Weddings & Gas Chambers Auschwitz might seem like a strange place to visit on a honeymoon trip, but that is exactly where the honeymoon journey my wife and I took through Eastern Europe brought us. We went from a wedding party to a gas chamber in about a week. Midway through our tour we stayed in Krakow, Poland for a couple days. From there, a day trip to Auschwitz was an optional excursion tourists could pay extra m...

I used to write off guys I would hear talking about the need to develop Vision, Mission and Core Values for churches as corporate, market-driven sellouts. I had all kinds of snarky comments to make about how they needed to put down their copy of Entrepreneur Magazine and pick up their Bible. The “How” Question And then something crazy happened- I actually got into vocational ministry! When I became a senior pastor at...

Helen Keller said, “The only thing worse than having no sight, is having sight, but no vision.” So what is vision? Biblical vision is seeing what God wants you to see.

The Aftermath of ...
On January 7, 2015, in Paris, France, two brothers, Cherif and Said Kouachi, forced their way into the head offices of the satirical newspaper “Charlie Hebdo” murdering twelve people in a few minutes. They calmly retreated to their car crying they would avenge the ‘prophet,’ firing on anyone who had the misfortune of being in their way. And then they tore through the streets of Paris in a dramatic getaway. The police...
I was able to meet with President Obama! The kids and I were in a small office with him and he was gracious with his time, meeting for over 10 minutes. I told him that I had refrained from food for 3 days, praying and fasting, and that God had ordained this meeting. He shook his head and smiled. I told him that the kids and I prayed for him and loved him (that as Christians this is what we are to do). He said he need...
