started a new teaching series at The Dwelling Place entitled "Going Deep."  It was prompted by something I posted a few days back where I said "Going Deep is our part, going Big is God's part."  As I was reflecting on Acts 2 I noticed something that jerked me back like a dog on a leash. We have a tendency as church pastors and church planter to give in to the pressure [...]

L: Nothing. S: I hear everything.... S: You wrote "The world does not need a Savior, but every day I hear people crying out for one." Isn't that so true.  If you have [...]
