Life is full of rhythms. The seasons, your heartbeat, having tummy trouble after a taco bell run and still going back the next time you crave it only to repeat the process again.

Some rhythms are unconscious and consistent. You don’t even think about breathing. You don’t tell your heart to…

Like many of you, I grew up in Churches of Christ. I knew what 728b was. I knew what a tract rack was (and used it as a resource as a child). I knew you weren’t supposed to clap. I knew who was going to heaven. We were and anyone else was suspect at best. I do not remember that last one being directly stated very often…

I really don’t think I am…

It is important we know our roots. I am not just talking about 33 AD or 1950. I am talking about a broader range of history. Where did we come from?

APRIL 2019 E-NEWS   Canoeing or Hiking? The Face of the Future for Church Leaders Last month, I offered some initial insights into the changing contexts of congregations in North America.
