A Vineyard Church plant in Florence, Alabama.

May 25, 2019

I took a walk around town this morning; no real destination; just a desire to hear God and to pray for our church plant and for Florence. 

To be honest, I was whining.  I was complaining to God that we haven't seen more fruit, that we haven't made bigger strides, that I...

Our St. Patrick's Day weekend music shindigs were a huge success. We nixed the giant dining room table and set up a full sound system in its place so we could host a house concert - it was better than we could have ever hoped! The best part: we met a handful of new peo...

I was frustrated. Cue impatient foot-tapping and thumb-twiddling and watch-checking. Impatient; restless; waiting.

What am I waiting for? Where to start… I’m waiting for word from the publisher about publishing my book. We’re waiting for a piece of land to sell. We’re w...

Sometimes the church-plant things we do in the community are wonderful and weird at the same time.
