A Christmas Meditation

Just thought I would take a minute and wish you all an amazing time of remembrance and understanding of what it means to have God with us both here on the planet and in our hearts and lives. We were at a Christmas performance this evening and heard a very nice rendition of “Mary, Did You […]

The Passing Game Speaks to Life

Though not a football offensive genius like Mike Martz, I have enjoyed watching and playing football enough to know that when one throws the football the outcome has three possible options, two of them not good: Interception – terrible; the “enemy” gets the ball and you go on the defensive, lose what you have gained […]

Four Questions Used Again

The Acres, USA conference was over and my friend with whom I attended asked the summary question: “So, after three days of hearing all this good stuff, do you know what you want to do?” Hmmm.  I wonder…… Well, actually I have some ideas but it has been really difficult to get it all together and get it going and head toward fulfilling my purpose for being on the planet.

To this day, the willingness of a Wall Street investment bank to pay me […]

Here is a suggestion. LISTEN. Listen? To what? Remember – this is all about Restoring the lifestyle modeled in the […]

Living in Two Worlds, Part II – Beyond Theories

We discussed in Part I living in Spirit vs. living in Body and that while the First Adam’s choice locked us into living in Body (Physical), the choice of the Second Adam reopened the possibility of living in Spirit. The question now arises – what does either look like? Living in Body is pretty familiar to all of us.  Get a job, trade time for […]
