I heard In Oslo Speech, Obama Must Sidestep Land Mines on NPR last week. I believe that the method for writing a presidential speech could be applied to writing a sermon. Here is an excerpt from the article: Those speeches are crafted in a tiny, low-ceilinged room in the basement of the West Wing, directly […]
At the recent National Church Leadership Conference, I had the opportunity to be a part of a workshop about pastoring an online network church. The presenter, Reggie Kidd, is part of the leadership at Northland, A Church Distributed. He shared a video which I found to be fascinating, encouraging and hopeful. What do you think?

It was a varied group of campus pastors, worship venue leads, pastors and others that came and went over the course of the weekend. It was time away from normal settings at Heartland Presbyterian Center – close to Parkville, […]
Sometimes I am not quite sure what to do with my hands while singing at church. I am not particularly comfortable with raising my hands, even when the song says “I lift my hands.” This is part of my personality and part of my current context. I want to share with you the things that […]
Thanks to Nick K. for assistance with the video file. This is the sermon that I preached on February 25, 2009 for Ash Wednesday. Enjoy!
