Meaning accumulates in a many different ways. Sometimes we offer it in straight up narratives, sometimes through emotional abstractions and sometimes it washes over us in unexpected ways. Through a friend, a song, a story or a change in the way we do life.
“Change almost never fails because it’s too early. It almost always fails because it’s too late.” – Seth Godin
Lily Hope, our fourth g-baby was born to Mark & Jamie on April 12th. Yep, my eyes leaked when I heard the news that she was born. Of course, Ann was right there in the middle of the action. I get to see Lily in six days. I can’t wait!
After months of considering so many options and possibilities, I’m pretty excited to be working with some really fun and driven people who care deeply about unleashing generosity in the Church. They have offices in Auckland, New Zealand and Redmond, WA.
So, it just makes sense… we’re moving… not to Auckland, but to the PNW (Bellevue, WA). Don’t forget, we have three kids, three g-babies, two sisters & brothers-in-law, and some of their families in the Seattle area.
We are also planning a little bit of travel:
May 25-29 – Dallas (Foursquare Annual Convention)
June 6-9 – Baltimore (Southern Baptist Pastors’ Conference)
July 13-19 – Orlando (NACBA National Conference)
August 14-17 – NYC (Personal)
September – TBD (39th Anniversary)
September 30 – October 4 – Atlanta (Catalyst)
October 5 – 13 NYC (Joy & Angel’s Wedding)
More to come!
“…Jesus answered, “Time’s up. The time has come for the Son of Man to be glorified.Listen carefully: Unless a grain of wheat is buried in the ground, dead to the world, it is never any more than a grain of wheat. But if it is buried, it sprouts and reproduces itself many times over. In the same way, anyone who holds on to life just as it is destroys that life. But if you let it go, reckless in your love, you’ll have it forever, real and eternal.”
