Solitude Before Community


“Why is it so important that solitude come before community? If we do not know we are the beloved sons and daughters of God, we’re going to expect someone in the community to make us feel that way. They cannot.” –Henri Nouwen  I’ve been blogging a short series about our inner life, discipleship, community, and ministry, inspired by Nouwen’s Spring …

Revive Refocus Retreat Review


Our Revive Refocus Retreat for Leaders yesterday was powerful. Our prayer team spent months praying for and planning this day and they did a great job leading it. Our numbers were lower than we had hoped for, but it wasn’t about numbers anyway. It was about what God would do when we made ourselves available to Him to work and …

It’s way too easy for a leader to fall into an “O, God …” attitude. O, God, these people aren’t really growing. O, God, why are …

A friend is someone I will make time for. If someone offers friendship to me, it’s a rare privilege, but if I do not make time to be with him, we are not friends. Moses understood this. “The Lord would speak to Moses face to face, as a man speaks to his friend.” – Exodus 33:11 This is the kind …
