Always On Time

I was 46 when I attended my first Wild at Heart Boot Camp in CO in 2003. I didn’t know what a mess I was…I had an inkling, but I thought I was ok, sort of. You know what I am talking about, right?

At the time I was a full time Young Life Area Director with over 20 years of youth ministry under my belt. Even though I had a raging anger, was critical of others, and I had a secret addiction to pornography and masturbation…I appeared on the outside to be a pretty normal Christian man. I attended church, read my Bible, had a pretty consistent QT (quiet time), and was passionate about leading kids to Jesus.

Killing Giants – 3

Goliath has struck fear into the entire Israelite Army for 6 weeks! Morning and evening the soldiers rally their spirits, get their gear on, and prepare for battle. As they run to the front line to face their enemy, Goliath steps forward and bellows his treats and the soldiers turn and run.

Killing Giants – 2

As I said in Killing Giants part 1, I love looking at the Old Testament stories with a fresh set of eyes. While most of us have read the story of David and Goliath, we tend to only focus on the young shepherd boy who defeats the giant Goliath with a slingshot and a smooth stone. Don’t get me wrong, I also love a story where the good guys win. Yet there is so much more for us to consider in the larger story.
