Imagine…Easter Going Viral

We all know Easter is about sacrifice. A few years ago, I set out to capture the sacrifice of Easter in a film. After three months, “Bullseye” was born. My church, Perimeter Church in Atlanta, used this film in their 2013 Easter service and received a wonderful response. I was pleased with the feedback, but...

Equipping for Consistency — Slaying the Dragons of Attendance and Giving

How do you get them to come? How do you get them to give? I regularly talk to pastors who are struggling with those two big questions. The church is competing with so many distracting voices for the attention of its members, and in many congregations, stewardship is a bad word. It can make people...

New Beginnings — Casting a Church-Wide Vision

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. God actually spoke Creation into existence—that’s the power of God’s Word! Don’t you wish your word had that much power?

God Owns It All

Think about this statement for a moment: God, the Maker of Heaven and earth, and the giver of all good and perfect gifts, “owns” everything. Is this really what God is after? God goes through every effort to tell us that we are no longer servants but friends. He then escalates that to say those...

Hard Wired for Giving

I was struck by a Wall Street Journal article that explains recent neuroscientist and NIH studies, which investigate where empathy and generosity originate in the brain. Dr. Grafman and his colleague, Jorge Moll, were referenced in the article. Grafman is at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago and is director of brain injury research. They found...
