What's in a uniform?

I have shunned uniforms as a whole. Except in the arena of sports where teamwork is part of donning the uniform, I have felt it stifling to individual expression.

But an interesting thing happened this morning that is making me reconsider. I had a Sunnyvale Challenge Team meeting (a group of non-profit workers, civic leaders, […]

Ralph Winter’s legacy

I’ve been reading some memories and thoughts about the late Ralph Winter in the latest issue of Mission Frontiers.

And it’s really interesting.

I first met Ralph at Urbana 90, when I was but a wide-eyed college-freshmen who was probably too young to be at something like Urbana. I attended one of his seminars […]

Missions at HOME?

What is a missionary anyway?

I read Alan Knox’s blog, and he has an interesting post on the topic: ====

A “missionary” agrees Last week, I wrote a post called “Staying Home = Missionary” in which I said that every believer should see himself or herself as a minister and a missionary. The only difference […]

This is a test post to see if the categories are up and running correctly…

My name is Leslie, and I’ve got a husband, named Mike.

Susan Boyle, Viral Video, and natural design… a.k.a. “The Church's Got Talent”

99.99% in right standing

It’s strange realizing that my own self-image is so different from God’s image of me. That still surprises me a lot and fills me with wonder and gratitude. Especially when the Lord breaks through and speaks to me about it in new ways.

Like a few weeks ago, I had a very vivid dream. I […]

Count Zinzendorf, the Moravian movement and Herrnhut

One of the most important yet little known people in the history of modern movements is Count Nikolaus Ludwig Von Zinzendorf, founding leader of the Moravians and their German community called Herrnhut.

Leslie and I just finished a nice little book called, The Lord of the Ring, by Phil Anderson that details the life and […]

Musings on organic spirituality: what this world needs is more people who are passionately in love

I first got my ear bent to this idea when in conversation with my friend, Dezi B@ker (Mr. Organic Spirituality himself). But as I have pondered this more in my preparation for what I want to share with some Kenyan refugees this week, I think there is something deeply profound and directional in there.

I […]
