  • Coming to Chicago Dec 13-18

    I’m coming to Chicago for a small release party for the Love is an Orientation DVD curriculum on Saturday December 17th… so  I thought I’d expand the trip a little by coming Tuesday night and leaving Sunday evening.

  • Mexico isn’t Scary

    I spent yesterday with some folks from Amor Ministries in Tijuana. The point of our trip was to visit some recent Amor houses built in a colonia to create a video inviting NYWC participants to spend a day of convention there building a house.

  • The Sea

    ten things i have learned about the sea from lorenzo fonda on Vimeo. I was mesmerized by this short film. Like the filmmaker, there is something about the ocean that speaks deeply to my soul.

  • Back to Minneapolis

    This week I’m headed to Minneapolis for a week of meetings and team building. Since YS is a now part of YouthWorks, we get to be a part of their semi-annual gatherings where they come together to celebrate all that God is doing. I’m digging that. Here’s a couple of fun things I’ve been learning […]

  • Off to Minneapolis

    If going to Alabama is the dirty south, does that make Minnesota the “clean north?” Regardless, I am missing church this morning as I begin my trip north (and east) to Minneapolis for a few days of meetings with the YouthWorks team. Here’s something fun about heading to the clean north. I kind of like […]

  • Can Yelp Save the Mom and Pop Shop?

    Recent reviews by Adam M. What's this? I love mom and pop shops. I can’t quite put my finger for when this affinity began, but I prefer an owner operated business over a chain any day of the week. We all know that corporate America has slowly destroyed these small businesses. One by one, we […]
