What's your favourite meal or drink? I mean the real deal, original, nothing quite like it, warms your heart, meal or drink. As you read this blog, I want you to picture it, taste it! My favourite coffee in the world is an Aussie "flat white", from either Axil Coffee in Richmond, Australia, or "The … Continue reading Time To Turn On the Light.
Are you a Slave to Offense?
Are you a slave to offense? I have seen so many people hijack their lives, their ministries, their friends and their potential through offense. Someone ripped them off. They felt harshly dealt with by a boss. A colleague got greater attention than they. Their parents never paid them enough attention. God didn’t answer their prayer … Continue reading Are you a Slave to Offense?
Thanks Andrew… But I’m Not an Evangelist
"Do you know Jesus?" I ask this question to almost every person I meet these days. From the lady who identifies as same-sex attracted at the drive-through window, to the balding millionaire loading up his car outside a high end shopping mall. Just two days ago I spent over an hour with a dear Muslim … Continue reading Thanks Andrew… But I’m Not an Evangelist
Please Don’t Send Yourself to Hell
“Are you walking with Jesus?” I asked the gentleman sitting behind me. “I used to”, he replied, with a look of shame and struggle in his eyes. “I’ll walk with you if you want me to”, I offered. “You have to make the choice. It’s your choice and it’s up to you,” I affirmed. Michael … Continue reading Please Don’t Send Yourself to Hell
Better Together- Why I Need You to Be All That I Can Be (And Why You Need Others Too).
“Mind if I join you?”, I asked, as I spotted a fellow “BootCamper” (read about the Evangelism BootCamp I’m doing HERE) “Go ahead”, he said in his strong British accent. As we began to jog I found myself quickly realizing that I may be in way over my head! “I’m training for a 6 minute … Continue reading Better Together- Why I Need You to Be All That I Can Be (And Why You Need Others Too).
The Arrow Has Left The Bow- When You Pass the Point of No Return.
Have you ever thrown something and wished you hadn't? Have you ever had something thrown at you and wish it hadn't been? I'll never forget my friend Dan throwing a frozen cup of ice at me in retaliation for me putting it down his back. It was all fun and games until that ice left … Continue reading The Arrow Has Left The Bow- When You Pass the Point of No Return.
It’s Okay to Not be Okay (But it’s not Okay to Stay that Way).
15 years ago my life was a mess. Getting drunk most nights, I was sleeping in until midday most days. I was an unreliable worker, a messy housemate, and a lousy friend. I couldn't maintain a job and the workload of my university course and I soon dropped out of university. Addicted to pornography, I … Continue reading It’s Okay to Not be Okay (But it’s not Okay to Stay that Way).
Help I’m in Ministry and I’m Empty!
I'll never forget driving to the Grand Canyon with my mother and father in the car, my 2 year old son and my pregnant wife. We drove along the freeway laughing and telling stories, it was a joyful time indeed. Then, as if out of nowhere, we heard a beep. I looked down and I … Continue reading Help I’m in Ministry and I’m Empty!
Tough Time? Put Your Technology Away.
Have you ever found yourself in this situation? A troubling thought comes along, an anxious moment knocks on your door, and you find yourself almost without thinking, reaching for your device? For years now I have seen this pattern in my own life, in the lives of family and friends, and I've observed it all … Continue reading Tough Time? Put Your Technology Away.
You Can’t Have Your Cake and Eat it Too- Why “Cancel Culture” is Doomed to Fail.
"We don't want rape culture but we do want people to be able to do and be whatever they want to do and be sexually." "We don't want systemic racism, but we do want it taught in every school that human beings evolved and are mere formations of cells vs. precious creations of God." “We … Continue reading You Can’t Have Your Cake and Eat it Too- Why “Cancel Culture” is Doomed to Fail.
