Core Values & “We will miss you.”

I hurt my back a year ago and have learned so much since then. I’ve learned what it’s like to live with chronic pain. I’ve learned that pain killers are good…and that pain killers are bad. While on pain killers, apparently, I felt compelled to tell Matt Estrin that I loved him…constantly. There’s an entire […]

Why Fishing is Not a Waste of Time

I’ve always enjoyed fishing.  Some of my favorite childhood memories are of fishing with my Dad, my Grandpa Chambers, and my Uncle Don Lewis. You can learn a lot of important life-lessons with a fishing pole or net in your hand. I was reminded of that while studying for a sermon on Peter. When Jesus […]

He loves to fly…and it shows.

  I’m on a flight to Nashville that is full of pilots. They’re all heading to a “Women in Aviation” conference, which is interesting because this post is about a guy pilot in seat 17A. When we sat down, and I asked about “all the pilots on board,” he told me that he’s heading to […]

20 Insights on Hospital Visitation from Room B480

As I write this, I’m sitting uncomfortably in a hospital bed, wearing a drafty gown, paper undies, and socks that inflate and deflate periodically to keep my legs stimulated.

Playing Well With Others

The Guilty Leader

Andy Stanley shared this list in a message entitled, The Guilty Leader.  I think it’s worth sharing here as well. The guilty leader…. Finds it difficult to trust others because he is untrustworthy.  We tend to reflect on others what is true of us. Micromanages because–since he has a secret–he assumes everyone else does too. […]

Leadership Lessons from Leviticus

This morning, in my quiet time, I started reading Leviticus. Reading Leviticus is a faith building experience…in more ways than one. I read about burnt, grain, and fellowship offerings this morning and was struck by something I knew but had forgotten: Sacrificing is a messy process. During my devotions I stopped and went online to […]

4 Questions Tiger Woods Should Have Asked

All-time winningest NCAA basketball coach Don Meyer hands a card out to his team with four questions they should ask themselves when faced with temptation.  Tiger would have done well to ask himself these 4 questions.  I also think these are good questions for Christian leaders to ask as well when faced with temptation. Stop […]

I’m getting some great responses from this series of leadership lessons from Ernest Shackleton.  I find this particular list especially helpful in ministry.
