#ReimaginePRAYER: Grow. Together.

Received this emessage from an international prayer champion:

"Thanking God for you and your leadership in prayer. I think it was at a prayer conference when you were leading a time of prayer and offhandedly mentioned how you prefer praying with others rather than alone. (I don't remember the exact wording!) God used that comment to expand my understanding of what it means to grow in…

From Veteran Prayer Leader, Eddie Smith . . .

August 2020
 

I (Eddie) don’t like failure. Who does? Perhaps like me, you have had your share of failed attempts. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if God would give us a task, clearly laying out the steps to accomplish it, provide everything we need to complete it, and guarantee our success, where we…

Pro-Life-For-Life

#ItSeensToMe...if we evangelicals were pro-life-for-life, we would look for ways to empower/equip those who choose abortion for primarily economic reasons.

#ProLife has to be more than a preaching point or a taking a political stand.

Consider the commentary of friend/colleague John H. Armstrong:

Abortion rates in America continue to…

#Reimagine...systemic procedures

#ItSeemsToMe...

WANTED: leaders with courage to #ReimagineCHURCH... because the world we share good news with is rethinking basic systems. Agree or disagree, the call to defund police is a sign we need systemic change. Church, hold truth but review/revise models/methods.…

#ItSeemsToMe…We May Talk Too Much When We Pray. Or Not Enough.

#ItSeemsToMe…We May Talk Too Much When We Pray. Or Not Enough.

As I was preparing for a week-long trip out of town, I peeked ahead on the daily cartoon calendar we have in our kitchen. On the back of each day’s cartoon is a riddle or a trivia item, and this is what grabbed my…

Stop. Light. Prayer.

Our youngest daughter and her husband moved to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina a bunch of years ago and settled in the Carolina Forest area–a huge section of dozens of new developments and golf courses. City fathers…

The Heroes and Villains of Christmas

Heroes and Villains of Christmas

I confess, I’m a huge Beach Boys fan. Love their surf, sand, and streets songs. But alongside Little Deuce Coupe, Little Saint Nick has become a Christmastime favorite.

Politicized Prayers. Don't Bother.

#ItSeemsToMe... it is way too easy for Christians to unintentionally offer prayers that are actually more Republican than righteous; sound more like a Democrat than a disciple. When our political preferences infect our intercessory petitions, we have shifted from empowering the Spirit to employing the Spirit. No one of us is immune from this politicized syncretism.…

Spring 2001 TEDS Bridge magazine

 

I think five or six of us showed up that June 1990.

 

We placed our chairs in a small circle and introduced ourselves: “Hi, I’m Al from Palatine…I’m Joe from Arlington Heights…John from Lake Zurich…Gary from Schaumburg.” They had come to my office…

"I Can't Breathe!"

From our colleague at InterVarsity Press

My head is still a bit foggy from the weekend, with news, tweets and headlines ranging from peaceful protests and constructive dialogue to others of rioting, violence and deep misunderstanding. Even our little city in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, ran the emotional gamut yesterday with a…
