You Can Never Go Back to the Way It Used to Be
A Daily Lenten Devotion Can you think of a time that you were given freedom to do something you’d always really wanted to do and you LOVED it?? There was no going back to the way it used to be! When I first began my career in ministry 26 ...
“Why do you save what you save?”
Growing up I used to be mortified because two times a year my father would insist on going to Fort Bragg for grocery shopping. He was career military, serving in 3 wars, WWII, Korea, and Vietnam, and felt strongly that he should utilize the career military perks that came once he retired.

Psychedelics and “In and Through”!

Have you ever had a horrible teacher??
A Daily Lenten Devotion Who is the worst teacher you ever had? I’m not sure I would have been able to understand Chemistry WITH a good teacher, but I would have at least had a fighting chance. Mr. Williams (fictitious name) was my Chemistry ...

What A Cluster …
Well, the e-news is a tad bit late because it has been QUITE a cluster trying to get to the airplane gate. This week has had not enough time and a few too many tasks :-). This trip has been "in the works" 4 different times . . . and today ...
6 AM Panera & Shoveling Cement
When the conference asked us to launch a campus of Williamson’s Chapel, we had no idea that it would ultimately give birth to a “legit” church. And even though we are a “church” - we prefer to reference West as a movement. A movement of community, real people doing real life and sharing God’s love in real ways.
“Letting That S*%@ Go!”
