      Alignment
      150 150 Journey Church

      The car kept pulling to the right. It was becoming more and more noticeable. As I drove along the streets of Clinton I needed to keep a steady downward pull on the steering wheel with my left hand to keep the car centered in the lane. At first I thought this was the natural result…

      Eye-Opener
      150 150 Journey Church

      It was a real eye-opener. One day when I came home from work I said to Sue Ann, “I see it!” It was something Sue Ann had seen for quite some time but I had not. We were about eight years into our marriage and about three years into a time of relational strain and…

      Time and Change
      150 150 Journey Church

      The rolling over of the calendar from 2011 to 2012 forces us to face an inevitable reality of life, a reality that is often unwanted and sometimes harsh. Change. The personality of some people actually inclines them toward change. They like to try new things, drive a different way home just for the fun of…

      Of Cars and Bodies
      150 150 Journey Church

      My first car was a 60’s vintage Volkswagen Bug. It was pale blue with a very distinctive feature on the front end. The preceding owner had tried to push a stalled truck with the VW, but the small car was no match for the heavy truck. Rather than moving the truck forward, the back end…

      Forward
      150 150 Journey Church

      As we consider the way forward after our Summer Celebration, our purpose remains the same: forming followers of Jesus who impact their world. We have been talking together about next steps after these five weeks with no Study Groups and one worship service. They have been good weeks of special celebration … an outdoor baptism…

      Look Out
      150 150 Journey Church

      During the year of 1987, Sue Ann and I were between ministry positions and so we decided to visit churches in our area. The Dallas metroplex offered many choices and so this was a unique opportunity to see how different congregations “did church.” Since we included a variety of denominations among the churches we went…
