A Midyear Review

A Midyear Review

The first half of 2015 has been both a busy and fluid one for Project Renovation. Our own Rick Rhoads, director of the Project, went on a much deserved sabbatical and earned a Doctorate. In addition, my wife and I (Aaron) had a baby boy named Eliot and that changed everything. We’re grateful for God’s faithfulness through a semester full of changes and transitions.

If you’re anything like me, it’s easy to miss out on good stuff in the midst of busyness. Whether it’s because my head is down and my nose is to the grindstone or the periphery blurs when I’m moving at too fast of a pace, it’s easy to overlook some good stuff in the midst of the busyness of the urgent.

In light of that, midway through the year, we thought it might be beneficial to review and highlight some of the posts written for the Project Blog over the past six months. This might be a great time to bookmark some older posts to read during your lighter summer months.

starting right

During the first few months of the year, the Project Renovation blog focused on several different topics inviting us to start the New Year with intentionality and a healthy focus:


Throughout the month of March, we considered how we could better care for the souls of teammates and co-ministers.


In April, we turned our focus more internally and asked the question, “What spiritual disciplines have had a deep and lasting impact on our lives as we live with, love, and serve others?”


Finally, in the month of May, we asked ourselves how we could better invite students into the practice of Spiritual Disciplines as part of their growth.

Speaking on behalf of the writers, let me say that it’s always amazing to see God work through not only the final blog post but also through the writing process. We’re all filled with gratitude as we reflect on the multitude of ways in which God continues to graciously and lovingly form us into the likeness of His Son.

May your summer be a blessed season of walking with Him, and may we all look more like Jesus at the end of the summer than we do right now.
