Reconnect One: Game On

January 10, 2018

I remember when college football wrapped up on January 1. But now the process is extended into the second week of the new year. It is now officially a bowl season. Many conversations could be had about priorities and idolatry. But any time we’re talking about college, we should be talking about higher education which, […]

Conversations with Carmen: Featuring Dr. Allan Sawyer

January 9, 2018

Doctors often turn out to be wrong when they are predicting the potential future fullness of an unborn life based on lab results and assumptions. Had one couple followed a physician’s advice to terminate, we wouldn’t have with us today Dr. Allan Sawyer, an obstetrician-gynecologist affiliated with the Banner Thunderbird Medical Center who was responsible […]

Reconnect One: Epiphany

January 5, 2018

As we approach the end of the 12 days of Christmas, we prepare to celebrate Epiphany. Epiphany is one of those theological words that’s been culturally co-opted and disconnected from its original power. People use the word epiphany to describe all kinds of ideas and personal experiences. But historically, epiphany is the celebration of the […]

Reconnect One: Begin Again

January 1, 2018

Happy New Year! The day we all get to begin again – again! From turning the page on the calendar to closing the books on the year now passing, this is a time of beginning again. If anyone is in Christ, there is the eternal offer to begin again: The offer of a clean slate, […]

Reconnect One: Wise Men

December 20, 2017

You’ve heard that after Jesus was born wise men came from the East to honor Him. You’ve heard they gave Him gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. You’ve heard that there were three of them. But what if I told you the wise men would have arrived in Herod’s courts in Jerusalem as a small […]

Reconnect One: Ugly Christmas Sweater

December 12, 2017

How fun are ugly Christmas sweaters? The more ridiculous, outdated and goofy, the better. We’ve even created entire parties around them. We get a lot of laughter and joy from putting on our Christmas sweaters each year— even if they are falling apart and truly, ridiculously ugly. This year, when you pull yours out of […]

Reconnect One: Advent

December 5, 2017

O come, O come Emmanuel. And ransom captive Israel, That mourns in lonely exile here. Until the Son of God appears. This is a favorite Advent hymn because it focuses our hearts on the reason for the season. For the Christian, the weeks leading up to Christmas are preparation for the arrival of someone much […]

Reconnect One: Soli Deo Gloria, all glory to God alone

November 30, 2017

Reconnect One, with Carmen LaBerge: There is nowhere that God is not and there is nothing over which God does not say, “Mine.”  This doesn’t make God greedy— it makes Him glorious! Soli Deo Gloria recognizes God’s supremacy over all things, for all time. The reality of who God is, when rightfully acknowledged as sovereign […]

Reconnect One: What makes Good Friday good and Black Friday black?

November 24, 2017

Reconnect One, with Carmen LaBerge: “What makes Good Friday good and Black Friday black?” Popped the question from the 10-year-old in the back seat. Reaching back to my B-school course in retail marketing I answered, “Well, on Black Friday, retailers try to pull out of the red of debt and get into the black, turning […]

Reconnect One: Counting our blessings looks different for the Christian

November 20, 2017

Reconnect One, with Carmen LaBerge: What are you thankful for? I’m sure you will be asked this question this month. Counting blessings looks different for the Christian. Imagine a Thanksgiving where we can declare, because I am blessed by God’s grace to be counted among His children, I can be thankful in poverty, in frailty […]
