It's always darkest before dawn.

Waiting for morning.

What a difference one page makes.  The books of Genesis and Exodus are back to back in the Bible. Though they are right next to each other, the end of Genesis could be no different than the beginning of Exodus. Genesis ends with the story of Joseph moving his entire family to Egypt after he […]

The danger of small stories.

Glory. We all are called to live incredible, great, beautiful stories. We want to live stories where we are seen as beautiful or heroic. We want to live stories where we do things of great meaning and value. We want to live stories where we change not just our lives, but the lives of many. […]

Wonder Twin Powers Activate!

Saturday Mornings If you are of a certain age, Saturday morning has a whole different meaning than it does now.

Open Space [Revisited]

Joshua Tree While on my trip to California, Kia and I drove through Joshua Tree National Park. The park is considered the high desert, basically desert surrounded by mountains. At one point early in the trip through the park, I stopped to take a picture. Kia suggested taking a panoramic view of the desert. This […]

Let’s do this thing!

The Tower Heist During my recent trip out of town, I watched the movie Tower Heist. If you haven’t seen it, it’s a comedy about a group of misfits who come together in Robin Hood fashion to take from a Wall Street mogul and distribute to those who were cheated out of their life savings. […]
