The four most powerful words in the New Testament as far as I am concerned. Resurrection is the difference between the Church and the Rotary club. Think about it, both have speakers, both do good things for people, both filled with nice people, truly the difference is about the power available because of whom we serve. Because Jesus is alive we have hope, life, and a future. May we live today with that hope exuding from every pour in our body.

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 breath in our lungs and hope in our hearts.
