This morning we were introduced to our new Executive Director. He comes from Louisiana, where he has served on their state convention staff as a communications director. It all seems anti-climactic to me, since i will probably only be with this ... Read more

It seemed kind of strange, knowing that my time at Open Door as their interim pastor is coming to an end. Next Sunday will be my last day with these folks. The good news for the church is that there are in the process of interviewing a young pas... Read more

This morning's run was a challenge to get started. The bed felt warm and cozy at 5:30 a.m. when the alarm went off. However, after a few seconds of laying there, I realized that it was time to get up, and get ready to hit the pavement. My wife e... Read more

After an enjoyable time of worship at Church this morning, our family grabbed some lunch and headed for home. It's hard to believe how beautiful the weather is today. We're enjoying temps in the 70's F, and no rain in sight for a few days. ... Read more
