Writer, Church leader, Eccentric Nut, Marketer

I'm Church Leader, Writer, Speaker, Marketer, Kindness Project Founder, Broadcaster and Superhero. But most important I'm a Husband, Father and a worshiper of Jesus.

The answer to the question...

... may not be as easy as saying "Jesus" and ending the discussion there.

But from here until the end, it all comes back to this:

Colossians 1:26-29

This mystery has been kept in the dark for a long time, but now it's out in the open. God wanted everyone, not just Jews, to know this rich and glorious secret inside and out, regardless of their background, regardless of their religious standing. The mystery in a nutshell is just this: Christ is in you, so therefore you can look forward to sharing in God's glory. It's that simple. That is the substance of our Message. We preach Christ, warning people not to add to the Message. We teach in a spirit of profound common sense so that we can bring each person to maturity. To be mature is to be basic. Christ! No more, no less. That's what I'm working so hard at day after day, year after year, doing my best with the energy God so generously gives me.

aka: "Christ in me... the hope of Glory"

From Pete Greig's, "The Vision"

"This is an army that would lay down it's life for the cause
A million times a day its soldiers choose to lose,
That they might one day win
the great well done of faithfull sons and daughters

Such heros are as radical on monday morning as on Sunday night
They don't need fame from names
Instead the grin quietly upwards"

The beginning component for change... is Prayer. I'm unapologetic in saying this.

Whatever you believe about prayer... it's value... it's power... it's style... I'd love to have you join us at Freedom House for Prayer. This Thursday night from 7-9.

Even if you're skeptical about God and his existence. It couldn't matter less. You're extremely welcome to open up a dialog between you and God.

If he's not there... nothing lost.
If he is... then you've found something stunning.

We'll be just... simply... praying for whatever THE SOURCE of life wants. It's quite a marvelous experience to talk to God and let Him talk back. If you've never tried it... it's not a job for professionals. There is not a correct style. And we can express ourselves in the language we understand.

Check out the Freedom House Prayer Blog (here) for details.
