I just caught the tail end of Couple’s Fear Factor and happened to see two people win a million bucks. It is interesting to me this reality TV phenomenon. In particular the genre of the Apprentice and Benefactor show what our society is shooting for. I read today that over 400 people lined up in Cincinnati to get a chance to audition for Apprentice 2. Here’s the deal: the search for significance, wealth and fame is really inate to all of us. We want deep down to be “the guy” or “the gal”. When are we gonna see that this drive is God-instilled? When are we gonna wake-up and realize that only our relationship with God can fill this drive for significance in our life? Fortunately for you and me, God is patient. God knows that we will keep searching for that thing to fulfill us and at some point (earlier the better from my point of view) we will find Him.

I'm one of the pastors at First United Methodist Church in Lexington, Kentucky where I've served for the past thirteen years. The sub-title of this blog is "Grace is no accident" which happens to be the defining reality of my life. God's grace (gift) is the reason we have breath in our lungs and hope in our hearts.
