Character: More or Less

So .... Twitter has announced that, effective immediately, they are expanding their character limits by two times. In other words, instead of a 140 characters limit, it has been bumped up to 280 characters. I must admit, as a content creator I LOVE this new expanded freedom! There are thoughts I want to share, but … Continue reading Character: More or Less

The Art of Moving On

It's been said, time and again, that everything that has a beginning has an end; yet we tend to always be surprised when relationships end. Excluding death, people will end relationships for any variety of reasons. Some legitimate, others ... not so much. As an introvert, I tend to be somewhat of a loner, but … Continue reading The Art of Moving On

Happy Slightly Used Year

We are 10 days into the new year. As usual many of us have made resolutions to do better and be better, but unfortunately some have already fallen off the wagon.

Why Is It So Wrong Just To Feel?

There is a statement going around, that honestly makes me cringe just about every time I hear it. "They're in their feelings." It's not so much the words that are spoken, it is usually the tone in which they are spoken. It usually sounds condescending, almost like mockery. It's the tone you would use to … Continue reading Why Is It So Wrong Just To Feel?

Last night I got to the walking trail a little later than expected, so I figured I would have a nice quiet workout with very few people out there with me. Boy was I wrong. It was little league football and cheerleader practice going on in the field in the center of the walking trail. … Continue reading A Voice In A World That Doesn’t Listen

Don’t Be Desperate

"Sure I can swim!" Why, Lord?! Why did I lie like that? Six or seven years old, visiting a friend of my dad's, I see a beautiful pool in the back yard. Being that it was a hot summers day, and my parents would always let me get into the pool at hotels, I thought … Continue reading Don’t Be Desperate

Everyone has flaws. I think it is all agreed, that no one is perfect, but I think we only tend to recognize that fact after making mistakes. It is important that you and I fully identify our flaws, and NOT do the following : Don't Confuse - There are certain things that make us an … Continue reading Murphy’s Flaws

Dear Small Church Pastor

The church world is full of different types of people. The diversity in the Lord's church is a testament of God's love and power, that misses no one. Regardless of the state we're in, God's love and power is never out of our reach. Just like there is diversity among God's people, there is also diversity … Continue reading Dear Small Church Pastor

Dear Worship Leader

(I just read a fabulous article, by Chad Brawley, discussing the importance of the corporate worship moment. He argues that our culture has become one of performing and not worship. This got me to thinking about "Dear Church Musician", so I decided it was time to write another letter.) As a church musician, worship leader … Continue reading Dear Worship Leader
