What would you do differently if you were told that today is a day of discovery and you should seek out those fascinating things about life that you don’t yet know? So here it is! Today is a day of discovery! Seek out. Be intrigued. Find answers. Hover over things. Ponder. Enlighten yourself and others. […]


Because of all the traveling I do, I’ve been thinking about separation a lot lately. I experience separation in various ways: from my wife and family when I travel from those I work with when I stay home or travel away from them from our Creator when I focus on the things of this earth […]

Like Jonah

Most of us know the story of Jonah and the whale.  When God asked Jonah to go to Nineveh to deliver God’s message that they must repent, Jonah rebelled and ran.  He jumped on a ship to head a different direction, and a storm came up that put the ship in danger.  The ship determined […]


Faith and doubt are opposite ends of the same spectrum, both responses to things unseen.

I’m doing that now…sitting by the fireplace in the hotel…trying to warm up…thinking back through the incredible events of this past week…wondering if the […]
