This week, we celebrated the American holiday of Independence Day, the 4th of July. For our society, this day is a day off of work (for most) and a time for fireworks, waving flags, wearing red, white, and blue, giving props for those who have served in the military, and perhaps even remembering...

Pardon the Mess

Posted by Colby Kinser on

Business and leadership training almost always has some version of "start with the goal in mind." Envision the desire outcomes, define your goals clearly, and design toward the finished product. You can't measure progress unless you know what you're shooting for. And it all makes sense. So, we...

Have you ever wondered how to become a cheerful giver? Does every appeal for funds seem like another financial burden someone wants to lay on you? How can you maintain an eager joy to give when every day’s mail brings another unsolicited request for funds? In 2 Corinthians 9:5-7...

This Saturday, about an hour south of Atlanta, I will have the privilege of officiating the wedding of our goddaughter. This is very likely the closest I will ever come to performing the wedding of a daughter. We have known Ashley since she was 11 when we first moved to Dublin, GA. We quickly...

I wonder what it would be like to have nothing to lose. I know this seems a bit morbid, but if some disaster came and wiped out everything I have to lose, how would I live? If my family, my home, my work, and my possessions were taken away from me ... or I was taken away from them ... how would...

I know she meant well. But to be frank, I got very, very tired of my mom telling me to "be safe!" every time I left the house. Every. Time. Never mind that I do the same thing. That's different. We are careful parents as a society, especially compared to childrearing from just a few decades...

Show Me Some Identification

Posted by Colby Kinser on

Where is your identity located? Not your driver's license or student ID card, but your identity? What gives you the sense of who you are, why you have value, how you want people to know you, what would be a fitting epithet for your life, and so on? Most believers can properly answer...

Posted by Colby Kinser on

This week, I was able to lunch with one of our members near his workplace downtown. The restaurant we chose is known for locally-sourced, fresh, homemade recipes, and I decided to go with the pot pie. It was whatever level is above "Delicious." The server was a cheerful woman who engaged...

Approved Commanders Are Not Ashamed

Posted by Colby Kinser on

Awana co-commanders Kelly and Monica have faithfully served our children for the last several years, but both need to set aside Awana leadership for other responsibilities. We appreciate their dedication and sacrifice.
