Here in 2010, people and corporations spend billions to communicate about their brands, products and services. The social media are buzzing every moment. There's more information bombarding us across more platforms today than ever before in human history. So the last thing we have to worry about is a "failure to communicate."

Winter Olympics Anyone?

Robert and some future OlympiansMy wife called me four weeks ago and asked me “Will you do something crazy with me?” Now that’s an “open ended” question if I ever heard one.  After 15 years of marriage, I’ve learned the appropriate response is “Anything, for you my love.”

 

She wanted me to take her to the Olympics in February.  Keep in mind this is weeks away from the opening ceremonies. I rolled my eyes.  It’s a good thing you can’t see eye-rolls over the phone.  She had found online some incredible airfares ($150 round trip to Vancouver).

1. Know Why You're Attending

For most of us, NRB is an opportunity to connect with partners in ministry-it's the one time every year we can meet face-to-face to review and strategize about ministry work for the year ahead, but more importantly, it's a time to ...

"Why, Lord?"

It’s hard not to ask, “Why, Lord?” in the aftermath of the horrific tragedy in Haiti.Haiti Picture

 

While this side of heaven, we may never know the answer to this question, it really doesn’t matter.  God is in control.  He does have a perfect plan for each of us, even in the midst of heartache and disaster.

 

As I watched the news broadcasts of the earthquake, I was so touched that despite all the devastation, there were many arms upraised to God, thanking Him for saving them, begging Him to save their loved ones.  They sought God.
