Stronger Closer Together

Attending a seeker church as I do, the constant question is “Don’t we need to go deeper?” “Are we ‘fast food church,’ looking to make following Jesus quick-serve . . .  high calorie, low cost, low value?” “Are people going to become deeply rooted in Jesus through our church?” So, recently I turned to Scripture…

Tackle the Tangles

My post last week, “What’s Unpacked Sometimes Unravels,” was the most unnatural thing I’ve ever written. I know it was wise, but so unlike me. I struggle to leave anything alone; I’m the world’s worst at leaving things unpacked. I want to set it straight and get it over with, so I can move on…

Great Insults . . .

My friend Rod sent this the other day. It harkens back to the days when insults required more thought than ‘4 letter words’ or references to the other guy’s mother. Enjoy these but don’t use them. We’re trying to help you be better, not worse . . . A member of Parliament to Prime Minister…

The Downside of Intentionality

People tell me I’m one of the most intentional people they know. I’ve given away a hundred copies of a book with a light switch on the cover asking, “Is what you’re about to do ON or OFF purpose?” I own the URL intentionality.org. I’m serious about being on purpose and intentional. But years ago,…

The Elephant Herd

When we were invited to a mentoring event at Dunwoody United Methodist Church recently, an elephant herd stole the show! Under the leadership of Pat Morgan, a lay leader at DUMC, their 7 male mentors have now mentored 115 men with more groups underway. But their women’s Titus2 program has also been thriving. In fact,…

Will You Become an Includer?

A friend of ours was talking about Thanksgiving dinner at her house growing up. “There was always someone there we didn’t know,” she said. “Mom would always call up someone she thought would be alone that day and include them at our family table.” Her story made me think of the school cafeteria and the…

We are Complete

My church just had its annual Man Night. Quite a production with campfires, bacon snacks, brownies and milk, film clips . . . you know, real guy stuff. At the end of the main talk, 6 truths about identity were put up on the screen along with this question, “Which of these do you struggle…

Exposed

Today’s post comes from Radical Mentoring’s Executive Director Kevin Harris . . . Webster’s dictionary defines exposed as “made visible by uncovering it” or “left in an unprotected or vulnerable state.” The Greek translation of the root word elegxo means “to convince with solid compelling evidence.” No matter how you choose to look at the…

In the Midst of Your Circumstances

Sometimes I say stuff and think “Hmm, that sounded pretty good! I wonder if I made that up?” Usually I find it was from Andy Stanley or one of the many other people smarter than me. But just to make sure, I’ll google it to see if I can find the author. If it doesn’t…
