Weekend Update

By PaulT / December 25, 2017

A few immediate thoughts to put down for the time being, even though the whole weekend has given me a good deal more to digest. Compass Class: Always great to see Todd Hull back in town and teaching. He’s one of the better volunteers I think Lakewood has teaching and the limitations of the clock […]

Under God and Over

By PaulT / December 19, 2017

An oldie, but a goodie in that it’s stuck with me ever since reading this column. A full read is well worth the time spent, but here’s a “Reader’s Digest” version if I dare try to condense it … ยป New Republic: Under God And Over (Leon Wieseltier) As I watched the Supreme Court discuss […]

Yaconelli Outtakes (Part 1)

By PaulT / December 19, 2017

I still can’t get over how much I’m loving every word of Mike Yaconelli’s “Messy Spirituality.” But I think I’ve at least solved the mystery of why there’s no way I can read this book in one sitting: I just want to hang onto every word, every sentence, every story, every chapter, and so on. […]

Weekend Sermon: “Staying on God’s Best Plan”

By PaulT / December 19, 2017

The latest series of sermons by Joel has been a great one. Now that my work schedule has cleared up ever so slightly, I might even have some time to explore it in a bit more depth. After soaking in the Saturday service and watching the Sunday webcast, however, a few quick thoughts are in […]

Weekend Sermon: Being a Loyal Person

By PaulT / December 19, 2017

This weekend’s sermon was one that applies rather universally to all of us – loyalty. Each of us has friends, family, coworkers, or others that we have some degree of commitment to that requires us to excercise some amount of loyalty. And on the surface, it would appear to be an easy box to check […]

Weekend Sermon: Freedom From Struggling

By PaulT / December 19, 2017

Just to set the stage for proper context, here’s a fairly lengthy transcription of part of the sermon’s opening and the Scripture referenced … Hebrews 4:3 … As one who’s never really set out to earn any massive income in life, it’s easy to occassionally look around the modest dwelling I call home and feel […]

Wednesday Sermon: “Because You Say So”

By PaulT / December 19, 2017

A few belated thoughts from Wednesday … First, Paul Osteen’s sermon last weekend must have been popular. When I got to the bookstore on Wednesday, I was told they were out of CDs from it and to check back after the service when they might have some replacements. Afterwards …. still no replacements. That’s a […]

Wednesday Worship in Review: Music That Erases the Distance

By PaulT / December 19, 2017

It’s early in the morning, but I’m still reeling from the worship project that we recorded last night at Lakewood. Among the things known going in were that there simply wasn’t a shortage of new tunes to unleash to the world. Dare I say it, but a new CD is overdue in my mind. This […]

Wednesday Sermon :: What Do You Have In Your Hand? – Paul Osteen

By PaulT / December 19, 2017

Although still new at this blogging venture, I try and steer clear of simply stating that any sermon is particularly great. I mean, they can all qualify for such praise, but its too easy to simply leave it as a self-evident truth without substantiating the reason for such praise. But that’s pretty much the sentiment […]
