Pursuing a life of passion, purpose, and principle

Transforming lives. Transforming the world.

Chicago Trip 11.22.08

I just arrived to Chicago late night. Wow… it was probably the fastest plane ride to Chicago in all my years of flying. The pilot got us to Chicago in 40 minutes!! It is usually a 53 minute ride. I knew something was different because when we approached Chicago, the pilot had to slow down […]

A Day in the Life of Karissa

Today, Karissa and I headed out to her school at 6:30PM. It was a special day. All the kids in her class invited one of their parents to come and experience what a day in school is like for them. I decided to go and make it a daddy/daughter thing. Karissa’s excitement was contagious. Even […]

“24” is Back (Finally)

After a one year hiatus, the T.V. show 24 will be premiering a 2-hour special movie this coming Sunday, November 23rd. It is called, “24: Redemption.” This will try to explain what happens between seasons 6 and 7. I think many people were disappointed with the last season. The first 3 or 4 seasons were […]

Daisy Girl Scouts

Karissa went to her first Daisy Girl Scouts today. You should have seen her face when she came back. She was so pumped for a 5 year old! Karissa ended up showing me her whole 7 month schedule (page by page). She also showed me her pledge or commitment card that she had to recite. […]

The Bigger Man

  Photo: Reuters       Now that the elections are over, the president-elect Barack Obama is in the process of forming his cabinet. This has been in the news for the last couple of weeks. But the thing that has caught my attention and impressed me about Obama is that in the last few […]

Seven Days of Sex

I have always been challenged and inspired by Pastor Ed Young from Fellowship Church when it comes to creativity and doing things with excellence. He has done it again. Fellowship Church is starting a new series called, “Seven Days of Sex.” Provocative? Yes. It even made the ABC News reporter blush a little bit. You […]

Northwestern vs. Michigan 2008

        This is a big game. Michigan is trying to salvage whatever they can from this losing season and Northwestern is trying to get into a bowl game. To the average Michigan and Northwestern football fan, it is all about identification with their team and bragging rights. So what do we do […]

Faith is Always Required

I was ministered by the Holy Spirit with a quote that I read today. It is by George MacDonald (1824-1905) in his book, “Weighed and Wanting.” MacDonald said, “The principal part of faith is patience.” One major weakness that I have is impatience. Since I am an ENTJ, according to the Myers-Briggs personality test (you […]

Veteran’s Day 2008

        Today is Veteran’s Day and a time to remember many of the men and women who have served in the armed forces. It is also a time to remember some of the people who are serving right now in Iraq and Afghanistan. With some of our members serving in the military […]

The Delusion of Multi-Tasking?

I like to call myself a multi-tasker. Usually on my computer I have at least 7 or 8 programs opened at the same time and many other files working simultaneously. I would also like to believe that I get more done when I multi-task. I think it is the feeling of doing many things at […]

Re: turn Sermon Series

        We are going to start a whole new series called, “Re: turn.” Usually the pastoral staff and I try to come up with the whole year’s preaching schedule, one semester at a time. We already had a series that we wanted to do in the month of November, but just recently […]

High School Musical 3

        Tonight the family and I went to see High School Musical 3. One of the LIFE groups was gracious enough to pay for the movie tickets. I think Karissa was more excited about this than the boys. Overall it was a decent movie with some good themes – learning to make […]

Leadership Network Update

Yesterday was a full day. We went through some back-to-back sessions. But it was great to sit down some of the guys in ministry and talk about topics that applied to where we were at the present moment in ministry. I realized that getting into smaller group and just picking each other’s brains is helping […]

History Is Made

  Photo: Reuters       Tonight as we were eating dinner, some of the people who had iPhones were checking the election updates. By the time we were having dessert it was pretty clear that Obama won the election. When I got back to the hotel room, I was watching the concession speech by […]
