That One Kid

As I’ve probably mentioned, I had the fine opportunity of going to the CentriKid children’s camp this summer at Southwest Baptist University. On the first day, one of the boys--I’ll call him JD--a young man who had absolutely driven me nuts for a year on Sunday mornings, walked up to me.

Be the Connection

You can be the connection in someone's life! In fact, it's really simple: Wear your What's the Point? t-shirt every Saturday in September to let people know you can help connect them to Jesus, others, and God's purpose for their lives!

Rest While Harvey Rages

Hurricane Harvey has made landfall in Texas and will be churning inland over the next couple of days, losing strength as it cannot pick up unlimited water from the Gulf of Mexico but still creating a lot of havoc.

You Can't Do Everything

The Faith of Forty-Two

What is the significance of April 15? If you think of taxes and the IRS when you see that date, I understand, but there’s something historical that’s worth noting here.

Relax Under Pressure

I can’t imagine the kind of pressure the disciples felt when they realized they had a crowd of hungry people in front of them needing to be fed. I feel enough pressure when I have to feed my three kids with a fully-stocked pantry when Carrie is out. I wouldn’t know what to do with thousands of mouths to feed and no Chick-fil-A in sight.

The Magic of Micro

If you’re like me, you are no big deal. But God can work through the small acts of middling people to do amazing things. But it takes a willingness to trust that a microaffection can become something greater in the hands of someone greater.
