The Wayback Machine: August

Just because a post isn’t on the front page doesn’t mean it’s not important.  The “Wayback Machine” posts occur at the end of every month and reference the best posts of that month in years past.  My hope is to provide a good jumping on point for readers who have never been to Pursuing Glory.


Joel’s Birthday and the Outpouring of the Spirit

My son’s birth was a prophetic sign to us about the outpouring of the Spirit at the end of the age.  On my son’s one-year birthday I reflect on the significance of this promise in Scripture.

Stuff I’m Reading….Err…Listening To

I love to review books that I’ve read in order to point people to good material.  This is my review of Francis Chan’s groundbreaking book, Crazy Love.


The Baby Has Arrived

Appropriately, this is the blog announcement of the birth of Joel.  No prophetic significance mentioned here, just some insight into my thinking at the time of his birth.


Touched By An Angel

This post describes an encounter I had at the Midwest Prayer Center shortly before we began our house church.  A number of things happened during this month that were signs the Lord was leading us to start a house church.  This was foremost among them.

A Random Meeting with a House Church Planter and Another of My 50,000 Coaches

This post describes a sit-down I had with a house church planter in our area shortly before we started our house church.  What I love about this post, though, is the fleshing out of the 50,000 Coaches philosophy.  If you want to understand 50,000 coaches or you want to hear about some initial encouragement I received about viral house churches, check out this post.

Striving To Enter His Rest

This is probably the most convicting post of my own that I’ve read in some time.  It deals with the need to make God’s rest our priority, especially in the lives of leaders.
