Missional Challenge # 2

Posted by Dave Clayton on

Happy Saturday morning. Whatever is on your agenda today I hope it involves rest, being with people you love, and spending time with God. Make sure you spend your day doing things that matter. Today is the second day of our Missional Challenge. I probably won't provide a challenge for you...

Missional Challenge #1

Posted by Dave Clayton on

I've been thinking a lot recently about just how difficult it is to live a life that is missional. For those of you reading that don't read a lot of books about church (trust me you shouldn't feel guilty if that is the case), the term missional simply refers to a way of life that revolves...

Wednesday

Posted by Dave Clayton on

Have you ever read a verse, one that you have read a million times and all of a sudden you see it from a completely different perspective? I feel like that happens a lot with me. I don't know if it is because I'm not real bright--maybe it takes me reading the same thing a lot of times before I...

This Samaritan Life

Posted by Dave Clayton on

I read a really intriguing article by Tim Stafford. I am going to post a few excerpts of it on this blog. Hopefully it will help us think through what it looks like to be followers of Jesus in a city where "being Christian" is more often a category on your facebook page than a way of life. Denis...

Turkey Hangover

Posted by Dave Clayton on

Welcome back. I hope you feel refreshed and well rested after a few days of vacation. Sydney and I really enjoyed spending time with family, eating turkey, watching football, and just being mindless. It was really nice to actually relax for a few days. It sure is hard to get going again after...

Siesta

Hey guys, I won't be posting for a couple of days, and hopefully you won't be on your computers much either. Make sure you take the next few days to slow down, get away from email, hang out with family, catch up with old friends, and just soak in the holidays. I hope you eat lots of turkey, fall...

Under Age

Posted by Dave Clayton on

When is it that we become adults? I know the legal answer is 18. But come on, I don't think any of us are really under the allusion that we were adults on our 18th birthday. Maybe we could buy cigarettes, vote, and join the army, but at the end of the day we all knew we weren't actual...

Thanksgiving Warmup

Posted by Dave Clayton on

I stumbled across this challenge and thought I would post it here. In honor of Thanksgiving, I thought it would be fun if we tried this. 1.    Pick someone in your life (the first person who comes to mind is probably the correct choice) who has blessed...

Six Minute Abs

Posted by Dave Clayton on

It is so cold outside. Syd is making soup and grilled cheese for dinner. I'm pumped :).  Anyways, I was thinking today about this friend I had in college who bought one of those ridiculous ab machines. You know the kind...it is the belt that supposedly vibrates your gut into a rock...

1 Timothy 1:15-16

Posted by Dave Clayton on

A handful of my friends and I will be reading through 1 Timothy together over the course of the next week. Feel free to join us. I would imagine that most of the things I will write about on here will come from that.  Yesterday as I was reading through 1 Timothy, a verse really...
