God’s Up to Something!

I know, it’s a stupid headline. Of course God is up to something! He’s always up to something, right? But, in this case I mean something specific. About 18 months ago, my accountability partner and I started noticing something new happening. God was directing us to clear off our plates of all the extra stuff […]

Men, Ministry and Sexual Misconduct

The Bill Hybels sexual misconduct allegations and subsequent falling dominos at Willow Creek Community Church have spawned a number of articles, including some I’ve written! Today, I’ve seen a couple posts on Christian blogs about pastoral conduct and it has spurred me to put down my own thoughts on the matter. So, if you dare, […]

What is Wrong With You People?

These past 10 days or so have been a little difficult. I have found myself in the awkward and uncomfortable position of having to correct a couple of my fellow Christians regarding their actions, which is never fun. I keep asking myself the same question: “What is wrong with these people? Why can’t they do […]

Giving Up the Good for the Great

I teach a lot of DVD-based small group curriculum in our adult Sunday school class; one of my favorite presenters is Craig Groeschel of Lifechurch.tv. He’s a younger guy with energy and is very real about the topics on which he teaches. During one of his discussions he landed on a problem all busy people […]

So What?

It’s been a couple of weeks since I have written anything. It’s not that I haven’t had things to say, rather I’ve been in one of those cranky moods where it’s better just to keep your mouth shut! However, I think I’m on the back-end of it so I’ll take a chance and put some words […]

Discouragement

I’ve been a little discouraged lately. It’s funny because I know that what I’m discouraged about I shouldn’t be, but that’s the thing about our emotions – it doesn’t matter how we should feel; sometimes we just feel differently regardless of the facts. Last April I published my book  Do You Want to Be Healed? […]

Clay in the Hands of the Master

Our adult Sunday school is watching Greg Groeschel’s Alter Ego series, which focuses on becoming the people God created us to be instead of the people we are who have been shaped by the world. It certainly is not an easy transformation but one that is vital if we are to find healing and purpose […]

Holy Discontent

We just completed a study called Weird by Craig Groeschel in our adult Sunday school. I really enjoy Groeschel’s stuff – he’s honest and to the point. Weird was a six-part series challenging Christians to live a life that most people would consider weird. As Christians we are to love our enemies, pray for those […]

Entertained by Sin

We watched the last in a five-part series by Craig Groeschel called Soul Detox today in our Sunday morning adult Bible study. I’ve been writing about these classes for the past couple week, because I think Craig has great insight to the struggle we have as Christians living in a toxic world. Today Craig focused […]

Toxic Fear

Last week I did a post about the first video in a series by Craig Groeschel called Soul Detox. I was really impressed with his teaching on toxic language. I taught the second video today in Sunday school and thought I’d share about what Craig calls “Scared Pollution” or toxic fear. The gist of the […]
