    With the weather in the mid-50’s and the sky misty this morning, there was a good rainfall coming down and clouds covered the sky when the sun rose. I thought, “So this is what it’s like to train in Seattle.” It felt great to run in the rain. A raspberry mocha hit the spot...

    The Many Miles of Summer

    by  •  • 0 Comments

    I’ll admit it.  In many ways, this has been a great summer in my life. After years of apartment living, I somehow found myself in a home this summer, with interest rates at an all-time low and with buyers free to pick up bargains. I’ve been consistent this summer running, keeping up (mostly) with...

    Impetus

    by  •  • 0 Comments

    I am amazed at the grace of God.  In the random moments when I can shake myself loose from my preoccupations, preconceptions, and prejudices, and my self falls by the side, He is there.    I know this because I can look around in this world, and while planes crash and people contract cancer...

    For the last two months, I have been going through a book study with a friend.  We decided to dive into the study because we had a talk one evening and both realized that we didn’t feel our faith was making an impact in our lives.  I had been given a copy of Dan...

    It’s been over three months since my last post, and like that, I am reminded how quickly time flies.  There is no slowing it down.  Oddly enough, I am aware of this every day (that time is passing), but I fail to make the moments of each day count, and then occasionally I wake...

    “Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did. Could this be the Messiah?” ~John 4:29 When Jesus meets the woman at the well in Sychar, he shares with her about the water he has to give which springs eternal.  She is perplexed by this foreigner.  A Jew, he shouldn’t be friendly...

    The Six Spheres: Introduction

    by  •  • 0 Comments

    For some time I have juggled in my head the question of what it takes to be an effective person at self-management.  Self-management should enable a person to grow up and become, without tragic interdiction, a whole and contributing person in this world.  Self-management is not only a practice of self-monitoring, but it is...

    7 Minutes: Seeing the Kingdom

    by  •  • 0 Comments

    In reply, Jesus declared, “I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.” Yes, the term “born again” is popularly used to describe evangelicals who emerged out of the 60’s and 70’s as those who pressed for the necessity of a rebirth experience as part...

    “Destroy this temple, and I will raise it again in three days.” John 2:19 When Jesus visits the Temple courts and sees men selling items and animals for use in sacrifices and offerings, he is incensed and drives everyone out of the courts.  When the town constables come and ask him by what authority...
