Principles vs. Practices

One of the most glaring divides in the life of many churches is the divide between principles and practices. A principle is an understanding about how to do things; a fundamental truth about the way things ought to be. A practice, of course, is what you actually do – and ideally, as a result of a guiding principle.

Does God Look Good On You?

God should look good on us to others. God looked good on Jesus. I’ve always marveled at how Jesus could proclaim absolute truth without compromise to those far from God, and then have those very people invite him to their parties.

Would Martin Luther King Jr. be Heard Today?

New Year’s Resolutions for You and Your Church (2015)

What would a set of New Year’s resolutions look like for you and your church, your role as a leader, or simply as someone who wants to live a life of strategic Kingdom investment? And specifically, what if they came from the Bible?

The Year (2014) in Review

This is the time to recap the year that was. There are a number of ways to do it, all of which are interesting. But how do you really get a twelve-month snapshot of a culture's zeitgeist?

Best Toys Ever (2014)
