Fearless Questions

Following our Questions to Freedom

Security Cameras and Companions

We are sitting around the living room.  Five men of different ages…brought together by a common friend who had high hopes of us becoming a band of brothers in the Christian life.  I only knew two of the guys well.  One I was acquainted with…one a complete stranger. Our well meaning friend, fresh off a […]

Episode 03: Wayne Jacobsen – The God Journey

Have you ever wondered what it feels like for God to speak to you? How do we even know it’s Him? What about those people who feel like God is inviting them away from the part of the church that primarily meets on Sunday mornings around the world…is that o.k.?  Is it possible to love […]

You Alright? (A little Encouragement for Parents of Teenagers)

It’s hard to find the parent of a teenager who hasn’t felt the frustration of asking your son or daughter how their day at school was…only to be answered with the dreaded one-word answer:  ‘Fine’. “Fine, good? or Fine, bad?” we ask.  “Just…whatever…I don’t know…fine.”  It’s not that we don’t understand…after all…we often give the […]

Lost in Translation

Between appointments yesterday I made a quick drive to a local shopping mall where I would return a new set of lacrosse pads that didn’t quite fit my son as expected.  Crowds, Consumerism and Food Courts!  Having turned the corner around Halloween, we’ve just launched into high season of shopping mall madness. I managed to […]

Spiritual Conversations and Pancakes on the Ceiling

If you fancy yourself as someone interested in spiritual things (not an expert…just interested), then at some point you probably remember finding yourself in a conversation with someone of a different worldview than you offering a new quote or fact that you feel certain is undermining the validity of your faith and belief system.  It’s […]

My Deepest Question for God

I’ve spent years studying theology. Read more books than I could ever remember. I’ve served people around the world. And I’ve sat with untold numbers of people as they wrestle through their life’s complications and unknowings. All along the way, I’ve tried to tell people that God loved them. Told them that there is redemption […]

An Autumn Prayer

So often I feel myself fighting against the force of nature around me…relationally and physically. I see the things I want to accomplish in life and I angst as the leaves change colors before my vision is realized.  I see the rows of corn being taken down by farmers before I have seen the relational […]
