No promises!

I’m back from a glorious week at Point Lonsdale writing from dawn to dusk with Saffie the Wonderdog by my side for my twice daily walks on the beach. Michelle came down for the weekend and we lit the open fire. Just the three of us. Is this what heaven is like? I’m off at […]

Alone

I”m looking out over the Pacific ocean at Point Lonsdale trying to pick up some phone and internet coverage. My ration for the day. No car, virtually no internet or phone. Alone except for Saffie the Wonderdog. I’ve grabbed the chance to get away for a week to on work on my next book. Missing […]

Movements in Sweden

I’ll be in Malmo, Sweden in May just across the water from Copenhagen. Talking about Movements. Here’s the promo in Swedish. Hope they said nice things about me. Here’s the promo in English.

Yoda training

I had my dark night of the soul a few years back. For over a year, Patrick Innes helped me survive, find God and recover. He was my Yoda. Patrick trains others to do what he does. I can’t think of someone better to train mentors of Christian leaders. You’ll need to be in Melbourne […]

Movements going, going, gone.

I’ve heard today that copies of Movements that Change the World are running out on Amazon. There is a reason. InterVarsity Press has picked up the book, and will be releasing it in the US on April 4. The text is essentially the same. We’ve added in the 50 page Discussion Guide for groups. There […]

As good as it gets

It’s Valentine’s Day on this side of the world. So here’s one of my favourite final movie scenes from As Good as it Gets. Maybe I like it because there’s a bit of Melvin (Jack Nicholson) in me and a lot of Carol (Helen Hunt) in Michelle. . . We celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary […]

Three empty seats

It was the flight from Delhi to Bangalore. The plane was about to take off. When across the isle I spotted three empty seats—my ticket to happiness and a peaceful, quiet flight. All I needed to do was jump across the isle just as the doors were shut for take off and those seats were […]

Off to India

I’ll be in India until late January visiting our workers in a couple of locations. Not sure if I’ll have time and internet for writing. I’ve set a few posts to drop while I’m away. Here’s the story of one of the locals our team are in India to serve.

Michelle and Jenni

Michelle and I send out a regular newsletter to our friends and supporters. Here’s the one I wrote for December. Dear Friends The standard rule of writing a good newsletter is, “What couldn’t you wait to get home and tell someone about?” That’s what you should write about. Michelle didn’t wait to get home. She […]
