Still Thankful

Now that the Turkey is finished, the football’s been watched, and the naps have been taken, we’re all pretty much ready to move on to the next thing.

Giving Thanks in Every Season

Giving Thanks When Its Easy We have all read books and listened to sermons about having joy and giving thanks through devastating circumstances.  We have heard great stories of how God has changed hearts and captivated souls in the midst of tragedy.  But what about before that, when things are easy?  Can we love God […]

Fresh Eyes

Everyone needs fresh eyes. I’ve heard it said that “Those who can’t do, teach.  Those who can’t teach, consult.” *Bah Dum Tss* Here’s one more: Consultants might get a bad reputation from time to time, but in reality, they can provide helpful insight and new ideas to our situation(of course, most of them have done […]

Expressing and Experiencing the Gospel

Expressing and Experiencing the Gospel

As “professional” communicators of the Gospel many of us have spent years intensely studying and learning how to invite others to follow Jesus.    We’ve read books, rehearsed presentations, perhaps even taught others how to share it. The Gospel is our passion, in many ways; it’s our craft, ministry, even our job.  For many of us […]

A Prayer for Your Students

And My prayer for you One of the first summers that I was on staff here at Arrowhead, I took the staff through the book of Colossians. We didn’t get very far into the book before it started making a huge impact. The beginning of Paul’s prayer (Col. 1:9-10) thundered off the page at me. […]

Connecting the Dots

The Life Map A few months ago I participated in a retreat designed to provide rest and relaxation in conjunction with spiritual formation.  Our focus for the weekend was to examine where we have seen God (and where we had sometimes missed seeing Him) at work in our lives. Part of the retreat was a […]

Nobody Reads the ToS. When was the last time you gave electronic permission through a ToS? You might even be asking, “What’s a ToS?” Chances are you’ve seen them all the time and have never stopped to think about them. A ToS, if you haven’t Googled it yet is a “Terms of Service” and it’s […]

Life is like…

What’s your life metaphor? Shakespeare once wrote, “All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players.” It’s a fairly poignant way of looking at the world, and one that seems perfectly natural coming from a playwright. He saw the world through the lens of his passion and work… the theater.  I’ve […]
