A Lenten Journey of a Different Kind

Have you ever felt as if you were a bit out of step with everyone else? Well, that’s the way I felt when I walked into the last local church I served for the very first time. I had no idea what was important to the people there. I didn’t know where they were in their spiritual journey. I wondered what type of worship they responded to or if they felt a call to engage in reaching the people in the community. I entered the doors that first week with so many questions and feeling as if I was out of step with everyone else.

Message from Dan: This is the world I want to live in. . .

Through the years I keep having the same dream, over and over. . .it is a place of my childhood in which I would play in the neighborhood streets freely and openly with friends well past dark. It is a place in which as a child I would walk to and from school without my parents being worried about my well-being.  It is a dream about a time in which school and church were places of sanctuary and safety.

Mark’s Musings – Getting Ready

While we were in Alaska this last summer, I decided that I was ready to start having aquariums again. I had taken about a 15 year break after having aquariums for most of my life. After thinking about it for quite a long time, I decided that I wanted to go back to where I had started as a kid. That was raising guppies (Poecilia reticulata). This was even before Fancy Guppies were easily available. As I researched guppies, I kept coming across Endlers (also known as Endler’s Guppies, or Endler’s Livebearers, Poecilia wingei). Endlers remind me a lot of the guppies that I started with, and eventually I decided that I wanted to buy some Endlers.

What churches can learn from the Olympics

You turn on your television and see a large rock sliding down what looks like a shuffleboard made of ice. In front of this rock are two people, sometimes in crazy pants, furiously brushing the ice with what looks like an industrial strength Swiffer. Next thing you know, three hours have passed, and you’ve become a passionate fan of the winter olympic sport of curling.
