love, for the day is near

We’re finding that Herman has a debt that needs to be paid. A relatively small debt.

The commandments, “Do not commit adultery,” “Do not murder,” “Do not steal,” “Do not covet,” and whatever other commandment there may... Read The Rest →

3 things money can't fix

I had lunch with my friend Marc last week. He said something that has stuck with me…and I’m still thinking about it…he said there are 3 things money can’t fix, or can’t buy… Your marriage. You kids. And your significance. Then I came across an article in Relevant Magazine – titled The Life Not Worth Living, by Jim Palmer. In the article, Palmer talks about the whole idea of significance in the Christian life, the abundant life in Christ – and where true contentment is found. He hits on the... Read The Rest →

bigish small news – what can 1 dollar really do?

Like in chess – sometimes you need to start playing the game and figure out the moves along the way – are you in? Ben and I just started a virtual experiment, right here. Often, experiments fail. Experiments are risky. Experiments push boundaries. Many times, experiments raise more questions than they answer. But in the end, something new is discovered. It’s important to say right up front that we’re not setting out to solve any specific problem – but we do hope to discover something new – and maybe bring... Read The Rest →
