Go. go. GO. No matter how you slice it, God asks us in Matthew 28:19 to go and make. Action is the core of the great commandment. Reflecting, visioning and planning all have an important place in our life, but it all comes down to execution. God does not want us sitting idly by waiting for the world to come to us. Rather we are to be a healthy mix of action and reflection.

I'm one of the pastors at First United Methodist Church in Lexington, Kentucky where I've served for the past twelve years. My wife Susan and I have three children: Madelyn, Marshall and Melisa. When we aren't attending a ballet or ballgame somewhere, you can find us...oh who am I kidding... this season of life always finds us at a ballgame (Marshall and Melisa) or a ballet (somewhat less now that Madelyn is living in Anapolis, MD.). The sub-title of this blog is "Grace is no accident" which happens to be the defining reality of my life. God's grace (gift) is the reason we have breathe in our lungs and hope in our hearts.
