Failing forward

May 22, 2014 in Philosophy

As a leader, I’m finding myself forgiving myself often for failure. Sometimes, in several different areas. Sometimes, in the same area over and over again. My last blog post was last year, where I threatened that I was going to let this site just fall away, and disappear into the void. Well, I failed even at that.

Why is fasting so darned slow?

Sep 20, 2012 in Philosophy

Northside Kingsway Church, where I serve as worship leader, officially launches on September 23. While we’ve been holding regular 10:00 am services since April, on this date we celebrate all the work God has done through us before, and declare the next phase in the history of this church.

The value of the writer-editor-publisher relationship

Jul 31, 2012 in Philosophy

Our church right now is small. We started holding services in April, and have deliberately not promoted ourselves widespread because we are still renovating the building to give it new life. At the same time, we are raising up a ministry team to be prepared serve the people once the floodgates open and the hungry […]

Change approaching on the horizon. Ahoy!

Jun 30, 2009 in Philosophy

Funny how the next generation always finds ways to upset the apple cart for the one previous. Every new move of God is met with resistance. The introduction of new technology and methods disrupts the security of longtime employees. A new baby threatens its siblings’ desires for their parents’ attention.

This comic strip applies to so many areas of my life right now, and I’m sure you will find the concept familiar to you as well. Navigating change well is all a matter of managing relationships.

Peace in the midst of chaos

Jun 05, 2009 in Philosophy

I love being busy. The bad part is that too often busy-ness involves more than a little chaos. Fortunately my wife told me about a dream she had while we were surrounded with our boxes of stuff packed for us while our home was restored after a dishwasher flood. When God is in the centre everything is peaceful in the midst of chaos.

Professional copyright statements

Apr 16, 2009 in Philosophy

Today’s post is merely a pet peeve I have about the lack of concern people have about the copyright statement at the bottom of their sites and documents. I used the traditional publishing copyright statements since my foray into comic book publishing back in the 80s. Naturally, this becomes the default format I turn to when I write my copyright statements. It also makes me sound like a stickler about seemingly insignificant details.

25 Not-so Random Things About Me

Mar 01, 2009 in Philosophy

I was tagged on Facebook with this meme by at least three people. Fortunately nobody sent it by email because I totally hate spam. Not one to follow the crowd, I chose to ignore it and just let it die. But then I got the inspired to turn this excessive waste of Internet bandwidth into something constructive and inspiring—something that I hope will start a world-changing revolution.

Here is my list of 25 things that you need to know about me, with thanks to Pastor David Koop, who, over ten years ago, first introduced me to “Who I Am”, scripture-based affirmations of our true identity.

The Bible predates me, so I can’t claim any any copyright to this list. Feel free to share this list with anyone, print a copy to read daily, or post it on your own blog. Better still, compile your own list of affirmations based on what God shows you about you. In my introduction I said this list is endless—after all, it’s eternal! For example, here’s a version of Who I Am from Joyce Meyers’ website, with links to confessions, prayers, and additional scripture references “for a sound mind”.
