One of my favorite thought leaders, Sarah Cumming, the Head of Promise Academy, joined me recently to chat about how communities benefit when joy and justice team up. Did it ever cross your mind that justice could be a byproduct of joy? Not me. At least not until Sarah prodded me to think deeper about how God’s Spirit permeates our lives with both joy and justice.

Certainly truth and freedom are deeply connected. Americans think speech should come naturally, freely. We take a lot for granted when it comes to communication. Probably because we’re spoiled rotten by the blessing of free speech. more
On July 4, we will celebrate our nation’s freedom. That day in 1776, after the Declaration of Independence was signed, marked the birth of the United States of America as an independent nation. I hope you are able to celebrate with fireworks, friends and family as I know I will be. more
Chris Legg recently came on Fireside Talk Radio and shared his best life hacks for fathers. Defining Fatherhood We all have ideas about fatherhood. How would you define fatherhood? About comforting?
