It was perhaps one of the most unusual meetings recorded in the Gospels. Nicodemus was a “ruler of the Jews” and a member of the prestigious Sanhedrin. Yet despite his devout life and intense study of the Scriptures, the Pharisee knew something was missing. There had to be more. Nicodemus would certainly have been aware…

One of the major problems with Christians today is that they keep trying to be more committed. Don’t get me wrong. It is a good thing to want to be a stronger Christian. But the problem is that we often go about it in the wrong way. Let me give you an example. Susan is…

I finally succumbed. I am now tweeting. I had thought I should draw the line somewhere in the sand where technology had not yet made inroads into my life, but I finally gave in. If you’d like to receive my tweets on leadership and the Christian life, as well as know where I am speaking,…

Over the last decade or so, I go through the same ritual every year. I am a 1K flyer on United Airlines. That means I fly at least 100,000 miles on United Airlines and its partners every year. With that status, I get a few perks, like not paying to check my first three pieces…
