What To Do With A Marriage After An Affair

I wish it never happened to anyone and I hope it never happens to you, but in my job I hear it almost every week. It’s a word we are afraid of, one that can destroy, and certainly one that will break a heart. Sometimes people admit to it, but mostly they deny it.

The word is AFFAIR. […] Continue Reading…

Twitter Taking Over Social Networking World (Duh!)

I tried to tell people. Next time follow my lead. Just kidding…kind of, but I was saying a year ago to watch out for Twitter and people kept making fun of my new hobby. Now we have Oprah, Ashton, and Andy Stanley on Twitter. Apparently it’s catching on fast in the world of sports too. Check this Tennessean story out! […] Continue Reading…

Grace Teaches…and So Much More

I love interacting with seminary students. As they have their minds stretched, they continue to stretch me attempting to wrestle through doctrine with them. That happened this weekend with a young man who attended our church prior to his call to ministry. We were discussing the concept of grace and I was reminded of a passage that has stretched my thoughts over the years. […] Continue Reading…

Technology in the Next 10 Years

Technology in 10 years is going to rock our worlds. I’m just now getting used to watching the CNN crew do the touch and grab screens and the holographic images that allow two people to appear as if they are on the same stage. Watch what Microsoft has in its research agenda for the years to come. AMAZING. And to think I remember when they introduced calculators and microwaves! […] Continue Reading…

How do you calendar your life?

Apparently people still use these. I thought paper calendars had disappeared. I am a scheduled individual, but I haven’t used one in years. I have used Google calendar, Outlook, iCal, and my Blackberry, but all online. I even had a period where I used a Lotus Spreadsheet, but I never printed it. […] Continue Reading…

Do You Love Your Church?

Years ago I participated in a one-day medical clinic in a slum near Rio, Brazil that remains nameless, because the government has yet to name it. It is literally built on the side of a steep mountain. Simply walking to the clinic was a huge task. My job was to evangelize the crowd waiting to see the doctors. My translator and I had several decisions to accept Christ, but remarkably we also encountered a good number of professing believers. When I told them that the desire was to eventually start a church in the slum, they were ecstatic. One lady began to jump up and down with excitement. They wanted a local church! […] Continue Reading…

How Are You on Facebook so Much? (And What is Twitter?)

The number one most repeated comment I receive each day is: I see you on Facebook all the time. Well, that’s partly true, but not exactly. I’m really rarely on Facebook, except to respond to emails and process friend requests, etc. I don’t look at pictures much and really don’t read a lot of status reports. I update Facebook via Twitter. Twitter is a mini-blog of 140 characters sent from my phone basically as a text message. (I actually use the Twitter application for Blackberry.) I send the Twitter in a brief 10-second thought and it updates my Facebook automatically. […] Continue Reading…
