Christmas in Australia

Christmas in Australia means summer, holidays and beaches. We’re off tomorrow to Byron Bay in northern NSW. Michelle’s sister has a farm we’ll be staying on together with friends and family. They’ve built a giant water slide on the side of a hill using plastic sheeting and a hose. I’ve set a few posts to […]

In Sydney this week

I’m in Sydney this week hanging out with the Acts29 church planting guys (above). They call it a “bootcamp” but the food is great, and no one has yelled at me yet. Also catching up with some early adopters who are learning how to fuel church planting movements. Last stop tomorrow is SMBC where I’m […]

Sharing Isa

It was around 4am. The second night in Malaysia and I was wide awake. I wandered down to the hotel lobby to see if I could pick up an internet connection and bumped into another insomniac—Abdul from Saudi Arabia. Malaysia is a great place to meet muslims.

Missing Inaction

Off to Malaysia tonight to meet our with our team from around the world. Not sure how I’ll go with the blog while I’m away. Back in a couple of weeks.

New Zealand tour

Here I am working hard on Auckland Harbour in preparation for a tour of New Zealand. Thanks to Ian for making it possible. Although next time I’ll skip lunch before I go sailing. Most of it ended up in the harbour.

Jay: Tell us a little bit about your work with Church Resource Ministries? Steve: I’ve been with CRM since 1992 and my main work is in coaching and equipping church planters […]

Out of here

Until further notice, Michelle and I will be on a beach somewhere. . . We’re hooking up the camper-trailer and are wandering off to find a national park somewhere on the South Australian coast. I’ve set a few post to drop while we’re away.

Karamazov for Christmas

I’m a fan of Christian Audio. No they don’t pay me to advertise. I just think they provide some great deals. Here’s one — The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoevsky — for free. UPDATE For a few more days they have the whole Bible on audio (ESV) for just $7.49.
