While waiting for my daughter to wrap up a rehearsal for ballet, I am reminded again how I don’t mind waiting. It is part patience and part the intovert in me that enjoys hanging out by myself. It also reminds me that this sort of space in my life is necessary for spiritual growth. Down times can lead to the most fruitful seasons in life. Hear this quote from Dallas Willard:

“A successful performance @ a moment of crisis rests…upon the depths of a self wisely & rigorously prepared…” Dallas Willard

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.
