2014 August: A Night at the Ball

2014 August: A Night at the Ball
It's tuxes and gowns. It's elegant music and hors d'oeuvres. It's family and friends lingering in the moment of arrival...anticipating... Have you had your evening at the ball?

Goodness: Choosing God and the Good

Goodness: Choosing God and the Good
My choices will bring to life in me a thriving, blossoming, well-nourished tree, or they'll take me down the road to arrogance, shame, isolation and dysfunction.

Bringing Spiritual Disciplines to Campus...or Finding Them There

The campus is a great place to carve out the devotion habit. Yes, the pressure is on with classes, but this is preparation for life commitments. Consequences in college are called grades. Consequences in life are called rewards and punishment.

Looking Into the Eyes of a Parent

Looking Into the Eyes of a Parent
There's nothing like looking into the eyes of a parent as you talk about your children finding their paths. It's hard to describe how deeply we want our children to do well and provide for themselves. Is it about getting them off of our financial support? Well, yeah, there's some of that. But far greater is our desire to see them thrive on their own.

2014 July: In the Mud, On the Track, In the Race

2014 July: In the Mud, On the Track, In the Race
Being on the track, in the mud, sometimes just means doing that thing you know you're supposed to do. Stop questioning. Stop philosophizing. Stop looking around. Set your face forward in the flying muck...and run!

Les Miserables: Looking Into the Eyes of Misery

Les Miserables: Looking Into the Eyes of Misery
I submit to you today that looking into the eyes of misery is one way to bridge the gap of income inequality. As each of the millions of us choose to bridge the income gap with compassion instead of barricading it with arrogance, we will be closer to heaven.

Care to Make an Impact in Asia?

Johnny and Kay are missionaries to Asia. These aren't their real names and I can only publish pictures of their surroundings. We had an amazing two-hour Facetime chat recently. Their love of God and people is off the charts. Care to join them on their mission? It would be a tremendous honor to connect you!

2014 June: Growing a Triple-Sized Heart

Do you feel incapable of what God is calling you to do? Feed your heart! If you've stepped into relationship with Jesus, your heart and soul have divine DNA. You've got royal blood! But sons and daughters of heaven with no nourishment will shrivel and fade as surely as sons and daughters of earth.

Is the Corporate World for You?

Is the Corporate World for You?
Walking to the front edge of the stage, I take a peek down at my notes before looking out at the workshop crowd. Three hundred healthcare IT professionals smile back as the presentation theme music rolls out with the classic rock guitar lead from Money for Nothing.

"Good afternoon, my name's Evan..."
