thankful Sunday, May 28, 2006 |

Kimberly, my wife, and I are so thankful for all the prayers and support we have received during this time. Kimberly is blogging about the passing of her mom, and the strong testimony of God's faithfulness that was displayed through her difficult battle with MS and cancer. Thanks so much for your concern, emails, phone calls, cards, letters and messages throughout the last couple of weeks.

From Chaos to Chorus Tuesday, May 09, 2006 |

Below is a video of a Stomp piece that I wrote a few years ago. The performance is by my friends at Newsong Church, an emerging, cutting-edge church with 3 campuses in the L.A. area and 1 campus in Bangkok. They are a talented group of dancers and musicians that I had the priviledge of working with last year. The title of the piece is "From Chaos to Chorus: How God takes our junk and makes it into music". It's in a simple A:B format that centers around a Christ-figure who unifies the chaos that has led to disintegration, and then leads them into making music with the very things that caused their chaos - their junk.

Ecuador, blogging, and updates Thursday, May 04, 2006 |

The trip to Ecuador was good. I think I got a nice case of the flu on the way back, so I'm just now coming out from under the weather. Got to meet with friends and partners there, and begin cast vision about a holistic approach to establishing church planting movements and community development. Looks to be a lot of opportunity. It's interesting to watch things progress in Ecuador. The emerging church looks much different than in the West, or even Africa or Asia for that matter. The Catholic heritage has it's upside and downside, the downside being the almost unnoticable slide towards dependency. Dependency on outside resources, manpower, ideas... That's a slippery slope that doesn't engender healthy movements.

MSNBC has a little article on the power of blogs and blogging. Nice little tip of the hat to the massive shifts that are happening in "news" these days.

Find out if your blog or website is really a Web 2.0 site with the Web 2.0 Validator. C'mon - aren't you curious to see how you match up?
