A letter from Paul

On Sunday we shared at The Journey about a visioning and assessment time that I am currently on. Our Lead Team decided to give me a time away from regular duties to prepare for the next phase at The Journey. Matt had a time like this earlier this year.The Journey launched almost 14 years ago. In preparation for the launch of the church the Lewis and Urban families (as well...

KEEPING A GOOD START GOING

I QUITThis past month we were in a series called I QUIT. It was about how the empty promises of resolutions don't work. Maybe we need to quit some things to accomplish the most important things in our lives.   QUIT TRYING TO DO IT ALONEA common theme in this series was about relationships. We can't do it alone. We need to spur each other on towards our best life. Le...

You gotta see it to believe it

When Jennifer and I were first married we lived in Washington state between the Cascade and Olympic Mountain ranges. It was AMAZINGLY beautiful . . . when it was sunny. We had an apartment that looked out over the Olympic mountain range. When the sun would set in the west behind the mountains they would seem to rise up majestically. We loved waking up and seeing new fa...

Are you ready for some football?

I played football in school, well . . . I tried out . . . in 8th grade. I was 4'10" and weighed approximately the amount of a really big pumpkin. I had my sights set on wide receiver. Out away from all the big linemen, catching the ball and running away from people with my speed. That was the plan, until my coach informed me that our team didn't have wide receivers so...

The older I get the more dependent I realize I am. Is that bad???

The older, I mean, more mature I get, the more dependent I realize I am. That seems backwards doesn’t it? We think we’re dependent when we’re a kid but then we grow into independence and become my own person. That’s all true, but what I’ve also realized is. . ....

Good Intentions aren't Enough

Your direction determines your destination.  It's not about good intentions.  Most of us have those, but they often haven't gotten us very far. If it's true that your direction determines your destination, then what direction are you going in?  Even more importantly, what destination are you aiming for? One of the things I've found in my life of trying to...

What the heck is baptism & can I go to Heaven if I don't do it?

What the heck is baptism?  Do I have to do it?  If I don't am I going to Hell?   We're having baptism meetings at The Journey this Sunday (and on May 31) at both of our locations for 10 minutes after the service.  Breathe easy though - no matter who you are, you won't go to hell because you didn't get baptized!  Phew, right?  Your eternal des...
