The Drug I Crave. Three Little Words.

I’ve talked to a lot of fallen ministers who are trying to live a life of repentance. There’s something we all need badly. But we rarely receive it. Three words that for some reason are hidden from view. People hide them in their hearts like they’re a gold piece in a falling economy. Or even when a broken pastor approaches… Read more »

Feel Like A Song Today – U2

It’s been a weird week. So, I felt like posting a song. Through the years, U2 has been the soundtrack of my life more than any other band. This song seems to identify the hidden heart of a lot of ministers. Enjoy. Especially the last verse. U2 – “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me” You don’t know how… Read more »

Divisiveness: Acts 2 & Ugly Carpet

I’m the next link in a “chain of blogs” on the issue of divisiveness. Boy, do I know divisiveness. I created it. Two years ago, I caused a church to hurt because as the pastor, I committed adultery. I created great harm and pain to many people, including my ex-wife, several deacons, an array of church members, family members, pastor… Read more »

A Message From The Past

Allison and I are in beautiful New Orleans enjoying a business/personal vacation that is well needed for us. It’s a good time of quiet and rest. It’s given me time to reflect on my book and the process of writing and my attitude over the past couple of years and hopefully how I’ve changed. My relationships with people have gotten… Read more »

Listen Closely On Father’s Day, There Might Be A Hero

Thought I’d get a jump on all the Fathers Day blogging. There’s a wide range of it. It goes from the sentimental: “Dad, you mean/meant so much to me. Remember when you took me fishin’ the first time?” To anger issues: “I hated my dad and he hated me.” To resolution: “My dad and I never got along, but the… Read more »

Surreal Moments & Full Circle Grace

Right now as I blog, Rachel, my ex-wife, my two children and my beautiful wife Allison are in the living room having a ball. I’m consigned to the bedroom with the door closed. And I’m loving it. On Friday and Saturday, respectively, I get to take Katie and Abigail to a father/daughter Purity Ball hosted by a local non-profit organization…. Read more »

Congressman Weiner and the Fallen Pastor

Let me get something straight first. I hate politics. Can’t stand them. I stopped watching the news about six years ago. I do keep track of current events and know what’s going on. That being said, I’m intrigued by the story and today, the confession of New York Congressman Andrew Weiner. I’m not going to recall the story here because… Read more »
