Compartmentalizing: A Leader’s Ability or Disability?

2017-04-30T02:11:37+00:00

For years I have prided myself on my ability, at least perceived that way, to package up a bad day or bad meeting and head into the next with the lingering thoughts and feelings of the last neatly wrapped up in some place out of view of the rest of [...]

‘Missional’: The Smoke Screen For Evangelism-Hating Hipsters.

2017-04-30T02:13:14+00:00

Yesterday was a monumental day in the life of Disciples Church. If you had been there you would immediately say it was because of all the baptisms we did during the service, in fact we did more baptisms in yesterday's service than we have done in our first two years [...]

Two weeks ago I had the privilege to make the trip from sunny California, where God is, to spend a few days in Dallas, where He is obviously...not. While there, I was at the Monday Night Football game when the Cowboys narrowly defeated their divisional rivals The Redskins. Now let [...]
