Parking lot

What if your ultimate boss surprised you at work? The other night we happened upon the popular series, Undercover Boss. We watched a couple of episodes, and there’s one I can’t get out of my mind. Read more »

Who's in your dinghy?

I really felt alone, but I wish that I’d never said what I said! Many years ago in a place, far, far away, I was under enormous stress. During a meeting with the church elders they sincerely commiserated with me over the multiple crises we were facing. Finally, one said: “Alan, we’re in this thing together.” Read more »


I don’t want to bug busy people, but “bird-dogging” them is a different story. A pastor buddy just sent an email saying:“Thanks for ‘bird dogging’ me! (That means, ‘pointing me in the right direction!’).” I really appreciated his fresh insight and timely encouragement. Read more »

Overturned 100 year old tree

A huge tree just fell on our house (well, almost!) Shortly after midnight last Thursday a 100-year old cottonwood landed two inches from our bedroom window. It was a jolting experience that instantly got our attention. Everyone that came to see what happened was amazed that our house escaped serious damage and that the old tree didn’t end up in our bed!

Colorful front yard

One neighbor is the envy of all! Why? He has lush and colorful landscaping that’s impossible not to notice. How does this guy inspire the rest of us? He paid, and is paying, the price. Read more »

Leap of faith

“I’m having the time of my life!” That’s what a buddy just reported yesterday. No, he didn’t win the lottery or enjoy an all-expenses-paid cruise to some exotic isle. So, what was it that prompted such exuberance? Read more »

Beautiful open church

“Why is your vision so small?” When I raised that simple question to my friend, it changed his life. He was seeking help for a noble project; but after listening to him, I suspected God wanted to do far more through him. Read more »

Dinner out

I love to eat food I like, especially with people I like! That was our privilege again last evening when we connected with another couple committed to helping ministry leaders. A mutual friend suggested that Jim and Debbie reach out to us when they were in town and we’re glad they did. This delightful California couple launched a mentoring ministry 14 years ago that is now expanding rapidly. Read more »

Take Action!

I caught myself grumbling the other day.That’s not exactly unusual except that my grumbles prompted me to take action. After I finished lamenting that a project just wasn’t coming together the way I had hoped, I realized I had a choice. Instead of giving up, I got fired up and refocused. Read more »

Large Beech tree

Sometimes we don’t get what we expect; sometimes we get far more! I just returned from Indonesia where a missionary shared an intriguing story. She planted a simple marigold that grew so well that it had to be staked. In time the beautiful flower shriveled and died, as all flowers sooner or later do. But to her surprise something else took its place. Read more »

Each day we would have sessions with Dr. Walker, time to reflect, homework (a lot of reading), and amazing dinners each night. . . I grew so much in my personal faith journey during this week." Missionary, Dominican Republic
