Good Grief

We're uncomfortable with grief. It’s why we say dumb things at funerals, “They’re in a better place.” “I guess God wanted them.” It’s why we tell a kid who just lost a pet “Don’t worry, we’ll get you a new one.” And while it is great that another puppy coming, that fact does not diminish the loss…the pain felt because of the one who is now gone.

Making Healthy Decisions (a pause)

A couple months ago I wrote a blog post about two key components of decision making for me and Liz. I wrote about the first rule: Wait until you and your spouse are on the same page, and NEVER pressure them. At the end of the post I said that I would write part two of that post by the end of the week. I didn’t.

Making Healthy Decisions (Part 1)

I wrote a few weeks ago about our journey from Ithaca to Ireland, and it got me thinking about a two key factors that Liz and I have found crucial in helping us make important decisions.

Making Small Talk

Even typing the word "small talk" gives me stress. Last summer I was back in the States for a week to pick up Hannah & Erin and bring them to Ireland. While there, I also attended a conference with Hannah for few days. While we were there, another pastor that I've known fairly well for a number of years came up to chat about our move to Ireland. It was an awkward conversation. After it was over Hannah started laughing at me (once the other person had left of course). It was worthy of being laughed at.
