Being POTS

Part of the reason I started this blog was to write about the adventure that is parenting teenagers. Being a student pastor I have a unique perspective on this, but I don't have first hand knowledge of raising teens as my boys are 8 and almost 4. We understand that parents are in uncharted territory... Continue Reading →

​Chris Pratt and Gen Z

So I woke up on Tuesday morning to videos of Chris Pratt's acceptance speech for his Generation award at the MTV Movie Awards. I was expecting funny quips with some nuggets of wisdom woven in, but I was greeted by so much more. I was immediately taken back to my high school graduation and "Don't... Continue Reading →

Three Little Letters

There are 2 different groups of people that read my blog: those that know me from my current context at FBC Enterprise and friends and family from other locales. For those that aren't from Enterprise, I want to take just a few lines to explain what that context is. Here in Enterprise, we have Fort... Continue Reading →

Why I don’t like running

Today, I wanted to take some time to discuss a personal journey that I am on and to talk about something that I have very strong feelings about. I don't like running.

This time of year always makes me start singing Europe's song "Final Countdown". I just had to tell Alexa to play something else because that song is still bouncing around in my head. Graduation time...the final countdown is on. I have been in Student Ministry for 17 years. Most of those years have been in... Continue Reading →

Peace in The Storm

We are in the midst of a storm...a storm of opinions and outrage. We live in a world where opinions are cheap and discourse is a lost art. It all about yelling louder than the other side and then plugging your ears so that you don't have to hear their retort. Then the process of... Continue Reading →

Be the Tech Guy

So my kids love Thursday/Friday mornings. We have "Donuts with Dad" day once a week. We get up a little early, get ready for school, and head over to Dunkin Donuts for the boys to get a donut of their choice and for dad to get a large coffee. We sit in Dunkin and have... Continue Reading →
