I’ll be honest with you. I’m not writing this for you. I hope that maybe you can get something out of it, but what helps me is to write. I’m a pastor, and part of what I do is write….a lot. Writing helps me think through ideas, and get stuff out of my head and onto something I can actually see. I put all of this up on a blog because I think its important to share ideas and thoughts, and provide a place where we can work through lots of things together. So that means if you have comments, please make them!!! I’m always up for a good discussion.
I call this Stories from the Other Side because I think about things differently than most folks. What I hope you find are things that challenge your thinking, and things that you can challenge my thinking with. You’ll see a lot of devotions, or things I call devotions, which are part of what I do for my churches, but they are also devotions for me as they help me work things out.
Most of the time my devotions are a written version of the sermon I gave that week. I try to take an idea or theme from that sermon and put it out here. Sometimes it works better than other times.
In the future I’ll probably have some of the other things that I’ve done posted up here as well, but it’ll take me a while to get them up. I hope you enjoy them, and maybe even learn something.
