Over the past 8 days, I’ve had the unique opportunity to speak at two different events on two topics that took me in a similar direction but down very different paths.  The first event, was the September 21st Ascension worship night at Celebration Baptist Church.  On that night I talked about Nehemiah, a person and topic that I’ve been consumed with for more than a year now.  And in this context, Nehemiah’s story fit well with the discussion we’ve been having with the Ascension group about our existence here on earth not being about us, but being all about Him. <click here to read the message

And then last night, I felt very privileged to join Ryan Earnhardt and the Access218 group for their 3rd reBirth Creative Arts Festival.  Derrick, Access218’s Director (and an old friend), gave me the call a month or so ago and asked if I would share a little about the convergence of art and faith.  And since this has been so monumental in my recent past, I leapt at the opportunity.  <click here to read the message

I hope you find these messages both enlightening and relevant to where you are today.  If they stir something up in you, leave a comment.  I’d like to hear your comments… 

much love,
