If Clichés Could Kill You

As you will hear in this PODCAST, there is a myth so commonly taught that it has almost become cliché. So universal is this teaching that if I echoed it in this message, very few would even question it.

Yet, it is one of the most exhaustingly exasperating, or self-exalting teachings we could ever hear.

And in that sense, it can often be diabolically defeating for any Christian. Perhaps even for you.

Give this a listen, and see what you think.

How I Lost My Faith (and Got It Back Again)–My Two-Year Odyssey in a Spiritual Wasteland

I am coming off of an exhilarating week with the BEST high school students you’d ever want to meet.

In this PODCAST, you will hear my opening night message at Hartland Christian Camp. Believing that “openness begets openness,” I get very open, very real, very fast—with them, and now with you.

May my words be a blessing.

“While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks by Night…”

The Christmas story is without a doubt #QuiteAStory.

A familiar story. A profound story. An oft-repeated story.

So familiar is this story that I really do not need to comment on it.

Or do I?

As you will hear in this PODCAST, the principal parts of the story are well-known. The principal players in this biblical drama are names everyone has heard — Mary, Joseph, Jesus.

Yet, with all of that familiarity, there is one little tidbit of information — one word, really — that absolutely jumps off the page at me.

  • One word that puts the entire Christmas story into its proper perspective.
  • One word that goes straight to the heart of who Jesus was, who God is, what the Gospel is all about.
  • One word that goes straight to the heart of who we are.

One word…
