Taste and See

"The ears tests words as the palate tastes food." Job 34:3 Have you ever wondered what it is that cause some people to find a certain food palatable or enjoyable while that same food makes others gag? I have. For instance, I can't understand how some people don't like soy or tofu. Do we decide [...]

Certain in Our Uncertainty

"He [Abraham] did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief. . . fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform." Romans 4:19-21 A theme in our work is the identification of the universal human condition that wants life to be a certain way. I would go as far [...]

Equipped for Greatness

"He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified." Hebrews 10:14 (NKJV) How do you see yourself? Or more properly, what sphere of time do you see yourself through? If you are like me you probably see yourself through the lens of your history; past experiences—both successes and failures combine to form a picture of [...]

What Are You Making Insignificant?

"We don't yet see things clearly. We're squinting in a fog, peering through a mist." 1 Corinthians 13:12a, (The Message) One transformational presupposition that never ceases to amaze me is how our experience of living is primarily influenced by our interpretation of ourselves, events and others. In other words, your current experience in life is [...]

What Are You Making Significant?

Passing with Flying Colors

Split Screen

I really enjoyed the movie 500 Days of Summer. In it there is a scene where they show, side by side in a split screen, two different experiences of the lead character. One side of the split screen is entitled “Expectations” and the other “Reality”. As you can imagine, the expectations do not match the [...]

Saying Yes

Teams that come together to for our trainings and workshops often choose themes. A recent team for an Impact Training chose saying "yes" to possibility. Actually choosing yes. It got me to thinking how any things I disqualify because of past experiences. I often find myself not saying "yes" as much as "yes, but". The [...]

I met a fascinating 70 something year old Korean man recently. In very broken English he helped me appreciate something I "knew" and believed but his almost childlike way of presenting it really reached me. He was talking about his garden- specifically the dark, black soil, and how from that darkness, with no color and [...]
