Seize the Day

  {This is a dream I heard about thirty years ago, that I was told at that time it was attributed to the great missionary Hudson Taylor. Hudson was highly concerned about bringing the Word of God to the people of China. In his dream: Hudson found himself standing on a wooden board in the middle of a great ocean. Scared to turn or step away, the Lord told him to take a step forward. As he did so in obedience a board appeared before his foot. Continuing the motion forward, he soon found boards disappearing behind him as new boards appearing right before he needed them.

  Out of this dream, Hudson realized the Lord would provide his needs, only right before he needed it. -a good lesson to learn here.}

Into the Pathetic and Back.


Note: I know some will take this word in a negative context. But as a good friend recently reminded me concerning ruffling the feathers of the prophetic, “ truth comforts the afflicted and afflicts the comfortable.” RF.

Like all things that grow, the childlike prophetic of the ’80s
Has become a bit taller, seeking its elder friends.
Dreams and visions filled this child’s head
As it proclaimed, “I’m a big kid now.”

To the grin of the elders, who watched its awkwardness grow. Continue reading

Good by to Goshen


How do you pick up the threads of an old life? How do you go on, when in your heart you begin to understand… there is no going back. Frodo Baggins; The Return of the King.

There is a lot of wisdom in what Tolkien wrote and I have thought of this comment many times over the last few years. It rings like a voice on the wind in the corners of my mind as I reflect on the fifteen year road I have taken that has brought me to this place.

Fifteen years ago my wife and I were raising dairy goats, had a garden around two acres in size. We got our years firewood from the forest and had a small prophetic ministry that later became a church. At that time, due to the spiritual climate of the area we lived. The Lord led me to join MorningStar’s Fellowship of Ministries. Continue reading

To all the Old Roads


To All the old Roads

For a person who is planning on at least trying to make a living off of words. I find it a struggle some days to put together the words to describe the last several years of my life. After many years of being remotely connected to this thin lifeline during hard times. My mind now plays tricks on me as I wonder how much was real and how much was an illusion of miss-placed hope. Now after a decade and a half of this adventure with a third of it being on staff, a lot has happened, too much to document. But still, I wonder about the value of it all.

The first two-thirds of this saga I gladly defended the ministry as I lived in two different locations in the west. Read nearly all they ever printed and learned many valuable things. To me, it was a “breath of fresh air” compared to the rest of the church at large. Powerful, strong and moving forward in the things of the spirit. It did really seem to my mind to be the strong wall the Lord was raising up in this age.

So I pursued this, gladly without hesitation. Not that all I had experienced before this was somehow wrong, I mean, I have attended several John Wimber meetings, experience a Vineyard church plant and the music of Rich Mullins had introduced me to The Ragamuffin Gospel. So with what I had now found in MorningStar ministries, I seriously felt like I had found something that took off where the teaching and experiences of the Vineyard had changed after Wimber died.
