Deja Vu

My heart was beating as I stood next to the kitchen counter, listening to the silence of intrigue as my friends told their six word life stories one by one for the first time, and were met with cheers of affirmation. It was almost my turn to go.

We had thirty seconds to share our six word stories. And finally, it was my time to share.

I shared how thankful I was for each of their team members pouring into me. And then, with about 12 seconds left, I shared my story. Read more

Who’s Leading Who?

It was your typical Sunday worship service. I invited the congregation to gather for worship. There was some sort of theme that went along with the message. We had a variety of old and new songs, with a balance of celebration and confession. But to be quite honest with you, I don’t even remember any of the particulars. I don’t remember the theme at all. I couldn’t tell you what the songs were if my life depended on it. I don’t remember what colors the lights were, or anything about the stage design. Yet, it was one of the most powerful corporate worship experiences of my life. Read more
