First things first

Have you heard what Brown University is asking applicants for the Class of 2017 as an essay prompt? French novelist Anatole France wrote: “An education isn’t how much you have committed to memory, or even how much you know. It’s being able to differentiate between what you do know and what you don’t.”…

Bucket list

Have you ever heard the phrase “bucket list?” It means the things you want to do before you before you “kick the bucket.” I recently read an article titled “The Before You’re Forty Bucketlist.”  It was a decent list, full of things both spiritual (read the bible) and temporal (watch every film on the AFI top 100 list). It got me thinking…

Unplug your family

My wife and I were in a restaurant having lunch the other day with one of our sons, and couldn’t help but notice a nearby family: a mom, dad, two boys, and a daughter. The daughter was middle school age, and clearly in contemporary middle school mode:  ear buds securely in place, staring off into space.  Every aspect of her demeanor made…

What does “Thy Kingdom Come” even mean?

The miracle of the happening

Few things get our attention as much as speed. We want the fastest computers, the fastest routes to work, the fastest ways to get rich, the fastest….well, everything. This is why the fastest growing churches often get attention, but the slow and steady often do not. Or immediate healings through prayer, as opposed to slower…

If churches shut down

People across the United States are finding out what it means for their life when the government shuts down.  From this, a new hashtag on Twitter has started: #IfIShutDown.  Dentists are tweeting empty dentist chairs, newspaper editors blank sheets of paper, and Moms and Dads messy kitchens and unsupervised children. But what…

The Theory of Desirable Difficulty

There are a handful of authors that I have been so consistently impressed by that I feel compelled to read whatever they produce.  In fiction, there’s C.J. Sansom.  In terms of business or leadership, there’s Jim Collins. And in a genre of writing hard to describe is Malcolm Gladwell.  His typical approach is to popularize research,…

Vacation time is Grandpa time

I remember when taking a vacation in the summer meant riding roller coasters, water skiing, binge watching movies every night, eating anything I wanted and doing it again the next day until Dad said it was time to leave and go home.
