Have You Ever Broken the Rules?

Have You Ever Broken the Rules?

It was my junior year of high school and for some horrific reason I had “Keyboarding 2.”  Apparently whatever academic class I wanted was full, so I got my THIRD choice of elective . . . and back then I didn’t have the wisdom to question or ...
Competing in any kind of race has never been my thing.

Competing in any kind of race has never been my thing.

I think I was scarred as a young child with field days. Sack Races, Three-Legged Races, Relay Races, 50 Yard Dash, 100 Yard Dash, I could go on and on . . .  I HATED field day. I’d rather go to the dentist and get a cavity filled with no pain ...
“My Life is Better Than Yours” Picture

“My Life is Better Than Yours” Picture

A year ago at Annual Conference, I connected with a clergy colleague I’d not seen in a long time. For some reason, his FB feed never showed up as I scrolled social media so I had no idea he’d lost a ton of weight. He looked great! He looked fit ...
We Keep “Should-ing” All Over Each Other

We Keep “Should-ing” All Over Each Other

We Keep “Should-ing” All Over Each Other We live in the “Land of Er” . . . words were spoken by Andy Stanley, the pastor of North Point Church in Atlanta, Georgia. We strive to be “ER” . . . Smart-ER Rich-ER Thin-ER Pretty-ER Successful-ER We ...
OCD – Obsessive Comparison Disorder

OCD – Obsessive Comparison Disorder

It’s summertime. So let’s be honest. How many of us will find ourselves either in a conversation with someone about vacation and we begin thinking, “Wow, that sounds really cool! We only did __________. Must be nice to be them.” Or . . . we ...
Just Being Ourselves

Just Being Ourselves

So often when we think of God, we think of a gender-specific individual with physical attributes. For years “God the Father” has been a phrase used to describe the Trinity, so while there is nothing wrong with that, it limits our view of God . ...
Coffin of Selfishness

Coffin of Selfishness

C.S. Lewis said, “To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it ...
The “ideal” family

The “ideal” family

Sometimes “ideal” gets in the way. For years when I’ve heard people reference “ideal images of a family” – the show “Leave it to Beaver” came up. This was a television show in the late 50s and early 60s that showed the antics of little ...
Fully Present to Ourselves

Fully Present to Ourselves

We have to figure out how to be present to ourselves before we can be present to others, including God. Often times in life we can’t figure out why we feel as if we are spinning our wheels when others around us seem to have it all ...
Coming Off Cruise Control

Coming Off Cruise Control

When is the last time you spent a significant amount of time in silence? Total and complete silence. No emails popping up, no text message notifications on your phone. No music or tv in the background. Silence. A silence that allowed you to ...
Fully Present

Fully Present

When we are in relationship with one another it is important to be fully present. When Andrew and Layne were small Scott and I used to think we could “fool them” that we were fully listening and we would try to multi-task throughout their ...
What did you hear?

What did you hear?

Yesterday there was a huge debate over whether or not you heard “Yanny” or “Laurel” as an audio clip of a word was played. For a few minutes three Smiths sat in great debate over who heard what word. Clearly Scott and Layne heard it one-way ...
