Church Planting and YOU
February 21, 2018
, , , , ,
Some of us here at Crossroads Church Aspen just returned from the official launch of one of our partner churches, Sandbox Church in Houston, Texas. It was such a joy to sit back and see so many “marketplace” people organizing, serving and leading. It was an amazing morning and an amazing gathering of people all […]
A Vision for Aging
November 8, 2017

Do you have a vision for aging? Maybe you are like most people and know that aging is inevitable, but don’t want to think about it. Some are in denial and even try to fight it. My hair started turning gray early. I am pretty much fully gray now at almost 54. I recently told […]

Globalization and Spiritual Warfare
July 31, 2017

Is globalization good? Well, yes and no. I am not going to deal with geo-politics in this blog necessarily, but the spiritual warfare reality behind globalization.

Our Approval Rating & Relationships
November 10, 2015
, , , ,
We all are aware of the changing approval ratings of all the presidential candidates, but how aware are we of our own approval ratings? Most of us are more driven by what we perceive people’s approval is than we could ever imagine. As long as we are driven by the approval of others we are […]

Making Space for LIFE
August 19, 2015
, , , , ,
I have noticed three major movements within the hearts of American Christians. First, in the beginning of our country we were still working through our new religious and political freedom and had high structure, integration into culture and a works based theology. This high structure developed into formalized denominational boundaries. So, what was critically important […]

Learning How to Pray and Worship
May 9, 2015
, , , ,
How did you learn how to pray? For some of us we learned how to pray from our parents as they prayed for us at bedtime and said the grace over the meal. Some of us grew up going to Sunday School and learned how to talk with God there. But for many of us, […]
