Catch Phrases Heard On the Way to the Finish Line

I try to exercise as often as possible. My current travel schedule makes it more difficult to do everyday, but I know for my personal health and well-being exercise is an important part of life and leadership. Before knee problems, I was an avid runner. I ran for pleasure, but also in quite a few races. I’ve even run a marathon and numerous half marathons. I learned, however, distance is relative. If a 5K is your milestone, then it will be a long race. I knew a guy who runs the 100 mile races. (...

He Changed ‘Oklahoma!’ But ‘Oklahoma!’ Hasn’t Changed Him.

The Old Testament Figures Hidden Behind the Annunciation

Behind the Annunciation stand several familiar Old Testament figures like Eve, Sarah, and Hannah. But there is another set of hidden figures who foreshadow Mary’s encounter with the angel. They include a warrior judge, an assassin widow, and a runaway slave. ‘The Lord is with you’ The first thing the angel tells Mary is, “The Lord is with you” (Luke 1:28). These words of consolation echo a similar statement an angel made to an ancient Israelite, Gideon, who was a judge: The messenger of the L...

Another useful reminder of the need for more criminal justice diversity on the federal bench

Long-time readers know I have been talking a long time about the prosecutorial tilt that impacts who gets nominated and confirmed for seats on the US Supreme Court and lower federal courts.  Encouragingly, the need for more balance in the courts is getting more attention as criminal justice reform continues to garner attention (especially among would-be Democratic Prez candidates).   Consider, for example, this piece on this topic at Slate by Kyle Barry under the headline "Democratic Presidentia...

Is the Jezreel Valley the Stage for the Final Battle?

It’s been called the “heart” of the promised land—a 141-square-mile triangle in the north-central area of Israel. Today, the Jezreel Valley is Israel’s breadbasket. A beautiful plain of fertile fields and winding roads, it’s hemmed in by rolling mountains that offer stunning scenic views. But its modern-day beauty hides a bloody and violent history. Here Jezreel’s rulers killed Ahab’s 70 sons, put their heads in baskets, and brought them to Jehu (2 Kings 10:1–11). Queen Jezebel murdered Na...

The Best Movies You’ve Never Seen from Black Directors

(Welcome to The Best Movies You’ve Never Seen, a series that takes a look at slightly more obscure, under-the-radar, or simply under-appreciated movies. This week we give a nod towards Black History Month with a look at some of the best, little-seen films from black filmmakers.) Great films and filmmakers are worth celebrating all year round, but we live in a world that likes to categorize and quantify, meaning February has been designated as Black History Month (and Women in Horror month too f...

Blaze Bernstein’s killing one year later: How his death has impacted Orange County and beyond

On Jan. 10, 2018, Orange County Sheriff’s Department investigators found 19-year-old Blaze Bernstein’s body in a shallow grave near Borrego Park in Foothill Ranch. Officials determined he had been stabbed 20 times, killed in an act of rage. Bernstein was gay and Jewish, the grandson of a Holocaust survivor.

7 Excuses for Not Doing What God has Called Us To Do

There’s always an excuse if we’re looking for one. I’ve made so many excuses in my life. For years I may have sensed God was calling me into vocational ministry, but I knew I had to provide for my family. Also, I would be leading with the limps of previous failures – how and why would God use me? I didn’t have the most pastoral qualities either. For example, I’m far more of an organizational developer than I am a caregiver for the sick. There were a dozen others. If anyone had an encouragement f...

God Does Give You More than You Can Handle

This week the blog is sponsored by Tyndale, and the post is written by Jason Hague, author of Aching Joy.  I am richly blessed in the community department. Not everyone is so lucky. Like others who are in the throes of crisis, autism parents often seek comfort from friends, but all too often, they get inspirational platitudes instead. Those platitudes aren’t malicious, of course. Just unhelpful. Here’s the most common example: “God never gives you anything you can’t handle.” ...

Dark Horse’s ‘Black Hammer’ Comic Series Being Adapted for Film and Television

Erik Michael’s Refining Moment: New Single – “You Are All I Need”

For a young hard working man, Erik Michael earned a steady, comfortable income in sales as well as achieving a platform in music and ministry many might envy. However, life has a way of peeling away what symbolizes our security. Soon, Erik met an empty refrigerator each night. The choice to pursue helping a church plant while supporting himself with contract work stripped away his independent streak. His pride was punctured.

God Will Sustain You a Day at a Time

Earlier this year, my arms completely gave out as I was getting ready. I couldn’t even get dressed by myself. I was exhausted, and it wasn’t even nine in the morning. I suffer from post-polio syndrome, and I’m never sure when some new pain is a daily setback or the new normal. I didn’t want to go on like this. What was this day going to hold? I cried out to the Lord, telling him that all of this felt colossally unfair. I ended by declaring, “I can’t live like this for the rest of my li...

10 Prayers of a Christian Leader

A leader’s most effective tool may be prayer. For the Christian leader, especially, prayer should be critical to how we lead. I’m 54 and I’ve not mastered this yet – even though I know how powerful prayer is for the believer. Our leader, Jesus was always walking in prayer with the Father. Jesus said I do nothing except what the Father tells me to do. So, when Jesus needed to feed the multitudes, he lifted up the bread and fish and prayed. Just before Jesus was about to be crucified – At the wea...
