If you're like me, you really don't want to admit your a boomer, or maybe you are embracing it! I'm at the tail end I must say, and God decided to give us a family a bit late in life, so I've got kids ages 7 & 10! Anyway, there are tons of positive sides to being a boomer. For many, you're empty nesters and have more time on your hands to give back through your local church and local community. We … [Read more...]

I believe I may have mentioned, after attending the Going Beyond event with Priscilla Shirer last June, that I became a fan of her worship leader, Anthony Evans. In fact, I know I mentioned it because I took a picture of Anthony for the Allaccess blog while I blurted out, "I promise I'm not a stalker!" which is a phrase that tends to make people nervous. In hindsight it would have been more … [Read more...]

Someone asked in the comments yesterday about the Jesse Tree, which made me very happy because I assumed I was the last person on the planet to adopt the tradition. A Jesse Tree is a way of celebrating the Advent season based on Isaiah 11:1-2: "A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a Branch will bear fruit. The Spirit of the LORD will rest on him-- the Spirit of wisdom and … [Read more...]
