Questions of God

I was recently reading the story of Elijah and came upon his journey to Mt.  Horeb. He was running from Jezebel when God says to him “Elijah, why are you here?”  It caused me think of all the others that God asked questions of: to Adam, “Where are you?” “Who told you you were naked?” and “Have you eaten of the tree?”  To Cain after he had killed his brother, he asked him “Where is your brother?”  To Jacob, he asked him “What is your name?”  To Sarah when she was told in her old age that she would have a son and she laughed, he asked her “Why did you laugh?”  To Moses when he was standing before the red sea “Why are you crying to me?” Continue reading

Mountains of Risk

Several years ago, someone mentioned to me that I should start blogging as a way to communicate.  I had no frame of reference for doing such a thing except journaling, which I considered to be private and definitely not on the Internet for all to read.  Now…this generation puts it all out there and is bringing my generation along for the ride.  My house community is very much into blogging.  Most of them have their own individual blogs in which they share their interests, their passions and dreams.  They use it to challenge, convict and encourage their followers.  Now they have requested that I be apart of our community blogs..  I wonder how many times I will rewrite, rethink, reprocess what I blog.  They seem to do it so easily…me…not so much.  So bear with me as I try…=) Continue reading

But, It’s Not My Passion…

It’s a phrase we hear all around us.  We hear it at work.  We hear it in homes.  We hear it at church.  We hear it in schools.  If it doesn’t make me feel good, or fulfill me in some way, it’s not worth doing well.  This isn’t about things being hard or easy, it’s about feelings. Continue reading

…Life Together

I was going to write about how amazing my housemates are, about how “life together” with them is such a blessing and such a great example of what, i believe, God has always intended for us, as human beings, to experience.  I was going to write something witty and clever, something feel-good and heart-warming… but all i can think about is the video i just got done watching.  It was about Liberia.  Continue reading

One of the Seven Deadlies

Sloth weighs a man down
Better than a hundred stones
It only lowers.
Sloth: noun, habitual disinclination to exertion; indolence; laziness.

Hi! My name is Logan. I am lazy. I have a habitual tendency towards avoiding or putting off work. Probably not the blog intro you were expecting, but, regardless, it is fact. So, that being said, how is this related to Jesus or the Bible in any way? Well, keep your pants on and I’ll tell you! Sheesh.

A Holy Spirit Story

Well here goes my first weblog or blog as it’s commonly known.  I had to Google it to find that out.  What can I write that anyone wants to read?  I’m a speaker not a writer.  Give me a crowd of people and whether I’m prepared or not I generally can think of something to say.  I’m a storyteller.  So maybe I should just tell a story.
