Who Was Barrabbus?

During the Easter season last year (2015) while watching “The Passion” movie, one of the characters caught my attention. For those of you who are familiar with the passages that we read each Easter you know the name, Barrabbus. Barrabbus pops up in the middle of the story and then is gone again. In all…

Do You Know Who You Are? Do You Know the One Who Does?

We’ve all seen it. A person of influence is being treated like a nobody and what do they ask: “Do you know who I am”? This question carries with it a presumption that if the person knew who they were dealing with they would treat them differently. Many times this comes from a place of pride…

Salt and Light

The whole month of November, leading up to Thanksgiving, my social media news feeds have been full of what my friends are thankful for. Last week as Nick, the girls and I were preparing a Thanksgiving meal that we would share with our Dominican family I thought about all the things that I had to be thankful…

Things That Please the Spirit

Trip Photos

I have been meaning to post pictures from our most recent Dominican Republic trip for some time and have finally gotten around to it. I apologize for the delay and hope you enjoy the visuals. One of our first stops was to a community called La Yaguita de Pastor. This is a poverty stricken suburb…

Ok God, You Have My Attention

On a not so common Saturday night Connie and I touched down, along with two very good friends (Kip and Kristi), at the Santiago International airport in the Dominican Republic. It was the 3rd such occasion for me and the first for Connie. Although this was not my first trip to the Dominican, it would…
