Needing a Reset … Get Back In Sync

It was a dark and stormy night. The thunder and lightning went pop. And the power was gone. So the story began. But the point is what took place after the storm. And with that, most of the clocks were out of power and thus reset to midnight. Newer ones fixed themselves once power was … Continue reading Needing a Reset … Get Back In Sync

A Story in Song … That Spans Eternity

Worship Wars ... this is a phenomenon that will not be settled this generation, nor any coming generation.

There are songs that just stick in there. (Like the military cadence to Baby Shark ... ugh). They ramble around and I … Continue reading The Song that is Stuck in My Head

Pink Floyd … Time (Our Story as Experienced Through Music)

It's a bit different. You don't normally have your pastor tell you to listen to Pink Floyd in preparing for Bible studies. But that's how I roll. Every one of us has a story, a life journey that is filled with questions, drama, soul searching, relationships, and a search for something bigger, something beyond ourselves. … Continue reading Pink Floyd … Time (Our Story as Experienced Through Music)
