Dear Friends,

This morning on the drive to work I made a big mistake:  I turned on the local news radio station.  I say it was a mistake because, while I wanted to hear the weather and traffic report, what I got instead was an argument between two political pundits on t...

Dear Friends,

On the way to work today, I passed an early-morning jogger in our neighborhood.  As I drove by, my first thought was, “Wow, I wish I was that disciplined!”  My second thought was, “Never mind, I’m good where I am.”  My thought process kind of made me chuck...

Dear Friends, 

Buckle up, because I have big news.  The Harvest Community Church is getting ready to move!  Here’s the scoop: when The Harvest was started, the founding vision was to help meet the practical needs of people in a high poverty community, while personally c...

Dear Friends,

I struggle with waiting. Whether it’s waiting for the microwave to heat up my coffee, waiting for traffic to clear, or waiting for someone to text me back - I struggle with waiting.  It’s something I’ve wrestled with for most of my life, and while I’ve got...

Dear Friends,

Dear Friends,

Yesterday we had some local government officials stop by for a tour of our church facility.  They wanted to see the space because the city is doing construction in the neighborhood, and they would like to use some of the empty offices at our church for the...

Dear Friends,

This morning I woke up with an old hymn running through my mind.  It was “What A Friend We Have In Jesus”, and the phrase that kept playing on repeat in my mind was:  “What a friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and griefs to bear.  What a privilege to ca...

Dear Friends,

Today I’m attending a workshop for pastors that is focused on how the church can be more effective in helping heal a broken and hurting world.  When I signed up for this conference back in February, I had no idea how timely it would be for what’s going on...

Dear Friends,

On the way to work this morning I passed a truck with a bumper sticker that said:  “God, Family, Country”.  As I read it, I was reminded that no matter who we are, in order to exist in our day-to-day lives, we have to set priorities.  It may not always see...
