I may have to turn in my “Liberal card” soon…

I consider myself a moderate, politically, but siding more on the liberal side than the conservative. But, the more I get into discussions with ultra-liberal folks, the more I start feeling like an idiot. A brief Facebook discussion ensued this evening on the issue of Florida requiring drug tests of welfare recipients. To me, this […]

What’s Going on in my life

Interesting things, praise God! (1) I’ve started a podcast called worship wednesday at worshipwednesday.com, where I interview an independent worship artist every Wednesday. I’ve already done 5 podcasts, interviewing artists from as far away as South Korea. (2) I’m still working on my next worship CD, and I am very excited about it. It will […]

“How can you guys stand watching TV anymore? The last reality TV show I watched about made me wanna blow my brains out! It seems like everything on air has debased itself to the level of MTV. You can’t even watch the History channel anymore without being lied to constantly. ugh”

Hitting the Humility Reset Button Every Now And Then

So, here we were in this musical disaster (the joyfullest NOISE you ever heard) about a minute in when (and I know you worship leaders out there already know what happened) I discovered that in all the frantic scrambling, I forgot to take the capo off.

I was playing in B. Everybody else was playing A.

So, the singers were all singing in B, while the rest of the band was frantically trying to make out what I was doing.

Our son turned three in a blink of an eye

Our son turned three in a blink of an eye

On the morning of January 8, 2007, my wife and I drove to an adoption agency. We left that agency with this young man in the backseat.

In May, 2005, Rob was a secular, Jewish, thirty-something, Los Angeles, personal injury attorney whose idea of getting up early on a Sunday was getting up for the third quarter of the first televised, NFL games.

Thirsting on the idea of playing in a band for the first time in a decade, Rob finally accepted his neighbor's request to get up at seven-in-the-morning on Sundays in order to participate.

Eleven months later, his world was turned upside down by Jesus. Instantly, he began leading songs on the worship team and, today, he now leads that same LIFEhouse worship team in which he was initially invited to join as a non-believer.

God is cool like that.
