I flew out to Chicago to meet some old friends, make some new friends, share a short chat on Human Life & Dignity and enjoyed the perks of some generous friends who took a couple of us to the U2 360 World Tour. Coincidentally, their tour launched in Chicago (the night before).

My family and I really don’t have the luxury to go to big concerts… In fact, this is only the 2nd “big” show I’ve ever been to [The first being my sophomore year in high school].

Anyone care to guess who I went to see for my First Concert?

Anyway, U2 was Read the rest of this entry »

resting, growing, freezing, and jazzing in chicago

Jet lag sucks.  I can’t seem to get over it.  I sleep at a normal time but have been getting up around 2 or 3am – every day.  I look at Jason, one of my church staff, sleeping in the other bed in our hotel room like a peaceful lamb and want to punch his head.  But, I remind myself that Jesus wouldn’t do that so I let him sleep since he probably doesn’t get much at Seattle with their 4 month old baby.  But I digress.

RESTING:  I’m here in Chicago trying to get my body up to speed.  I don’t care how holy or spiritual you are:  If you don’t get sleep, everyone turns into a jerk.  Actually took a great nap yesterday and woke up like this:

And interestingly or annoyingly, many folks at this conference have been telling my how ragged and “gray” I look. I tell them to ‘shut it!’  But it is true, I am getting some serious white and gray hair everywhere.

GROWING: Anyway, I’m also here learning.  Have enjoyed hearing from some of the featured speakers like Phyllis Tickle and will be hearing from Gary Haugen of International Justice Read the rest of this entry »

Desert hiking. Made it. Barely. But worth it. Such are many of life's challenges. Sabbath. Soaking in a desert sunset. A new experience and interestingly, very spiritual. Happy Earth Day. Enjoyed this epic hike through the woods last weekend with my family. "You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.” - Isaiah 55:12 Soaking in this view and taking a moment to pray for our nation. God's creation has a way of reminding me that no matter my worries, God is greater. #selah Nature and hiking with my bride. Sorry for the PDA. I'm getting too old to hold back. 
Being immersed in creation is the best way to recover from jetlag and process the intense trip to learn/hear the stories of Syrian refugees in the Middle East. * Bonus advice: Making your kids take the photo and insist on several shots at several angles at the perfect sunlight might be the best form of entertainment for parents.
