    2018.

    This marks the last post of the year as we’ll be on sabbatical from December until early next year. Hearty thanks to everyone who showed up, spent time here and gave us their sentiments online or in person. I believe the only way to change the world is one person at a time. You’re our one person. 🙂 As I wind down 2018, these are some of the thoughts I’m carrying with me: You don’t have to have a big title to wield powerful influence. My greatest joys and deepest disappointments in the marketplace have come from people who either chose to value their positions and serve well or absconded…

    Fired Up – October 2018

    Ministry in the workplace can seem daunting. Particularly when you think about how much needs to change and wonder where to even begin. Fired Up is a new monthly cheer-you-on package from Kairos that helps you break things down into simple daily/weekly actions that you can commit to.   Focus Areas: Gratitude – what one thing am I thankful for about my work/workplace?

As Christians we can easily get so caught up discussing soul and spirit that we forget that we still have physical bodies that are a fundamental part of who we are. Physical bodies that we are supposed to wisely steward throughout the duration of our lives on earth.   How do we think about our bodies? When you look at yourself in the mirror what do you see? Can you look at yourself in the mirror? What do you believe about your body? Who/what shaped those beliefs? For a people whose image and likeness comes…

    The Gate Of Life Givers

    This gate is centered on those who deal with the business of life – both physical and spiritual. Many of them fall in the five-fold ministries (apostles, prophets, pastors, teachers & evangelists), the medical profession and those who play a critical supporting role to them. “We’re travelers here, Only passing through, And every breath we breathe is coming back to you. We’re strangers here, I know it’s true, That death is just a door that leads us home to You.” – Steffany Gretzinger (All That Lives Forever) I’ve been thinking about all the things concerning life I could write about. About those who care for our spirits and souls through…

    The Gate Of Finance, Commerce & Industry

    Most of this post is going to flat-out be about money. Because we have a major problem with our perceptions about money and wealth as believers. And if we can find freedom in God’s truth then all other related matters like industry and commerce will align. First things first. “But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction.  For the love of money is a root…
