Making Memories on Vacation

When our teenage children were young my wife Kristen felt convicted about giving our kids lots of stuff for Christmas. To her, toys simply weren’t the point of Christmas.

Christmas is about Jesus, right? So if we make a big deal out of loading up the tree with toys it stops being about Jesus and starts being about toys.

Taking a Risk This Weekend

wcsd-logoAt Open we ask speakers to come on their own dime, present something fresh, and step out in faith– to take a risk for the sake of the community. The premise of Open is that the best ideas about ministering to adolescents are already out in the field being tried… and amazing things will happen when we share them with others in our field.

This weekend I’m taking a similar risk by presenting a not-so-normal topic at WordCamp San Diego. (Open is modeled after WordCamp)

I’m excited to speak into this community of collaborators and innovators. In my work at McLane Creative I take a lot so it is fun to give something back.
