If you are one of the 5-7% of Christians who have same sex attraction (SSA), and you believe it’s wrong to act on that attraction and pursue a gay or lesbian relationship, what do you do? This has been one of the most painful, confusing, and heart-wrenching questions I’ve wrestled...
I’ll never forget back in seminary overhearing a fellow student say, “Wow, he’s not a pastor for a reason.” It took me second to figure out what he meant. But after listening to the same dry, monotone, impractical and irrelevant lecture read off the pages of 20 year old...
Most of us could think of a lot reasons for not becoming missionaries. Some of these reasons may be legitimate. Many will probably be excuses. Today I’m going to share the story of one of my co-workers. Kristen’s reason for staying off the mission field is mind-boggling. While serving on...

I am a recovering burned out pastor. Doing fine, thank you. But I hit the wall several years back and had to resign a great ministry. The church I was pastoring was excited about the future and eager to reach out. We did some good things, and the future...
