Sunday Night

I just updated Kim’s blog with a phone interview:  Check that out

Today was awesome.  A totally new reflection on what it means to “worship in spirit and in truth”.  As keyed in as I am to worship, that phrase has always been a little vague for me.  What does it mean?  It means to sing it like you mean it and if you don’t mean it, don’t sing it.  Either you believe it with all that is in you…you are totally revved up about it, or just don’t do it.  Man!  What a difference that mindset made in our worship tonight.  I felt like I was on the receiving end, being ministered to in worship.  It was great.  Someone on the team said, “for the first time in this building, I heard the body singing above Brian, and that was SO AWESOME.” 

These guys in our church bands could use their gifts in so many different ways…I think it is awesome when they get some indication that the gifts they are giving mean something.  They could be in crowds with people drinking, hooping and hollering at a bar, yet they choose to serve us. 

That feedback…it isn’t “for them”, but it is important.

A lot of personal reflection this weekend…revival does that to me.  Change of leaves…change of seasons, change in priorities.  New lists.  

Well, my Sunday night laundry awaits.  Much like many of you.  Short on jeans for every child in the house.

    Yay God! Me, too!! I love when the LORd comes and does a new work and revives our spirits.

    Love and prayers to you friend,

    PS I also like to think about “truth to the inmost part,” so “in spirit and in truth” would include that…worship to our very core…everything turned up before Him. No bars held. I want that!

Sifting the joy from the mundane:

recording, photographing, learning, creating.

I am married to the love of my life, as we raise three children, learning the ways of grace.


Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)



"We shall not waste our time in looking for extraordinary experiences in our life, but live by pure faith, ever watchful and ready for His coming by doing our day-to-day duties with extraordinary love and devotion." ~Mother Teresa



"Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not come. We have only today. Let us begin." ~Mother Teresa




A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in it's vicinity freshen into smiles. --Washington Irving




When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. -Harriet Beecher Stowe
