Can’t Be Silent

“‘I tell you,’” he replied, “‘if they keep quiet, the rocks will cry out.’” –Luke 19:40 The song of creation. Can you hear it? You and I are God’s special guests in a masterpiece performed in His honor that He conducts. Not only that, He’s given us “first chair.” In orchestra speak, first chair is […]


4’33”

We were finally there. The 10th Anniversary Gala of The Walt Disney Concert Hall had been circled on our calendar for months. Loretta and I did nothing short of soak up every moment. We walked the red carpet, stood in the lobby, ate hors d’oeuvres, and to strangers who were equally as excited as we […]


Side Show

“He must increase, but I must decrease.” –John 3:30 “The kid’s got skills,” I said to myself as I sat at a traffic light. Waiting my turn, I looked to my right to see this kid on the corner. He was dancing with one of those big cardboard ads, flipping and turning it with ease. […]


There Goes The Heart

When I opened up the week with our theme of “heart” I wasn’t quite ready to experience writer’s block. And not the kind that sometimes arrives when a writer is trying to be creative, ohhh no, but the kind that arrives when there is too much to harness and gather. To try and capture the […]


A Heart That Reached

“She thought, ‘If I can just touch his robe, I will be healed.’” –Matthew 9:21 On Monday in your responses you gave some incredible examples of Biblical characters with “heart.” I have one to add to our list. She did what a suffering Job couldn’t. Jacob, David — them, too. Run through the Bible and […]


Hearts On Fire

Read: Matthew 26 “The spirit is willing, but the body is weak.” –Matthew 26:41 In my second favorite movie of all-time (Rocky II), Rocky walks to his trainer’s apartment in the middle of the night to ask for his locker back; he wants to fight again. Dismissive, Mickey delivers one of the most painful and […]


The Week Of Heart

“Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” –1 Samuel 16: 7 Secretariat was fast. As one of the top three thoroughbreds of all time, Secretariat was in a class by himself. In fact, no other horse has ever run 1 1/2 miles faster than Secretariat. Of the greatest sports […]


Time Of Your Life

Life. It’s been our theme this week. And while I had a gazillion topics I could have covered, I hope you enjoyed reading as much as I enjoyed writing. This week David reminded us to mix it up and get into the fight of our lives. We talked about personal victories (very personal) and we […]


For Those Who Can’t, Stand

“…Cheer up! On your feet! He’s calling you.” –Mark 10:49 Hope you don’t mind, but in keeping with our “LIVE LIFE” theme this week, I thought I’d pull a short paragraph from the book. And just wait till you see some of the comments we’ve received from it. “I sat behind a man in church […]


Until It Gets To Jesus

Charles Spurgeon once said, “It’s not a sermon until it gets to Jesus.” Go ahead and read that sentence again, and this time let it marinade a minute before you move on. Sweet, right? If you’ve noticed another theme this week, it’s not an accident. Monday we said it was time to live, and yesterday […]
