God creates something from nothing

From Nothing to Something

Close your eyes… No seriously, participate in this little action with me. You can’t close your eyes (and still read this) but imagine nothing. Okay, I know that’s hard, but as best you can imagine empty space, no creation, vast blankness. Now to this empty space, add a light (someplace, somewhere, somehow). Now add a […]

Cows. Cows. Everywhere are cows!

A Long Haul This summer, I spent 10 hours driving from Denver to Kansas City. As a kid, I made this same drive, and it seemed like an eternity locked in a steel box. Somehow, it’s not nearly so horrible at 43, but it’s still not fun. There isn’t a lot to do, and there […]

Does God Matter? by andy bondurant

Why does God matter?

Does marriage even matter? Yesterday, I jumped into my “work” truck to run an errand. It was tuned to a talk radio station I don’t normally listen to. I entered in the middle of two young women’s discussion about marriage. Both, as far as I could tell, were in serious relationships, but not married. Definitely one, and […]

I know you are a leader by Andy Bondurant so lead well

This affected me in several ways, but most noticeable was the water flow coming across our land […]

Everybody Hates Andy Bondurant

I Hate Christian Laettner. Saturday night I watched the ESPN 30 for 30 documentary, “I Hate Christian Laettner.” I was fascinated by the sub-culture surrounding one person, and specifically the hate directed at him. For those unaware, Christian Laettner was a superstar college basketball player at Duke University in the late 80’s and early 90’s. […]

God's grace is new every morning by Andy Bondurant in Shawnee, Kansas

New every morning

Save me so I can praise you publicly at Jerusalem’s gates, so I can rejoice that you have rescued me.  -Psalm 9:14 January 2011 On January 18, 2011 I read the above scripture verse from Psalms. I don’t remember reading it at all, but I know I did because I wrote this note/prayer: Lord lead me […]

Be still and reflect on Christmas by Andy Bondurant

Be still.

All is calm… My favorite Christmas carol is Silent Night. The first 2 lines read: Silent night, Holy night All is calm, all is bright All is calm…what a picture! I don’t know about you, but during the Christmas season there aren’t many calm moments. It’s part of the power of the hymn – an […]
