new season

We've got change and transition on the horizon. We will be moving to Austin, Texas to join the staff of the Austin Stone Community Church. This is an exciting transition for us... more details to come later about all that it entails. I will still be blogging, although pretty spotty over the next few weeks.

As a family, we've really been going through a paradigm shift. We've really been wrestling through what it means to live in community, to be strategic neighbors, to simplify our lives for the sake of relationships, and to live in a way that subverts individualism, isolationism and consumerism that is so rampant in our Western culture. More on this as well... later...

Another shift that's happening personally... God has created me to be a passionate person. I get so fired up about Christ, theology, living missionally, anything having to do with redemption (hence the name of this blog - "exagorazo" - one of the New Testament Greek words for redemption...) God has just made me to be a passionate person about the big things in life. I feel like I am beginning to recover some of those passions, and am excited about how God will both channel those and align those with this next season of life. More on this later...

We would appreciate your prayers as we transition rather rapidly into this next phase of ministry...
