Luminouré – Part Four: A Partial Truth

Every person has a context or framework of knowledge they use to understand the world around them. Some of these are more effective than others, and I continue looking into my past to see how the development of my own worldview has been largely centred on the three foundational assumptions I made in 2010

The Power of an Ordinary Life – Harvey Hook

In God’s sight, there are no “little people” and no “little places” – only individuals who offer their lives in consecrated moments of obedience to God. When they do this, he gives them the power to influence the flow of an entire generation. Harvey Hook – “The Power of an Ordinary Life” (inspired by Francis Schaeffer) This morning I was encouraged by this quote from a man who invested in my life when I was ‘just another college student.’ Harvey Hook saw the value in my ordinary life and his investment continues to this day in the lives of many...

Disruptive Prayer

  What is it about spending time in the presence of God that completely disrupts the quiet serenity of what I call my life?

Time – A Poetic Reflection

What became of lofty dreams, And noble goals expressed? By those whom it would always seem Could reach desired happiness. Yet, came the day to count the cost. Where others, seeing nothing lost; To them, just emptiness and dust. Time, said one to his good friend, Will lead all men to weep. For only in its passing bend Its treasure found, too deep. By such a day as could be seen This priceless rare commodity Already spent, on lesser things. <a href=”http://www.bloglovin.com/blog/12059605/?claim=ek6gq6663n8″>Follow my blog with Bloglovin</a>

Leave the Crib. Learn to Crawl.

What kind of parent wants their little child to grow up and sit in their lap all day? What kind of parents are happy when their 25 year old son cannot figure out what to do with his life besides sit in their basement, eat their food, and play video games? What kind of parent dreams of raising a child that will one day do nothing with their life besides come over to visit every now and again? Every parent wants their child to love them, but every parent also wants their child to grow up at some point. The...
