To the Called Out Ones of Jesus Christ, What are you willing to pay? To the Called Out Ones of Jesus Christ (and for all those looking for something of true value), There was a man once whose neighbors, friends, and family thought he was crazy.  He came home one day and began doing strange and uncommon things.

Freedom – December 30

To the Called Out Ones of Jesus Christ, To the Called Out Ones of Jesus Christ (and to all those who want to live for something more), I’m not sure why, but as we approach the new year my mind and spirit go to the subject of freedom. I guess I’m wondering what will be different about 2018. Will we all just go along with what has been – being adrift on the river of life and going with the flow? I’m especially wondering...

Who’s Your Boss – Dec 15

To the Called Out Ones of Jesus Christ, To the Called Out Ones of Jesus Christ (and to all those seeking a higher path),  Because most of us have grown up in America and have not traveled too broadly, we do not value or appreciate just how unique it is in the global and historical context.  America was founded on biblical values and laws and we cannot overstate just how much this has affected our culture – the common daily life and...

Stewardship and Thanksgiving (Blessed to be a Blessing – Part 2) Dec 1

To the Called Out Ones of Jesus Christ, To the Called Out Ones of Jesus Christ (and to all those seeking to live with greater purpose),  As I have continued to think about Thanksgiving after our holiday weekend, I was struck by the contrast between the original Thanksgiving story and how we live today as Americans.
