So this past weekend I had the privilege to speak at Creekside for the morning services. You can download it if you would like to here. My text was Matthew 14.22-36. This is the Story of Jesus walking on the water. Pretty amazing story, and something that struck me about this was how weak andContinue reading “Awfully Small and Not as Strong as We think We Are”
Here are some great thoughts that I’ve picked out so far from this book. “When we look back on our lives, the parts that once seemed triumphant can pale in significance, while episodes that appeared trivial at the time now look crucial. Successes we see in hindsight, made us complacent,while our set backs pushed us.”Continue reading “Some Quotes from “Whoever Makes the Most Mistakes Wins”.”
So while I was at the library I took a little brain break and wondered around the shelves for a bit. And I found this book and decided I must read it. Whoever Makes the Most Mistakes Wins. What a great title. From what I gather it’s talking about innovation and taking risks. Which isContinue reading “Fresh from the Library”

I just listened to his message and it’sContinue reading “Guest Speaker -Brandon Cameron”

Sometimes I think the best thing to do is say nothing at all. Not just if you don’tContinue reading “Much To Write Just Not Much To Say”
This is an article that should be read by anyone in youth ministry So read it, ponder it, pray through it. Young adults aren’t sticking with church. I don’t want to be a sensationalist blogger, but I found this article and the study published by lifeway to be quite informative and challenging.
I was walking by a dry cleaner at three a.m., and it said “Sorry, we’re closed.” You don’t have to be sorry. It’s three a.m., and you’re a dry cleaner. It would be ridiculous for me to expect you to be open. I’m not gonna walk by at ten and say, “Hey, I walked byContinue reading “Mondays w/ Mitch”
