The following post is from my pastor and friend, Pete Wilson. I am a huge fan of Pete, his family, and his words. Because well, he’s cool. But mostly because he helped me see that there was hope for me, that we all are broken and in need of healing, and that a church that is a place of authenticity and vulnerability is a beautiful restorative reminder that we are built for community. Enjoy and be sure check out his new book, Let...

Gosh, sorry I haven’t written since the big news. I meant to, but time has sort of escaped me. How have I been doing??? Well, I have been a tad overwhelmed.

I don’t know much about what this fall, next month, or even next week but I do know that I am going to “Be Present” at the Catalyst Conference in Atlanta this fall. It’s happening October 5-7 at the Gwinnett Arena and includes high-octane speakers, powerful worship, and an experience unlike any other. Truly, it’s unlike anything you have ever seen or done. Join me and learn from leadership authorities...

On Thursday evening I returned from almost a week at sea with a crew of dear friends, several dozen like-minded acquaintances scattered throughout North America, a rested body, mind, and spirit, and the inevitable sneaky pounds affixed to my mid-section (If only there was a “Gain It” app, I could have killed it on this trip.) Admittedly I left on the brink of burn-out. 2011 has me…reeling. And the Recreate Cruise, on...
