“Racism” Disclaimer – Part 2

  I have been hemming and hawing about how to write the next blog post on of my "calling out racism" series. I was supposed to be sharing my own experiences, specifically in regards to racism in the church, but at the same time, I never want to come across as though I am rebuking… Continue reading “Racism” Disclaimer – Part 2

To Lent or Not to Lent: A Family Update

2018 Update: I wrote this blog post in 2014 when we were members of an Acts 29 church back in Bellingham, Washington. Currently, we are in San Diego and now part of an SBC church that does not practice Ash Wednesday collectively.  However, our family still acknowledges Ash Wednesday privately in our home. We are… Continue reading To Lent or Not to Lent: A Family Update

Cops – an unreached people group

  Dear American Christian, What do you think would happen if you saw law enforcement personnel as an unreached people group to pursue instead of picking up stones to throw at?  For those that find it easier to see them as the enemy, I guess it's easier to hate them, feel threatened by them, or… Continue reading Cops – an unreached people group

Comfort zone is… Continue reading Our LA mission field update – Rain

A rebuke to majority and minority Chrisitans on the issue of race tension.

Last night I took my kiddos, 10 and 15, along with a few of the youth from our church to one of the biggest finals in break dancing culture. Since moving to Los Angeles to be a part of a new church plant, we are eagerly looking for opportunities for our family to engage in… Continue reading A rebuke to majority and minority Chrisitans on the issue of race tension.

Waiting, Fear, Making Home, and Making Bread

This comes from our Family on Mission section. (see above) We really don't have much normalcy in our day yet. We found a teeny tiny apartment in Long Beach, no, not close to the beach, but rather to our church plant target area in North Long Beach, but not quite. Even though I love that… Continue reading Waiting, Fear, Making Home, and Making Bread
