Monday Morning Confessional

I confess that I messed up daylight savings time yesterday. This isn’t the first time for me. This twice-yearly one hour shift always has just a little bit more at stake when you are in ministry, because Sunday is a work day. I don’t remember ever having a problem with it until about four years [Read More...]

Monday Morning Confessional

I confess that my mom and dad have now been married for 50 years. I can’t begin to express what a gift it is to be raised by parents who know what it means to love. What I learned from mom and dad, among many other things, was that love equals fidelity over time. I [Read More...]

I confess that I have received a newly edited version of Shrink. We’re at the point in the editing process where everything switches to paper. So, this is my first go-round at edits w/a red pen in hand. I have less than a month to get it done. I confess that the manuscript is currently sitting on [Read More...]

Monday Morning Confessional

I confess that I’m sitting here watching The Price is Right with my kids… this show is timeless. It’s the perfect game show. A young mom about our age just won the showcase & her girl friends (they look like they’re on a trip together), stormed the stage & they went nuts. It’s funny… I [Read More...]

Monday Morning Confessional

I confess that I worked most of the day on Saturday this week. It was just one of those weeks when sermon writing took more time. I confess that because of this, Monday Sabbath feels like it has some urgency, so this might be a lousy MMC. I confess that yesterday was the final day [Read More...]

Monday Morning Confessional

I confess that today is the first day of the Spring Semester at NTS, and for the first time I will be teaching a class. The name of the course is Missional Leadership and Discipleship, and I’m co-teaching with Mike King. As part of the new module schedule, we will be going 8-5:00 for most of [Read More...]

Monday Morning Confessional

I confess that it is insanely cold outside, -8 degrees at my house last night, and yet still I love winter. When I start to think it’s too cold, I just imagine how cranky I would be if it was 110 degrees outside today (the summer equivalent to our current cold snap). Then I remember [Read More...]

Monday Morning Confessional

I confess that I’ve been a bad blogger this past week – I didn’t even post a Friday Funny – pretty lame. I’ll do better this week. I confess I read something about a reality TV guy on some sort of duck hunting show who said some insensitive things a few weeks back. Has anybody [Read More...]

Monday Morning Confessional

I confess that I am nearly done with Christmas shopping. I need to make three more stops and then I’m done. I confess that my job with regard to shopping for my two sons has always been the Dollar Store. The strategy behind this was drawn from the fact that the first four Christmases of [Read More...]

Monday Morning Confessional

I confess that its December 16th, and our Christmas tree isn’t decorated yet. It’s up, and the rest of our decorations are in place. I even put lights up outside for the first time in recent memory. But the tree still stands there naked as a jaybird. We are hoping to get to it tomorrow. [Read More...]
