Mark Stevens has strangely left Facebook, then went on “holiday” for awhile, but the timing is interesting. He left before a very significant world event took place and has not been heard from since. If you have seen this man, you may need to contact the FBI… or Interpol. He was last seen on NearContinue reading “Have You Seen This Man?”
This tribute to David Wilkerson is posted. Apparently it was played at his funeral.
This past Sunday was a great day of giving. In the morning before church we hit the annual Kiwanis pancake breakfast. The club that runs the breakfast raises several thousand dollars for projects for kids. It’s always a great opportunity for giving… and I get to eat! In the afternoon after church I went overContinue reading “Generosity”
It’s difficult for me to write with humor. It’s probably the way I write and I just haven’t learned the art of writing humorously yet. So, I state this up front: Today is just FUN. I’m not going to talk theology or church ministry. I will give opposites in media today. The idea of myContinue reading “The Great “I LIKE” Campaign, Part 3″

For better or worse, this man stood as a watchman on the wall of our nation and prophetically pastored a church in Manhattan that is doing an amazing work today. His words have angered me, challenged me, and brought me to my knees. The ChurchContinue reading “Mourning the Loss of a Prophet”
Yesterday was a particularly hectic day. I am president of a local community organization and we had our noon meeting. When I was leaving, I ran into some great friends who live in the city and we talked about life, the schools, great things that are going on… it was a lot of fun. Inadvertently,Continue reading “The Kindness of Strangers”
It is unbelievable how this week has unfolded. The news keeps coming and it’s so heart-wrenching. A friend struggling with a wife’s mental illness. The loss of a great woman of God (my wife’s grandmother). The news of cancer striking at a friend, and they have kids all under the age of 12. The newsContinue reading “Gut Punch”
I begin writing this during my sabbatical in August 2010. I will leave it in draft mode until I return to officially blogging in September, and it may never reach the light of day, but I wanted to think about some things I hope people remember about me. This has come on because I haveContinue reading “Things I Want People to Know About Me”
THIS is injustice. We are too silent on behalf of people who have been pawns for generations.
