The Power of the Table

We live in an increasingly disconnected world. While everyone is walking around with a device which allows for instant information and communication, we are becoming more and more disconnected from one another. We are communicating more by text messages. There is less phone conversation, not to mention face to face conversation.

Out of Alignment

I was feeling pretty proud of myself the other day when I made an appointment to take my van in to get the tires rotated. More often than not I remember to take it in way over the recommended mileage and the tire guy sort of rolls his eyes and gives me a little speech about the importance of getting the tires rotated on scheduled. However, this time I was right on the money and feeling good about it.

I knew something was up when he came back out only a few minutes after I gave him the keys. His first question was, so how long has it been since you had a front-end alignment?

Willingness

I have worked with people that are smart, religious, theological, powerful, determined, weak, confused, lost and everything in-between.  The one common denominator of those who find the healing, restoration and freedom that they are looking for is if they are simply willing.  If someone is willing to keep the field open instead of being closed minded to what God is doing, then they can move forward.  If they can’t, they won’t.

Good Soil

2018 was a fascinating year for me.  I’ve been working on my heart – or more appropriately the Trinity has been – for 12 years now.  In 2018 some real truths seemed to find good soil and put down deep roots.

It started on January 20th when I was called into the executive board room by my boss at my company.  There I met the new Chief Human Resource Officer for the first time as I was fired from my job.

Is God Mad?

Have you ever wondered where some of our deep beliefs about God actually come from? Or better yet, have you ever taken the time to ask Jesus to reveal some of the lies that you believe about him? I thought that might get your attention.

Could it be possible that some of the things you and I have learned about God could be false, or only partially true? I am one of those guys that that isn’t afraid to turn over a few rocks in search of the truth. Honestly, sometimes it feels risky…you know, thinking that at any moment a group of law-abiding Christians are going show up and start chucking rocks at me.
