God Makes a Way and the Target Lady

When you buy several hundred dollars worth of candy for the West Halloween event, it causes cashiers to ask questions. It’s a great “lead-in” to tell people about West, etc. so I try not to “miss” those opportunities. I was inviting the ...

Hauntings of Failure and Pain

What is something that haunts you? We each have things that haunt us. Things we’ve done wrong and also the wrongs that have been done to us. If we aren’t careful, those are the things that cloud our minds and are huge obstacles to our being at ...

Feelings Can Become Behaviors

What makes you want to say “thanks?” Anne Lamott, in her book Help, Thanks, Wow shares that thanks is “gratitude for an unexpected grace.” Have you ever had someone “make” you say “thank you?” It isn’t effective, is it? It doesn’t really ...

Transformational Unexpected Gifts

Just a “normal gift” was so much more. Apparently, Oct. 10 was “Pastor Appreciation (PA) Day.” I wasn’t aware there was a specific Sunday for that, or if I knew, I blocked it out. This is not whining, but just stating facts. Trying to figure ...

Why Bother Saying “Thank You”?

Have you ever wondered why we should bother saying thank you to someone? I mean, what’s the point? Shouldn’t they know that we’re grateful? Especially if it’s somebody that we have a relationship with? For just a minute I’d encourage us to ...

God Moments from Ted Lasso

"Every breath you take And every move you make Every bond you break Every step you take I'll be watching you." Lyrics from a Grammy award-winning song years ago by the Police. If you are a fan of the show Ted Lasso, it was highlighted in ...

Not Everything is Instantaneous

Hopefully, by now you’ve received your “Faith Infusion Box.” Inside the box, you’ll find a balloon. Sunday, in in-person worship, I encouraged you to blow up your balloon, rub it vigorously against your hair and then put it up against your ...

“Honey, I’m Home!”

Once in the middle of the night, I got up to get a glass of water. I closed the refrigerator and glanced up and screamed. There was a person in the other room, staring right back at me! Because I was half asleep and it was dark other than the ...

Hocus Pocus

When's the last time you really wanted the "right" words to say to someone, but no matter how hard you tried, you just couldn't find them? Or, when's the last time you wanted someone to listen to you but because of other distractions or things ...

Peace Comes with Focus: The Homeless Man vs. a Gun

Typically in both worships (online & on-site), the message is the same. Yesterday was different. It was a "No Huddles Day" - when the message is shorter, and for the in-person site, the auditorium doesn't have all the "frills," and we ...

Promises and Loyalty

How big of a deal are promises to you? When people promise you something, do you really COUNT on it? Or do you suspect that there are some chances that they won’t live into or up to their promises and they simply won’t come true? I don’t know ...

Can All of Us Do a Triathlon?

It seems we are struggling to find that norm in our personal, professional, and spiritual lives. It's so easy to want things to be "like they used to be" instead of looking at situations and trying to figure out how we can find the ...
