Euthanasia: The Move from Terminal Illness to a Hard Life

The Netherlands, a leader in legalized euthanasia, has seen a sharp increase in the number of people choosing to end their own lives due to mental health problems. In 2010, just two people ended their lives due to an “insufferable” mental illness. In 2015? It leaped to 56.

The 5 Most Important Questions...You Will Ever Ask about Your Organization

Mention the name Peter Drucker in management circles, and a hushed silence will fall as your peers wait to see if you might have even a nugget of his wisdom that has not already been disseminated for consumption. He once offered five questions for organizational strategic self-assessment. And shockingly, few churches have ever asked them, much less wrestled with their answers.

Losing the Transgender Debate... For All the Right Reasons

There is a growing, worrisome sentiment within some Christian ranks that the worst thing that could possibly happen would be to lose minds in a court of public opinion. So, the thinking goes, we should drop that issue. Capitulate. Give in to culture. Don’t fight it – because if you do, you’ll lose. And losing is everything. No. It is not.

My Two Biggest Vision Lessons

It talked about playing fair, putting things back where you found them... flushing. Reflecting on that title, it made me think of my own leadership and role as a pastor. And how I could write a book titled: "All I Really Need to Know I Learned in My First Church."

Moving Through Sin

We all sin. Real, honest, hard-core moral rebellion. From addictions to pornography; from an uncontrolled temper, a critical spirit and uncontrolled tongue to greed and ambition; from cut-loose pride to adulterous thoughts and even actions. We are sinners. Present tense. Today. Multiple times.

Divorce and Domestic Violence

A survey by the CDC (Center for Disease Control) found that 1 out of every 4 women surveyed said they were violently attacked by their husbands or boyfriends. Where is the church when it comes to the physical abuse of women? Where are its leaders?

Why You May Not be Growing As a Church (2016)

It’s one of the most pressing questions pastors and church leaders ask themselves: “Why aren’t we growing?” Churches are living things. Living things grow. If you’re not growing – even if just in compensation to what you’ve lost through transition – something is wrong.

The Slippery Slope to Incest

The idea of a “slippery slope” is important to understand. It refers to a step down a particular path that, whether intentioned or not, could lead to slipping down and falling much further than you could ever imagine.
