Our Readers Are So Amazing

Sara and I arrived in Ohio yesterday in what seems to be an incredibly providential sense of timing. For the last week, Sara has had a new emerging memory about a harrowing childhood incident, and its unfolding climaxed on her birthday last Thursday.   We think this may prove to be a tremendous gift from…

Finding God's Rhythm in the Darkness

It's finally out! I read this book over a year ago to Sara on one of our driving trips to Denver to be with our son. It's the second part of the three-part Velieri Uprising, a series of books that take on big themes like identity, spiritual warfare, and human conflict in a fictional... Read More

The Gift of Sight in the Valley of Pain

Two nights ago, I sat among giants. Five people, each of them, had come face-to-face with a conflict between their consciences and the system of power that held the keys to their salary and advancement. And they each chose to follow their nudging consciences growing deep within them. For three of them, it was... Read More

Can You Help Us Yet Again?

Sara and I have come vertically through Michigan and landed close to Benton Harbor in the southwest. God has seemingly opened a wide door here with lots of connections I tried to get to a few months ago, before our Unforeseen Circumstances. And new doors open every time I check my email. It's going... Read More

The Jake Colsen Book Club - Chapter 6

The next meeting of the Jake Colsen Book Club has been set. For those interested, we work through So You Don't Want to Go to Church Anymore chapter by chapter in a series of Zoom sessions where you can share your insights or ask questions.  You don't have to have been to a previous... Read More

Moving On

This week we will be working our way through Michigan. That's the team up top on an early morning walk to the Peninsula Lighthouse near Rapid River. It's been glorious here with the people we've spent time with and some new folks we met. Also, Sara and I were the only ones in the... Read More

When Something Horrible Comes Your Way

Over the past sixteen days, we have traveled almost 2908 miles from Thousand Oaks, CA, to Duluth, MN, and we are having a wonderful trip. We've moved from 100 degree days in Wyoming and Denver, to waking up to a 40 degree morning. Sara and I are having the most wonderful conversations with each... Read More

On to the Upper Midwest

Today we finished up in Colorado and are heading up north to Wyoming to spend some time with my podcast co-host Kyle Rice and his family in Torrington, WI.  We've had a number of options from there but what has most settled in our hearts is a wide open door in Duluth, MN and... Read More

Recapturing Innocence

We know that Sara had her innocence stolen at four years old. Instead of growing up with the heart of a playful child, she lived guarded, navigating the terrors of the trauma she didn't understand. Instead of a carefree childhood, she learned to survive, especially when criticized. Retreats have not been one of Sara's... Read More

Glad That's Over!

What a crazy weekend! We packed up 47 years of married life and had to find a place for those things in an 1100 square foot apartment, a 330 sq ft motor home, and even after we gave loads of stuff away we still needed to rent some storage bays. Thanks to the help... Read More

Thank You, from Forkland in Kenya

Let me offer my thanks and gratitude of our friends in Kenya for the recent rescue of three hundred abandoned children in the community of Forkland. We have supported a school there for over a decade because it provides education for students whose parents cannot afford it. Earlier this year, during a deep drought,... Read More

Love With a Hook

John happens upon Jake while he is fishing on the shore of Nellie Lake, eight thousand feet up in the Sierra Mountains and a five-mile hike from the nearest road. Here's a snippet of their conversation: “If I remember right, doesn’t your marquee out front promise, WHERE LOVE IS A WAY OF LIFE!” It took... Read More

Into the Wind

Here are two important items I want my friends to know: First, the next gathering of the Jake Colsen Book Club will be next Saturday, August 20, at 1:00 pm PDT. I know that’s a bit early in Australia and a bit late for Europe, but I’ve got people from both asking to be... Read More

When God Seems Boring...

I had this email exchange a few months back with a friend in Nigeria who hit a dry patch in his journey. I'm sure he's not alone in this struggle or his questions, so I thought I'd share that conversation here: I'm going through a crisis in my life right now, and I would... Read More

The Unintended Consequences of Well-Meaning Prayers

(First, a personal note:  It finally caught up to me. I'm blaming my visit to Disneyland last week to celebrate a granddaughter's graduation from middle school though I don't know for sure if that's where I got it. But early Monday morning, I came down with symptoms of COVID-19, and a test later that... Read More

Love Seasoned over a Lifetime

A good friend of mine, Jack Gray, passed away last week. That's him with his wife Margaret alongside Sara and me when we first met them in 2004. Many have heard me talk about Jack over the years. He was born in Scotland, served as a missionary surgeon in the Congo at the time... Read More

Where Love Thrives

Love can only thrive where truth reigns. Thirty-five years ago, Sara and I had some friends over for dinner. At the end of the evening, as we walked with them to their car, the husband pulled me aside to tell me something. "Do you know that you talked about yourself all night and what... Read More

The Revelational Adventure

Every day I wake up to the amazing adventure of walking with God through whatever might unfold in my day. Sometimes that is full of joy and wonder; at other times, it's an unforeseen calamity that challenges me to the core of my being. Following him, as best I see him each day, is... Read More
