Contagious Courage

I see a church community as a place to experience the contagiousness of courage. Surrounded by fellow hikers on the path, we hear and see people cheering us on while we in turn do the same for others.

Motivation Through the Mundane

Twelve weeks into an 18-week marathon training program, most of my days look the same. Wake up before the sun. Run. Go to work. Rest, rinse, repeat. But the monotony is building endurance for what lies ahead, much like my walk with God.

Gratitude somehow builds up in us during the ordinary and good times of life so as to make us less likely to be defeated when the bottom falls out on us in this or that area of life.

Blessed by the Blessings of Others

I’ll never forget the professor who read Psalm 13 and tied it to his lifelong struggle with depression. The sanctuary was so quiet as he spoke that it seemed like everyone was blessed in glimpsing the blessings he received from this short but powerful Psalm.

Death brings things into perspective. The things you whine about and worry about don’t seem that big when you need a new kidney to live another day. The color of the carpet doesn't matter.

Souvenirs of Faith

We associate souvenirs with traveling, but we also keep them to remind us of faith milestones. A family baptism gown, a signed Bible — these things help us remember moments that shape our identity as people of God.

So, What Do YOU Do?

“Pastor” is a word that I like. I have good associations with it and sometimes it’s helpful to use because it opens the door. But sometimes I have to let it go and find more creative ways to communicate what I do.
