Small Things? Not Really

While a Sr. in High School (30+ yrs ago!!), I took the US military’s ASVAB test, which lists your top career opportunities based on your aptitude. My #1? FUNERAL DIRECTOR!! I scoffed. I already knew I was headed for Bible College & would someday be a Pastor. Little did I know how influential the role […]

Why Is the Sun Up in the Middle of the Night?

I’m in Chicago on a couple hour layover. It’s 4:10 am according to my body, but Chicago believes it’s 6:10 am. I left LAX at about 10:45 pm. All this makes for a short night, but I’m sure my body will painfully remind me of that in short order once I arrive in Christiansburg, Virginia. […]

Waiting For A Jet Plane, Among Other Things

Sitting at Chicago O’Hare Airport, waiting for my 9:05 (7:05 PST) to board and take off at 11:00 (9:00 PST), which is midnight in Columbus, Ohio, my destination. Attending our annual Foursquare Convention with about 2,000 other Foursquare Pastors and Leaders. Circumstances have kept me from attending the last two years, so I’m looking forward […]

Time Warp, Part 6

Late Friday night, it’s been quite a week since I last posted on Sunday night. We traveled about 1,500 miles through 5 states in 4 days, arriving at the home of some lifelong friends in Damascus, Oregon, only 5 miles from where Jonathan has been since March 28 at Northwest Behavioral Healthcare Services. One of […]

Two Weeks Later, Fantastic Voyage Continues

That was the movie … Fantastic Voyage. The one where the people are sent in a capsule through a person’s body. Kept forgetting the name of that movie that described my capusle edoscopy procedure I last posted about. Still waiting for the results to come back from that. In the mean time, on the way […]

Preparing to Unplug

Great Saturday! One of the goals of my sabbatical has been to experience, and allow my family to experience, what it’s like to live a somewhat “normal” schedule of life. A Pastor’s schedule is quite interesting. Many think we only work one day a week (when we’re preaching). But nothing could be further from the […]

Summer Sabbatical Scoop 4

This has been a great week. Jonathan & I are really enjoying our time together. He doesn’t outright say it, but I can tell it’s been good for him too. He’s not only had me, but a couple of buddies as well. Their family has a timeshare in Solvang, so they’ve been able to be […]

Sabbatical Serenades 1

If you’re savvy to another title for these posts I’ll do once in a while during the sabbatical other than “Sabbatical Serenades”, let me know. I’m open. Couldn’t come up with anything more creative or alliteratorical (is that a word?) alliterative (Thanks David Simkovsky!!). We are almost at the end of the second week of […]

Upcoming Sabbatical

A week ago Sunday (on February 22), we had our Annual Congregation Meeting. I wrote about some of it as it relates to my upcoming Sabbatical here. I plan to write about it here to keep everyone (family, friends, and church) up to date on our plans, as well as to give those outside NewHeart […]
