I was watching the Academy Awards the other night. The best and the brightest both on the screen and behind the scenes were recognized for their talent, hard-work, and commitment to their craft. During many of the acceptance speeches there was thanks and praise, celebration of the arts, stories...

Follow Me

In 1 John 4:18 it says “perfect love casts out fear”. But, how many of us trust this? Usually, most of us just try to avoid the things we are afraid of. When Jesus calls us to follow him, he calls us to a courageous love that overcomes and casts out fear. Jesus said, “follow...

Striking Appearance

In 2006 I led our youth group on our very first mission trip. We went to Thousandsticks UMC, Kentucky. Pastor Steve Springer was giving us our instructions and ‘pep-talk’ for the upcoming week. He said something that has remained with me all these years: “Keep your eyes open...

Behold

BEHOLD! We don’t really use this word anymore, so its hard to deliver the impact that the word is supposed to carry. BEHOLD! It’s a word that mixes surprise and wonder with commanding attention. BEHOLD! Is a single word that means...

Rejoice

We have a phrase to describe being committed…   we say we are ‘giving 100%’ or we are ‘giving it our all’, or we are ‘all in’.  Sometimes, when we use the phrase, we are simply describing our investment in something we love but which may...
