Being Salt & Light

Bible-revival-outside-the-walls-barry-meguiarMy name is Selah.  It always has been … but recently, I’ve been learning to capitalize on it.  Here’s what I mean.

“Selah” is a term from Psalms that means “stop and meditate on the Lord.”  As a teenager, peers thought it was equally cool and weird to be named after that kind of thing.  As a pastor’s kid with this type of “branded” name, I tried to play down the Psalm reference—you know, so I could fit in.

That’s sad because being named after a biblical term ...

When Will Isn't Enough

Max-LucadoSeveral weeks ago, I fell prey to a nasty cold.  The first four days of the virus, I was in denial.  I went to work and church and ran errands, just like a normal week.

Then, on day #5, I finally admitted to being sick.  But I figured I could "out-will" the virus.  So I got ready for work like a regular Monday and stumbled into the office.  A few colleagues asked if I was feeling OK.  I told them "not really"but I was going to power through the day anyhow.  No need to worry about me!  I even ...

She's 35, Not a Christian, and Listening: Why?


On this past weekend's broadcast of "The Boundless Show", host Lisa Anderson read a remarkable letter from a regular listener.  Read it and consider the implications for yourself.  Then ponder this question: What would you hope an unbeliever (or, a "not-yet Christian") would say about the content you produce?

Dear Lisa & the Boundless Team,

I wanted to write you a note of thanks and encouragement from an unexpected listener, I think. 

I'm not a Christian and have no plans to be -- no offense, it's just not my jam.  But I really love your show.

Lisa, you are ...

Hope for Harmi: Great Need in Nepal

Nepal Hope for Harmi

A new Christian radio station in Nepal was destroyed in last month's earthquake. 

Reach Beyond has been working with local partners in Nepal since 2010.  It's a challenging part of the world to reach, but that doesn't deter the ministry who's name reflects their vision.  In fact, their "manifesto" speaks to their commitment to the unreached:

"We refuse to stand idly by as people enter eternity without Christ when we can share the Good News that transforms them through the media they use."

Read what's happening as a result of the earthquake, and the opportunity ...

A Lesson in Forgiveness

Mother and daughter"Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it."--Mark Twain


This past month I spent several hours in the emergency room with my dad-nothing too critical, mostly cautionary visits that lasted more than 4 hours.  As you can imagine, spending that much time in the ER can make any patient (and their family) anxious, irritable, and well, tired. 

During each visit, the ER medical technicians poked and prodded my dad, checked his vitals, took blood and x-rays, and asked numerous questions.  There were a few instances when the task became invasive and kindly ...
