Sound of Hallelujahs

  Melissa is beautiful. And brilliant. Strong and opinionated. She also happens to be black. And I am also strong and opinionated. And I happen to be white. When we first had a conversation at the door to our kids’ Sunday school class, I told her I didn’t think...

Network Update

  I am in a unique position in our church: I get to have one foot in the world of our week-to-week life as we gather together for worship on Sundays; then, I often get to place the other foot in contexts like The Salt Company Spring Conference, which took place...

Master the Restart

  I am a starter.  I am not a finisher. I start a lot of books that I never finish.  I start a lot of projects that I never complete.  I start a lot of to-do lists that I never accomplish.  And, when I come to the realization that I’ve once again started...

An Uncompassionate Christ

Resource Center Books

  For someone who doesn’t enjoy or take time for reading, I found it quite humorous that I was the one asked to write a blog about the Resource Center at Veritas. Like many things, I know that picking up a book to read would be helpful but I find it hard to carve...

Example of Discipleship

Men are not known for having lots of guy friends where they can have deep conversations about life. It just doesn't come naturally to us. I had reached a point where I was tired of not having a group of guys to talk about things that just didn't seem comfortable or...

The Hunter’s Story

Kevin Hunter was a fortunate man. He’d lived long enough and well enough to check everything off his to-be-attained list: beautiful and accomplished wife, two children who’d grown into adults he was proud of, good friends, beautiful home, successful business, time for hunting and fishing, and financial security.
