So I'm fasting this month. Yep, I'm fasting for the whole month of May. I'm not partaking of depression, oppression, or heaviness. I've decided that I'm taking a break from discouragement for the whole month. Instead, I plan to lead a life of joy and hope. I've been struck (not literally) by Psalm 16:11 "...in your presence if fullness of joy, in your right hand there are pleasures forever." That's what I want. I'm fasting from negativity; I'm refusin...Read Full Post »

As you probably noticed, this website hasn't had much attention for quite some time. The changes you see are long overdue. I hope you find the changes refreshing, or at least, different. I hope to begin posting some of my profounder thoughts (well, I think they're profound) in this space in the future. Hopefully, they will inspire and encourage you. Be blessed!

Recently I was given an assignment to write 1 Corinthians 13 in my own words. I thought you might be interested in my take on it. This should be taken as my thoughts or commentary on the chapter, not a definitive translation or paraphrase.

Several months ago, we asked the Leadership Team for a sabbatical. The reasons are these:

Brokenness vs. Woundedness
Has God repeatedly tried to get your attention about something that he wants to teach you? In the last three weeks I have been repeatedly challenged to face the value God places on brokenness. Here are the ways he has spoken to me about it: through Watchman Nee’s book The Release of the Spirit, through a seminar in Thunder Bay on Spiritual Fatherhood, through God speaking to me in a picture, through a conversation with a friend, and through Pr...Read Full Post »

As you may have noticed, I haven't been posting every Wednesday. I have unintentionally let my weekly schedule slide. I've decided that I will post as I am able, but I won't be posting every Wednesday. When I started blogging, I wanted to do it weekly to keep me producing. But I'm finding I can't keep up, especially if I travel (as I did last week) or if I get sick (as I did three weeks ago). I am working on a post right now about brokenness. I hope to have it up...Read Full Post »

I love reading. I come from a long line of readers. My grandfather on my father’s side read all the time, as do many of my aunts and uncles and cousins. My dad’s brother said once that he reads 150 books a year, and my father probably reads almost that many. All of my three siblings have a solid book collection, and wish for more bookshelf space.
At our house, we have books in every room, including the bathr...Read Full Post »

Can Red Lake change? Should Red Lake change? How? Who should decide? What should drive change, and what methods should we use?
I have heard all of the following complaints about Red Lake:

Following a surgery on my knee, I had a patch of skin which had no feeling. I could run my finger over the exact line where the sensation stopped. The nerve that supplied that area of skin had been cut during the operation. 16 years later, the nerve has healed, and I have normal sensation. But at the time it was the strangest thing. Have you ever had that kind of feeling in your ...Read Full Post »

Hey everyone: I'm skipping the post this week. I'm working on a draft, but I don't think it will make it out today. So I'm giving myself the freedom to take a week off. Thanks!
