The Unknown

The Unknown

It’s been a while since I blogged. It’s a bit overwhelming. Everything seems to be right now. I’ve been working on the classic “differences between the two worlds” one, but right now there’s something more to say about this return journey. The other one is coming. There is a lot to say about everything that […]

Three Suitcases

Three Suitcases

Three suitcases. My life fits in three suitcases. And let’s be honest, I probably could get rid of some of that too. So tomorrow is the day that I’ve been avoiding for weeks. Tomorrow is the day I board the plane heading back to the States. Still know it’s the right decision. Still dreading starting […]

Loaded Silence

Loaded Silence

So, yet again, it’s been a while since I last wrote. This time I know exactly why. I’ve been in some serious denial about what’s coming. I starting writing this blog in my head almost two weeks ago. When it was exactly one month from the big D-day… the departure. That’s when it hit. I’m […]

Transitions

Transitions

So I guess this is the official post. In a little less than 3 months time I will be back living in the U.S. of A. And with it comes the most whirlwind of tasks, decisions, and emotions that I have ever felt. I told my dad that it seems moving back is scarier than […]

The Weight of Words

Words. So innocuous but so powerful. How often do you weigh yours? Ministry alters the weight of them. Leadership alters the weight of them. Relationship alters the weight of them. Words can make someone’s day, week, or life when spoken just right. But the opposite is true as well. Let me be a little honest […]

Arrivals

So part of my current job takes me to the airport quite often. I’ve almost got the timing down so I don’t have to pay a small fortune for parking. Even so, there are some excellent opportunities to people watch. The international gate is alway fun. My favorite game is spot the American. It’s very […]

The Journey or the Destination

The Journey or the Destination

I always say life is about the journey, not the destination, but sometimes the destination is pretty cool. This past weekend consisted of a road trip to Cape Agulhas, the REAL southernmost point on the African continent and where the the Indian and Atlantic Oceans meet. So no insightful thoughts(ha!) week, just some pictures.   […]

The Book’s Cover

The Book’s Cover

You’ve heard it as much as I have. You can’t judge a book by it’s cover. And I think for the most part we believe it, at least in our general everyday secular lives. Don’t mistake belief for practice, but we do believe it. I was a bit surprised to hear on two separate occasions […]

Hmmmm

I’m sure you’ve noticed the declining frequency of the blogs. It took me a while to figure out just why it was getting harder. Life is so routine that unless something unusual happens or the rare epiphany, there just doesn’t seem like anything to write about that I think would be interesting. So this is […]

In Theory vs In Practice

Supposing We Really Found Him? It is always shocking to meet life where we thought we were alone. ‘Look out!’ we cry, ‘it’s alive’. And therefore this is the very point at which so many draw back— I would have done so myself if I could— and proceed no further with Christianity. An ‘impersonal God’— […]
