to own a dragon

When I first saw that Donald Miller was going to release a book about growing up without a father, I was a little disappointed. It’s not that it’s a great subject, but I was never without my dad, and it just seemed like such a serious turn for him to take in his writing. The […]

I’m a bit annoyed with myself for how little I’ve been posting of late. I thought I’d write a post about that, if nothing else just to give myself some satisfaction that I actually posted something besides a brief book review. Truthfully, I think I just wanted an excuse to post my South Park likeness. […]

I’ve heard from a number of people that Mark Buchanan’s books are worth reading. I’d never gotten around to one until I saw that he had released a book about Sabbath called The Rest of God. The concept of Sabbath has been near to the heart of our family for the last few years, so […]

Euro-Emerging Revolutionaries (Positive Church) I’ve been reading Jason Clark’s blog for the past few years, and had a few good interactions with him on email, so I was excited to meet him in person. I think he represents a great voice for the church, and I doubt these notes do his ideas any justice. Premise: […]

theories and gabbledy-gook

I was exchanging emails with Mike DeVries this morning and he asked me how the Revolution Conference was going so far… I find myself struggling to engage in this first session. I’ve spent plenty of time grappling with some of the ideas, and the theories, of how the church is changing with the culture. I […]

I’m at the Revolution Conference this weekend. I’ll probably try to share a few notes here and there, but right now, I’m sitting next to Justin Baeder who is typing feverishly, so go visit his blog. 🙂 Note: Bob Hyatt is also blogging more extensively than I am.
