Participatory Church

My journey from traditional “church”, and some of what I’ve learned about being the church — the exciting, enticing and enthralling multi-faceted Body of Christ!

The Lost Art of Dialogue

Our whole paradigm for “doing church” needs to fundamentally shift from monologues delivered from detached podiums that safely isolate our leaders from effective fellowship.

The Gift of Mercy

Mercy is the most powerful, but most abused, of all the spiritual gifts. Those with the gift of mercy are vital for what God wants to do in our age with an emerging new spiritual generation.

Gifts, Calling and Validation

Like many, I found my validation in my gifts and abilities. If we understand the different spiritual gifts listed in Romans 12 — and find the one that corresponds to our personality — then we can instead begin to find our validation in pleasing the Father.

The Growing Idolatry of Civil Government

Too many Christians want to use the power of civil government to infringe on the God-ordained but different jurisdictions of self government, the family, the church and voluntary associations.

New Covenant Fellowship? Beware!

This post chronicles the decline and ongoing death thralls of a once great church, and documents what happens when a charming but otherwise abusive leader grabs power, robs the people and leads a church into cult practices and doctrines.

Understanding Chronic Fatigue

As I struggle with an autoimmune condition called systemic sclerosis, I have begun to understand chronic fatigue and how to cope with its effects.

Sufficient Grace

When did we start believing that Christians are entitled to health, wealth and success? For me, I’ve found instead the wonder of God’s sufficient grace.

God Shows Up

As I’ve counseled hundreds of people of the years, I’ve learned that God miraculously heals us when we’re willing to go to and expose to Him those places at the core of our being where wounds, hurts and lies reside.

Evangelical Prophets or Martyrs?

Why do those “on point” for the Kingdom of God increasingly seek refuge from the prevailing pop-theology (or dare I say lack of theology) and me-focused brand of Christianity that animates many of our church leaders and cuts believers off from the great historic doctrines and creeds of our faith?

Essentially Reformed or Hyper-Calvinist?

Why is it that those who most strongly affirm God’s sovereignty do so in a way that denies His ability — His right, if He so pleases — to delegate choice to us?
